Sick of wearing the same old duds? If you’re traveling to Hong Kong, indulge in serious retail therapy and get your hands on some of the city’s own fashion brands.
Aly & Rachelle
It’s easy to assume that the shop owners’ names are Aly and Rachelle but in reality, they are actually the names of fictional identical twin sisters that represent the brand’s contrasting fashion styles. Aly is the older twin with an edgy personality, and whose sophisticated fashion sense revolves around abstract black-and-white prints and asymmetric cuts. Rachelle, in contrast, has a more feminine side, as can be seen in her floral and creamy pastel collections. The brainchild of creative director Christine Lam, the brand is known for its extensive collection of chic corporate attire and playful party wear.
California-born Christing has made a name for herself blogging about her fashion addiction, extensive travels, and trendy outfits. Her outfits—perfect for a day spent on the beach—have been adored by many. It just seemed natural that she would establish her own clothing line where here trademark flowy slip dresses and comfy shorts would be featured. And the bonus? Cute kids’ clothes are available, too.
