I love your blog. It shows that even in Hanoi there are trendy indie kids...I am flying over to Hanoi in 2 weeks with my bf. Can you recommend any cool boutiques/vintage stores/jewellery stores/gallerys/bars etc that I should visit. I hope you can help.Jamesjames.firstname.lastname@example.org
hi james,thx for your kind words.you should walk ard the cathedral, the area is packed with diff. kind of shops.boo shop in ta hien has some nice streetwear. i dont really buy my clothes in hn tho :)bui gallery, art vietnam and nha san are the gallerys to visit, but do check hanoigrapevine for info on what is going on. hope it helps:)
Hey. I looked at the booshop online and the mens stock looked kinda cartoonish/corny. I was more after stuff around the aesthetic of Ann Demuelemeester, Zambesi, Chronicles of Never, Ksubi etc. Not the same, but similar aesthetic-value. Who are the exciting designers/boutiques of Hanoi/Ho Chi Minh/Vietnam. Im sure there are some cool underground designers there?
i dont think so i'm afraid. (you might only see some stuff with comme des garcons label :)the hn fashion shops are packed with very very fast fashion made-in-china.the better shops are rather ethnic-eco-neo romantic stuffs for women.they are somewhat cool but not necessarily underground.sorry to dissapoint.
