Alter, short for "alternative," aims to bring high-end brands that are typically overlooked in the Chinese luxury market. Instead of Chanel or Fendi, the shop carries the likes of Robert Rodriguez, Helmut Lang, House of Harlow, Superfine and Victoria Beckham. Carrying on this value of the unconventional, Alter has a fantastically distinctive design and store layout too.
