“I have always loved the energy of this city. 12 years ago, the brand started in District 8 where we, a team of 4, sketched our very first design. This space in downtown Saigon really reminds me of our first factory and I wanted to bring its nostalgic elements to this location, it feels like a rebirth and also a new benchmark for District Eight. With this showroom, I want to reignite the neighborhood’s creative embers.“ ー said Darren Chew, Director at District Eight.

The space also includes a cafe on its first floor where visitors can enjoy barista-made beverages while indulging themselves in the contemporary setting harmonized with inspiring curated artworks.
