Blook Boutique in Bangsar
A boutique that has found a loyal Kuala Lumpur fan base
Blook (short for ‘be looked at’) is a popular Kuala Lumpur fashion boutique with five stand-alone stores all over the city. An excellent neighbourhood clothing store, the flagship outlet along Jalan Telawi Lima, Bangsar started out as a small concept store but quickly grew popular for its fun, flirty and casual clothes and work-wear at very affordable prices.
Arguably the jewel in the Blook crown is its stylish collection for plus-sized women (called Blook+): it is unique because most KL fashion stores cater for petite-sized women – whereas sizes for this line go up to XXXXL. The store also sells funky fashion accessories such as bejewelled belts, headbands and jewellery.
Looking a lot like The Gap's posh sibling, Blook is bright, modern and well laid out; the furnishings are very simple with beige carpets, lots of mirrors and warm lighting giving it a spacious, relaxed vibe.
Customer service is the best in the Bangsar area with friendly, helpful staff members who will help you style an outfit if you ask, as well as enthusiastically fetch extra sizes to the changing rooms. The store has regular promotional sales, which mean even greater savings off their already-low prices. They have a website where you can look through their new arrivals (it is free shipping anywhere in Malaysia), but we recommend you shop in-store where you can sometimes find cool sales items – like a black, wraparound dress for only RM15!
The brand’s casual-wear collection comes in various styles. First off, there is the vintage line which looks very romantic (think summery dresses) with pleated skirts, lace and ruffles featuring prominently. Then there is the retro-looking collection in floral prints and bold colours – this includes screen-printed T-shirts and boot-cut jeans.
Besides the casual wear collection, Blook also stocks a mix of grown-up, high street pieces suitable for working women. The high-quality work clothes collection ranges from unfussy boxy tops, cropped cardigans and no-nonsense light jackets in striking colours, to slinky black dresses and eyelet-embellished blazers that are perfect for that office cocktail party.
