Cloth and Sash
Catering to a young and hip shopping crowd, Cloth & Sash is a boutique in Bangsar that is great for its playful collection of inexpensive yet stylish and trendy clothes. What makes Cloth & Sash unique is that some of its clothes are inspired by current runway trends. The boutique’s new arrivals are never priced above RM129.90 which, considering its location in trendy Bangsar, makes it great value. White and turquoise walls, potted plants, white bird cages with flowers entwined through the bars, mini white picket fences sectioning off different areas and wall decals of flowers, birds and butterflies give the place a very whimsical feel.

A great place to let your funky inner child loose, Never Follow Suit is a great little boutique along Jalan Telawi 2, Bangsar.

Popular with the fashion-conscious urban KL male because of its unique menswear collection, the store is very retro-cool with buffed concrete floors, colourfully-upholstered chairs, wooden cabinets, tufted carpets, pendant lights and large black-and-white photos on the walls.
