If you haven’t heard of The Swagger Salon, we bet you’ve definitely heard of the streetwear brand LANSI. The Swagger Salon was set up by the creative force behind the clothing brand at the time as the only means of selling their stuff. The online boutique has since gained plenty of traction among those of us who love a good statement-making garment, and now they are moving off the internet and into a physical shop at the heritage row of George Town! Given the aesthetics of the buildings there, they worked with interior designers Dare Solution to ensure the store echo their successful online business by utilising their trademark delivery boxes as the main design basis. The flagship store will house all the multi-label brands under The Swagger Salon such as TAIKOR, NSFW, and some lesser known indie Penang brands like CNLW, Touchwood, and Solesmith.
Did we mention that there will music by DJ RE DFNE and bottomless Tiger beer and satay (!) throughout the night as well? If you’re not going to Genting for Urbanscapes, why not make the trip up north?
