Don’t you all agree that shopping is a girl’s best ‘happy’ therapy? Bet all of you are looking forward to the grand opening of Robinsons Kuala Lumpur, located at Shoppes at Four Seasons Place! I’m so stoked to be invited to the official launch that kicked off with a special VIP Night last week! Together with celebrity fans as well as other members of the media the event kicked off with a specially curated shopping and retail experiences, exclusive gifts, special promotions, fun activities, giveaways and more reflecting the unique Robinsons touch.
Among the VVIPs who attended were Paul Delaoutre, President – Retail of Al-Futtaim Group; Christophe Cann, Group Chief Executive Officer – Asia of Al-Futtaim Group; Ashley Tang, General Manager and Director of Robinsons Malaysia; YBhg. Datuk David Ban, Executive Director of Venus Assets; and Zahir Kelvin Ong Abdullah, Director of Venus Assets.
After a welcome speech by Christophe Cann, we were treated to a special performance by songstress Dayang Nurfaizah, who was decked in a stunning attire by Alexander Wang. Do you know that its available exclusively in Robinsons and Lavish Alice? If you think that’s the end of the night, you got it wrong. We were treated to a #curateyourwonderful ultimate retail experience that’s certainly unforgettable. More fun and revelry continued as we weaved through the flagship store that was transformed to showcase pop-up spaces of curated wonders. psst… The flagship store sits on an impressive retail space of 200,000 sq. ft. over four floors.
Some of the notable highlight include the Virtual Fashion Box where I took the opportunity to videographed my OOTD and get it broadcasted live on LED screens!! Also not to be missed was the kaleidoscope photowall to capture wonderful insta-worthy moments that night.
Walking thru the store, I chanced upon carnival-like games such as the Claw Machine, Wheel of Fortune and Ring Toss for a chance to win wonderful prizes from See By Chloe, Hugo by Hugo Boss, Adidas Originals, Dyson, KitchenAid, Nespresso and many more.
The night is still young, thus together with my blogger friends we headed for Robinsons’ #SecretlyWonderful Speakeasy Pop-Up Bar. It’s set up exclusively for the event where Ryot Jones, Malaysia’s up-and-coming jazz-funk band, pulled the crowd in with their energetic live show. On the deck were Twinkies, the DJ Duo, who fused the bar with tunes, passion, energy and rhythm throughout the evening.
Lastly, to complete the night, some of us participated in a good cause by purchasing a #CuratedCollection Mystery Box for only RM100. All sales proceeds would go directly to Mercy Malaysia’s Palu Relief Fund to help communities affected by the earthquake and tsunami in Palu, Sulawesi. Each box contains surprises worth RM200 or up to RM2,000!!
Ooh…ya, I also forgot to mention about Robinsons Digital Passport. This Robinsons Digital Passport allows us to scan our personalised QR code at every touch point to redeem a gift via Robinsons’ special #CurateYourWonderful promo during the launch. The digital passport can be downloaded from www.curateyourwonderful.com.
It was definitely one of the best launches I’ve attended this year. True to the Robinsons brand value to provide an experience that goes beyond ordinary shopping, the grand launch is a prelude to the many wonderful experiences that shoppers can expect whenever they shop at Robinsons Kuala Lumpur, Shoppes at Four Seasons Place. Expect to find anything for all budgets here, and have your wish list and heart’s desires fulfill.
