After running top Beijing boutique Dongliang for nearly a decade and opening a location in Shanghai, the team behind the multi-brand shop have a new project. Paint, the company’s younger, more colourful sister store opened this summer on quiet Guozijian.
Similarly to the original shoppers can expect collections from domestic designers, however co-founder Charles Wong promises that Paint will cater towards younger and more daring dressers. Collections including Angel Chen’s, with bright oversized parkas and vibrant graffiti patterns, and London-based menswear designer Fengchen Wang’s line the boutique's walls, and shoppers can also scoop up vintage accessories and imported perfumes.
With laid-back vibes, an espresso machine and a small courtyard to sit in, Wong tells us he wants this location to be a place to stock up on designer duds and as well as host the occasional gallery show. For the shop's latest news and products, find Paint on WeChat (paintdongliang).
