Hong Kong–based retailer Blanc de Chine—which literally means "White of China"—brings an Eastern elegance to its Fifth Avenue flagship store with fluid architecture and Zen-inspired fashion. An expansive two-story window beckons passersby into the bamboo-laden, tranquil space. Once inside, (primarily) women encounter revamped Chinese pieces hanging against the walls of the main floor—from modernized Qipao dresses to comfortable but fashionable "leather silk" jackets and skirts. A series of display cubes that runs the length of the store showcases smaller items like hand-carved, wooden purses; rare, Vicuña scarves; and intricately crafted jewelry. Up the spiraling staircase, men looking to make an adventurous fashion statement can choose from a variety of Mandarin jackets or the popular, updated scholar's robe. Each garment is made from the finest cashmere or silk, and to further drive home the store's harmonious approach to fashion, each piece is tagged with a mini-tutorial on the guiding principles of Blanc de Chine: simplicity, serenity, purity.
