- Whether you’re browsing through racks, admiring window displays, or trying things on and pondering a purchase while checking out your reflection, there’s something quite special about shopping. What’s more, there’s a therapeutic sense of achievement that shopping — and only shopping — can provide, which is why luxury department store Bloomingdale’s has been around since 1872, to give customers that much-needed retail therapy with fashion, accessories, beauty, home and tech items. With a growing market and international demand, the New York retailer has brought their 59thStreet flagship to you via your screen — anytime, anywhere.
Hongkongers, like the rest of the world, can now shop the latest collections, final sales and, most importantly, those brands we just can’t get our hands on living on this side of the world – without the travels involved. We tried out the new Bloomingdales.com to see for ourselves what’s in store.
Browsing countless products can be daunting — where do you start? Like most online retailers, Bloomingdales.com‘s items are organised by category and by brand. That’s great if you know what you’re looking for, but as all know, sometimes you don’t know what you want until you see it. Mirroring the in-store experience Bloomingdale’s is known for, an expert eye for curating a unique edit. We recommend going through their Editorial to learn about new trends, director picks, and interactive lookbooks, not to mention exclusive pieces that can’t be found anywhere else. Find brands you wouldn’t normally come across in Hong Kong, and Bloomingdale exclusives. The range includes over 1,900 brands, including the retailer’s own in-house labels like AQUA and The Men’s Store, international contemporary brands like Bec & Bridge, Keepsake and C/MEO Collective for your everyday wardrobe or splurge on our favourites such as Sachin and Babi, Yigal Azrouel and Zadig & Voltaire.
All prices can be shown in Hong Kong dollars (amongst 70 other currencies) so that you can focus on what to add into your cart rather than mentally converting currencies. And whether you’re shopping for yourself or for those far away, Bloomingdales.com ships to over 200 countries — making it a one-stop-shop to cater to your overseas gifting needs too. Not to mention, free shipping international to Hong Kong on purchases over US$150.
To ready yourself for the new season, update your wardrobe with bright pops of neon, animal print detail, dainty bow and ribbon flourishes, the modern take on tie-dyed textiles.
