Her

Shopping Causeway Bay

A contemporary, female-driven retail space made up of three core principles: femininity, purity, and strength. Bringing fashion and coffee together under one roof, Her offers an out-of-this-world experience, at least conceptually. Designed by Clap studios, the store transports customers to another planet, one that resembles the likes of Mars with its dusty terracotta flooring. The retail part isn’t any less exciting either, with a range of interesting fashion pieces such as limited-edition sneakers, jackets, athleisure, cosmetics, and accessories. But the true highlight of the store is Her cafe, where the menu is packed with a range of coffees, cold drinks, and frappés topped with mountains of whipped cream. Aside from drinks, there’s also a selection of pastries and most importantly, indulgent Nutella-filled cookies. What more convincing do you need?
