Are You Ready for +IT?

After years of waiting for another hip multi-brand boutique that houses stylish second labels by world's top designer (post Belle and TriBeCa), the wait is over and thanks to fashion purveyor Dato' Farah Khan and the Melium Group team, +IT was conceived and had its soft opening recently. Housing the latest ready-to-wear collection from D&G by Dolce & Gabbana, Just Cavalli by Roberto Cavalli, John Galliano and Costume National, +IT is predicted to be the next best thing in fashion retailing scene of our country.

While D&G, Just Cavalli and Costume National have been previously brought in by Belle and Philosophy Men respectively, this is indeed the first attempt ever made by Malaysian fashion retailer to bring in the quirky, zany and infectious designs from the eccentric John Galliano himself through his own label, John Galliano. For Galliano, only the women's ready-to-wear collection are brought into the country while for the other three labels, fans can expect a full range of ready-to-wear and accessories for both men and women.

At Just Cavalli, put your attention to the details. Suede jacket with western-inspired embroidery works, ironed-out cherubic image print on the back of the jeans and belts are the details one should look on. For D&G, menswear for the Spring/Summer 2007 collection are inspired by the American Old Western days while John Galliano incorporates Japanese graphic elements into his latest offering with white and royal blue dominates the color palette.

Therefore, the need for daytrip to the Lion City just to get our hands on the latest D&G or Cavalli will probably unnecessary now with the opening of +IT. Again, a million of thank you to Dato' Farah Khan and Melium Group for their effort. Cheers!
