What to see and wear this November in Hong Kong

foals - band playing at Clockenflap


This year’s Clockenflap lineup sees the legendary Chemical Brothers headlining, arguably backed by the three-day festival’s most eclectic musical mix to date. Lovers of indie, funk, post-rock, raprave, reggae and more will all find something to tap their toes to.

Sharing the spotlight with the headliners will be Sigur Rós, an Icelandic band best known for its ethereal sound, and Foals, the English indie-rockers. Every year, Clockenflap – first staged in 2008 – seems to get a little bigger.

This year, the event relocates from its longtime home of the West Kowloon Cultural District to the Central Harbourfront space.

It’s not all about the music, though. Art exhibits and a variety of performances are also promised, all designed to amuse, perplex and intrigue viewers.

Venue: Central Harbourfront
Date: 25-27 November

Rihanna Fenty CollectionPath


Divas and stylistas who have long dreamed of walking in Rihanna’s shoes now have their chance to take a glam class in Rockstar 101. The Barbadian-born singer has teamed up with Puma to create the Fenty clothing and shoe collection, now set to land in Hong Kong. The D-Mop shop, in Causeway Bay’s Fashion Walk, will host the city’s first pop-up Fenty Puma store – an exclusive event with the promise of free-flow wine. High-heel leather sneakers, lace-up corsets and kimono track jackets are all among the bold items in this rebellious collection.

For the “work, work, working” woman who likes to run errands in style, fur sandals in four incandescent colours are among the hottest items on Puma’s website. Men’s items in the collection, meanwhile, include a zip-up sneaker boot with a platform midsole, and a suede sneaker with a platform “creeper” sole.

Venue: D-Mop, Shop 3, G/F, 2-4 Kingston St, Fashion Walk, Causeway Bay
Date: 7 November, 6-9 pm
Enquiries: 2505 8982
