A little birdy told me that online emporium Vivre is having a memorial day sale…no matter that we don’t celebrate memorial day on this side of the globe, who needs an excuse to shop?
One of the reasons I love G.O.D. so much is the variety of stock. You can find one-off vintage pieces (Shanghainese art deco if you’re lucky – or the usual communist kitsch) amongst their exclusive range, as well as a few brands that other Australians would be familiar with such as Maxwell & Williams.
The store in Causeway Bay, which is closest to me, is quite large – well, large for HK anyway – and has a garden on the eaves surrounding the upper level, so when you look out the windows you see something other than the usual concrete sprawl that is so often dominant. It stocks everything from clothing and accessories to furniture, tabletop, bedding, gifts, lighting, and homewares to stylish garden accessories and plants.
So if you’re heading to HK, I’d say definitely make a stop into G.O.D. if your schedule allows!
I arrived home to find the October edition of HK magazine ‘Home Journal’, and after flicking through almost the entire thing without seeing much of interest, I stumbled upon a feature at the back on the goddess, Kelly Wearstler. Amongst a whole heap of stuff that was old news…(I swear magazines here are about 4 months behind the rest of the world)…they showed some of the new homewares range she has designed, presumably for Bergdorf Goodman. How exciting! I’m not too suprised – it seems very inspired by her typical vintage look. I am looking forward to seeing the rest of it though, especially how they merchandise it in store.
