SAMBAG SYDNEY IN HONG KONG
Sambag Syndey just opened its first international store in the up-and-coming trendy PoHo (Po Yan Street, Po Hing Fong near the end of Hollywood Road), Sheung Wan.
The Australian brand worn by celebs such as Nicole Kidman, Hilary Swank and Rachel Griffiths will not disappoint ladies looking for everyday chic staples to add to their wardrobe.
Sam Wagner, designer and owner, designs with a "taste of everyday luxury" and "casual sexiness" - and how can a girl say no to that?
Recommended are Sam's classic ballet flats and boots. Popular choices include the Tina ballet flat ($1200) which comes in an array of colours and is made from pony hair and the Riley boot ($4400) which is made from snake skin and also comes in several shades. In particular, we like the Riley boot in the two tone python – which is a beautiful milky chocolate blend in snake skin making it a very versatile staple.
The added brilliance of the Hong Kong store is that it is the only one in Asia. Customers here will be a season ahead of their Australian counterparts, meaning we get to show off our Sambag goods half a year earlier.
We asked Sam to describe her brand in three words: "classic, stylish and affordable". We don't disagree.
