Colouring is among our first activities growing up. We learn about colour, shape and size of different things, and develop our creativity along the way. But colouring is not only for children. Founded in 2012, French Lifestyle Brand OMY makes sure that everyone can have fun through colouring. Most of OMY’s products are comic, black-and-white line art designed by French designers and illustrators, featuring different city maps with local landmarks and cultural symbols. These adorable, amusing and adult-friendly products will certainly attract the attention from fans of all ages!
From 11 September to 11 October, Harbour City will set up the first OMY Pop-Up Store in Hong Kong, selling over a hundred lifestyle and colouring products designed by the brand, including an exclusive, brand new Hong Kong Map and a Harbour City x OMY Limited Edition Pouch. Meanwhile, Harbour City introduces “Colour Your Travel Map” campaign, to let you “travel around the world” from the comfort of Hong Kong.
Exclusive Pre-Launch of Brand New Hong Kong Map & Pouch
Delivered from France, over a hundred products will be available at the Pop-Up Store. Besides colouring papers of various sizes based on comic city maps / different cultural themes from around the world, don’t forget to snap up colouring tools and card games here. Now, let’s spice up the weekend family activities and enjoy a quality time with the kids, by colouring up and travelling around the world together at home with these fun items!
The latest comic Hong Kong map will be pre-launched exclusively at the Pop-Up Store. The map depicts Hong Kong landmarks such as the iconic Victoria Harbour from both sides, the Hong Kong International Airport, Kai Tak Cruise Terminal, the Big Buddha, and Ocean Terminal Deck. Meanwhile, it incorporates Hong Kong’s cultural symbols and famous culinary delights, such as Star Ferry, horse racing, mahjong, dim sum and egg tart. On the other hand, Harbour City has joined hands with OMY in designing a Limited Edition Pouch for charity sale (retails for $110). Colour it up and create your own, unique fashion item!
This Pop-Up Store aims to raise funds for Little Yellow Flower to help underprivileged children by giving them support in proper education. All proceeds from the sale of the “Harbour City x OMY Limited Edition Pouch” will go to the foundation, while net proceeds from the sale of other products will also go to the foundation.
To complete the world travelling experience for you, we accept payment in specific foreign currencies, such as Euro, Japanese Yen and British Pound, and the change will be donated to the foundation just like we donate the leftover foreign currency in the return flight after travel.
Release Your Creativity at the Colouring Experience Zone for Free
It is not necessary to confine the creativity and imagination at home. We have set up a Colouring Experience Zone for free entry, a fun, invigorating area for both adults and kids to release their creative energy. Take a snap in front of two giant crayons, and paint on a pencil-shaped house, a Hong Kong map wall, or colouring papers on the studio tables!

We can all agree that we miss going on a trip so much. Therefore, Harbour City elaborates the theme of “world map” and launches the “Colour Your Travel Map @ Harbour City” campaign, with different “journeys”, including a “Boarding Gate” Photo Hotspot and plenty of “Itineraries” for you to travel around the globe simply by staying at Harbour City!
Get On-board at the “Boarding Gate” Photo Hotspot and Take off from the Victoria Harbour
It’s a ritual for us to take a selfie at the boarding gate before getting on board a plane. To let you feel the long-lost excitement of going on a trip again, we have built a “Boarding Gate” Photo Hotspot at the Ocean Terminal Deck, showing different destinations from time to time, such as Paris, Amsterdam and Tokyo. Capture the Instagrammable moments against the splendid Victoria Harbour and get as many “likes” as you can!
Meanwhile, you can purchase the Limited Edition Pouch at HK$80, by sharing one of your beautiful photos in front of the “Boarding Gate”, and telling us the city you want to travel to and why with hashtag #harbourcity and #hctravel.
Travel Around the Globe at the Mall Follow the Itineraries to Shop, Dine and Have Fun
Feeling the urge to have a taste of the global cuisines and do “crazy shopping” like you’re travelling? We have devised a series of “Travelling Around the World at Harbour City” Itineraries for “travelers” like you to shop, dine and have fun at different stores and restaurants from places like, Japan, Taiwan, US and Europe at Harbour City. Taste fine foods and grab special items at these special locations with further details at our website.
