Hong Kong has seen its fair share of pop-up stores, but Labyrinth, which opens today, is unique in that it merges the worlds of biotechnology and fashion. The brainchild of designer Elaine Young, the store will carry Amula, a series of necklaces in solid silver or silver, rose, yellow or black gold-plated (prices from HK$735) containing actual DNA from animals or plants. There's also an option to customise your own (from HK$2,325) - think of it as a 21st-century version of the locket. Also look for Host, a line of bags and accessories (from HK$270) featuring microscopic images. The store will be open until the end of February at 200 Hollywood Rd, Sheung Wan, tel: 9121 9384.
