kapok’s theme for autumn winter is simply – twins – the practice of dressing in similar clothing as your favourite person. it could be your boyfriend, girlfriend, best friend or even furkid.
the idea is to share the same look because you love that person, thus the birth of the term 情侣装 – couple dressing, where you declare your love in public by wearing the same things.
but did you know how this theme came about for us at kapok? as they say, birds of a feather flock together, and very often the crew find ourselves unintentionally dressing in similar pieces.
who better to be ambassadors of our twins theme than our own crew? join us as we go behind the scenes to introduce the faces of each store, sharing what twinning means to each and every one of us.
every week, we will feature one of our stores, and the teammates that tirelessly bring the kapok experience to you. kicking off this series is our newest branch on the tree – kapok hysan place!
p.s.: we say new because we just moved to a fresh spot on 10f in eslite. if you haven’t visited us, perhaps now would be a good time (;

what does twinning mean to you?
B : twinning shows that great minds think alike!
S : a randomly fun experience, that requires effort to pick out something similar and coordinating with the person you adore.. just because you can!
who’s your twin?
B : my twin would be a mix of rachel and chandler from F.R.I.E.N.D.S. – high maintenance and dead inside
S : my mum, we actually look so alike that people refer to us as sisters (and more often than not, i’m identified as the older sister)
