Arched to per­fec­tion

The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - TRENDS -

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
