Plaza Singapura’s new Nomadx also combines eating and shopping with gaming for an interactive experience.

 

Taobao fans can now take their shopping sprees offline at the new retail concept Nomadx at Plaza Singapura. Spanning 11,000 square feet across two levels of the mall, Nomadx houses Singapore’s first physical Taobao store, as well as 17 other brands offering fashion, beauty, consumer electronics, food and drinks.

 

Taobao is only one of the online stores that has a physical outlet for the first time. The other brands include clothing rental service Style Theory; fragrance design and mixology label Oo La Lab; Digital Fashion Week’s multi-label boutique; and F&B brands Teapasar and By Peapods. But while Nomadx is bringing digital shopping into the physical realm, it’s also enhancing the shopping experience through digital technology. For instance, at the Mamonde skincare counter, you can place any product on a reader and have its information displayed on a screen. Over at Style Theory, you can scan QR codes to receive sizing and styling recommendations. Fashionistas can also shop for new-to-market Nomadx exclusives from fashion brands, such as Karl Lagerfeld’s Pins collection of bags and accessories rolled out in partnership with Robinsons.

 

If you are more used to spending time in the virtual world than offline, you can choose to take part in a “game”. When you sign up through one of the store’s tablets, you’ll be assigned to a “tribe” based on the shopper’s profile you relate to best. You’ll then be able to receive products and deal recommendations based on your tribe profile, as well as see what other shoppers in your tribe bought. To complete your shopping experience, Nomadx also houses F&B outlets Bizen Wagyu Steakhouse By Aston Soon, Coco & Frank, and Waa Cow! Express.

 

 

I dont really know how this will work lo. So many brands from Taobao youre not gonna be able to enjoy as with ecommerce. And with taxes and gst, is there really a need for a physical store? but anything lo. another place to kill time, same as the honestbee one.. if it lasts.

Got tao bao price or not? That's the main reason most buyer willing to forgo warranty, long shipment delays, risk. Not the company's brand.

Rental, utilities, salaries, high overhead.

It's unlikely you get the same online price.

Jack Ma is reducing his stake in Ali Baba.

He is likely to burn investors money since it is listed in US.

I had a chat with the guy manning the jbl kiosk at nomadx. He says the area is more for customer experience rather than to do sales. So he showed me the various new jbl products like the Android headphones.

1st off....just remove the 3% transaction fee for overseas buyer or reduce it off 1% as per previous posb/dbs bank nets payment.... That will help boost the sales over the online portal.

 

Physical store.... Hmmm well, think will be like those kickstarter physical display stores..... Lots of browsing but many will still go online to buy those products.

Yes completely right. Business strategy.

 

Just like Apple Physical Store. They can always sell online but to convert android users or new smartphone users to Apple, sometimes we need to touch, feel and test before we buy. After that they got you.

Don't really care about the store itself. Think the bizen (Japanese wagyu beef place opened by astons) is within this nomadx?

Its not for me to tell these big companies how to do business

 

but Retail is not the right way to go. Online is the future.

 

:D

 

Unless its an interactive experience which is not possible

 

to replicate at home. Maybe touch and feel playing with the

 

new gadgets. That's why some retail concepts will never die.

 

Massage Parlours are retail by nature. I always like it for the 

 

touch and feel and the interactive experience.  [thumbsup]


Say no to harsh artificial chemicals

that pollute the earth

and go natural. [thumbsup]

Went to Bizen last night. It was okay... Even for the $$$ paid... OK only. Not a place I'll specially make a trip down to eat but won't mind popping in if I'm there. Be warned though, the beef serving portions are very tiny, so to have a normal meal, you must order the double up just to have a comparable steak as what you'd normally get in a regular astons. So if want to compare prices with other places, will need to compare with double up bizen prices.

Overall does not really match up to established jdm steak joints in Japan. Worth a visit once or twice but nothing special.

Stick to the regular Astons.

Singapore's first phygital concept store Nomadx opens its doors.

 

Here are nine stores you have to check out at NomadX this weekend. Shopping has never been savvier.

 

1. Taobao

1.jpg

 

The world's biggest e-commerce website, this Chinese online shopping store is no stranger to many. But Taobao enthusiasts will know that buying from the e-retailer can be a hit and miss affair.

 

Now, Alibaba Group has taken the guessing game out of the picture by launching its first-ever retail concept store at NomadX. You can now head down to Taobao Home's showcase and physically touch and feel the latest trending home and decor products. Expect to see items such as sofas, coffee tables and cookware.

 

To buy, simply scan the QR code attached to a piece you like and you'd be directed to pay for it on Taobao's website. What a treat.

 

2. JBL

2.jpg

 

This is JBL's first-ever store in Singapore, so expect it to be filled with their coolest and latest products.

 

Get your hands on products built-in with the ultra-intelligent Google Assistant, such as voice-activated speakers - the JBL LINK series - with artificial intelligence to aid you in your everyday tasks such as streaming music, solving your queries and controlling other smart devices around your home (i.e. Smart TV).

 

All you have to do is to activate them with simple voice commands like "Hi, Google" and "Ok, Google". We're sold.

 

3. Teapasar

3.jpg

 

Tea lovers will like this one. teapasar, a Singapore-founded marketplace for all things tea-related, has set up its first brick and mortar store in NomadX.

 

Featuring over 300 different teas from both local and international brands and plantations, customers are able to sample teas based on their preferences before making a purchase.

 

The coolest part? Teas from teapasar are identified with their ProfilePrint technology, where you'll get the lowdown on the leaves' origin, terroir, cultivar and harvest date by using a metabolomic fingerprinting model that was developed by the NUS Food Science and Technology Programme and A*STAR's BioTrans.

 

This machine assesses the taste profile of each tea and its organic composition before matching it to your taste preferences according to your bio.

 

4. By Peapods

4.jpg

 

K-beauty lovers, you're in for a treat. By Peapods will be retailing Singapore's first "CF Magic Mask" (from $75 to $730) that will be exclusive to NomadX.

 

For beauty junkies suffering from acne scars, redness and blemishes, this facial LED light therapy magic mask promises to solve those woes and reduce pain and inflammation by boosting your skin's metabolism that helps in the regeneration of skin cells.

 

Furthermore, their Spatulaworks natural skincare products are gentle to your skin as they contain zero traces of alcohol and synthetic surfactant. You don't need to convince us further.

 

5. Mamonde

5.jpg

 

You'd be able to find a wide range of products from popular South Korean skincare brand Mamonde's store in NomadX, but what's interesting is the brand will be displaying an interesting interactive screen at its store for the first time.

 

There, shoppers will be able to compare a selected range of merchandise side by side to get a deeper understanding of them and make an informed decision on which is the best product suited for their skin.

 

We recommend their new Flower Toner Series (a 250ml bottle costs $25) - these bottles of miracle solutions are richly packed with a variety of flower extracts for a smoother, healthier complexion. But go on down to the store to check them out for yourself.

 

6. Oo La Lab

6.jpg

 

Homegrown fragrance mixology label, Oo La Lab, has launched its first-ever specialty store at NomadX.

 

At their shop, you will be able to purchase their eponymous Eau de Parfum Oo La Lab Mixology Kit ($188) and play chemist in the comfort of your home to create a one-of-a-kind aroma based on your preference. Super fun.

 

If you're looking to prep your apartment with soothing scents before a house party, limited edition signature candles in 500g ($88) or 1kg ($128) sizes will also be available at their outlet.

 

7. Style Theory

8.jpg

 

Bringing their digital rental service to an offline retail space, Style Theory is one of the stores you have to visit. Why? Their physical shop at NomadX features the "Smart Wardrobe of the Future", where mirrors are enhanced with RFID technology and serve as fashion advisors.

 

Shoppers are able to get an in-depth rundown on the product, price, sizing and other recommendations with just a simple flash of the garment in front of the mirrors. How cool is that?

 

The mirrors currently work for a selected number of products, but we're excited to see what else they can do. Get $30 off the first month's subscription when you subscribe to Style Theory at NomadX ($99 instead of $129).

 

8. Karl Lagerfeld

7.jpg

 

Looking for something designer and limited? At the first level of this multi-label retail space, you will be able to splurge on bags and accessories from Karl Lagerfeld's Pins Collection that will be exclusive to NomadX.

 

This collection is doused with silver-toned sparkly pins that scream fun and flirty - a perfect accompaniment to your party dress this Christmas.

 

Prices range from $199 for their printed cashmere scarf to $699 for the fringed leather bucket bag pictured above.

 

9. Revolte

9.jpg

Singapore's premium fashion label, Revolte, has launched one of Turkey's au courant bag labels, Mlouye, at its store at NomadX.

 

Exclusive to the space, the bags from Mlouye (prices range from $433 to $664) are for those who are minimalist at heart - you will adore the clean-cut silhouettes and aesthetically pleasing structures, not to mention they are all crafted in high-quality cow leather.

 

There's no better time than now to reward yourself with an early Christmas present.

 

NomadX is at #01-67 and #03-65 to 69 (the space formerly occupied by Hamleys), Plaza Singapura, 68 Orchard Road, Singapore 238839. Opens daily from 10am to 10pm.
