On 12 February we celebrated the launch of our new brand focus and the opening of our new store in art mall, K11 with a wild carnival themed party. Konzepp is a creative, collaborative space and is now much more than a multi-brand store and platform, it is now and most importantly a branding powerhouse focused on promoting the brands to the next level. Our new K11 store offers womenswear, menswear, footwear, accessories, jewellery, eyewear, timepieces, headwear, fragrances and even a dessert counter, as well as our iconic ‘think-tank’ table for guests to come chill out at.
For the launch event our new store was adorned with carnival theme decorations, hosted playful games from our childhood such as hopscotch and Wheel of Fortune, featured popcorn and cotton candy machines and a helium gas tank station for making balloons. Each of our partners hosted a brightly-coloured stall fitting in perfectly with our collaborative carnival theme!
