Hong Kong’s ‘hot spot’ for fashion is selling out
WEST KOREA — A Hong Kong-based fashion retailer is selling thousands of designer clothes for up to $1,500 apiece, with the highest demand for “street” style clothing.
A source at the luxury retailer’s Hong Kong branch told The Associated Press that sales are so high, they’re even selling their best-selling items online.
“We have sold our very best-sellers online.
We don’t want to give them away.
We want them to come and buy them at the branch,” said the source.
The source said the store is still seeing a “large amount” of orders for street clothes, but that it’s sold out for a while.
Hong Kong is known for its designer clothing and luxury goods, but its streets have become increasingly popular as of late, with malls, hotels and restaurants popping up all over the city.
At one store in the city’s shopping district, a customer is seen putting on a jacket in a “street clothes” section of the shop.
In a separate location, a woman walks up to a shopkeeper and tells him to take a look at one of the store’s most popular items, a leather jacket.
This is not the first time the store has been sold out.
A few months ago, the shop told the media it would be selling out in an hour.
That hasn’t happened yet, the source said.
Earlier this month, another luxury retailer announced it would sell out of its stock of streetwear clothing in Hong Kong, and other retailers have since followed suit.
While it’s not unusual for stores to be sold out, the company that sells the clothing to the public is a different story, the person said.
It’s a big issue in Hong kong, the country’s biggest city, where there are a number of luxury brands, such as Louis Vuitton and Gucci.
Some shops have been closed for months, but others are still open, selling products in the style of fashion icons like Karl Lagerfeld and Valentino.
