Window Display: Model Kits @ Harvey Nichols Pacific Place, Admiralty, Hong Kong

Date:  August 2013

In the midst of the Hong Kong summer, straddling between the glaring sunlight and buckets of typhoon rainfalls,  where else can the Chica go to avoid melting make-ups and ruined shoes?  Why, to the shopping malls of course!  She is after all in The Kong aka shopping paradise.

Never mind that the end of summer is nigh.   Summer Sale is over and the Fall/Winter 2013 is just debuting.  In a word – nothing wearable to buy just yet, so let’s go window shopping!   

In this post I show you the photos I took from the Harvey Nichols windows at Pacific Place. The theme changes each season – pictures from earlier this year here.  This season’s theme is  based on toy model kits, and I am especially familiar with Tamiya Military Model Kits that my Bro was so fanatic about, spending hours in his boyhood days glueing pieces of plastics together.

Now, each window has a different theme and I had a fantastic time checking out the little accessories that made these windows very interesting – collection wise, the clothes did not attract me .  Nevertheless, let’s enjoy the creativity of visual merchandising team shall we?

To kick off… and of course,  the central window is that of the Knightsbridge Underground Station, where the Harvey Nichols London is.

My favourite among the windows is the boudoir.  I can just imagine myself in the pink floating chiffon number surrounded by bubbles and bottles of sweet smelling scents,  getting ready for a relaxing soak in in the huge marble bathtub with gold tapwares.  A perfect way to end a summer’s day, agree?

T-Rex Shopping Up A Storm at Pearl of the Orient!

While Daddy T-Rex is at work in France’s City of Light at River Seine, Mommy T-Rex and the girls are busy in the Kong working on their LV handbags collection!

It’s quite a hassle to buy luxury brands in Paris, you will be asked for your passport details since each customer is only allowed to purchase 2 handbags in the 6 months time-frame. Here in Hong Kong, there is NO limit on the number of bags purchased… waste no time, Girls, let’s shop up a storm!

20130906-150547.jpg

Look! More bags!

20130906-150542.jpg

More! More!

This goes to prove that shopping is a cultural experience in Hong Kong. It is not necessary to go all the way to Paris! We get ‘arts’ in the malls here!

*wink*

But if you still insist on seeing Daddy T-Rex in Paris, there is no stopping you, deets here
