If you are around Kuala Lumpur, be sure to drop by Acquire at Bangsar Village II, a lifestyle showroom that represents emerging brands of eye wear, wristwatch, travel luggage, home ware products and furniture at a range of "affordable luxury".
Acquire opened in July 2010 and originally it stocked mainly bags, luggage, watches, gadgets, eye wear and stationery. In October 2012, more space was obtained and the range extended to include home wares, occasional furnitures and colourful textiles made-ups like cushions.
Acquire is owned by Azmi Merican and Chooi Hoong Foong, both used to manage a well-known interior and furnishing business in KL. After being absent for 10 years from the retail scene, they felt that there was a niche in the KL shopping scene for a shop like Acquire, hence the comeback.
Acquire has a broad inventory of watches, bags, audio products, tableware, cushions and many others. Azmi Merican said that the store stocked items for male customers at first but he and Chooi Hoong Foong found a lot of female buyers showing interest in the products. That was when they had broaden the range to accommodate both male and female preferences in products and brands that are setting the trends.
Among the brands available at Acquire are "MH Way", "Nava Design", "Danish Design Watches", "Nannini Eyewear" and "Serax". All of these brands are made exclusive only at Acquire since they are not yet available in other stores around Malaysia. The owner strive to seek innovative products that reflect new lifestyle trends and they add new collection or edit existing ranges in the showroom every year.
