Hong Kong

I was fortunate enough to have recently spent some time in Hong Kong. It is an amazing city and for those that have not been, put it on the list. Whilst there i managed to track down a little store about 20 minutes from central that specializes in bone and horn buttons. We have decided to make them a permanent feature of our range.

I have to say that there is an overload of products and things to look at. Stand-alone stores for every brand imaginable - Lanvin, Dior Homme, and a Bally on every second block.

Some highlights: Heineken in 7-11's
Lane Crawford. (Makes David Jones look like Big W)
Zaha Hadid's travelling art container.(the exhibition is a bit dubious)
Scotch at Felix. Phillipe Starck bar at The Peninsula Hotel Kowloon.

That's two alcohol related highlights but it was thirsty work!

The view from my room. 53rd floor "the chopsticks" Hong Kong Island
