If there is one thing that makes women happy without reservation, it’s accessories. Throw in the word designer and you’ve made a friend for life.
For some Gold Coasters though, purchasing designer accessories isn’t possible (sigh). Until now (hooray).
Gymdo Collections opened at Capri on Via Roma recently and as of that moment, all your designer accessory owning dreams have come true.
Stocking authentic, preloved designer handbags, shoes and accessories (think scarves, sunglasses and watches) in all your favourite brands, Gymdo Collections is the super sophisticated baby of Masaya Wada who has always had a fascination with the finer things in life (same tbh).
Prestigious brands up for grabs include Louis Vuitton, Hermes, Chanel, Christian Louboutin and Yves Saint Laurent (be still our hearts) and they all go through a rigorous authentication process to ensure you’re receiving the cream of the crop.
Masaya’s dream began selling coveted designer watches online and after discovering a huge demand, in 2012 he brought in his daughter Tiffany (who was clearly made for this stuff) and together they expanded the collection.
The boutique will soon welcome their first installment of Birkin Bags, the ‘unicorn of bags’ and no longer the most unattainable thing on the planet for us mere mortals.
With a love of rare, antique cameras, luxury cars and motorcycles, there’s no doubt Masaya is a connoisseur of all things beautifully opulent.
And happily, now we Gold Coasters can jump on that fancy bandwagon, Birkins slung artfully over our arms.
Might need to invest (?) in a Chihuahua while we’re at it.
Happy shopping fashionistas.
