Can we just say – finally, something exciting in Malaysian retail.
Hot on the heels of the rise in bespoke retail trends, thirtyfour, the accessories label by local designers Shuennkee Chong and Linda Chong have opened thirtyfour.bespoke, catering to the quietly stylish woman. thirtyfour is not new to Malaysian retail; they started as a small design/retail studio in Bangsar and made a name for themselves crafting and selling made-to-measure leather sandals for men and women. Their retail offerings quickly increased to leather bags and accessories and in 2010 they launched their first jewellery collection, ‘Dipped’ in collaboration with Nini Ramlan. In December 2010 to the collective support of their loyal fans, thirtyfour opened its first stand-alone retail store in Bangsar Village 2. thirtyfour.bespoke, located in Publika, is their second store.
The allure in thirtyfour lies firmly in design. Their bags embrace a stylish functionality that is timeless, something any design and fashion fan will appreciate. The thirtyfour aesthetic transcends into their store as well, each store (thirtyfour and thirtyfour.bespoke) reflects the quiet elegance and quality of its products.
thirtyfour.bespoke carries their seasonal collections, bestsellers, and the new customizable collections. Shoppers can pick out their own gems and settings, as well as engrave personalized letters and words on charms. They can also choose different skins from the leather repository for selected designs, aided by the on-site craftsman. With prices at RM 120 upwards, thirtyfour offers a unique retail experience at affordable prices; as boyfriends (and girlfriends) everywhere breathe a sigh of relief: Shopping for that something special, is now at your fingertips.
