Monocle – one of my favorite magazines – finally opened their permanent store and Asian news bureau last week in the cool Star Street district of Wan Chai. Stocking back issues of the magazines as well as a curated range of product collaborations including books, posters and CDs, its just another excuse to spend some time in one of my favorite neighbourhoods. If you’re in Hong Kong and want to check it out the address is Shop 1 Bo Fung Mansion, 1 – 4 St. Francis Yard, Wanchai. The shop is open from 11am to 7pm daily.
And while you’re at it, check out my friends store directly across the road – “Blouse-ripped”. A range of stylish creations for women by a local designer – its at 15 St Francis Yard. Shop til you drop!
