Summer Swimwear Search

With typhoon season in full swing, every sunny day is a blessing. Time to snatch up the last sunny days of summer, throw on your swimsuit, and join us at the pool/beach to swim off that pressing humidity. Aside from the usual clothing brand swimwear lines (H&M, Forever 21, etc.), swimsuit variety in Hong Kong can be difficult to find. We’ve found a few stores that carry your summer swim essentials no matter what type of shopper you are.
