If funky, edgy designer goodies give you a thrill, and price is not an option, get ready for a real treat. Places like ZEN, Playground, Manga, Flow Now and Q Concept have all the latest design trends in the world covered. This is where all the coolest, hippest and stylish in the know head to for that sought-after look or lifestyle.
ZEN at CentralWorld is a funkadelic, six-level lifestyle trend megastore. Claiming around 50,000 square meters of prime space, and more to come, it is targeted at the trendy young at heart, affluent Thais, expatriates and tourists who appreciate good design. Visual merchandising here is enfolded in an eye-catching and theatrical setting so as to completely reel the shopper into a thrilling shopping experience.
Priding itself on its industrial edge, mod furnishings and the pop-graphic cool backdrop of wall-papered panels, ZEN probes into new realms of creativity. Each stage appeals to a different audience, or shall we say, constellation of about-to-be-born stars - all the while flowing quite seamlessly from space to space.
Squeaky Clean Fun
Level one, entitled the 'Beauty of Luxury', hosts cutesy cosmetic brand Anna Sui alongside the clinical minimalism of Dermalogica and fragrance cum cosmetics for boys, Yves Saint Laurent L'Homme. Also found here are sensational watch boutiques, must-have bags, accessories and designer eyewear. The second level, simply called 'Women's Elegance', presents contemporary fashion, evening and party wear of the most adventurous sort.

Level three is the 'Casual Women's Zone' sporting ultra-chic fitness and aerobic wear and gear, nonchalantly stylish smart-casual fashion, underwear and hair and nail bars. And a visit to the third floor ZEN 'Women's Vanity Restroom' is an enlightening experience in its own right.
Level Four is the metrosexual man's destination, featuring breezy smart, business and casual-wear, as well as novel shoes, jewellery, accessories and high-end timepieces.

And among health and fitness equipment, digital gadgets and the hippest ever travel gear, you can have an electronic massage while waiting for your poodle's grooming session at 'ZEN Doggie Spa and Hotel', or your cousin's chihuahua's appointment at the 'Dog's Fashion' domain. After all, everyone needs a little TLC. Opening soon is the seventh floor, featuring soon-to-be the place to be seen - 'FoodLoft @ Zen'.
