Pre-owned fashion retailer HULA opens its first store in Central

Madame Digests – April 2021
A treasure trove for fashion lovers with designer brands available for up to 95% off their retail price, HULA has long been one of my favourite online shopping destination in Hong Kong. Whenever I am in Wong Chuk Hang, I also make sure to stop by their warehouse, opens six days a week, housing over 5,000 luxury items. I sometimes wish I could live in that space! After hosting a series of pop-ups in Central over the past few years, which I religiously visited and where I scored pieces such as the cutest teeny yellow Chanel bag and my favourite pair of over the knee boots from Stuart Weitzman, Sarah, the founder, finally decided to open a permanent shop on Hollywood Road.
With weekly drops, rest assure that you will be greeted with new pieces with every visit. You also have the option to order from the website directly and try your items in store, with a 24h notice. And if you think shopping second hand means having to go through a stock of dirty old clothes then you will be happy to hear this new store aims at “expelling the conventional thinking about shopping second-hand, by showcasing our new and hardly worn products in the elevated manner they deserve”.

Le Fromage by Ma brings artisanal vegan “cheese” to K11 MUSEA

Madame Digests – April 2021
There are plenty vegan alternatives to meat available on the market but I was still to find a proper alternative to cheese. Don’t get me wrong, I love my artisanal cheese, I’m French I can’t help it. But I truly believe that each and every one of us should be able to enjoy the greatest things in life. Just because one can’t have dairies doesn’t mean one shouldn’t be able to treat its tastebuds. With over twenty choices of handcrafted vegan “cheeses” made in small batches from natural raw materials, Le Fromage by Ma takes you on a delicious dairy-free journey from creamy truffle flavoured Shamembert (HKD 160 for 120g or HKD 240 for 235 g) to Brie: Pink Peppercorn (HKD 150 for 190g or HKD 250 for 380g), Cheddar Smoked (HKD 150 for 160g or HKD 250 for 315g) or Gorgonzola inspired North Pole Star (HKD 150 for 180 g).
