A Celebration of Street Wisdom – LANDMARK’s debut collaboration with PLACES + FACES to form pop cultural crossover

(22 August 2017, Hong Kong) The ultimate arbiter of style for the next generation of trendsetting men, LANDMARK is collaborating with HYPEBEAST to introduce world-renowned creative and cultural icon PLACES + FACES in the continued celebration of ‘A Year of Wisdom’. The cutting-edge pop-up experience curated by HYPEBEAST will be held at Shop B30, LANDMARK MEN, LANDMARK ATRIUM, where the modern gentleman will find all his lifestyle needs catered for. This will be the first ever venture in Hong Kong for PLACES + FACES, open to the public for a limited time from 26th August to 27th September 2017.

LANDMARK MEN harnesses Street Wisdom, combining the instinct for what is next with the power to champion new ideas. Taking on the street with an intuition for the up-and-coming, LANDMARK MEN is showcasing creative and inspiring experiences with this brand-new pop-up combining design, culture, street fashion and urban style. This collaboration is just one of many ways in which LANDMARK is redefining shopping experiences for the modern savvy gentlemen.

Kicking off this meeting of minds will be the official Hong Kong debut of PLACES + FACES pop-up experience. Launched in 2013, PLACES + FACES has amassed a huge cult following across social media among urban, trendsetting youths with its stark simplicity and raw emotion. Following worldwide success in the fashion hubs of London, Paris, New York and Tokyo, the photography exhibition will appear in Hong Kong for the very first time with images of artists and social influencers including A$AP Rocky, Kanye West and The Weeknd, who were all captured by this collective. A wide selection of highly sought-after merchandise curated by HBX including the HBX Exclusive Golden Ratio hoodie,  PLACES + FACES t-shirts and the much-coveted PLACES + FACES pouch bag will be available exclusively at LANDMARK MEN during this time, alongside a PLACES + FACES Hong Kong limited edition cap.

From 26th August to 27th September, LANDMARK Hong Kong mobile app users will have the chance to win the exclusive Hong Kong limited edition cap by PLACES + FACES[1].

The happenings will kick off in earnest on 24th August 2017 with a pre-opening launch party featuring a performance by DJ Darq E Freaker and a personal appearance by PLACES + FACES creators Ciesay and Soulz. The event will take place at Shop B30, LANDMARK MEN, LANDMARK ATRIUM. Registration available at www.landmark.hk.

The exclusive pop-up experience will sit alongside a plethora of luxury labels at LANDMARK MEN offering up-and-coming trends in fashion, grooming, gadgets and spirits. Youthful and casual outfits define the newest looks, like the colourful “Monkey” print bomber jacket from Paul Smith, crafted in Italy. Footwear becomes now more than ever a strong representation of the contemporary men. A casual elegance is introduced by Tassels with its LANDMARK MEN Exclusive Alden Natural CXL Unlined Chukka Boots, designed for comfort and durability. Featuring leather and fabric, Valentino’s Garavani Men Sneakers introduce a great option for those looking to refresh their style.

Accessories are a must in the wardrobe of the modern savvy gentlemen, like the Point de Vue sunglasses from the Orca collection by Frency & Mercury. The favourite eyewear of celebrities and fashionistas, this piece of japanese craftsmanship is made from pure titanium and is a bold yet delicate creation perfect to complement any outfit.

Backpacks are ideal for casual activity – like the sturdy backpacks at FENDI with their fresh street-smart designs. For those in need of extra pockets without sacrificing on style, Dior Homme introduces the LANDMARK MEN Exclusive Pouch; lightweight and very practical. Gentlemen who travel light will be pleased with the Louis Vuitton Pochette Jour GM. Evoking Louis Vuitton’s first travel trunks, the LV Pochette is the perfect fit for A4 documents, can be used inside a bigger bag, or can also be hand-carried for a modern and trendy look. Globetrotters can tour the world with the maximum comfort of TUMI V3 luggage. This supremely light yet durable luggage piece is designed to withstand all the adventures that travel can throw at it.

JOYCE Grooming introduces an inimitable shaving experience with the new Prestige razor collection by Bolin Webb. At The Whisky Library, drinking connoisseurs can enjoy a summery sip with the refreshing taste of the award-winning Douglas Laing XOP Garnheath 42 Years Old. Relax in style with the PRYMA 01 Headphones available at Universal Audio & Video Centre, a unique combination of jet-black leather headband and glossy finish for the coolest look.
