The way we shop for fashion is changing rapidly, and brands are having to go the extra mile to keep up with new trends. Ohemia is a new multi-brand bohemian fashion and lifestyle store on Hollywood Road that aims to modernise the boutique shopping experience and inspire customers with engaging studio workshops. Set over two floors, the 1,200 square-foot space offers an eclectic mix of womenswear, resort and active wear, jewellery, intimates, accessories, stationery and home décor on the ground floor. The upper floor is home to a private lounge and creative studio, which will host regular events such as social gatherings, DIY workshops, swap parties and wellness classes for the  community. Custom engraving, a jewel concierge service and a personal shopping experience are just a few of the features customers can expect in the new store.

Seabin Installation at AMC copy

We were so stoked to learn that Villa Finder and property management company, The Luxe Nomad, has partnered up with The Aberdeen Marina Club to launch a Seabin to catch floating debris, microplastics, oil, fuel and detergents on Hong Kong’s coastline. Within its first two weeks of operation, the seabin collected 78 kilos of waste! If the trend continues, the device could collect a whopping two tonnes from our waters in a year. The Luxe Nomad plans to install a number of Seabins across the region in partnership with other marinas.
