29 Gough St., Central
This quickly-growing string of shops are like mini-department stores for modern home goods, and as such, they’ve pretty much cornered the market on every big name in design, from Hay to Seletti to Tom Dixon to Artecnica. The spaces are moody and industrial (one of the outposts is actually housed in a string of shipping containers), which makes the experience all the more fun to browse. There are also outposts in Causeway Bay, Tsim Sha Tsui, and Stanley.
New World Tower, Central
Since 1971, Joyce has been sourcing the most interesting and forward-thinking labels in the world, and bringing them to Hong Kong. Balenciaga, Altuzarra, and Balmain mingle with Frame Denim, Mawi jewelry, and The Elder Statesmen cashmere. While the pricetags match the pieces, we’ve heard that there are incredible deals to be found at the Joyce Warehouse in Horizon Plaza in Aberdeen (there’s also a Lane Crawford outlet there). There's also a separate Joyce Beauty, as well as locations in Harbour City and Pacific Place.
1 Exchange Sq., Central
Hong Kong has to have more malls per capita than any other city in the world, which is probably one of the reasons they’re so good at them: Truly, you can’t walk a block without running into a superlative shopping center. When it comes to Landmark, think of every global label you’d ever want to shop under one roof, and you’ll find it here, including Isabel Marant, Carven, Balenciaga, Dries van Noten, Kenzo, Rick Owens, and Valentino.
11 Mee Lun St., Central
Several years ago, Sasha Dennig—part Austrian and part Chinese—decided to search the world for treasures, and sell her finds online. Now, she’s opened a bricks-and-mortar boutique, where you can literally shop the globe. Dennig has sourced and imported Otomi table runners from Mexico, elephant-bedecked earrings from India, and silver knotted bracelets from Greece.
One Lyndhurst Tower, No.1 Lyndhurst Terrace, Central
If you can’t make it to the 12th floor of Lyndhurst Tower, rest assured that this excellently curated jewelry shop does a brisk e-commerce business—and ships internationally. There are diamond pave rings from Hikaru Jewels and Alex Mika, along with tribal-inflected necklaces from A Peace Treaty and statement earrings by Lionette. There are also scarves, handbags, and a smattering of home goods.
On Pedder Men’s Store
Landmark Atrium, Central
On Pedder focuses on accessories, and nothing else—an unerringly specific devotion that pays off in spades: Here, you’ll find one of the best edits in Asia, if not the globe. Charlotte Olympia, Brian Atwood, and Marni mingle with Mary Katrantzou, Junya Watanabe, and Pierre Hardy. Though there are standalone boutiques across Asia, the On Pedder in Central actually lives as part of Joyce (this is the men's focused boutique). There's also a location in Tsim Sha Tsui.

9 Gough St., Central
This is one of those kids-focused shops that has huge appeal, even if you don’t have little ones back at home: Primarily because it’s more lifestyle boutique than toy store, and many of the design-centric picks would look right at home on someone’s coffee table, rather than in the playroom. (Meanwhile, you’ll want all the clothing in adult sizes.) Our picks: Fold and go farmyards, sundresses emblazoned with lips, and lunchboxes covered with a print of a vintage map. There's also a location in Wan Chai.
Prince's Building, 10 Chater Rd., Central
Laura Cheung’s grandfather hand-carved tables out of rosewood; her father built one of China’s largest ceramics factories; and so Cheung determined to continue the tradition. Her line of home goods and furniture draws on centuries of China’s more famous techniques, which she channels into gorgeously turned-out pieces, from lacquer boxes to Cloisonné tile trays. The flagship is in Wan Chai.
PMQ, 35 Aberdeen St., Central
While the focus at this much-loved Hong Kong staple is men, there’s plenty to appeal to both sexes, from the Rivieras slip-ons to the Astier de Villatte candles. There’s a bit that’s solely for women, too, including Sessun slip dresses, striped tops from Le Mont St Michel and enamel lockets by Trois Petit Points. There are also locations in Causeway Bay, Wan Chai, and Tsim Sha Tsiu.
