New Look, The New Shopping Destination in West Jakarta
When I walked around Central Park Mall in early November, I saw some banners saying that New Look, “London’s Hottest Label” would open its new store in the mall. I was curious about it since I’ve never heard of New Look before. Then one day when I reported the Rexona Shopping Experience at Central Park, I saw that New Look was celebrating the grand opening of its store. What a coincidence! So I entered the store to check out the items there.
As I got the press release, I knew that this was the first New Look store in Indonesia and it’s managed under PT Mitra Adiperkasa (MAP). New Look has come a long way since the first store in Taunton in 1969. It now has over 1,000 stores worldwide, in the UK and Republic of Ireland, Europe, the Middle East, Singapore, Russia and Poland. After opening its store in Central Park Mall, it opened its second store in Bandung Supermall. There will be another 8 stores to open in 2012. It’s also stated that New Look “translate the latest trends from the catwalk, celebrities and the streets as fast as we can, providing our customers with fashion that is bang on trend – and great value to boot”. And I found what it claimed to be true, their apparels seem to adapt recent trends such as the polkadots or bold colors.
What’s exciting about New Look is that the items (especially the handbags and shoes) are quite affordable. Have a look on my picks and see their reasonable price.
