G.O.D., Leighton Center
With decor that appears to be a mix of IKEA and Urban Outfitters, this hip store is located in Causeway Bay. The decorations, textiles, lighting, and gifts that Goods of Desire (G.O.D.) carry are unfailingly modern and cool. One of multiple Hong Kong locations, the store’s moniker is based on a slang phrase that means “to live better.” From G.O.D. t-shirts to quirky light fixtures, tableware, and bed linens, many items have local influence, like the pillowcases emblazoned with Chinese characters.
Congratulations to Mei Lin, winner of Top Chef Season 12.
