The season of giving can be quite stressful when you have a long list of family members and friends to buy presents for, as time and ideas can be quite limited. Most of us will head to shopping malls to look for festive gifts, and with this in mind, we went to Pavilion Kuala Lumpur to complete our Christmas shopping.
Pavilion houses a huge variety of shops; one can find luxury labels like Fendi and Gucci, to fashionable brands such as Superdry and Mango, and of course, cosmetics and multi-brand stores. During our walk-through last week, we visited four stores at Pavilion to in search of trendy gifts – find out where we went to and what caught our eye below!
Leading UK urban clothing brand Superdry has recently opened its doors at Pavilion last month and offers Japan-inspired fashion items for both men and women. Mostly consisting of high quality tops, bottoms and denims, Superdry Pavilion also carries sneakers, sling bags and accessories such as wallets, belts, sunnies and headphones.
Our picks from Superdry Pavilion: pink ladies sneakers (RM369), men’s tee (RM149), sling bag (RM169), headphones (RM259).
Malaysian-made brand Tizio is an accessories haven with its colourful selection of footwear, bags, bracelets, earrings and more. Their items are inspired by the season’s latest trends and are quite affordable, so you don’t have to worry about over-shooting your budget here.
Our picks from Tizio Pavilion: Gold-black chain and leather bracelet (RM69), pink envelope clutch (RM49), ballerina flats (RM49), purple sunnies (RM49).
3. Common Thread
Multi-brand store Common Thread is also a newcomer at Pavilion, and offers a different angle to personalizing your own style by housing global lifestyle brands in its store. You can find heritage brands such as Havaianas and France’s Bensimon, and also new fashion labels such as Allegrina, Hoola and Thread 365. Whether it’s flip flops, bags, bracelets, shoes or quirky lifestyle items you’re looking for, Common Thread is definitely worth a visit.
Our picks from Common Thread: red necklace by PIESA (RM124.90), Swappeez sandals (RM119.90), Hoola sunnies (RM144.90), Urbanears headphones (RM255), cloth pouch (RM24.90).
If you’re a beauty junkie, we don’t need to introduce NARS to you. Having opened its doors mid of last month at Pavilion, NARS has been the hot topic among make-up fans because now we don’t have to travel all the way to Singapore or Bangkok to get our hands on their products anymore! If you have a girlfriend or a sister who loves cosmetics, we can be sure that she’d be happy to get a NARS gift this Christmas.
Our picks from NARS Pavilion: Light reflecting loose powder, Pure radiant tinted moisturizer with SPF30, Oil-free pore refining primer, Semi-matte lipstick in Jungle Red.
