“25 Rue St Germain,” “Je T’Aime” and “Star” these are some of the spirited words on Sonia Rykiel’s new Manifesto capsule collection of sweaters that creative director Julie De Libran has curated to celebrate the brands’ 50th year.


The late Sonia Rykiel had a passion for books and words (so much so that she assembled her own library in the St Germain flagship that de Libran has since had restored) and penned several books and essays.



Her most adored was a quirky lexicon of style called “Dictionnaire Déglingué,” which translates as ‘collapsed dictionary,’ and within it, the author assembled her favourite poems, aphorisms and words in an eccentric, sensual riff on style, life and love. She likens a dictionary to Sauternes (the sweet French pudding wine) and describes it as, “a sublime bottle to drink while looking into the eyes without leaving.”



One can now imbibe the seductive power of Sauternes on an olive green sweater. The words bounce of the bold graphic knits with good humour, some making more ‘sense’ than others. But then, a little ‘word play’ is one of life’s true pleasures.

Suzy Drawer $21,500


Great design to me should tick three boxes: It must make you feel good, be functional and have a beautiful aesthetic that never dates,” shares Caroline Olah, founder of designer furniture brand Reddie.


It’s three boxes Olah confidently ticks with her timeless, light-hearted and functional collection of furniture, including dining tables, block stools, stackable dining chairs, coffee tables and benches, all crafted in beautiful materials in classic forms - with just the right touch of retro. What’s partially impressive about the collection is the quality. Made by a team of craftsmen in Central Java Indonesia who specialise in Danish woodworking, each piece is made using the world’s most premium wood - solid teak - paired with European marbles, and promises to last a lifetime.






As Hong Kong’s typically bite-sized abodes can make decorating feel like a challenge, we ask the interior designer and former local resident what tricks she has up her sleeve when it comes to making a modest home look larger.


 “Choose a dining table or sofa that is your ideal size and then work from there. If your place is small, don’t shy away from picking a larger statement piece. Oversized mirrors are also another way to double your room size. I also find having a pared back space makes you feel calmer, and gives your mind room to breathe, so pick a few great pieces and keep out the clutter. Additionally, I love large tropical plants. When you’re unable to have a large backyard, they help clean the air and bring an outdoor feel to your home.”



Suzy Laptop Table $2,500



As for what Reddie pieces work best for a home with limited space? “The Vinny Media unit is great for small flats, as it has so much storage, and can hide all the ugly electronic equipment. The doors are perforated so you can change the channel whilst closed. The Suzy laptop table also works well because you can place it anywhere and work from any part of your home. It’s light and easy to move, and you can use it to eat or work on,” shares Olah.

Introducing the next new generation of fashion





“I want to express the new sense of men’s tailoring,” says Shanghai-based Li Gong. And, having graduated with an MA in Fashion from London’s prestigious Central Saint Martins this year, the emerging talent could not wait to get his ideas off the block.


Gong ‘compressed’ his own name to come up with the brand name and focused his ambition on translating tailoring traditions for the street. There are plaid trousers with thigh inserts, tailored track pants, bold shouldered spencer jackets with zipper pockets in the well considered, urban mix.


Gong, who we discovered through our Creative Call Out programme earlier this year, states his leading aesthetic as “Form follows function,” something that wowed our judges.








With his fresh, dapper take on sportswear  - not to mention a brilliant brand name - entrepreneur, Lerry Liang, was amongst the winners from our Creative Call Out 2017 programme.


Liang’s passion for East Asian pop culture, boy bands and Japanese anime is channeled into a snappy capsule featuring pinstripe baseball pants and caps, polo neck tops and hoodies finished off with punchy numeric and graphics.

Introducing the bright young things that are set to light fashion on fire







Imagine a drape and twist T-shirt that shows off your midriff or a pair of brief-meets-thong knickers that flash above your waistband – Sirloin is a Shanghai brand that’s big on cheeky glamour or ‘stupid elegance’ as the founders Mao Usami and Alve Lagercrantz dub it.


“We encourage people to embrace their twisted minds or strange habits and we find ideas from funny fleeting funny moments on the street. Our Roll and tee took its cue from Chinese men who like rolling up their tees in hot summer day to flash their beer bellies.”



Sirloin debuted its Spring Summer collection in Paris but in the grand art deco public toilets located at Place de la Madeleine. Madness is the mother of invention as they say.





Hailing from Sydney, Elissa McGowan is as obsessed with sculpture as she is with the way women live. “The way a woman feels is paramount to the development of each piece, and I like to select beautiful yet practical fabrications that allow her to move through her day with ease and confidence,” says McGowan who set up her label in 2013.


She seeks out environmentally friendly fabrics, crafting them into pieces with wardrobe lasting-power such as tunics and palazzo pants, flute sleeve blouses and smock shirts. “I love the 70’s and the early 80’s as a reference, that whole Jerry Hall look. When my woman wants to dress up, she does it on her terms. No fuss, very clean and strong,” says McGowan who uses flourishes of gold for buckles, grommets and earrings as a signature.


“Fashion’s ability to have an emotional impact upon a person is truly incredible. It fills you with optimism, hope and empowerment. It offers you the freedom of imagination.”

Founded by the Taiwanese creative outlet NE.SENSE, Necessity Sense has teamed up with Lane Crawford to create a global exclusive capsule collection. This “Glory Times” collection pays tribute to Beyond, the influential Hong Kong rock band with greatest hit in the 80’. The song is heavily inspired by the African culture and social movement under Nelson Madela’s leadership. 



As a tribute to the legendary band, Necessity Sense reinterpreted the punk style with an African touch whilst encapsulating the fashion style of Beyond’s vocalist - Wong Ka Kui. The global exclusive capsule collection consists of varieties of tops, jackets and loose sweatpants with subtle details such as flannel grids, stripes and an earthy colour palette inspired by the African traditional patterns.



Necessity Sense will be available at Lane Crawford stores and online in January 2018.
