Long live retail: Following in the footsteps of other shopping sites, FashionValet has set up a brick-and-mortar store five years after it got its start in 2010. It appears there’s still value in physical shops after all – especially for people who want to feel, see and try on products before they make their purchases.
The 2,456 sq ft store is spacious to say the least: it’s mostly minimal but sophisticated, with gold accents set off by plush carpeting and seating. It currently carries a curated selection of clothes, along with accessories, bags, and shoes as well as beauty care products from over 400 brands available at FashionValet. Think household names the likes of Alia Bastamam, Biyan, and Mimpikita, as well as Kittie YiYi, Nelissa Hilman, Soonaru, Sean & Sheila, Wunderbath Co. and many more.
As for accessories, there’s the very popular Daniel Wellington, which has been relaunched on FashionValet, as well as Cluse watches and Dipped Row earrings and necklaces. Take note that the in-store selection will be regularly rotated, so check in every now and then.
Also, along the marble wall that dominates the left half of the store, the good people of FashionValet have installed three tablets where you can, you know, shop online as well as offline. Now you get the buzz of two separate, very distinct experiences: the retail therapy moment of walking into a store and trying on new things, and then there’s the rush of thrill at receiving – and then unwrapping – a package delivered to you, long after you’ve forgotten you ever clicked on ‘Checkout’ (we’re kidding, we never forget). Thank you, FashionValet.
