Shopping in Seminyak, Bali
I have just returned from a fabulous trip to Bali & Gili Islands. Despite spending most of my time relaxing/eating/drinking, I always manage to squeeze in a spot of shopping…
I’m going to give you the low down on the five must-visit shops in Seminyak. Having trawled the various shopping precincts/streets of Seminyak I want to save you the time wandering in the agonizing humidity so you can get back to that villa pool, pronto! So, make a bee line for these five:
(Jalan Kayu Jati No.8X)
Get swept away by a glimmering palette of sun drenched colour in Mister Zimi’s eye-catching prints. Their silhouettes are a nod towards the mod era of the 60s, with exclusive prints that conjure up a vestige of vacations past.
If you’re anything like me and stick to the safety of a monochrome wardrobe, then it’s time for a palette refresh with some of their wonderfully whimsical tropical prints. These pieces are perennial fashion favourites.
Prized possession: My pineapple dress; it’s an oldie, but a goodie (yes, it is black and white…)
(Jalan Kayu Aya 39)
Mimpi Mannis hosts a collection of fabulously bright shoes and accessories guaranteed to get your pulse racing. I can assure you, you won’t come out empty handed! And the best thing is, their sandals are only around $40.
Favorite pair: couldn’t decide, so I bought two!
Head to www.mimipmannis.com if you’re dying for a pair of these amazing sandals but aren’t heading to Bali anytime soon.
(Jl Laksmana Oberoi 117x, Seminyak)
A french inspired lingerie label made locally in Bali, this store guarantees you will walk out feeling ultra confident and sexy toting a black Gooseberry bag in hand.
Black lace may be rooted in seductive evening intimate wear, but not under the watch of Gooseberry’s designer, these collections are made to be worn and seen under everyday wear. Think sensual and rebellious.
The lust-worthy collection: Innocence; with it’s delicate black lace detailing and bra styles to suit all breast sizes. I also love the ‘Effortless’ collection for everyday comfort.
Innocence Longline Bra
(Jalan Kayu Aya No.53)
Monochromanics eat your heart out, as this place boasts an array of beautiful, achromatic, sleek feminine designs (if colour is your jam, then get your fix at Mister Zimi). This store is all about neutral tones, lace detailing and drapy elegant silhouettes. Head here for affordable office approved attire and luxe weekend wear.
Hanging out to wear: my boho style kaftan
(177x Jl.Kayu Aya Oberoi)
Delight your inner sophisticate with Magali Pascals’ demure silhouettes and intricate lace and crochet detailing.
Offering a neutral colour palette of timeless black, white and cream, their soft vintage inspired silhouettes and figure flattering cuts bring you effortless style.
Made in luxe silk and fluid natural fabrics, these classic pieces will stand the test of time.
