Mahka Store Opening

with No Comments


I know, I’m a little late but I wanted to say congratulations to Maguelone Calmels the creative genius behind her new brand Mahka.
It was the opening of her store in the beginning of December and upon arrival, what first caught my eye was the striking black steel frames and classic Hong Kong windows. Mag kept most of the original exterior of the shop and up-cycled some of the elements from the old metal door, which her brand “Mahka” was graffitied on and then moulded to fit the service/till area.
The colour palette Mag chose for her unisex collection, was eye candy, a beautiful range colours that faded from blush, khaki green, grey to brown and some pieced featured a combination of prints and embroidery on some of her designs, my favourites being an oversized sweater dress with the sleeve cuffs embroidered and a long dress (which i have to get) with paisley-like embroidery along the waist band.

Not only is Mahka a clothing store, it also has some fabulous artwork, a chair from the 60s that I am so jealous of, Dj set up to liven their upcoming events, or just for a regular Tuesday, Mahka has made it apparent that they are no regular fashion store, but a lifestyle and entertainment hub to watch out for. Check out Hong Kong Community Radio’s Video that featured a live set at Mahka

Mahka is located at 4, Wa Lane, Sheung Wan, just off Hollywood Road (Mahka has a great outdoor area and that they share with an art gallery and famed restaurant La Cantoche)

Congratulations my love, I wish you all the best!!


Love, P x


The Real Deal SZ- Thomas Schumacher

The Real Deal is known for their pop up raves around China namely Shenzhen which include underground tunnels and under massive highways so every time you embark on a Real Deal rave adventure, be prepared to be unprepared
Its been a surprise to see a huge mix of nationalities at these parties, i always expect it to be mainly Chinese but they are usually the minority (from the raves i’ve been to) You sometimes forget how big Mainland China is and how many expats are living and working there with some fans that make the trip over the boarder from Hong Kong to experience some quality music with a new and exciting location nearly every event.
This month they had special guest Thomas Schumacher along with my hubby and The Real Deal residents.
Hong Kong and Guangdong province was literally just recovering from a typhoon so we were lucky the event was still on but, it was probably the reason why it wasn’t as packed as we initially though it was going to be though, it still drew 200+ people to the party.
The rave was held about 20 minutes via taxi from Luo Hu station at a large rural artist village complex at a warehouse full of quirky face mask fixtures and mirrors with droopy faces drawn on the surface.
Naturally we had Xinjiang food before we got to the venue which went down well with my lovely new buddy from Berlin, Thomas.
Needless to say it was a blast.
