Shopping/ Lifestyle: Robinsons Flagship Store Grand Launch #CurateYourWonderful

It's been tooooo long since my last event in Kuala Lumpur! Glad to be invited for Robinsons Kuala Lumpur's highly anticipated flagship store Grand Launch! The whole VIP Night was filled with specially curated shopping and retail experiences, lots of hors d'ouevres & champagne, special promotions, exclusive gifts, fun activities (that contribute to charity too!), giveaways and more.

In case you're wondering, Robinsons Malaysia Flagship Store is located at Shoppes at Four Seasons Place. The flagship store sits on an impressive retail space of 200,000 sq. ft. and has four floors. Starbucks Reserve (first in Malaysia), Croisserie Artisan Bakery and La Bodega (opening soon) provide shoppers with F&B places to relax after a day of shopping. The exterior alone was amazing, what more when you step inside to see the range of quality brands that Robinsons carries! The best part was, all promotions and activities extended over a period of 4 days so that everyone could celebrate in style. 

Robinsons has always been highly regarded as the benchmark to meet in terms of shopping experiences in Malaysia. I was blown away not only by the brands they carry which are not easily found in Malaysia, but also the trendy fashion pieces, coveted lifestyle products and beauty goodies that you know I love. 32 years after the original store in Japan Tun Perak closed, Robinsons made it's comeback in 2007 at The Gardens Mall and this new flagship store is set to excite and become the next shopping paradise in the heart of KL. If you're looking for carefully curated collections and an all-rounded shopping experience, including a team of Personal Shopper Suites service, Robinsons is the place to be.

The beautiful host of the night, Sazzy Falak! 

Malaysia songstress Dayang Nurfaizah wow-ed the crowd with her performance and got everyone dancing! Here she is wearing a stunning attire by Alexander Wang which can be found exclusively in Robinsons.

Let me take you on a little tour, a very small sneak peek of what the store has to offer!

The beauty section, which includes my wishlisted brands like Laduree! So pretty! They also have a good mix of luxury (Chanel, Dior, Shiseido, Elizabeth Arden, etc) and Korean brands (Huxley, ) so beauty lovers are really spoiled for choice here.

Wall of Dyson 😍

Sharon trying out the famous Dyson Air Wrap Styler to curl her hair! I wanted to try it too but too bad my hair was already styled up by Number76 lol. This curler was only launched for about 2 weeks and they have it already, told ya Robinsons is a trendy place!


There's also a very insta-worthy Korean hair salon cum cafe on the ground floor called Leekaja Beauty Salon. Everyone found this to be a great photo-spot!



Women's section on 1st floor. I'm so coming back here again to shop!


Men's section on 2nd floor.

The fun continued with various showcase pop-up spaces of curated wonders throughout the store. Guests could play carnival-like games such as the Wheel of Fortune, Claw Machine and Ring Toss for a chance to win wonderful prizes.

Another highlight of the night is the #CuratedCollection Mystery Box where guests could purchase a mystery gift for only RM 100. Each gift contains surprises worth RM 200 or up to RM 2,000! (I regret not playing this) All sales proceeds go directly to Mercy Malaysia's Palu Relief Fund to help communities who were affected by earthquake and tsunami in Sulawesi, so you got to shop and do good at the same time too. :)


There was also an interactive kaleidoscope photowalls throughout the store which Sharon & I tried on basically each floor. XD


This Virtual Fashion Box is featured in almost all the invited guests' Instagram because we got to be videographed in our fancy OOTDs and it was broadcasted live on the LED screens. We were abit shy at first to try it out but y'know, we werked it in the end 😆

One of the most popular pop-ups of the night is definitely this neon-light filled #SecretlyWonderful Speakeasy Pop-Up Bar set up exclusively for the event. Now, y'all know I love speakeasy bars so this was definitely my scene. Bartender was super busy and everyone was dancing to Twinkies and Ryot Jones as they filled the bar with tunes and rhythm throughout the night.

After we were done touring the place, Sharon & I grabbed our champagnes and proceeded to find more photo-worthy spots around the store (which isn't hard considering the whole place is so beautiful). Spot the photographer who secretly snapped photos of us while we were taking our mirror selfie 😂 If you realised, we purposely matched our outfit for the night hehe #bffootd #twinning. If you'd like to read more about our outfits, you can check out Sharon's post here!



Ending with a pic with Eros and Anis! Finally met them IRL 😁 Shoutout to my babe Sharon too for accompanying me to the event, we had so much fun! It's great to meet old and new media friends again! 

Overall, Robinsons Kuala Lumpur is a great place to shop and is really unlike any other retail stores in Malaysia as they bring shopping to the next level. It's an insta-worthy place with many interactive experiences so you will find something new with each visit. There is something for everyone at every price point so you can SHOP TILL YOU DROP! This is definitely a must-visit place for me the next time I'm back in KL city!
