Blanc de Chine information
This sumptuous store specialises in Chinese men’s jackets and silk dresses for women, both off-the-rack and made-to-measure. A gorgeous sequinned gown takes about four weeks to make, including one fitting. If you’re not in Hong Kong after a month, the shop will ship it to you.
The satin bed linens are also exquisite (as are the old ship’s cabinets in which they are displayed).
