How are you guys back in the UK? If you love shopping and food then at some point in your life you need to come to Hong Kong. If you are a shopaholic this would be your version of heaven! You can shop for anything from designer labels to local boutiques down to lots and lots of Korean and Japanese fashion.
Yesterday as I was shopping around in an area near Sham Shui Po (an absolute must go if you love your tech stuff) I came across a shopping centre. There are lots of shopping centres in Hong Kong that are not obvious at all and high up. The shopping centre I went to was full of boys and girls clothing boutiques then all of a sudden I came across a glasses boutique.
I of course went straight in and had a right ole nose and got chatting to the shop owner. The brand is DorDor Eyewear which are all made out of acetate in retro styles. All the acetate is sourced from either Japan or Italy complete with 7 barrel hinges (the best of hinges- FYI)
The brand is founded by an eyewear lover who wanted to design something that is high quality at an affordable price. What I love about the brand is only 50 pieces are produce for each design so once it’s sold out that’s it. Then every 2-3 months they will bring out 3-4 new designs so the collection is always fresh, current and up to date with trends.
The price is around $1250HKD so that is around £100. The brand has won many design awards over in Asia and has been a huge hit with Hong Kong celebs. Maybe they will make an appearance soon in the UK!
