LaForet is another small and trendy shopping mall/centre in the bustling area of Causeway Bay. In close distant you are can find Causeway Plaza, Windsor House, the Fashion Walk or the Japanese department store Sogo – all reachable within a few minute walk. The LaForet shopping mall lies just behind the Sogo and opposite of Causeway Plaza.
The LaForet has about 45,000 square feet of retail area and is compared to other shopping malls such as IFC Mall or Harbour City rather small. On three floors, shoppers can find numerous trendy items and products ranging from the latest fashion, shoes and accessories to cosmetics. The ground floor is occupied by the Chow Tai Fook Jewellery Company while the real hunting for the latest fashion items will start on Floor 1 and 2. Just like it surrounding neighbor shopping malls, LaForet offers lots of Japanese and local fashion boutiques. These little shops and stores cater mainly the need and taste of the local youth and younger generation. Having said that, there are still plenty of shops and stores with local jewelry, crystal or accessories designers which are worthy to have a closer look if you are looking for some unique and special items.
