A Store Is Born: Nicopanda

Nicola Formichetti descends on Hong Kong this week to kick off a month-long pop-up shop at Lane Crawford, a recreation of his Nicola’s store in New York. Shoppers can ogle at Lady Gaga costumes on display, as well as an array of products—dolls, notebooks, umbrellas, prints—built around the Nicopanda character. The wide-eyed bear is already so popular in China a welcoming committee greeted Formichetti at the airport. Hello Kitty can’t be everywhere.

Nicopanda lasts May 1-30, Nicopanda Invasion Party on May 4 at the IFC Mall location
