Her in Causeway Bay mixes fashion and food
Hong Kong stylist Hilary Tsui has opened a cafe connected to her fashion boutique designed to “transport guests to a new planet”.
The store – Her in Causeway Bay – serves coffee, cookies and ice-blended coffees to browsing customers, marrying Tsui’s passion for fashion and gastronomy. It was designed by studio Clap, based in Valencia, Spain.
According to design news site Dezeen, the retail space features stacked terracotta display plinths and celestial aluminium partitions help create “an other-worldly atmosphere”.
“[Tsui’s] desire was to create a retail space dedicated to contemporary women that brings together her two passions in one place: fashion and gastronomy,” explained the studio’s design team.
“So we imagined Her as a sinuous landscape, with impressive mountains and pure materials – all together as a new space that’s yet to be discovered, like planet Mars.”
Clothing items are hung from wavy racks that are suspended from the ceiling. Jewellery is presented on pale circular tables supported by thin metal stems, intended to resemble “small white lotus leaves that grow from the mountains”.
Terracotta tiles are stacked to form a series of blocky plinths that the studio likens to “reddish mountains”, where accessories can be displayed or visitors can sit and rest.
