I’m a man accompanying my lady friend to Seminyak Village. What is it and would there be anything for me? Seminyak Village is Bali’s iconic shopping centre that is redefining the mall experience. We are joining new names with reliable favourites to create a one-stop destination experience. You can eat, buy and chill with us all in one day.
Sounds good. Where can I bring a special friend to impress her? Tiger Palm. You can tell her it is Mamasan’s new dining concept (yes, this is the creation of award-winning street chef Will Meyrick). Expect all the cool touches and excellent food you associate with Will’s restaurants.
It sounds like my date is on. I need new clothes. Where can I go? Head first to MC2 Saint Barth, Italy’s best kept secret (you heard it first from us). They are a men’s resort brand that offers every clothing option, from linen shirts and casual T-shirts to swim shorts and smart trousers. Just next door at the multi-label M Resort are AQ/AQ and CLVII, two cult brands of London and Paris. Inspired by urban street wear and art, their apparel has got more attitude than Kanye. Joining them is Hackettt London where polo shirts for both leisure and sports are aplenty.
Afterwards, make your way to the German luxury purveyor, MCM, offering quality products that are both functional and stylish. Who knows you might get your hands on its iconic Color Visetos bag.
If you want something closer to Bali’s cultural identity, Naga by Milo is a store that has a shirt for every occasion. Designer Milo Migliavacca is an Italian-Balinese whose reinterpretation of traditional batik has made him a destination brand.
At ODD (Our Daily Dose), Nike, Adidas and Puma have you covered from sports to play. If the dress code reads smart casual, go to Aldo and Rococo.
Cool. I’m feeling good and I want to buy something special. We love the designer eyewear selection at Optik Tunggal. There are the sportier styles of Oakleys and Tag Heur to dressier pieces from Cartier to Bvlgari. Otherwise INTime by Time International will have anything small to fancy matching your look, with timepieces from Bell & Ross, Ball, Hamilton, Zenith and many more.
Sounds like a plan. Any advice or tips before my shopping and date trip at Seminyak Village? If you want to look your best, go to the good fellows at Toni & Guys Essensuals for a quick trim or shave. The Spring Spa at the rooftop has many services to help you pass the time as it’s highly likely you finish shopping before she does. Remember to book her a couple’s massage and you can thank us later.
