Made In The British Crown Colony
The British colonial imprint went as far as Hong Kong’s clothing labels.
Above is a label sewn in a 60s silk jacket bought in a London vintage store by my friend Amanda, another vintage aficionado.
Note that the brand name, Dynasty, is good reflection of Hong Kong’s semantic. Names for apartment buildings or shops in Hong Kong tend to celebrate wealth (Tycoon Court, Wealthy Heights, Rich Court), power (Dynasty Court) or luck.
