Think you knew every shopping mecca in Hong Kong? Well, think again because we’ve got yet another hot new fashion destination headed your way – this time Leighton in Causeway Bay.
Located near the super hip I.T. Hysan One and Joyce in The Lee Gardens, we could put a bet on that Leighton is certain to become your next top fashion stop. With a host of unique and chic selected shops taking up residence, you’ll also be spoilt for choice! Amongst the brand new boutiques, cafés and lifestyle stores opening in Leighton, Butterboom’s top picks so far are An Odd Morning and Shine*. An Odd Morning, the first retail concept store, will be bringing some of the finest denim brands and cool street/casualwear from around the world to Hong Kong, including cult favourites Cheap Monday, 5Preview, Blood Is The New Black, April77, Nudie Jeans and Kuro. All are unique and quirky in their own right; Cheap Monday became famous after their first ‘Tight’ style of tight unwashed own-brand jeans sold out 800 pairs in a few weeks, Blood Is The New Black is renowned for its designer and artist collaborations, 5Preview’s prints play ironically with luxury designer brand logos (sure to be a hit with all you fashion-savvy shoppers!) and April77 won fans with its punk rock ethos. Meanwhile, Shine* has become one of Hong Kong and China’s leading destinations for the city’s most stylish and avant-garde fashionistas and celebrities, and will be cutting-edge brands like Markus Lupfer, TATA Baby, qlamb, TOGA PULLA and Ashish. Leighton are also doing a Facebook snapshot contest ideal for all fashion-lovers – simply take a photo of your style with the theme ‘Simplicity is not Simple’ and upload it to www.facebook.com/Leightoncwb or Instragram on your mobile with the hash-tag #LeightonCWB. You can vote for your favourite photos and the top-ranking one will receive a free trip for two to Paris to see a fashion show, with other prizes including $1000 worth of G-Star RAW coupons. So if you’re looking for unique, edgy and interesting new fashion that’s something a little bit different and more individual than every other HK mega-mall, Butterboom recommends you head to Leighton soon! And look out for more cool store openings at Leighton soon. Where?
