But rather, the vitamin you wear. As a cute hat shop, Vitamin covers only about ten sq. meters within WuDaoKou Clothing Market. Yet they¡¯re always crowded, due to their favorable reputation among patrons.
Originally from Korea, where hats are phenomenally popular, Vitamin aims to bring this fashion trend to China. They offer more than ten categories of hats, including baseball hat, cricket cap, octagonal hat, straw hat, and fisherman hat. All stock comes directly from Korea, each with its own unique design.
Several limited edition designs caught my eyes. One used natural denim and linen to make the hats. These are well ventilated, perfect for Beijing¡¯s summer heat. For protection from the sun, try the soft gray army cap (RMB 80). Other notable headgear includes a woven Trilby (RMB 180) and bling-tastic neon bejeweled cap (RMB 120).
Baseball hats are priced at RMB 100-150, cricket caps at RMB 130-150, and gorros priced at RMB 30-120. You may find some hats on sales for a 20% discount occasionally. Sales clerk speak basic English, and can help you pick out your favorite hat.
