Who are the 20 Coolest Retailers in Asia?

The 20 Coolest Retailers in Asia report was brought to you by Inside Retail and our valued partner, Adyen.

Welcome to our annual report celebrating some of the most trendsetting retailers across the Asia-Pacific region: the 20 Coolest Retailers in Asia.

The report, now in its second year, celebrates some of the most daring, innovative and fresh retailers across a broad range of categories, as well as those focusing on more than just business-as-usual. Included are brands turning toys into a way of life, convenience stores mixing retro-futurism with cutting-edge technology, and new approaches to department store shopping. 

“To make our list, brands need to have that elusive X factor that captures the minds and hearts of customers,” said Inside Retail’s head of news Robert Stockdill.

“Some of the retailers we selected had eye-catching store designs and a novel approach to the retail category – some were easily Instagrammable, others offered customers an unusual experience… We also selected retailers from the entire region, from Vietnam and South Korea to India and Hong Kong.”
