Onitsuka Tiger Opens its Flagship Store at Pavilion KL
Japanese fashion brand Onitsuka Tiger has opened Malaysia’s flagship store in Kuala Lumpur on 30 November 2021. Located at the iconic Pavilion Mall, the Onitsuka Tiger store is a standalone 2016 square feet space located on Level 3, Pavilion Elite. Minimalist in design, it offers an engaging in-store experience for fashion, design and sneaker connoisseurs. The store’s minimalist interior features a textured, timber sneaker wall showcasing the premium Nippon Made series which is made in Japan. It combines traditional craftsmanship with modern techniques and styling. Also unique to the store is the capsule collection showcasing “The Darjeeling Flowers”. Onitsuka Tiger’s Creative Director Andrea Pompilio collaborated with Toyoki Adachi, the designer and art director of the textile graphic brand nowartt, incorporating their completed graphics into selected collection pieces. For this festive season, a 2meter tall Christmas Tree decorated with stuffed teddy style tigers dressed in this distinctive floral print was added for a playful and artful tone to the store’s interior.
Unveiled first at the Milan Fashion Week presentation in February 2021, the Autumn Winter 2021 collection is inspired by the majestic nature of the towering Himalayas in winter and the trekking and hiking boom of the 1970s. With cooler climate at year’s end, and as opportunities for travel resume, fashion lovers will appreciate products centred around the technology and functionality that is the origin of Onitsuka Tiger, as well as the brand's aesthetic design details that are full of craftsmanship with meticulous attention. A comprehensive curation of apparels, shoes and accessories are now available at this new store.
