If you’ve worn your feet to stumps from all that impatient tapping as you wait for Club 21’s annual Bazaar sale, it’s time to give them a break. Because everyone’s favourite luxury multi-label boutique has just opened a permanent outlet store at IMM. Yes, really.
While you won’t find many investment pieces here (the boutique has been strategically stocked with classic workwear and fun casual threads), what you get is a shopping experience that still feels like classy Club 21.
The monochrome décor is minimalist chic, plush carpets cover the floor and heavy velvet curtains swing across the entrances to the spacious fitting rooms. Service, too, is friendly and knowledgeable – our assistant tactfully advised us to take a size up for a particular piece as “this design runs small”, and she was right.
On the racks: Men’s and women’s apparel, accessories and shoes from the likes of Marc by Marc Jacobs, DKNY, Blackbarrett, Calvin Klein Platinum and Paul Smith – all at 60 per cent off!
We spotted Marc by Marc Jacobs’ signature mouse flats in a couple of colours and styles on the shelves, along with a gorgeous wool Calvin Klein winter coat and cute pouches and scarves that would make fab Christmas gifts.
Our own haul: A furry black DKNY sweater for just $196 (usual price $490!) that we plan to wear on an upcoming winter holiday.
New stocks are expected to arrive every couple of weeks, so bargain-hunting fashion fans may want to set aside some time for regular trips to IMM. (FYI, there are also Coach and Agnes B outlets in the mall, and more new outlet stores are in the pipeline.) As a bonus, finish off your shopping trip with a feast at hotpot fave Hai Di Lao, which now has a restaurant on the third floor.
