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.
Vivienne Tam
Clothes don't come any chicer than they do here - unless of course you're talking about fashion's other Vivienne.
Ucca Store
If you've always dreamed of getting your grubby little mitts on a signed print from a Chinese artist then you've come to the right place. If not then it's still an interesting place to poke about.
Tung Lok Tang
Young hip and trendy? Call off the search you've found your home.

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

Tang Hu Lu
Ever wondered what cotton from China's countryside feels like? Wonder no more as there's plenty of the stuff on offer here.
Surface
Two floors are better than one as they say (or is that heads?) and that's no more true than at Surface a two-floored emporium dedicated to unisex fashions.

Shanghai Xu
Using a needle and a thread is something of an art form - an art form that these guys have got down to a tee.
Sattva
You don't have to travel further afield for authetnic pieces from Tibet and Qinghai; you have to travel here to Sattva.

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.
Plastered

O’
It may be raining and it may be pouding but that doesn't mean your fashion credentials have to be snoring. Boot up in style at O' with an on-purpose apostrophe.
NLGX
Label-lovers will fall head over designer heels in love with the clothing on offer here.
Navel
Cover you er navel with offbeat t-shirts sold here.
Ming House
Far from selling 'minging' clothes Ming House sells cutting-edge fashions to those who are willing to flex the plastic.
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.
Karen Smith
