The hive is a chic multi-brand fashion boutique featuring a selected collection of Chinese designers' clothes. Opened by Singaporeans Gary Yip and Jennie Tsen, the pair has noticed a great improvement from Chinese designers in recent years. Yip says he has always had a strong interest in fashion and has been exposed to it since a young age and through the course of his work. He believes Chinese designers are comparable to overseas designers. He says the quality, fabric, fit and cut are all well balanced by Chinese designers. The shop currently carries eight brands including threeSociety, JL, Matchbox and Studio P.I. The owners plan to open more stores in Shanghai and other cities.
