Most striking feature:
What I love about Aesop (apart from their products) is that when they are building a new store they always include the local environment in it on a spectacular way. The interior of Aesop store in Nolita for example is made out of old copies of the NY Times. And when it was Autumn in Paris they filled the store with autumn leaves on the ground. People from Hong Kong love Aesop according to the six stores they have there (and they also have four shops in department stores). This one is located in Sheung Wan and they used bamboo to decorate the outlook of the store. When you walk through Hong Kong you will notice that bamboo is used quite often on construction sites as well (more than 5 million bamboo rots are used on a yearly base). Inside you will enter an orange heaven of don’t-know-what-to-chose Aesop products. I’ve learned about their new products. There’s a new handsoap available for example. And the now have Aesop Air products. Travel kits depending on the climate you’re travelling to.
