On the whole, Hong Kong is a city rather prone to following fashion trends, with many a stylish citizen sporting the latest It accessory – be it the couture Celine winged tote currently hanging from every chic arm, or the fabulous mass-market buy that was Zara’s ‘Court’ pump (seemingly ripped from shelves citywide within mere minutes).
By the same token, however, the ubiquity of these fashionable finds can staunchly take away from their appeal – and that’s what creative director Doris Qiu understood when she opened her lovely, thoroughly original Tikka boutique in Soho.
Focusing on under-the-radar designers and with stock arriving in limited quantities, Qiu opened Tikka as a tribute to unique, fashion-forward womenswear that’s hard to find elsewhere. Herself a frequent traveller, she sources pieces from all around the world, and as a result the inventory reads like a funky travel map: new in are laser-cut dresses from Parisian designer Raphaelle H’Limi, metallic gladiator sandals from Korea’s Suecomma Bonnie, lace tops from Australian label Shakuhachi, and plenty of local representation from brands like Daydream Nation as well as Qiu’s budding own line, The Letter Q.
With not only an enviable selection of clothing, shoes, accessories and jewellery, Tikka also ensures that you won’t be experiencing any ‘same dress shame’ at your next cocktail party!
