KABINET's first pop up boutique and BERNARD CHANDRAN's Spring/Summer 2017 collection

We could not have chosen a more appropriate location to have our very first 'pop up boutique' then the very luxurious St Regis.

Working with the senior management of St Regis Kuala Lumpur since the very beginning when we were the first to hold an event utilising their state of the art 270 degrees floor to ceiling led screens in their massive ballroom, it was only natural to continue using this exclusive premise.

While discussing the more fun aspects of which bags will be used for the runway to showcase Dato' Sri Bernard Chandran's Spring/Summer 2017 collection, it was brought to our attention that the hotel's boutique would be ready very soon. Once we set eyes on the space that was still under renovation, we knew that it would be perfect for our bags. All that was left was to keep our fingers crossed for renovation to be completed in time for the event.

The event was held on 22 November 2016 and as promised, the St Regis Boutique was ready.

The St Regis Boutique looked liked it was specially design to display KABINET’s exquisite collection of Birkins and Kellys by Hermés

On display were some of our extremely limited edition bags that have previously not been displayed or posted on our social platforms.

The event itself was held at the elegant Brasserie. Showcasing the unique work of Dato’ Sri Bernard Chandran that this time focused on combining art and fashion to create ‘wearable art’, models accessorized with bags from KABINET and jewelry by Elegance Club strutted around whilst guests enjoyed a lovely hi tea.

Even to the untrained eye, it was obvious that the collection was heavily inspired by the beautiful Japanese Edo mountains and other Japanese elements including cherry blossoms. Combined with carefully chosen Birkins, Kellys and Constance from the KABINET collection, the models looked stunning. Again, we have chosen to highlight that the bags are classy yet can be fun when matched with the right outfits. Men too can join in the fun as the multitude of colors Hermés is known for includes some very masculine options.

Following up on our promise to host an event soon after the successful birthday party in September, Her Royal Highness Sultanah Kalsom was in attendance as the guest of honor. Our other guests consisted of a good mix of Kuala Lumpur’s elite and the youthful up and coming.
