Open Doors to a World of Space
Life in Hong Kong often revolves around space or more to the point, the lack of it. With many of us living in skyscrapers designed to eek out every available square foot, storage is a precious commodity that we often have to learn to live without. So if your handbags and shoes are vying for space amongst your sports kit, or if your favourite dresses are buried beneath a pile of winter coats, it’s time to get serious about storage.
Thankfully, help is now at hand thanks to the team behind Hong Kong’s first concierge wardrobe storage system, PAKT. Founder Barbara Yu Larsson and her team have created a storage system, harnessing the power of an app to turn your wardrobe from one you stuff, into one you scroll.
Initially inspired by wanting to preserve her own sentimental items including her wedding gown and collection of vintage and couture garments, Yu Larsson has created a system that guarantees users a personalised service including wardrobe collection, individual garment tracking as well as additional services including cleaning and repair. In the hot and humid climate of Hong Kong, the 24 hour climate controlled facility is the ideal place to keep your garments looking fresh and cared for.
So how does it work? It’s very simple. Firstly arrange a free collection appointment via the PAKT website. You will then receive professional photographs of your items and a visual catalogue of what is stored. If anything needs cleaning or even expert repair, this can be arranged for both clothing and footwear. When you wish to have an item redelivered, just go online and arrange a redelivery – as simple as that!
From entry level Bronze membership to elite level Gold there is a membership structure to suit every budget with prices starting at HK$899 per month. Services range from simple storage of seasonal items, right through to concierge delivery of your gown before a gala event; the personal service offered is designed to ensure the process is entirely hassle free.
Yu Larsson plans to develop PAKT into more than just a storage system. She envisages a community where clothing can be shared, rented or even donated to charity. So, don’t delay, now is the perfect time to clear your wardrobe and start benefiting from Hong Kong’s first clothing concierge service.
