Popular fashion brand, Style Nanda, recently opened its third flagship store last Friday right in the bustling shopping hub of Myeongdong. This particular location certainly stands out from it’s other locations, towering as 5 floor powder-pink hotel. It definitely has a bit of that Grand Budapest Hotel feel crossed with a 1950s vibe.
Like any respectable hotel, the 1st floor holds the lobby. There’s a cute little concierge desk, hotel keys hung on the wall and buffet with a nice selection of their 3CE makeup collection and cosmetic accessories. Right now they are also giving away special 3CE gifts if you spend a certain amount, like mini hand mirrors (₩30,000), 3CE square pouches (₩70,000) and 3CE mini brush kits (₩100,000). You can take your receipt to the on your way out to claim your gift.
The spa is on the 2nd floor and has an even wider selection of their cosmetics. There is a nice little makeup room set up there with plenty of mirrors to test products to your hearts content. I really like this floor in particular because it reminds me of a 1950s movie star’s dressing room. There’s a water draw bath filled with flowers, marble sinks, gold-framed mirrors and velvet cushioned seats. It’s beautiful!
The “rooms” are on the third floor, along with a selection of their clothing. Also, they have an event right now where they give you a ring of keys and allow you to pick a key that you think will open one of the hotel room doors. If you guess correctly, the door will unlock and you get to pick a mystery gift box from the room. My boyfriend and I each got a turn and I picked the correct key! I won a 3CE Creamy Lip Color in “#12 Me Me!”
The clothing selection continues on to the 4th floor which also has a variety of socks, hat, shoes and of course jewellery. I couldn’t resist helping myself to a super cute suede cuff. This floor also happens to be the “Laundry Room.” There are cute washing machines and dryers set up there. There’s even a wall stacked with laundry detergent and plastic chairs to sit in while you wait for your laundry…for girlfriend to finish shopping.
The Pink Pool Cafe is located on the 5th floor, along with a bit more clothing and a wall stacked with jeans. The cafe itself is designed like an American 1950s pool area, beach chairs and all. They have a small menu of coffees, teas and juices along with select desserts. We ordered a cappuccino and cafe latte, which to be honest, weren’t all that great. We also ordered the cotton candy ice cream. It looked really pretty, but wasn’t anything special. Personally, if you want to take pictures of certain visually appealing items I’d say go for it, otherwise I’d say skip it.
If you need a bit of a break after all that shopping there’s a nice little rooftop lounge with giant ruffled pillows to relax on before to go. Overall, I feel that the clothing selection was a bit lacking, but they definitely have a lot of cosmetics to choose from. Their jewellery selection is pretty good too. So I definitely recommend checking it out if you’re a fan of Style Nanda. It’s a super cool store and definitely worth a walk though.
