Last Saturday i had a fine opportunity to attend a pre-opening gathering of a very special boutique. It was quite unexpected because i only received the invitation from April on midnight the day before as i was MIA the whole day.
LuxOnU is a parallel importer of luxury products established in Malaysia since 2009. Founded in Zurich, LuxOnU has also been in other countries such as Singapore and Shanghai.
All products that are brought in by LuxOnU are genuine and are imported from USA and Europe. Some of the brands they bring in are like Louis Vuitton, Gucci, Dior, LongChamp, Coach, and Prada to name a few.
The products varies from handbags to purses to shoes and to perfume. To sum it up, anything luxurious!
The best part of it all is that LuxOnU offers these products at a more affordable price compared to retail stores! LuxOnU even hosts handbag parties and events that are open to public and the products are sold with up to 60% discounts!!
When i heard about what LuxOnU is doing, i knew i had to go see it for myself.
So on that Saturday, i arrived at LuxOnU around 7pm just in time for registration.
LuxOnU is a pretty neat place. Although it’s not very big, it’s rather spacious as the place was not cluttered with bags.
It’s nice to have a close view on the bags and even get to touch them without the hassle of asking for assistance like how you would at a retail store. No one giving you disapproving looks and all, you know what i mean.
There were brands like Coach, LongChamp, Gucci, Bally and Dior; though they had more of Coach and LongChamp. However, the number of bags displayed here are probably not even half of the number they have during LuxOnU’s open events.
All the items are in mint condition and they still have their tags on them. Although i personally think that the price difference is not jaw-dropping-ly different, i still think that the prices offered by LuxOnU is still good.
RM 240 for that pretty white Coach wristlet, i could have bought it on the spot if i wanted to.
Besides bags and stuff, there’s a little cafe at the back of LuxOnU that sells pastries and cakes. Sweet Indulgence is a humble family business in designer cakes and cupcakes.
As we were mingling among each other and taking photos of the boutique, LuxOnU kindly served sushi for the guests to nibble on.
Later after that, we received a warm welcome from Marcus of LuxOnU followed by pastries from Sweet Indulgence.
That’s Marcus and the Sweet Indulgence cafe at the back
Red Velvet cupcakes
Moist chocolate cake
Kel Li and Jen
Omg the moist chocolate cake is TO DIE FOR! It’s one of the best chocolate cakes i’ve tasted. Everyone agreed that the cake was so guut. It’s the kind of chocolate cake that doesn’t make you feel yuck after eating too much.
One bite of it and it was literally Jizz In My Pants. It deserves an anime reaction, but since i was in public i had to refrain from doing so. Must maintain style!
I don’t know what others may think about it, they might have tasted other bombastic cakes. But i for one don’t get to eat a lot cakes very often and my taste is not very fussy, so this cake was mmmm.. boomz.
Thinking about it while typing this makes me want a moist chocolate cake from Sweet Indulgence already! If there’s a time i’m feeling down, this cake is definitely the ultimate comfort food for me *ahem* I just gave you a big hint :p
We then had a wine tasting session. It was my first wine tasting session and i found out that this kinda thing is deeper than it seems.
I’m not a big fan of wine, therefore i don’t really know how to appreciate it. As a person that doesn’t know much about wine, i thought that the session was pretty long. But of course, i still listened.
We were taught many things from how to hold the wine glass, to analyzing the smell and taste of the wine. A lot of things, cannot even remember everything.
After the wine tasting session, it was time for us to move to the zebra couch area to get down to business – THE BAGS!
This session was hosted by Marcus and Rachel of LuxOnU. Other than being briefed about what does LuxOnU do, they also had volunteers to examine some of the bags that were presented. I was one of the volunteers, LOL! We didn’t get to keep the bags though :(
We also had a discussion on two Louis Vuitton bags that were presented to us. We were asked to tell whether the bags are genuine or not.
We didn’t get the zebra couch :(
All the bags were stuffed in that large LongChamp
Me holding a Coach; clueless
During this session, i realized that LuxOnU is more than just a boutique that sells handbags. It’s something deeper than that. Reason saying so is because based on the topics that we all discussed about during that session, it was easy to tell that LuxOnU is also a place for designer bags enthusiasts.
Rachel who is from Switzerland shared with us her stories about bags and the importance of taking care of our bags. Taking care of designer bags is very important cause we paid so much for it, and the task is not as easy as it seems.
Bags can transfer colours from one another, like for example a dark coloured bag placed beside a white leather bag can transfer its colour onto the white bag. The weather can also cause bags to lose their colour, and even grow mold!
Rachel also shared a little tip with us on how to clean white bags; Johnson’s white baby lotion! Works for white, cream and beige coloured leather bags! I was delighted when i heard the tip!
Of course other stains on the bag such as ink stains require different solutions. LuxOnU can help with that, all you gotta do is ask!
Towards the end of the session, we were all given goodie bags in courtesy of LuxOnU and Sweet Indulgence.

Awarding a white Gucci to Jen hahaha! It’s Rachel’s
Last picture for the day
Secret envelope from LuxOnU not included :p
Well i obviously stole some pictures here and there, haha!
ANYWAYS! I have good news for all of you!
Everyone can get a chance to experience all of this on this Saturday, 28th August LuxOnU is having their grand opening and everyone is invited! There will be a lot more bags compared to what you saw here and better offers by LuxOnU.
