Ahead, we’ve put together some of the best multi-label boutiques and concept stores to go shopping in Jakarta. You can thank us later, but we take no responsibility for that credit card bill!
Masari is a brilliant accessories shop known for bringing in some of the best independent labels all under one roof. We particularly love them for their selection of local labels like Aidan and Ice, Jasmine Elizabeth footwear, and Klove. While there’s nothing quite like entering a Masari store to admire their sparkly trinkets, their newly launched online shop offers more than just accessories.
