Launched in August, PO House offers everything from slow fashion to skincare products and F&B concepts aimed at environmentally conscious consumers and retailers, across digital and brick-and-mortar sites. Three main brands have been unveiled so far, including Mother Pearl offering handcrafted tea-based beverages (think bubble tea made with superfoods!) from a Lyndhurst Terrace store and a kitchen in Wong Chuk Hang. Meanwhile, Something Ode is a sustainable fashion operation, and Nourish features “clean” skincare and beauty brands.

Redress, the environmental NGO working to reduce waste in the fashion industry, has moved into new headquarters in Sham Shui Po. The space was formerly a textiles and fabrics shop, and has been revamped as a sustainable hub to support Redress’s projects, through exhibitions, workshops, events and pop-up shops, and to support and promote sustainable fashion and the Redress Design Award Alumni.

Gorgeous new prints, flattering yet comfortable minis and maxis, and everything in-between – that’s what you can expect from the new Summer 2020 collection by online boutique Black Coral xo, which is dropping in July. You’ll also find a limited-edition range of fun, fashion-forward face masks in signature prints, with a buy-one-donate-one initiative to help the community. Plus, there’s a capsule collection of new swimsuits for junk boat season! Free shipping within HK.
We’re loving new local jewellery brand, Lilie Sai Wan. The range is designed right here in Hong Kong by French expat Aurélie Samuel. The delicate pieces are perfect for everyday summer style, with fine feminine design and a pinch of sparkle. Made from silver and high-quality 18-carat gold plating, they make beautiful gifts.
Congratulations to Hong Kong’s own Grace Lant who has been announced as a Womenswear Finalist in the world’s largest sustainable fashion design competition, the Redress Design Awards. Grace’s zero-waste collection, Amalgamation, is created from a wide range of unwanted textiles sourced from both Italy and Hong Kong.
