Event | Tommy Hilfiger Store Launch V&A Waterfront
Btb squad (Tegan&I) have had a busy two weeks partaking in the launch of the new stores in the V&A Waterfront Mall. To start the week off I am doing a super quick review of the Tommy store. Its the country’s first Tommy Hilfiger store, so its pretty big for our little seaside towns premier shopping mall.
The store itself is not very big at all, however houses all the essentials in menswear, womenswear, accessories and shoes with great wood finishes and chic touches to the interior. I knew I would be late to the event — because I had university commitments — so I popped into the store earlier that week to try on some things and look around. The staff is really friendly and helpful so be sure to pop in and have a look at what they’ve got.
Readers are always most concerned with prices, and appropriately so. This is for the high end shoppers of course but I thought for the quality, and status, of the brand prices were quite reasonable! I love their shoes and handbags, which I thought were specifically well priced and great quality.
Since I arrived slightly tardy to the event I wasn’t able to give the store a proper look on the event night but was treated to canapés, drinks and the usual fashion folk chatter with some of my favorite bloggers and magazine editors. Some local celebrities were invited to parade around the store too & we each got a custom embroidered Tommy towel with our initials on it! The only snag was that the event itself was really packed, I found my choice of the Ushanka hat was not too smart as I had to dash out of the store for air quite a few times. Its super hot inside my furry hat, which seemed to cause quite a stir. Even Jen Su ran over to stroke it & compliment it with her american accent, before running off to chase someone of higher social standing (LOL). It was a good night with all my favorite peeps. Keep an eye out for our quick look post tomorrow.
