Hg2 : The Hedonist

A Hedonist’s guide to…

Beijing

McQ Alexander McQueen
Found in the trendy Sanlitun Village North shopping centre, this is McQ Alexander McQueen, the city's first outpost of legendary British fashion brand
Tung Lok Tang
Young hip and trendy? Call off the search you've found your home.
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.
Ming House
Far from selling 'minging' clothes Ming House sells cutting-edge fashions to those who are willing to flex the plastic.
Dong Liang Studio
A shine to cutting-edge (and well-cut) Chinese designers this studio has style all wrapped up.
NLGX
Label-lovers will fall head over designer heels in love with the clothing on offer here.

Shengxifu Hat Store
If you're a little breezy around the top then invest in a suitably stylish hat here.
Artopal
Arty farty types flock to this store in their design-y droves.
Vivienne Tam
Clothes don't come any chicer than they do here - unless of course you're talking about fashion's other Vivienne.
Lu 12.28
We love a designer with a full stop in its name which is why we can't get enough of Beijing-based clothing designer Lu 12.28. End of.
Navel
Cover you er navel with offbeat t-shirts sold here.
Hana
Specialising in linen and silk garments from Korea you can always find something suitably stylish to wear at Hana.
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.
Shin Kong Place
Those with a penchant for designer stitching at the back of their necks flock here for Gucci and other gorgeous garments.
The Thing
Local graphic artists get a chance to shine here with their designs emblazoned across too-cool-for-school tees.
Gobi Gear
The Gobi Desert may not be the most obvious choice of inspiration for a shop but this store makes it work in its favour.
Aria Boutique
Foreign designers are sold alongside the owner's own take on Chinese style. The result? Chic clothes indeed.
The Red Box Studio
Ironically located in a black building The Red Box Studio is the place to come for China's thriving contemporary art scene.
Croquis
Minimal lines and sleek aesthetics - and that's just the store. More of the same from the clothing.
Fei Space
Chinese fashion doesn't get much hipper than that on offer from Zhang Da at Fei Space.

Take to Beijing's streets in suitably stylish streetwear direct from the er Source.
The Shop
While it's not the most imaginatively-named store in SoBe, The Shop sells incredibly cool designer clothes for both men and women.
