Samantha Thavasa opens

April 25th, 2014


Samantha Thavasa, a popular women's leather goods brand from Japan, offered a press preview a day in advance of its grand opening at Ala Moana Center April 25.

In celebration of the opening, the first 100 customers in the store will receive a complimentary eco bag. The first 20 to spend more than $200 will receive a "Mini Mini Azel," a collectible accessory in the shape of a handbag.

Shoppers will find a vast selection of handbags, small accessories and luggage, in a range of shapes, styles and colors for every age and personality, from demure, ladylike purses and pastel accessories, to trendy crossbodys, and some in bright neon colors for look-at-me personalities.

Prices start at $72 for a key case, $266 for a handbag, and $271 for a traveler's small roller logo bag.

Company president Masakazu Terada was in town from Japan for the event.
