The whole collection is designed around a pastel colour scheme, including red dogwood, hazelnut and Niagara blue etc., making this season a colourful one with a touch of elegance. We want to create something that gives a sense of lightness like the butterflies, therefore we have introduced ruffles and chiffon in our collection, giving this summer a most welcomed breeze. The shining sliver crochet flowers echo the glistening light of waves, creating an ultimate femininity. Love and family is the core value of our brand, that’s why we make this collection available for parents and children as well. Mothers can wear the outfits alone or match them with their children, great for family’s outings/ shoot outs.
And if you are looking for perfect picnic spot, here are some suggestions.
- Shing Mun Reservoir
Shing Mun Reservoir is the largest water storage facility at the foot of Tai Mo Shan. Measuring 2 km in length, the reservoir is orbited by a winding lakeside path that stretches for many kilometres in the verdant valley. If you travel with kids, the most relaxing way to experience its natural beauty is to stroll along the east bank of the reservoir. The trail starts at the northern end of the main dam. Meandering along the embankment, it takes you deep into the beautiful Shing Mun woodlands, you will find many butterflies as well as wild monkeys on the way (keep your food out of sight!) The low wetlands, profuse trees and shrubs enclose the water, is a great place for picnic, a rare sight in a busy city like Hong Kong.
- Lions Nature Education Centre
The educational centre is situated at Tsiu Hang Special Area, Sai Kung, a nature wonderland for kids and adults. The 16 hectare Centre consists of Arboretum, Pet Adventure Field, Fruit Tree Orchard etc., children can learn all about nature in the most colourful way! You can go on a hike along the hiking trail as well, breathing in the magnificent landscape in San Kung. Many gazebos and tables are available in the area for picnic. Pets are welcomed too!
- Zero Carbon Zone
Picnic on the grass is impossible right in the middle of the city, well, think again! Zero Carbon Zone, just next to Megabox, is the oasis in that concrete jungle, it got its name because it is the first zero carbon architecture in the city. There is also the urban native woodland with 220 native trees of over 40 species there. If your kids are interested in green technology, three guided tour sessions are provided every day to the public for visits or as part of the education programme, giving your children a valuable lesson on environmental protection.
