Inside a Designer’s Whirlwind Trip to Hong Kong and Tokyo

Nomia’s Yara Flinn takes us along for the ride.

For some, travel means lying on a beach with your out-of-office reply firmly switched to “On.” And we feel that. For others, like Yara Flinn, for example, the effortlessly cool designer behind cult New York label Nomia, a trip is a chance for an adventure in a place entirely different than home (and maybe mix a bit of business with pleasure). No, a week spent in Hong Kong and Tokyo isn’t exactly a relaxing getaway, but that’s beside the point. For Flinn it was a chance to explore—the markets and hills in Hong Kong, and the vintage shops (hello, vintage Comme des Garçons) and cat cafés (yes, you read that right) of Tokyo.

“On one of our last night’s in Hong Kong my colleague and I decided to do something very touristy and take a Dragon Boat evening tour. I am so glad we did it. The city lights reflecting off the harbor complimented by the perfect soundtrack and a glass of wine was the perfect way to end our amazing time in Hong Kong. I can’t wait to go back!”
