Shanghai Express


The leading Chinese luxury brand Shanghai Tang has just opened its first boutique in Kuwait at The Avenues Mall Phase II (next to Hackett). The small but upscale boutique offers a selection of Asian-inspired contemporary ready-to-wear for men, women, and kids in addition to funky accessories and home furnishings. This is a designer store so some items in store come with somewhat heavy price tags. Nevertheless, I find it to be a great place to find gifts for family and close friends.  Especially that some items are really unique and would last for a life time, so I wouldn’t mind to dish out some cash for my loved ones.  Here are some of my favorite things…

I loved these small coffee cups with koi fish design

A tea mug with built-in filter

Men's leather wallet with a Chinese dragon design. The inside is leather is colored in a beautiful bright orange shade
Above: a cotton top with embellished shoulders
Below: a soft cashmere cardigan with military-style pockets
This is one of my favorite pieces but it's from the Men's section. It's a reversible softly knitted top with a side orange embroidered motif. And if you reverse the top, you get a long sleeved cotton top with a dragon motif. I rolled up the sleeves to show you the contrast of orange on navy. I always love the two-in-one concept! So practical especially when traveling. They save up some space in the suitcase (for new purchases of course!)
