Typical Singaporeans like us are always looking to pick up a good deal on branded labels when we travel overseas, especially ones that can’t be found locally. When we speak of Japan, Burberry Blue & Black Label comes to mind almost instantly. But ever since Burberry decided to bring their own brand into Japan, the blue & black labels were re-branded to Crestbridge Blue & Black Label.
Long story short, Crestbridge remained a hit among the younger Japanese folk because of its youthful designs and friendlier prices (below $1000). And they can only be found in Japan, which explains why Singaporeans are so crazily attracted to the brand.
