7 Things to do this weekend: 17 & 18 September 2022

From exciting store launches to a luxury pop-up, here are seven exciting activities to include in your weekend plans:



1. Learn about the new wave of luxury fashion at the Dia Guild x Starhill Pop-up

When: 6 to 25 September 2022 | 10am – 10pm daily

Where: The Starhill Entrance Foyer, KL

Embodying the concept of “inclusive luxury”, Dia Guild believes that premium design should emphasise on a variety of factors that include a focus on artisans, slower production processes, and open interactions with many cultures. Rather than being a symbol of elitism and wealth, the artisanal platform has curated a stunning selection of local and regional brands that are striving to make luxury fashion more inclusive. Brands available at the pop up include Alt Collection, Argent Studio, Feanne, Fern, Garden of Desire, Kelvin Morales, Neil Felipp, Olena Jewellery, Pink Jambu, Talee Studio, and Zikurat. There will also be poetry reads, panel discussions, and live music performances to keep you entertained all day.

Follow Dia Guild on Instagram to get the latest updates.


2. Visit the newly refreshed Isetan The Gardens store

When: 10am to 10pm daily

Where: GF to 3F, The Gardens Mall, Mid Valley City Kuala Lumpur (The Table is located on Level 3) 

For the first time since opening in 2007, Isetan The Gardens recently unveiled a refreshed look offering a streamlined variety of products and an all-new dining floor dubbed “The Table”. The retail destination now features homegrown, regional, and international labels for menswear, womenswear, children’s wear, beauty, household, and sporting products all within the store—making it a one-stop location that caters to families and friends shopping together. 

This timely update is underscored by the entry of “The Table”, Isetan’s dining concept which was first made popular at Isetan The Japan Store. Curated with authentic Japanese flavours in mind, the concept comprises a collection of seven restaurants and one bar. Out of these, six are currently open, namely Jyu Jyu Yakiniku (pork-free), Tamaruya Honten Teppanyaki (pork-free), Tonkatsu by Ma Maison (non-halal), Mo-Mo Paradise (non-halal), Takumi Craft Bar (non-halal), and Menya Appare (non-halal). The two remaining establishments—Taverna by The Tokyo Restaurant (pork-free) and Kintsugi (pork-free)—are slated to open soon.
