K11 Musea finally opened its doors early September and I couldn’t wait to visit this one of a kind culture-retail destination in the heart of Victoria Dockside. The part I was the most excited about? The retail experience! Here is a list of 5 shops that did catch my eyes (and took some of my money) 
by alphabetical order

Atelier Cologne

Traveling to K11 by MTR, the signature Venetian blue of Atelier Cologne’s shops is the very first thing I spotted when existing the station and entering the mall. Loving the “Hong  Kong” mosaic tile art on the store front, echoed by the artistic citrus mosaic wall located inside the store.
I have been a huge fan of the brand for a few years now, loving their elegant family of fragrances dedicated to citruses and always find their stores to be beautiful and welcoming with nice pop of colors.

Fortnum & Mason

Well, Fortnum & Mason at K11 Musea isn’t exactly opened yet but I just can’t wait to the 312-year-old British brand to open this shop and restaurant! Already planning on stocking on some of the brand’s most famous products such as the timeless classic Royal Blend black tea, created in 1902 at the request of King Edward VII, or the brand’s biscuits and marmalades and indulge on some freshly baked in-store biscuit (a first for the brand).
Also, can’t wait to discover Fortnum’s 181, the set to be gorgeous dining room and bar on 1/F with beautiful views across the harbor. Fortnum’s most famous Afternoon Tea will be served each day accompanied by a live pianist
Exclusive to the K11 Musea shop: The Musea Blend, a mix of Keemun (Chinese black tea) and Yunnan Golden Buds (black tea) presented in a tea caddy designed by Chinese contemporary artist Zhang Enli.

My fav concept-store in town continues to expand and I have to say I am highly obsessed with their K11 Musea flagship designed by the architects at Collective. The shop houses different brands such as O.N.S, a menswear brand from NYC, Maison Kitsuné, Veja, Maison Labiche or Alexa Chung and just like in the recently opened Wan Chai’s  flagship, you’ll find a perfect mix of clothes, accessories, beauty products and candles (I can never have too many candles). You definitely wanna check Future Classics, Kapok’s own womenswear brand and a collaboration between Paris and Hong Kong.

How beautiful is this corner dedicated to the iconic French lifestyle brand? 
Shop 205, 2/F
MoMA Design Store

I was looking forward to the opening of this one-of-a-king gift shop, an extension of New York’s Museum of Modern Art, and the biggest MoMA in Asia (there are only two others MoMA Design Stores across Asia, both located in Japan). You’ll, of course, find some gifts and souvenirs inspired by famous artists ranging from Monet to Andy Warhol (couldn’t help but buying the “Where is Warhol” version of “Where is Waldo”) but the shop is also filled with, highly desirable, design objects.
Exclusive to the K11 Musea shop: design objects and gifts exclusively created for Hong Kong will be showcased in the store and artists who have made their marks on the local art scene will be featured. 
Shop 135, 1/F

If you cannot wait for the opening of Fortnum & Mason for a fix of all-things very British, you should definitely check-out the Penhaligon shop, a perfume house holding two long-standing Royal Warrants. I am fascinated by the Portraits collection, a family of characters each represented by a perfume and each with their own story to tell.
