Hong Kong Homegrown

There are two brands i have noticed whilst shopping in HK, both relatively small scale, but everyone has to start somewhere, right?

The first is in 'Trendy zone'' on Nathen road, Mong Kok. The Alliance now / Grover store is a mix of thier own range whilst reselling brands like Stussy. Its only a small space but thier collection was pretty impressive. There was also a copy of a magazine (not sure which) in the window displaying some of thier collection that had obviously been reviewed. They're obviously inspired by the likes of Stussy, Visvim & other Japanese big hitters but the attention to detail was impressive.

The second was Lucky 8 in Presidential mall, Causeway Bay. No reselling here & the quality of the collection looked really good. nice little shopfit also. The guy had tee's (of course), shorts, denim, caps, hoodies & backpacks. While not alot of the stuff was to my taste design wise, i still appreciate the quality & the effort the guy must have put towards it.

It's good to see these homegrown brands trying to compete in the Hong Kong streetwear scene, which is so  blatantly dominated by Japanese brands at present. Good luck to them, & if your in HK be sure to call by & support the local independant's.

Baby its cold outside

The goverment issued a warning this week to be careful of the cold weather throughout this month. So if your in town, or you are arriving shortly remember to bring your north face triple goose down vest, BBC / star trak mittens, your uniqlo heat tech long johns & a shotgun to shoot the polar bears.
Seriously though, bring a jacket, because the evenings get a tad breezy.

Hong Kong essentials

Hypebeast's essentials feature got me thinking what i need from day to day in HK, Heres a few...


Its bright almost every day at this time of year, making eyewear a must.

Iced lemon tea

'Dung ling tsar' in Cantonese. I cant get enough of it, a perfect thirst quencher when your its 30 degrees & your lost in Mong Kok.

Octopus card

A great way to avoid unwanted coins!

Suitable footwear

Walking around takes its toll on your feet, i found these to be sufficient so far (Note to reader: Vans chukka's are not a good option!)

So it seems HK got a restock of these all time classics.
To be honest, i've never really wanted a pair that bad, but seeing them in the flesh, & the attractive 800 HKD was too good to turn down.

Visvim Christo

So, after many weeks of going from 'i like em' to 'they are awful!' Ive decided i actually do like em & i can see why kids in HK go crazy for them, they are Visvim after all &, it is veeerryy hot still.

My only problem is, im not paying over 250 quid for a pair of fu*king sandals!!!
