Jil Sander is coming to KL!

The long weekend is a blessing that I can rest at home watching tear-inducing, albeit cliched Islamic themed dramas on Astro (they are my mother's firm favorite, no one was allowed to change channels once Astro has those showing. Good job Astro on playing on the banal emotional card. You just know, despite the triteness of it all, how to feed on Malay/Asian culture. Brilliant marketing ploy, I must say).

Being the mall rat that I am, I took the opportunity of an extra day off to have a look at the shops in Pavilion, a rarity nowadays, now that I work and live outside Kuala Lumpur. Lo and behold, what I found when I was browsing the two levels of Pavilion's luxury area:


Apparently TENC (The Emperor's New Clothes) is being replaced by Club 21's another project! Looks like it's time for TENC to wrap up. I guess politicians and menswear don't go hand in hand?





 I'm genuinely excited for the arrival of Jil Sander, together with the other directional labels: Lanvin (gasp!),  Alexander McQueen (double gasp!), CarvenProenza Schouler, 3.1 Philip Lim, and Alexander Wang, among others.

The wait is finally over...

H&M has finally landed on our shores and it's about time for us to have a democratic shopping experience. The opening of this latest Club 21 addition, on the other hand, presumably will bring in a different kind of shoppers/ fashion enthusiasts to Bukit Bintang. I'm waiting with my fingers crossed that they stock good selections of merchandise at a competitive price. And perhaps I don't need to travel down south anymore for my end-of-season fix...

I am happy and sad at the same thing. Accesibility means more common and I don't like any tom, dick and harry with money and no taste carrying the bags that I like. Would prefer they continue doing so with Vuitton or Gucci.

Now you mentioned it I do see some trendy people out there who are into those typical Gucci/LV/ Dior labels just because well, the labels.

Hopefully those kind of 'fashion' people are oblivious of the existence of Jil!

Is this for women's or men's? I hope they bring in some stuff for men but i have a feeling it might be more of the latter.

I presume it is for both genders, though I might find every excuse to squeeze myself into the ladies' stuff had they don't bring in pieces for guys.
