GOTHIC LOLITA SHOP SPIDER IN HONG KONG. SHOPPING IN MONGKOK: BEST CHEAP DISCOUNT CLOTHES, ANIME OTAKU MALLS.
Wanna know all about Gothic Lolita Punk shops in Hong Kong? With photos, access and more? I know you’ve been waiting for this post, and here it is.
Spider is one of my favorites Gothloli clothing brands. Two sweet sisters run the small Mongkok shop. They design all the fashion, with close attention to detailing, and produce in small runs.
The clothes tend to be on the Gothic Punk side, which suits me perfectly. I love the corset lacing, punk plaids, and frills.
Certain persons on the Internet complain that shorter skirts “aren’t proper Lolita.” I say — open your mind; the designs are wonderful and can be styled into a lovely Gothic Lolita look. Plus, Seba looks great in short skirts!
I bought these three items and the rose skirt, and wear them constantly (you’ve probably glimpsed them in my outfit posts). If you’re in Hong Kong and can only make it to one destination, I hope it’ll be Spider. Please say hi to owners Natalie and Queenie for me.
Spider is located at shop 130, King Wah Centre, 628 Nathan Road, Mongkok, Kowloon, Hong Kong (Map) Tel: (852) 2740 9366
Mongkok is our favorite Hong Kong district for shopping. (Take the subway there and explore the Nathan Road area). There are so many little malls that sell bright, alternative, trendy street style — at insanely low prices. Our favorite is:
Argyle Centre Mall, 688 Nathan Road in Hong Kong (map).
This “Gothic Lolita & Punk” store is located at Shop 67, 1F in Argyle Centre. However, Mongkok stalls move around constantly; they’re open one week and closed the next. Instead of worrying about finding specific stores, I recommend exploring at random. You’ll undoubtedly come across alternative fashions.
Mongkok’s clothes aren’t the highest quality (comparable to, say, Forever 21). However, the styles are way ahead of the curve, and prices are incredible: you’ll rarely pay more than $5-15 US for any clothing item.
Now you know why Hong Kong is shopping paradise! You can find items straight out of your favorite Japanese fashion magazines, but for a fraction of the price.
Such as Miffy the Rabbit plush goods, spooky artwork, and vintage snake-skin bags.
Or circle contacts, cyber fashion, patterned tights, cute stationery.
Hong Kong’s Goth scene is basically nonexistent (there are no club nights or gatherings). However, you can find Gothic/alternative items in the Mongkok mix — such as this jewelry, guarded by Edward Scissorhands.
Don’t you want it all? Amazingly, you can! The Rilakkuma bear top, for example, costs $8 US. Of course, it’s not an authentic product. We’re in China, after all.
