Harvey Nichols Hong Kong launches experimental retail space, Sandbox


Along with the unveiling of three new contemporary fashion brands, limited works of art and coveted collectibles will be on display and a very exclusive mahjong keepsake to take home.

Since reopening its Pacific Place space in 2019, Harvey Nichols Hong Kong has finally sailed beyond the mundane medium of a luxury fashion retailer and into uncharted waters as an experimental retail space. Introducing Sandbox, an area designed for free creativity; not only reserved for the refinement of clothing collections, but for the embracing of different cultural facets. Those who inspire new ways of life. The concept is reminiscent of the sand-filled pits of yesteryear in neighborhood playgrounds, or for a more conventional denotation, an isolated test environment with unlimited access to data. Its section without rules, without constraints, but where ideas and concepts are wild and free.

The edit is scheduled to run monthly, rather than singularly tied to the changing routine of the seasons. In its early days, three brands were added to the retailer’s portfolio: HUF, Rip N ‘Dip and Chinatown Market, where a comfortable selection of loungewear – suitable for home and outdoors – is colored in vivid photographic prints. and fascinating tie-dye swirls. You’ll also find a carefully curated selection of collectable memorabilia in the colourway ‘Harvey Nichols Exclusive’ – Chino Lam’s signature Jiro toy in a delicate pearly hue in one! – and curated works of art borrowed from notable contemporary artists and galleries, including 13A New Street Art Gallery, Kenz and The Real Project.

Perfectly synchronized with a new concept focused on celebrating new concepts, Harvey Nichols is teaming up with Japanese brand Kolor for an exclusive collaboration. But instead of parting with an airy wardrobe that most might expect, spot an exclusive 300-piece mahjong set dipped in a shiny cobalt blue in front of a distinctive Kolor-esque letterpress set. The case opens to reveal the perfectly uniform tiles printed with the initials “HN” on one side and the traditional lettering on the other.

Harvey nichols Sandbox is now open at Harvey Nichols, L2, Pacific Place, 88 Queensway, Admiralty, Hong Kong, +852 3968 2668
