Three fashion pop-ups for Hong Kong
Three fashion pop-ups will be in full swing in Hong Kong next month.
Already open is a Prada pop-up store in Harbour City offering a special selection of men’s travel goods and accessories including backpacks, pouches, wash bags, luggage tags, eyewear cases and leather patches. The space features urban graphics inspired by the avant-garde black-and-white cinema of the 1930s as well as black Saffiano trunks and three life-size “trick robots” iconic to the brand.
The store runs until October 8.
From October 4 to 8, Giorgio Armani will be offering a made-to-order pop-up service for its key bag of the season, the Le Jeu bag, which can be worn as a shoulder bag, a shopper, or a wrist bag. With the pop-up service, bags can be customised with various combinations of materials, colours and linings. Customers can also have their name engraved on the metal plate inside the bag.
The service is available at Giorgio Armani Canton Road store in Harbour City from October 4 to 8, and at Giorgio Armani Central store in Chater House, Central, from October 10 to 13.
Another made-to-order pop-up service is being run by German fashion brand MCM, its first such venture. It is based around the Patricia bag, inspired by the brand’s Patty bag in the 1970s and featuring a structured satchel-inspired silhouette. With the pop-up service, customers will be able to customise every element of the bag from the type of leather and colour of the flap, to the front panel and the two side panels.
The metal push-lock is available in either gold or silver, and customers can opt to add a studded trim. Each bag also comes with a leather charm to which customers can add up to three initials. Each order takes about five to eight weeks to produce, and comes with a special MCM certificate.
At the MCM shop at IFC mall in Central, the service runs until January 5.
