i know women's selection there is for teenager who wears size 0 very very small

Does any one know anything about slashed/cut label products in Hong Kong. There are currently multiple stores selling contemporary brands such as Paul and Joe, Chloe, Marc by Marc Jacobs for really cheap. Ive seen stores on Granville Rd and Johnston Rd. Are these products authentic? And are theyre more of these stores elsewhere?

there's a lot of these stores in Causeway Bay. I've always been a bit wary of the authenticity as these are also EVERYWHERE in ShenZhen. They claim that it's slightly defected products but sometimes I won't recognise the style at all. Their favourite claim seems to be BCBG lately but none of their 'BCBG' clothes are really BCBG if you know what I mean. You can find those stores in Hang Lung Centre in Causeway Bay (most likely to be authentic but also pricier and also many are whole sellers) or little boutiques in Soho. La Foret and Island Beverly has select boutiques that also sell slashed labels

At those places the Chloe/Lanvin/Chanel/Fendi stuff is ALWAYS fake!

Hang Lung place is for wholesalers only I thought - I thought you couldn't go unless you had a business card for a retail store or something?

No there are select stores in Hang Lung that lets you purchase retail.

There's also been a crop of warehouse sales from major brands lately. Received eight of those invitations in the past week, up to 90% off Vivenne Westwood, Moschino, Jimmy Choo, Marc Jacobs, Juicy Couture, Bulgari etc. Have posted all the invites on the blog. If you're interested, feel free to print out the invites.

So I leave HK in a few days and I finally went to joyce warehouse and the lane crawford one today. didnt buy anything in either store but found one place on the floor below called Pompei and bought a Prada at half the price and no tax! thats one thing i like about hk is the no tax part. Didnt buy much on this whole trip except the purse and some jewlery at TSL. feels like a bust for my first time here lol.

You gotta keep in mind that it's quality and not quantity! although both is the ideal combination hehe

thank you so much for your help! i seems that these stores are getting away with posting labels such as bcbg, lanvin and marni on just about any item of apparel. your blog is also amazing..im back in hong kong again in august and so disapointed i missed the fendi sale a few months ago!

going to HK in two weeks. Are the summer sales still going on or have they ended, like here in the states??

I've been to HK once before. I noticed that there are alot of shops that sell second hand handbags. Are these authentic? some of the LV bags looked fake. which shops are reputable?

Also, where is a good place to buy a rolex or cartier (real please)?

Thanks everyone for your help!

hi sorry for the lateeee reply,
for those 2nd bag store, "Milan station" is the oldest one, and its reliable. but of coz always check the bag detail carefully to make sure.
for rolex and cartier...most of the decent jewelery stores sell it. but i think the price is fixed like the official cartier store... not sure

I love going to Argyle Center for cheap clothing, shoes, accessories! I also like the stores around Granville Road. HK's also where I get my H&M fix, as there is none here in the Philippines.

The city-wide sales are from June to August, I think. I'll be there in March, and I can't wait to go shopping. I'm so glad it's only under two hours by plane from where I live.

I didn't notice the sizing, I just thought what was available was absolutely horrid and cheap. Maybe I went there when there was a bad selection?
