Is­land guide: Bali

Paradise - - Traveller -

RE­TAIL THER­APY

Away from the ram­shackle shops sell­ing tie-dye and Bin­tang beer T-shirts, Kuta’s Beach­walk mall (beach­walk­bali.com) is the stop for the big in­ter­na­tional fash­ion play­ers as well as some lo­cal names such as beachy Bam­boo Blonde (bam­booblonde.com ).

It’s all about fash­ion in Seminyak: ground zero is shiny, air-con­di­tioned Seminyak Square shop­ping cen­tre ( seminyak­square.com) on Jalan Laks­mana. Use it as a base to ex­plore the sur­round­ing streets, which host a vast spread of in­ter­na­tional de­sign­ers pro­duc­ing lo­cal fash­ion, much of which is adorned with bead­work and hand­made lace. Many en­sure the work­ers pro­duc­ing these in­tri­cate clothes are paid fairly: the list should in­clude Lulu Yas­mine, Ma­gali Pas­cal and Natasha Gan (lu­luyas­mine.com, ma­g­a­li­pas­cal.com, natasha­gan.com) for knock‘em-dead evening wear and state­ment pieces, while Pura Vida (pu­ravidafash­ion.com) and Bi­asa (bi­asagroup.com) will set you up with fun party dresses and su­per-stylish men’s and women’s re­sort wear.

Love matchy-matchy? Lila Lane (lil­lalane.com) is a great start to find a match­ing shoes/clutch/ belt combo.

An­other Is­land Liv­ing’s (an­oth­er­stores.com) Indo-In­dian blan­kets are lust­wor­thy, while Kim Soo (kim­soo.com) has impeccable home­wares and jew­ellery as well as a stylish lit­tle cafe.
