One of the things we love most about shopping in Hong Kong is finding stores we never would have found on our own. Many stores are tucked in a building hidden away like a well-kept secret. Well sometimes, secrets are meant to be told so we have to tell you about ROSARINI. ROSARINI is a store that was created out of one women’s frustration in finding clothes that fit Western women here in Hong Kong. Karen Scheinecker, the designer and founder of ROSARINI, decided to take this problem into her own hands and created a line that caters to women who have a shape and figure that can’t easily glide into a pair of size 0 pants. ROSARINI’s sizes range from size 6-22 (UK size) which is wonderful news for those who are sick of pretty clothes only being available in very tiny sizes.
One of ROSARINI’s main selling points (besides their wealth of sizes) is the fabric the clothes are made of. Matt Jersey is the signature fabric and each item is crease free and breathable – which is great for Hong Kong’s humid climate and for traveling to fun tropical destinations! The best thing about Matt Jersey is that it does not cling, pill, fade or shrink. It also dries instantly after washing which is a miracle for the Sassy girl on the go.
We recently stopped in to see what ROSARINI was all about and we had a blast shopping in the store. We tried on so many things and were amazed at how great they fit. Our wish list has already been made – we loved the Waterfall Cardigan, Sleeveless Ruffle Top, Edged Cardigan and the Draped Front Cap Sleeve Top. What we really like most about the simple style of the clothes is that you can add your own twist, such as belts or jewelry, to truly make it your own!
Stop by ROSARINI to see for yourself how great their selection is. No worries if they ask you who told you the secret – you can tell them Sassy sent you!
