KENZO IN HONG KONG - PART#1: LANDMARK
Hong Kong is a fascinating city, a unique East-meets-West melting pot and haven of fashion and fine food, famous for its jungle-meets-cutting-edge architecture and smog-choked iconic skyline. Hong Kong is also where it all started for Carol and Humberto. It was during a shopping trip here, while discovering the treasures the city yielded when they got inspired to open their own store in New York to share their finds.
On Tuesday night, we re-opened our KENZO store in the city’s most prestigious mall - The Landmark - and it certainly was a landmark event for us.
Celebrations kicked off at the store, where Carol and Humberto showed the label’s Hong Kong fans around the new space, fitted out with raw concrete, aluminum structures and marble print carpets.
The staples of our Fall/Winter collections – Cloud prints, Flying Tiger accessories, and the Eye collection (a big hit here!) – currently feature heavily in-store, and giant screens displayed looped sequences of exclusive images inspired by our key seasonal patterns for the Kenzo-clad fashionistas in attendance.
A gaggle of TV stations outside swooped on the celebrities as they arrived, including heartthrob Ken Hung, Wyman Wong, inseparable from his black Eye sweatshirt, Edmond Leung looking angelic in a sky-blue fur coat, and Aarif Rahman, who was mobbed by fans!
The KENZO Menswear store is open every day from 10.30 a.m. to 8.00 p.m. at The Landmark (Boutique B10, Landmark Atrium) 1 Exchange Square, Central, Hong Kong
