If you love treasure hunting, we’re guessing you’re a fan of Homeless’ higgledy-piggledy display of fun home goods. And Time Out’s got some good news for you: Homeless has opened a sister store called Mr Blacksmith, which is earthier in style compared to its big sister. Expect the same sort of whimsical merchandise that defines Homeless, with museum toys, wonky shelves and designer chairs – but the split-floor boutique on QRE is also a tad more New York loft in style.

This fanatical children’s boutique’s summer sale has finally arrived, with a large selection of homeware and kids décor at 20 to 40 percent off. And, on another note, there’s a storytelling evening held regularly at the magical shop. Phone for details. No booking is needed – just bring your little ones along!

|An Odd Morning|
Since its opening at Leighton 77 in October last year, An Odd Morning has been bringing in hip and trendy casualwear from all over the world. Brands available in-store include Cheap Monday and Kuro. The select store is now giving out HK$500 coupons for purchases over HK$3,000.

|Alexandre de Paris|
The French hair accessories brand which makes every hairpin and Alice band by hand used to have a presence at the now-defunct Seibu department store – but they’ve come back bigger and stronger by opening their own boutique in Admiralty. Trés bien!
|Address: Shop 221, Level 2, Pacific Place, 88 Queensway, Admiralty|
|Violent & Lawless Jeans Exhibition|
This exhibition features eight artistic pieces which use pairs of jeans, as well as works by an octet of local emerging art units, including graffiti group Start From Zero and illustrators Graphic Airlines and Telephone Fung. The exhibits will eventually be sold in a charitable auction and all proceeds will go to the Children’s Thalassaemia Foundation to help children suffering from the rare blood disorder.

Some of us simply have no idea what a wallet is. We just shove notes and credit cards into any available pocket or crevice on our body because we hate lugging around a bulging purse (full of receipts, of course, not notes)! But salvation is here. Hong Kong stationer Daycraft has put out a new cowhide money wrap (HK$438) which can hold a few credit cards and some cash. It’s thin, neat and is half the size of an iPhone. Just lift the cover and it rolls open. And, to secure, just fasten the rubber band. Genius! Available from www.daycraft.hk and stationers citywide.
|Nike x Liberty|
Heritage meets style in the latest Nike Sportswear trainers collection. In collaboration with the iconic British department store and fabric maker Liberty, Nike’s signature running shoes – such as the classic Air Max 1, Cortez and the latest Free 5.0 – feature uppers made with Liberty’s classic floral prints. Each style is available in three colours. Super cool!

What comes to mind when you think of summer? The sun and the beach, probably. But Twist is offering something even more exciting – drumroll, please – the ‘mega seasonal summer sale’. Handbags from luxury labels like Céline, Chloé and Yves Saint Laurent are up to 70 percent off. Now that’s an unexpected twist!
