British childrenswear label Aquascutum Junior has two boutiques in Hong Kong, one at Harbour City’s Ocean Terminal (3-27 Canton Road) and another within New Town Plaza.
Aquascutum, meaning “water shield” in Latin, a brand that also creates stylish menswear and womenswear clothing, was established by tailor John Emary in 1851 in London, UK.
Emary had a mission to design stylish protection from the unpredictable British weather, inventing and patenting a technique for shower-proofing wools as the first rain repellent cloth on the market.
Today, the company is recognized for their fine craftsmanship, use of luxurious fabrics, and unparalleled attention to details.
Over the years, the brand has been popular among global celebrities, aristocrats, and actors, people like Prince Rainier of Monaco, Sir Winston Churchill, Humphrey Bogart, Lauren Bacall, Sophia Loren, Cary Grant, and Michael Caine.
The children’s collection, Aquascutum Junior, delivering the same understated, British elegance as the women’s and men’s collection do, was first launched in 2012.
