Hg2 : The Hedonist

A Hedonist’s guide to…

Beijing

Zulutu Grocery
Like a grocery store only selling t-shirts in place of bloody slabs of meat. Not the norm but fun and inspiring nevertheless.

The Thing
Local graphic artists get a chance to shine here with their designs emblazoned across too-cool-for-school tees.
The Shop

Ironically located in a black building The Red Box Studio is the place to come for China's thriving contemporary art scene.
The Place
Shop designer clothes before stopping off to refuel on its al fresco terrace.
The Peninsula Palace Beijing Shopping Arcade
Forget pounding the crowded pavements outside; stay in the comforting confines of your hotel while indulging in a little retail therapy.

Sephora
Rouge Baiser
And so to bed. Between fine thread-count sheets and beautifully embroidered cotton bedspreads made here of course.
Raw
Raw talent is what Raw is named after and with a slew of up-and-coming Chinese designers flogging their wares inside it certainly lives up to its name.

Lane Crawford
Think Harvey Nicks only East.
