Vera Wang is opening her first flagship store in Hong Kong this month with the new 2012 Vera Wang bridal dresses on show. The gorgeous, elegant and haute-couture dresses are sure to make your special day one to remember forever. By appointment only.
The buzz: Renowned designer Vera Wang has designed wedding dresses and evening gowns for celebrities from Alicia Keys and Michelle Obama to, um, the Kardashians. Now, you can peruse her designs all in one place and maybe take one of her dresses home for yourself, as Vera Wang is opening her first flagship store in Hong Kong.
The goods: The store will stock both bridalwear and eveningwear. Wang’s fall/winter bridal collection is innovative, with lots of nudes, blacks and grays, and textures such as lace, wispy ruffles and deconstructed layers of material. Her fall/winter eveningwear collection is equally bold, with splashes of bright red and cerulean against a backdrop of grays and beiges.
The décor: Located in a chic, three-story townhouse in SoHo, the shops visage and interior are both sleek and charcoal gray with soft white lighting. Shelves and racks along the walls display Wang’s gowns, accessories and fragrances, and roomy leather armchairs and floor-length mirrors are conveniently placed around the shop.
