A familiar name in Jakarta’s fashion trade, The Papilion has a pleasant surprise for the second half of the year. The multi-label boutique has just launched its first pop-up store at Plaza Senayan, one of the major shopping centres in the city. And the name could not be more apt – the pop-up store is titled The Little Glass House, a witty reference to its elegant glasshouse HQ in Kemang.
If you’re excited whenever you hear Comme des Garçons, Dries van Noten, Simone Rocha and Junya Watanabe, then you are no stranger to The Papilion. Though not all brands could be found at their pop-up, there are plenty of reasons still to get you giddy with excitement until the end of the year.
The Little Glass House showcases popular pieces from similarly sought-after labels. As you may have guessed, pieces from Comme des Garçons universe (Comme des Garçons Comme des Garçons, Comme des Garçons Play, Black Comme des Garçons x Nike, and more) take the centre stage, alongside Junya Watanabe men, women and denim line; Jimi Roos embroidered tops; and Paskal delicate dresses.
Not just limited to clothing, the boutique also ensures that you come out from the store in a whole new ensemble. Upgrade your kicks with Comme des Garçons x Converse sneakers, and you’ll be having a hard time to divert your attention Bao Bao’s glossy bags and purses, which come in seductive metallic and platinum colourways.
Located across SOGO on Plaza Senayan Level One, The Little Glass House is easily spotted from its unique structure. While the sturdy glasshouse-like construction dismisses the impression of a temporary shop, the absence of doors and solid walls lessens the intimidating sensation that normally follows whenever one visits a high-end boutique.
Though compact the area may be, don’t expect it to be overstuffed with products. The pop-up displays just the ideal amount of products so visitors can browse the coveted collections from one rack to another with no trouble. It’s easy to forget that The Little Glass House is, indeed, a pop-up store. As such, bear in mind that it’s only running until December. You sure don’t want to miss a good reason for a retail therapy.
The Little Glass House by The Papilion is located at Level One of Plaza Senayan Mall. The pop-up boutique is open every day from 10 am to 10 pm. For more information about The Papilion, visit www.thepapilion.com.
