Goodness me! Beauty and fashionistas in Malaysia have been so spoilt recently with the introduction of so many new and popular beauty and fashion brands, I’m so afraid to wake up and find out it’s a dream LOL Pinch me!
On second thoughts, don’t pinch me. I bruise easily.
The newest brand I’m aware of to enter our market is UK fashion brand, Cath Kidston. Any fans in the house? :D
Cath Kidston is most famous for her vintage designs or what they call “Modern Vintage”, being the use of vintage English heritage prints on modern items. The most popular print that is easily identified with Cath Kidston is the rose, which was one of her earliest designs.
I hestitate to peg Cath Kidston as just fashion because aside from bags and pouches (I honestly thought that was all there is!) there are many household items too, if you’re into that sort of design. I personally am not into the vintage or shabby chic look, but I can’t deny feeling a bit of nostalgia looking at the prints. I can just see the apron hanging from the door of a white kitchen cabinet in the traditional English style, a tea pot on the table, biscuits on the side…
So let me take you on a quick tour of what is supposed to be the region’s largest Cath Kidston store for now, previously housed in MidValley Megamall, KL :) Update 2016: The Cath Kidston store at Mid Valley Megamall is now closed.
