Life is about gaining knowledge through experiences, which is why we are so excited to present Esquire Singapore’s annual signature event—Esquire Neighbourhood.
On Saturday 16 November 2019, we will be bringing to life the world of Esquire Singapore with a full day of fun and immersive activities that's suitable for the whole family and designed to equip participants to build a life that matters.
With a mission to add value to the community, we will be taking over the Duxton neighbourhood with 25 activities across 12 locations in the area. The activities range from food, fashion, fitness, lifestyle to engaging debates, talks and musical acts; you're bound to find something that's of interest.
The best part? Most of the activities are free!
To give you an idea, we’ve curated a lineup of some of our favourites as an example of how your day at Esquire Neighbourhood could go.

From 10am to 6pm, be part of Ermenegildo Zegna's autumn/winter 2019 runway show that's set in the Milano Centrale station in Milan or have a one-on-one conversation with artistic director Alessandro Sartori—all through a virtual reality experience that's a world's-first for the fashion house.

Boost your creativity and collaboration skills at an improv masterclass run by actor, host and entertainer Jon Cancio.

What better way to end your eventful day than to sit down for drinks and a movie—but under the stars.
