On 12 December, Shopee saw over 12 million orders across the region, surpassing all past records including the recent Shopee 11.11 Big Sale.

Supported by more than 450,000 brands and merchants, Shopee recorded 48 million visits as users shopped 60 million deals across all categories. Shopee’s in-app games were also highly popular like the Shopee Shake which was played 46 million times throughout the campaign.

In Malaysia, Health and Beauty, Home and Living, and Baby and Toys were the top three most popular categories. Leading brands, including Watsons, Nestle, Pet Pet, Realme and Petronas emerged as favourites amongst users.

Additionally, all tickets for Shopee’s Regional Brand Ambassador, BLACKPINK’s 2019 World Tour that went on sale were sold out in less than an hour, with 100 tickets snapped up within the first 30 seconds.

Malaysians grew up with Milo so it came as no surprise when the Nestle Milo Energy Cube became the top favourite, with raving reviews about its unique bite-size goodness. Additionally, people are getting more health conscious as they continue to maintain a balanced lifestyle. The Russell Taylors Air Fryer was a sought-after product to add to their kitchen essentials as a healthy alternative to fry food while another crowd-pleaser was the Xiaomi Mi Band 3 for wearers to track their fitness progress by recording their daily activities such as walking, sleep, heart rate and calories burnt. The old adage “an Apple a day keeps the doctor away” does ring true when iPhones became another attraction during the Shopee 12.12. Birthday Sale.

Ian Ho, Regional Managing Director, Shopee, said,

Shopee 12.12 Birthday Sale marks another significant milestone as we celebrate a year of exponential growth. This follows the success of Shopee 11.11 Big Sale in November and Shopee 9.9 Super Shopping Day in September. We are pleased to see the never ending support from our Shopee users, and to record around 16 million downloads in Malaysia is a huge achievement as we continue to be a leader in the e-commerce industry. A big thank you to our loyal users, sellers and partners for their continued support. It has been an exciting and fulfilling quarter for us as we surpass past records and set new benchmarks to reach next year. We look forward to having everyone join us in attaining even greater heights in 2019.”

JOTUN Officially Launched Global Colour Trends 2019

Jotun’s Latest Colour Collection represent three themes: CALM, REFINED and RAW.

Colours from the RAW theme (1)

These themes are designed to inspire homeowners to choose colours and combinations that reflect and embrace their own personal identity.

In celebration of individual personalities, the launch event held at The Space, Menara KEN TTDI where each of the IDENTITY themes were brought to life through interactive experiences that resembled each theme from refined floral bouquet making sessions to a raw and healthy food station allowing them to discover and express their identity.

Similarly, Jotun recognised that in a fast-moving world full of distractions, home is one of the few places we can authentically express who we are. In a busy life, home should be an anchor and a comfort: the place where we can relax into our true selves and tell our own stories. Home is an expression of identity.

These observations are the founding ideas behind the Jotun Colour Card 2019. Compiled over a year by the Jotun colour specialists in Sandefjord, Norway, and incorporating on the insights of a global network of colour-trend researchers, this year’s card – titled Identity – explores the colours that characterise and reflect modern urban lifestyles around the world.

The card presents a palette of 28 colours, many of them new, created by the globally renowned paint company, demonstrating how homeowners and interior designers can create inspiring spaces that authentically express the values, interests and personality of their occupants.

The age of using colour and design to reflect aspiration or ‘put on a show’ for guests is over; today’s colour palettes are built on honesty, integrity and truth – the home of 2019 says simply: ‘This is me’.

Lisbeth Larsen - RAW Collection

Jotun Global Colour Manager Lisbeth Larsen, together with a team of colour consultants from across South-East Asia, the Middle East, Turkey and Scandinavia, have translated their insights into a palette of 28 shades to be added to the extensive Jotun paint range.

“We believe that home is the living story of who we are, told in the objects and colours we fill it with. Our research identified three identities that resonate with homeowners of every global city: A calm palette of slowness and simplicity that you can peacefully return to as life grows faster and busier; a refined palette inspired by vintage treasures and new design pieces that you love to store and showcase and a raw palette that reconnects you to the warm colours of soil and sand, reminiscent of a relaxed, rural atmosphere. We’ve designed our colour card as a tool to help discover their true identity through the beauty of colours.

To illustrate how different colour combinations can be employed to communicate different identities, Jotun has identified three distinct, globally resonant themes, each describing an individual mindset and way of living – the story of an individual, told in colour.

JOTUN GLOBAL COLOUR TRENDS 2019

CALM

Soft, light neutrals and warm, subtle contrasts

The calm identity prizes meaning above quantity in the things they surround themselves with, revelling in the almost-Nordic simplicity of their space. Their home is a refuge of clean, easy living and a place of peace, a Zen sanctuary given character through a handful of choice artworks or objects that carry deep personal significance. Nothing is superfluous; there is no room for clutter. Everything has a place and a reason to be in it.

REFINED

Sense-stimulating greens and yellows, given depth with different textures

The refined identity is that of the modern-day curator: discerning, considered and interested in intriguing juxtapositions. Their home is dotted with a seemingly eclectic collection of art and artefacts, vintage pieces and contemporary design, all carefully positioned in order to acquire new meanings in their relationship with one another. This home is a personal gallery – a dialogue between colour and object whose whole is greater than the sum of its parts.

Refined Colours

RAW

Deep earthy reds, sensuous peaches, greens and darker neutrals

The raw identity is rooted in the earth. Their home is that of a maker and an artisan – an individual that relishes the honesty of working with their hands, who values provenance above polish. They are chefs and hunters, bakers and carpenters. They find beauty in craft and utility – reflected in rustic homes and grounded spaces full of natural, wood-and-stone textures and the colours of soil and sand.

These three identities are in no way prescriptive. Users of the colour card are free to mix and match the new colours as they wish. After all, the rooms of a home can each reflect different facets of an identity – someone may be a hunter in the kitchen or a curator in the living room, but seek a moment of Zen in the bedroom – or be a combination of all three types. The colour card gives people the freedom and flexibility to reflect themselves as they are. It includes Jotun’s practical colour-matching tool, allowing users to easily identify complementary shades within a single colour family, or create harmonious colour variations in the same space.

The card is brought to life with inspiring photography by Line Thit Klein, featuring the colours at play in three interior settings, styled by Oslo creative studio Kråkvik & D’Orazio, long-standing Jotun collaborators.

LAUNCHING IDENTITY

Identity – Colour Design by Jotun will launch in Stockholm on 21 August 2018, and will be released across Europe, the Middle East, South East Asia and China over the following four months.
