‘Retail Therapy and Cocktails’ at Park Street Mews will be held from 3 to 7 June, including late night shopping.

Opening hours are 5 p.m. to 10:30 on Wednesday 3 June, 12 noon to 3 p.m. and then 6 p.m. to 10.30pm on 4, 5 and 6 June and 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. on 7 June.

The much-awaited ladies VIP night will bring together a fusion of fashion, food and fun to the Mews. A designer clearance pop up store will transport Park Street Mews into a retail therapy hotspot as three entrepreneurial ladies, Catherine Obrenovic, Latika Alok and Leigh Miller, forces behind Touche, Glitterati and Azure Luxe, together with Originals Furniture, get together to create a five-day shopping experience of sheer bliss. 

The deluxe pop up store will be open for late night shopping for the savvy Colombo fashionistas who can shop, socialise and network over cocktails and delicious tapas. The Mews is the perfect setting for this five day/night extravaganza.

Touché: The house of Touché was founded in December 2012, borne from a passion for fashion shared by both Heidy Rampinelli and Catherine Obrenovic. Through Touché, their ideal closet comes to life. An elaborate wardrobe composed of purity and minimalism, yet also intricacy and sophistication, revealed through a palette of monochromes and exclusive prints. The alliance of chic and comfort, for the day, evening and night.

The collections are designed for the modern woman, associating noble textiles and materials imported from Italy such as fine silks, delicate lace and high-grade viscose. Touché’s spirit is a resolutely feminine silhouette: sober, glam and audacious; an intimate signature for women made exceptional by their choices

Glitterati: A Singapore fashion house, Glitterati was founded in 1995 by owner Latika Alok. Glitterati’s haute couture pieces are fashioned in luxurious silks and chiffons. They specialise in glamorous gowns and chic cocktail dresses.  Glitterati has been involved in lots of high profile events since its conception. At the first Silver Screen Awards held in Singapore, it was the preferred label of several local personalities in the MTV Asian Awards, Miss Singapore/Universe and Singapore Jewelfest to name just a few. With the success of Glitterati and its celebrity following, Latika Alok was given the nickname “The Dresser” by the Singapore press. The collection is available for private viewing in Colombo.

Azure Luxe Beach Wear: A lifestyle clothing brand featuring gorgeous swimwear, beach wear and resort wear inspired by hot summer days, steamy tropical nights sipping cocktails, a love of global travel and palm tree lined beaches and chic resorts. The collection ranges from luxurious timeless kaftans and cover ups to boho dresses.

Designed to wear over your bikini at the beach, or jazzed up for day and evening wear, Azure Luxe conjures up a chic tropical lifestyle perfect for any occasion. Designed by Leigh Millar, an Australian swimwear designer, the collection is designed in Sri Lanka using high quality exuberant fabrics which are sourced worldwide from all corners of the world. The collection is also available at Aussie Swim Store, Crescat Boulevard, Colombo.

Originals: About individuality, a simple, clean, contemporary style seen in the mix of old and new teakwood furniture and the contrast of assorted materials of glass, stainless steel and iron. The aim is to create a modern living environment that can translate to any country and lifestyle.  A special 20% discount for the event week only and a 40% on all serax and sati kebon items.

Ladies will be greeted with a free flow of cocktails, hosted by Café Francais and Curve each day from 7 p.m. to 8 p.m.

An exclusive door gift by Unilever via Lux awaits the first 100 ladies each day when they make a purchase from the pop up designer store.
