The Anchoret store in Beijing is an ultramodern take on the luxury fashion shopping experience. Staged as an art installation, the inventory at the Anchoret store is made up of stylish fashion forward brands that are generally hard to find in Beijing. Located in a leafy shopping area in the Sanlitun neighborhood, the boutique boasts a floor-to-ceiling glass facade and a "hole in the wall" entrance.

Brands carried at the Anchoret store include Yohji Yamamoto, Mad et Len, Undercover and Vetements. The Anchoret store was designed in a collaboration between Polish architectural practice Speys and husband and wife duo Kit Wong and Kayuet Chau.

The Anchoret store in Beijing signals a desire on the part of Chinese consumers for alternative high-fashion brands that differ from traditional luxury fashion houses.
