Whether it’s in the fashion, beauty, watches or jewellery world — or for restaurants and bars — pop-ups is officially a thing in Hong Kong, offering all of us the perfect solution to feed our never-ending appetite for the most unique offerings and experiences. For the sartorial crowd, in particular, we have good news for you: the coming weeks (and even months) are set to see an influx of unique fashion pop-ups. Curious to know what’s on offer? Scroll down to discover three of the latest Hong Kong fashion pop-ups that you shouldn’t miss out on in October.
Prada is currently hosting a pop-up store in Harbour City, where you can find a special selection of men’s travel goods and accessories including backpacks, pouches, wash bags, luggage tags, eyewear cases and leather patches. The space, meanwhile, features urban graphics inspired by the avant-garde black-and-white cinema of the 1930s — completed by a number of black Saffiano trunks as well as three life-size “trick robots” that are iconic to the brand.

Celebrating the launch of its Fall/Winter 2017 collection, Giorgio Armani is treating us with a made-to-order service for its key bag of the season: the Le Jeu bag.
Elegant and functional, the Le Jeu is characterised by a soft design, accompanied by a distinctive personality. It’s also highly versatile, and can be worn as a shoulder bag, a shopper, or — thanks to the additional leather rings on the handles — a wrist bag. With the made-to-order pop-up service, you will be able to customise your own bags by choosing amongst the various combinations of materials, colours and linings. In addition, you can also get your name engraved on the metal plate inside the bag for an extra personal touch.

German fashion brand MCM has just debuted its first ever made-to-order pop-up service in Hong Kong, inviting all of us to create our own Patricia bag. Inspired by the brand’s popular Patty bag in the 1970s, the Patricia features a structured satchel-inspired silhouette. With this pop-up service, customers will be able to customise every element of the bag from the type of leather and colour of the flap, to the front panel and the two side panels.
The metal push-lock, meanwhile, comes in gold or silver, and you can also choose to add a studded trim. Each bag also comes with a leather charm, on which you can add a maximum of three initials to make it uniquely yours. Each order takes approximately five to eight weeks to produce, and the finished product will be delivered along with a special MCM certificate.
