Remo Ruffini, president and creative director of Moncler, said the 1,500-square-foot store, located on the second floor of the high-end IFC shopping mall in Hong Kong’s Central District, underscores the city’s key position on the retail scene.

"It's really hard sometimes. I think I have a reputation for being really tough and aggressive and pushy but I really am a very shy person who wants to be liked, and that's the conflict constantly.
