Bape Octopus Card & Holder (HK Exclusive)

leave a comment »

If you’ve never been to Hong Kong then there is a good chance that you have never even heard of an Octopus Card. But if you live in Hong Kong, you know that an Octopus Card is the greatest thing ever and can be used for the MTR, 7-11, ice cream trucks, McDonalds, and more.
Well Bape is now releasing a special Octopus Card and holder exclusively for the Hong Kong store.

Coming in a white multi-camo, the Bape Octopus Card and holder will be released at the Bathing Ape store in Hong Kong on May 31st.

I’m thinking about picking one of these up just on the chance that I’ll be moving to or visiting HK very soon.

MIchael Lau – CS Booth 16 "Gardener Still"

leave a comment »

Another season and another new release of toys from celebrated Hong Kong artist Michael Lau‘s Crazy Smiles.

On March 21st Michael Lau’s Crazy Smiles will release a whole new collection of toys that are still unknown. All we have as a preview are some promo fliers like the Metal Gear Solid inspired one above, so a possible Michael Lau x Solid Snake toy just might emerge.

If you are in Hong Kong, try to make it out to the Michael Gallery for this release, and you might just want to get there a little early. The reselling game in HK is something serious.

N. Hollywood s/s 2009 – New Order

leave a comment »

Progressive Japanese line N. Hollywood has released another themed season for spring/summer 2009 titled “New Order”


Before you judge, take a look at the inspiration of the line:
“A collection inspired by traditional Amish quilts, handing over from mother to daughter, from generation to generation. The designs reflect the disciplined lifestyle and the clothing of Amish as well as the respect for ladies quilters is incorporated in details. Quilts were spread over parts of the vast grass-covered runway. On this land, brightly-dressed children gradually grow up into adults covered in ”ordered” clothes.”






Conceptually I think this is just awesome. How they tied the boxy quilt theme into every piece of clothing so well and completely ran with it for the runway aspect as well is just great execution.

Check out the entire line in runway shots through the N. Hollywood site.
Also look for the collection at N. Hollywood stores in Japan and Hong Kong as well as IT in HK.

Always with that vintage feel, Silly Thing stays fresh this season.
These pieces are available now at Silly Thing’s Think Silly store in Hong Kong and also on Colette in limited quantities.

Know1edge x Fiberops Stadium Jacket

leave a comment »

Hong Kong’s Know1edge and Fiberops have teamed up for this “Mahjong ‘n Moonlight” stadium jacket.




Not normally a fan of stadiums but this jacket actually doesn’t look too bad, especially since it’s repping HK.
Mahjong n Moonlight is written across the wool back with the leather sleeves featuring patches for each brand as well as some with the Hong Kong flag. As a celebration of HK the “Mahjong ‘n Moonlight” jacket is available exclusively at 8FIVE2SHOP in Causeway Bay.

Adventures in Hong Kong: A Chinese Wedding

leave a comment »

Last Sunday we were lucky enough to be invited to a wedding in Hong Kong by one of our good friends Money. (yes, Money. I know, I wish it was my name too)

The bride and groom.

Sweet ice sculpture.


We were there for Money so Meezy and I thought this pic was appropriate.

The wedding was really nice, food was great, bar was open, night was great. Congrats to Money and Vincent and thanks once again for the invite.

thanks to Goch, Sade, Jeanie for the pics
