Pedder Red on Wellington Street has sadly closed down. We’ll definitely miss this affordable yet stylish option from the streets of Central, but you can still find a limited selection of their styles in Lane Crawford, and also in the new Pedder Red store opening in Harbour City from May 28th.
Showtime will be hosting lingerie shows to showcase their new Spring/Summer collection at their store at 2/F Shama Place, 30 Hollywood Road, SoHo on June 9th Wednesday and June 10th Thursday. You must RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org to attend one of the viewings. Drinks and canapes will be served.
Recently friends have been showing up with super-cool (and affordable!) shoulder bags which they tell us are from local store Rabeanco. Their flagship store is in TST at 28 Harbour Road (2723 2516) and is worth checking out if you’re after a buttery-soft leather bag without the designer price tag.
If you’re looking for a gift for your uber-hip guy friend who turns his nose up at anything not totally au courant, you must check out Kapok in Wanchai at 5 St Francis Yard (2549 9254). Stocking the most innovative design-led clothes, accessories and cosmetics, this is a hipster wonderland.
Also in the Wanchai area, brand new beauty shop Naked is going to be my go-to destination for picking up gifts for friends and for treating myself! They stock hard-to-find in Hong Kong brands like Miller Harris, Nougat, Lollia and Dylan’s Candy Bar. Find Naked at Shop B, 6 St. Francis Street, Star Street Precinct, Wanchai (2520 5335).
