Aegis in Shanghai is definitely one of the most impressive men’s stores I visited while in China. Launched just a little over a year ago, they’re certainly the pioneers in the Chinese fashion retail space.
The space is a beautifully done with a great collection of international brands we know and love (Some NYC classics)– as well as a few small Japanese and Chinese brands I had never seen before. It’s a solid place to pick up shirts, denim, accessories, and even a little technology under the glass.
If you’re heading to Shanghai, I encourage checking it out.

Is there sustainable design in Shanghai? I didn’t think I’d find any, but I stumbled upon a fantastic place. Nest Shanghai is a ‘design with a conscience’ brand concept.
Nest where the sum is greater than its parts: Nest is a design collective created to provide a fulfilling shopping experience through products with substance.
The shop is full of interesting products with high quality craftsmanship and responsible manufacturing. Clearly someone saw what was happening in China and had to take a stand.
If you’re ever in Shanghai I recommend a visit– it’s a welcome reprieve from the crazy fast fashion consumer culture on the main streets.
My bags are packed and I’m heading out tomorrow night for a few weeks in Shanghai, Beijing and Dalian, followed by Japan where I’ll be in Tokyo and Kyoto. Tips welcome as always, and pictures (and other finds) will be posted!
