    5 Items We Covet From Epik-Shop [Store Stalk]

    From Lego cufflinks to handmade zodiac rings, this new online store has started its journey to curate the best of Southeast Asian fashion and home items for its shoppers.

    Epik-Shop is a gem of a marketplace that quietly entered our radars at the end of 2015 and has since curated an impressive array of South East Asian labels for men and women clothing, accessories, and home items.

    Our overall impression of Epik-Shop is positive. The website is easy to use, visually appealing and carries items for both men and women.

    The prices in Epik-Shop.com seem on the high side, with women’s clothing starting at RM38 for a t-shirt to RM350 for an overcoat. However, we like that the offerings are different from other online stores available, with Common Ground from Casey Gan and handmade Obi clutches from Moniko.

    If you are looking to do some online shopping too, here are our editor’s picks from the store:
