In an attractive building set slightly back from the road, Tips is an unusual and funky addition to high-end boutiques on the road. Opened in April, it features a large array of colorful and diverse clothing from several up-and-coming designers, mostly from Europe. They include Mary Katrantzou and Barbara I Gongini, whose collection is for both men and women. T-shirts range between 2,000 and 3,000 yuan and coats are around 5,000 yuan; a leather coat can cost 10,000 yuan. Long and stylish leather gloves are priced at 4,000 yuan and other accessories such as sunglasses and jewelry are priced at between 1,500 and 5,000 yuan. The boutique is constantly evolving; it features around six designers today but aims to showcase 13 by 2012. The back section is a studio where new designers showcase their work. Currently on display are the futuristic-meets-superhero designs of Ground Zero. Their theme is "women power" and they are definitely head turners. The studio space regularly rotates designers and encourages more unusual fashion tastes.
