Hong Kong circular fashion store Retykle has opened a pop-up store in the exclusive shopping precinct of Causeway Bay.
Located on Yung Ping Road, the store provides a physical extension for the online platform which allows consumers to source children’s clothing that has outgrown their previous owners.
For two weeks, shoppers can enjoy a premium in-store experience, browsing what Retykle’s founder Sarah Garner describes as a curated edit from Retykle’s 2000+ designer brands including Jacadi, Bonpoint, Ralph Lauren, Seed, Moncler and more, exclusively available offline.
Each day between July 3 and 16 more than 500 new items will be added to shelves. Sellers who “join the cycle” and take their kids’ outgrown clothes to the store for resale will enjoy a 10-per-cent discount on same day purchases
Retykle is Asia’s largest resale platform for buying and selling designer kids, maternity, and babywear.
“Since our launch, we are proud to have recirculated more than 150,000 items of kids clothing and helped to donate over 30,000 items to local charities,” the company says. “By shopping secondhand, our customers have saved 185,000kg of carbon (equivalent to the same amount 8480 trees absorb in one year) and 313 million litres of water (equivalent to 1.252 billion glasses of water.
Last month, Retykle achieved carbon neutrality for offsetting and reducing all of its greenhouse gas emissions.
