Thanks to chrystal, I got an invitation to the Girls’ night out at Samantha Thavasa last night at their Ion boutique.
For those who are not familiar with the brand, Samantha Thavasa (ST) handbags, was founded in 1994 by Mr Kazu Terada (CEO & President), based in Tokyo Japan. It has since taken Japan by storm with all their pretty handbags designs, endorsed by many international celebrities like Victoria Beckham, Paris Hilton and Maria Sharapova, just to name a few. As of April 2008, there are 236 free standing stores in Japan.
Samantha Thavasa carrys quite a few lines under their collection. Different lines are create to suit the wants and needs of the modern, fashionable girls and women of today. ST in Singapore carries the following collections:
a) Deluxe (simple and luxurious): For the ladies who enjoys the finer things in life. This collection consists of bags made of leather. Designs are also suitable for use from the office.
b) Samantha Aimee Collection (key collection for their handbags) : For girls/ladies who prefers casual styles or those who likes statement pieces. This collection always come with ribbons and charms. Collabrations with different characters (eg hello kitty, disney) make the collection very fashionable and fun.
c) Linea J (collection made in Japan) : Handbags are produced in Japan. For gals who like things japanese made, this is the collection to look out for.
d) ST Petite Choice : for the collection wallets and small leather goods.
e) ST Kingz : men’s line, suitable for unisex as well.
Got to know ST during my 1st visit to Japan in 1999. Fell in love with their bags since then. Its amazing that ST continues to create such nice bags in the last 10-12 yrs. This brand offers a good mid-price pricing. Remember to check out the store the next time you are in Orchard.
