KL Retail Tour:

These are just select photos from our retail tour given by the one and only Azuwan while we were hanging out in Kuala Lumpur. Personally, I think the streetwear scene in KL is more vibrant in comparison to Singapore, and retail assistants and owners are a hundred percent more friendly (just being honest). I found that when you visited these stores, there wasn’t that sixth sense feeling of someone judging you as soon as you stepped in either, which I found very pleasant. Another thing I loved about these retail spaces we visited was the effort put into conceptualising the interiors and sometimes even the exteriors of the shops. It simply completes the physical shopping experience and draws the line between shopping online and paying a little more to do it in-store.

I’ve only put up a select bunch of photos here, so check out the full scoop here on Straatosphere, Your Street Space!
