In Hong Kong’s fast-gentrifying Sheung Wan neighborhood, 1960’s fashion is the inspiration at men’s-wear shop Moustache, where New York City transplants Ellis Kreuger and Alex Daye use high-tech Japanese fabrics for their bright knit sweaters and piped pajamas. A 10-minute walk away, Fiona Kotur Marin—another former New Yorker—showcases her snakeskin, shell, and silk brocade clutches at Kotur (by appointment only), which has earned a following by the likes of Renée Zellweger and Tory Burch. Fashion editors and stylists flock to Kanchan Couture (by appointment only), nearby in the Central district, for feminine frocks and separates made with bright Indian textiles. Head east to lively Wan Chai to find Kapok, which stocks a mix of inventive accessories (look for neon wristwatches and silk-screened totes). In fashionable Soho—South of Hollywood Road—Forest Bird displays a fashion-forward selection of clothes and handmade jewelry from small European and Japanese labels. Need a lift? Refuel with espresso and macarons at the boutique’s tiny café. Unique housewares can be found along Gough Street in burgeoning Noho. Green-minded Ecols carries colorful dinner platters made from wine bottles, while Homeless sells ceiling lights inspired by brass cooking pots as well as whimsical prints by local illustrator Carrie Chau.
