Arched to perfection
TOUTED as “the brow expert”, Browhaus’ allin- one treatment Browgraphy is set to take one’s arches to greater heights.
Comprising Colour Tweak and Brow Shaping, customers can expect total transformation as the shape and colour of your brows are reworked to perfection.
Colour Tweak adjusts the colour of your brows to your preference, using vegetable dye for safety. It only takes 10- 15 minutes to alter one’s appearance. Lighter brows have a softening effect while darker brows sharpen features and add definition.
For Brow Shaping, one can choose from Classic Threading ( removes stray hair strands in a row), Modern Tweezing ( offers precision for a well- defined brow shape) and Thread+ Tweeze ( combines threading and tweezing).
Besides The Curve in Petaling Jaya, Browhaus now has an outlet at Avenue K in Kuala Lumpur.
Located on level one, what’s unique about this new store is that it shares its premise with waxing expert Strip; this is considered a first in Malaysia. AFTER what seemed like a really long wait, Roger Vivier is finally in Kuala Lumpur. The brand known for its buckled pumps opened its stylish doors early last month showcasing a decor concept resembling the original store.
With two large window frames dressing the corner of this boutique, it resembles the unique decor concept of the original Maison Roger Vivier in Paris.
Bringing creativity to life in this boutique is the fact that is it fashioned like a real house with an interior that captures the codes of elegance that is truly French while evoking an eclectic artistry true to the Vivier name.
Selected pieces of furniture sourced from Parisian antique stores or commissioned from contemporary artists, bring to mind the home interiors of the founder; two antique Luigi XV wooden chairs, enormous sculpted mirrors; vintage lamps and contemporary art paintings. This décor brings forward a luxurious contrast of styles and tastes from the classic to the modern.
Roger Vivier considered art as one of his major sources of inspiration and in keeping with that, creative director Bruno Frisoni alongside brand ambassador Ines de la Fressange, brought to Kuala Lumpur an echo of the new Parisian spirit, filled with eclecticism and fantasy.
Lovers of the brand will be able to find its emblematic and modernised signatur re models amongst the decor.
The signature Trompette pumps embellished with the classic 1965 Buckle are of course prominently on display and you can also find the icon nic Miss Viv and the new Viv bags.
For those who prefer the new more rounded or flatter buckle, the 1954 Choc heel or the Stiletto Sphere heel which was inspired by the 1953 Talon Boule that Vivier designed for Marlene Diectrich are also available.
In addition, there are also the other wellknown shoes – the Belle Vivier, the Prismick line with its trademark geometric découpés and the Sneaky Viv sneaker which are fun additions to the collection.
The Spring/ Summer 2016 collection is also currently in store. With a distinct 70s vibe, the shoes and bags come in pop prints, retro flowers and bright colours. – Nadine Fernandez
