Over the past few years, Hong Kong has seen its fair share of online accessories stores popping up. From a legion of new designer jewellery lines to e-commerce sites that carry original accessories by up-and-coming designers, we are lucky to have such a wide range of choices all just a click away. Here’s Butterboom’s pick on the top online stores to shop for accessories.
The Traveller — Callixto
Callixto is the project of love created by Sasha Dennig. A lover of travel, Sasha has searched the globe (literally) to bring to Callixto an eclectic and colourful range of accessories and home decor. The founder realised that some of the most stunning pieces could be found in small shops in some of the most petite and remote villages around the world, and that there was a need to make known the amazing skills of those local artists and craftsmen. Callixto is Sasha Dennig’s attempt at bringing together these unknown and often unnamed artisans, jewellers, weavers and carvers from all over the world, into this one place for you to enjoy. Shipping is free and the average piece costs around the HK$2,000 mark. Callixto has also opened its first store in Hong Kong. Check out our recent Butterboom article for more information.
The French Connection — Shop des Createurs
Started by French man Cedric Delzenne — this online accessories store has gone from strength to strength and is a great supporter of local brands such as MISCHA (check out our Butterboom feature on MISCHA founder Michelle Lai and new kid on the block Carmen Chan). The site also introduces unknown brands (to Hong Kong) from across the globe such as Parka London and Vaska. There is no minimum order for free worldwide shipping. Keep an eye out for the pop events that are held occasionally as it is a great chance to see the products and try them on.
The Two Best Friends — The 9th Muse
High school friends, Charlotte and Jing decided to combine their love of jewellery and hence started The 9th Muse. Their carefully curated collection of beautiful pieces of jewellery and other accessories — from brands like Samantha Wills, Lionette NY, Karen Walker and Nicole Richie’s House of Harlow — are available for purchase at both their online and local store. The 9th Muse has collected a great range of vintage pieces which they managed to acquire while travelling around the world. Pop in to their many pop-up events hosted at the store where they introduce local fashion designer clothing that complements their accessories (previous events showed the Christing C. collection and the subsequent Christing C. x CDD collaboration). Shipping is free for HK orders but worldwide shipping will only be free after HK$1,199!
The Eco-Chic Trendsetters — A Boy Named Sue
Tania Reinert and Sam Wong have wowed us with their amazing selection of eco-friendly yet stylish clothes! So it is with no surprise when they expanded to provide an equally amazing selection of bags, jewellery and scarves. A Boy Named Sue stocks clothes and accessories from eco-friendly designers that adopt sustainable production practices. The site is beautifully presented and they offer free delivery for Hong Kong purchases.
The Family and Friends – Glamourpods
Glamourpods was started by a group of family members and friends. The idea was to find a great selection of jewellery which were beautiful, well-made but also affordable from local and international jewellery designers. Glamourpods hosts regular pop-up events to provide fun ways to shop accessories and their site offers style tips videos to demonstrate how to style and wear their jewellery. Shipping is free worldwide.
