Where? SimpleKonseptStore is on Jalan Lesmana, Bali's boutique-filled strip, near Seminyak Beach and the Ku De Ta restaurant.
Who? Ex-Prada designer Paola Zancanaro, founder of women's wear line Coquette and fellow Italian Mario Gierotto, designer of menswear line Nakal, launched the boutique in August.
Fashion finds: jewellery from Venetian Anna Michielan sits alongside offerings from Vivienne Westwood. Other goodies include Gwag leather bags and board shorts by Deus Ex Machina. The Coquette line offers Miu Miu-inspired tie-dye dresses.
The crowd: expats or European tourists looking for after-beach attire.
The vibe: the stark white storefront stands out from the touristy pack. Inside, Balinese fashionistas work the floor with practised European nonchalance.
Extras: look for lifestyle items from Alessi, Louis Ghost chairs from Kartell and handmade knives from Miki City, Japan.
