Hol­ly­wood celebri­ties love their sneak­ers, as do Sil­i­con Val­ley’s top CEOS. Yes, we mean Satya Nadella of Mi­crosoft, Sun­dar Pichai of Google, Larry Page of Al­pha­bet and Kevin Sys­trom of In­sta­gram who have all been seen in Lan­vin’s lux­ury kicks. But the mai­son isn’t just one of the OGS of the sneak­er­sand-suit set. Their menswear de­signer Lu­cas Ossendri­jver’s dis­tinc­tive in­ter- pre­ta­tion of Old World el­e­gance filled with re­laxed sil­hou­ettes and elab­o­rate work­man­ship could just be the rea­son why peo­ple are flock­ing to the brand. He’s man­aged to stay rel­e­vant and fresh through­out the 11 years (and count­ing) that he’s been in charge—which is an eter­nity in fash­ion.

And this is why Lan­vin has opened it’s first flag­ship store in Malaysia, at Pavil­ion Kuala Lumpur. On­line shop­ping’s great, but noth­ing beats the ex­pe­ri­ence of try­ing a gar­ment on and get­ting a feel for it against your skin. Some say shop­ping’s a chore, but is it re­ally, when you’re pre­sented with the best se­lec­tion of bags, for­ward-think­ing ready-to-wear and tra­di­tional suit­ing op­tions pos­si­ble? The clean, cream and black 2,040sqft space il­lu­mi­nated by a grand chan­de­lier is strik­ing yet straight­for­ward. It sim­ply says: wel­come—and that’s why you’ll be see­ing us there very of­ten in­deed.

The Lan­vin bou­tique is lo­cated at Lot 2.10.02, Level 2, Pavil­ion Kuala Lumpur.
