Does anyone know what happened to Crystal Jade?

I saw that two branches - Nex and Toa Payoh -have closed down.

Hi iFirefly,
I am aware that it is bought over by LVMH but why do they need to close down TP and Nex? LVMH bought over Charles & Keith but the outlets are still running as usual.

Maybe not closed down, but 'upgrade' to East Meets West kinda restaurants ?

I am not sure abt the one in TP but the one in Nex has been taken over by Cotton On.

Are there any other branches still open for business?

My husband just bought some items from Tiong Bahru today, and the Holland Village ones are still open.

i think it is just business decision to close the Nex outlet. too many restaurants there and the rent isn't cheap. a lot of shops changeover when their lease was up recently and Nex is still undergoing quite a major reno, despite it being opened for like a few years only.
