Honestly, I don’t know what I’m loving more now, the fact that I had a great time at Coach’s opening at Paragon just now, or the fact that I discovered that my DSLR has so many tricks up its sleeve. Playing around with its settings I discovered it had a digital filter, and the rest as they say is history.
The first Coach flagship in Singapore (measuring 3400 sq ft) that is modelled after their Bleecker Street boutique in New York City, looks like some penthouse apartment you’ll find off Central Park; polished, glossy and luxurious.
Spacious, brightly-lit and well-stocked, I felt like a kid in candy store. Everything was within easy reach, rows upon rows of bags, SLGs and other accessories laid out like a buffet of tantalising desserts. And that’s exactly what I wanted my snapshots to reflect, candy-coloured lovelies that look good enough to eat.
And even though I was the only blogger present I had a really good time, having had the opportunity to chat with representatives from both Coach and Valiram Group. Call it a cheap thrill if you like, but catching glimpses of Singapore’s press royalty (Nu You’s Grace Lee and Harper Bazaar’s Kenneth Goh) made my evening as well.
Check it for yourself at Paragon anytime you’re in the area. Definitely an experience worth savouring. And don’t forget to check out the limited edition Coach Parker Metallic Slim Tote and Coach Parker Metallic Small Hobo (both in Rose Gold, 50 pieces each at SGD1129 and SGD899 respectively) that were made specially to commemorate the opening.
