Fashion Destination: Hong Kong

Every major city has its one shop that every visiting disciple of cult fashion must visit.

In Los Angeles it's Maxfields.
In San Francisco it's The Archive.
In Paris it's L'Eclaireur.
In Milan it's Daad Dantone (you thought we were going to say 10 Corso Como- didn't you?!).
In New York it's Barneys Atelier.  

And, while most think of Hong Kong as a place for cheap silk shirts and a knock-off Rolex, it too has perhaps one of the best retail destinations of all - Joyce.  Named for Hong Kong's first lady of fashion, Mrs. Joyce Ma (馬郭志清), the company was established when Armani still had a head of dark hair.  Joyce was the first to bring top-end international designers to Hong Kong and is now the place for cutting edge and hard-to-find women's and men's fashion and accessories. With a fabulous beauty section that looks like a rococo pharmacy that is resplendent with mirrored-covered etageres and seashell-covered walls, the two-story flagship on Queen's Road on Hong Kong Island is a masterpiece of funky luxury.
