A fashion phenomenon that debuts in the in-between seasons outside of the typical prêt-à-porter Spring/Summer and Autumn/Winter periods, resort wear lines are a collection built with the jet setter in mind. Like its name suggests, these are outfits to suit your vacation rituals and routines, from exploring quaint coastal towns to relaxing en plein air and looking good while doing it. For some hot summertime fits, check out these resort-ready brands in Hong Kong.
A notable leader of men’s resort wear in the local fashion scene, Mazu was created by Adam Raby out of an admiration for uniquely Hong Kong characteristics and as a resolution in response to the lack of trendy swimwear targeted towards men. Featuring breezy button ups, quality swimming trunks, and comfortable co-ords splashed with vibrant patterns, the brand expertly translates traditional references from Hong Kong’s maritime culture into super wearable garments.
