While COVID-19 may have caused a surge in online shopping, the luxury market is constantly reinventing and innovating the in-store experience to remain relevant. One example is BELOWGROUND, Hongkong Land’s latest experience-led retail initiative, combining luxury, fashion, culture, and art in a 6,000 square-foot space.
