6IXTY8IGHT was founded and established in Hong Kong in 2002 by Erik Ryd, a Swedish entrepreneur with an established lingerie manufacturing business in Asia. Erik saw a gap in the market for a modern lingerie brand that was youthful and energetic, and provided value for money. He seized the opportunity by successfully launching the first ready-to-wear fashion lingerie collection in Paris. In 2003, Erik set up 6IXTY8IGHT's headquarters in Hong Kong and the first store in Beijing, with much success.
From 2006 onwards, the brand expanded beyond its lingerie range, to include sleepwear, loungewear, everyday apparel and accessories. Splashed in 6IXTY8IGHT’s signature shade of pink, each store is a haven for the girls and sealed the brand’s status as a girl’s favourite one-stop shopping destination.
6IXTY8IGHT quickly expanded to more than 200 stores across Mainland China, Hong Kong, Macau, Taiwan, South Korea, and Southeast Asia, including Singapore and Malaysia. 6IXTY8IGHT continues to strive for a seamless retail experience through both physical stores and online platforms. Pursuing their constant mission of providing customers with quality, comfortable, and playful designs at pocket friendly prices.
MEANING OF 6IXTY8IGHT
