In a world where handbags aren’t relegated to mere accessories and instead are considered as quintessential pieces of the fashion mosaic, there aren’t options aplenty for connoisseurs. Breaking through the clutter of feeble attempts to bring the most sought-after handbags to the arms of those who hold the panache to adorn them is Kabinet Privé, an independent multi-brand luxury retailer.
Having served luxurious palettes for over a decade, the company specializes in premium labels such as Bulgari, Hermès, Chanel, Van Cleef & Arpels, Cartier, Patek Philippe and Rolex. It also serves as a one-stop shop for custom-designed bespoke pieces and personalized concierge services.
Kabinet Privé is the brainchild of Rozita Ramelan, whose entrepreneurial experience spans over two decades. Fondly known as Rosz, she has made her mark among the luxury-loving circles and high-end clientele, providing goods that satisfy their appetite. Through her endeavours, Kabinet Privé has found its regular clients among A-list celebrities, C-level execs and renowned financiers and investors, spread across Asia Pacific, the Middle East, Europe, and North America.
What sets Kabinet Privé apart from its contemporaries is the level of authenticity that it defines through each item in its inventory. Its rare collection reflects a century-old heritage and craftsmanship. A testimony to this is the fact that the company has one of the largest collections of special order horseshoe-stamped (HSS) and exotic Hermès Birkin, Kelly and Constance handbags in the world. Kabinet Privé also carries some of the most expensive handbags including Hermès Himalaya Birkin and Kelly bags and most notably, an exotic diamond-encrusted Hermès Constance bag.
Centred on the principle of luxury-as-investment, it is important for Kabinet Privé to ensure that they always represent only the finest handbags and other luxury pieces to their distinguished clients. A team of experts is responsible for the authentication of each article to ensure that clients can make their purchases worry-free.
The St. Regis Boutique by Kabinet Privé in Kuala Lumpur is located in one of Asia’s most premier central business districts. With its state-of-the-art interiors, the store offers private viewing events as well as personal concierge services to clients. Kabinet Privé private clients also get to experience an immersive VIP luxury retail therapy excursion, which is curated and guided by Rosz herself.
The Soirée by Kabinet Privé offers exclusive globe-trotting luxury lifestyle experiences via a series of events that showcase local cuisines, arts, and culture with the finest pieces from its collection. This is an exclusive invite-only experience.
Alternatively, luxury collectors may visit kabinetprivé.com to browse through the exclusive collection that includes rare handbags that could not be found anywhere else. Other than handbags, you can also find fine jewellery and luxury watches. Purchases can be made online with a 100% genuine product guarantee, safe and secure payment channels, and complete personal data and privacy protection.
To meet the growing demand of the luxury-as-investment market segment, the company has introduced Kabinet Privé X (KPX) featuring a special collection of preloved designer handbags from Hermès and Chanel. The collection includes a fine selection of one-of-a-kind runway and limited edition pieces, once carried by the most distinguished private collectors. These bags are now available through Kabinet Privé’s extensive global luxury network of collectors and partners.
The long-term goal of the company is to become a one-stop destination for all things luxury. Through its collaboration with collectors, high-profile clients and partners, from across the globe, teamed with the ensemble of luxury experts, Kabinet Privé has one of the most extensive catalogues of genuine luxury handbags.
If you’re interested in reaching out to them for consultation or to learn more about their expansive collections, then you can get in touch with their concierge teams based in Hong Kong, Singapore, and Kuala Lumpur.
KPX will be officially launched on 24 April 2019 at The St Regis Boutique by Kabinet Privé in Kuala Lumpur. To learn more about the collection and the company, visit kabinetprivé.com.
