Fashion has a lot to say right now. From designers that chose to do it best with slogan tees that proudly announce their fight to the labels that opted to channel their views into brave game-changing collections, there is no better time than now to truly make a statement. We round up the key looks that you need to know for the season ahead.

 

  

THE NEW HERITAGE

 

Fashion is taking inspiration from the rich fabrics of a gentleman’s wardrobe to craft meticulously tailored pieces. Glen checks, Argyle, houndstooth, plaids and tweeds step forward to dominate the new season’s sartorial scene. The weaves and patterns are potent with storytelling and dare us to pick up a plaid habit.

 

 

 

 

   

WORD ON THE STREET

 

Labels are rewinding back to the ‘90s, finding a new love of message tees that proclaim your thoughts and values on your chest. Sometimes playful with a cheeky double entendre, oft provocative to incite a revolution - what’s not to love?

 

 

 

 

 

THE NEW DRESS CODE

 

The season’s new midi-dresses have plenty of volume providing freedom and flow, with trapeze silhouettes leading the charge. Sheer effects, lace, voile-like cottons and silks, ruffles and delicate straps encapsulate the new vision of pretty.

 

 

 

 

SPORTING STRIPES

 

Proclaim your allegiance with a clubhouse stripes from your favourite brands. Keep the rest of the look simple or go all out, either way; it’ll be clear that that you are a jolly good sport.

Cult sportswear brand, Particle Fever first came to viral fame with a sportswear legging with built in underwear and innovation is ingrained in the studio’s DNA. This couldn’t be more evident than with the Shanghai-based label’s worldwide exclusive sports capsule created in collaboration with Lane Crawford and The Woolmark Company.

“Merino wool is not frequently used as activewear, but actually, the function of quality Merino wool is largely underestimated and it is no longer a luxury old-money thing for younger generation,” says Zoey Liu, Co-Founder and CEO, who also cites the benefits of the material for outdoor sports.

The line up (dubbed Hetertopia of Structures) features multifunctional pieces including smart pinstripe wool and mesh bomber jackets; birds eye weave parkas that can wrap up into a backpack plus wool boxer lined shorts, bra tops and leggings in a muted palette with distorted graphics.

With an exercise-addicted team, they put the collection through its paces. “I love rowing, boxing and modern dance (it can help train hidden muscles you usually won’t exercise) and every one of us specialises in a different sport from cross-fit, scuba diving and ironman to the fixed bike,” says Liu. There’s even a speedball in the office and group morning workouts to get endorphins flying. “The collection is refreshingly unconventional, as bold and diverse as things we love to create,” adds Liu.

Asia’s iconic luxury department store Lane Crawford collaborates with The Woolmark Company to launch two worldwide exclusive wool-rich athleisure capsule collections by Helen Lee and Particle Fever under the theme of “FitnessxFashion” in Lane Crawford ifc mall and Shanghai Times Square. 

 

From July 5, Lane Crawford will showcase these collections at captivating fitness inspired visual merchandising displays, highlighting the natural versatility, beauty and benefits of Australian Merino wool as the ideal performance fibre. This campaign also features Chinese supermodel and fitness enthusiast He Sui, who will also join the cocktail with Helen Lee in Lane Crawford Shanghai Times Square on July 8. 

 

With the theme of “Work Out Work”, Helen Lee’s collection aims to motivate urbanites to get moving and aspire towards a healthier, balanced lifestyle. Her layered looks combine modern prints in contrasting colours such as bright yellow and grey, while the use of lightweight and versatile Merino wool fabrics make each garment easy to combine and extremely comfortable to wear.

 

 “When people think of wool, they usually think of thick and heavy materials. However, the fabrics I used in this capsule were in fact incredibly light and breathable, and this project has completely changed my perception of wool,” said Helen Lee. “I aimed to design athleisure pieces in this capsule collection that are practical and easy to mix and match, but also comfortable, stylish and trendy.”   

 

 

 

 

The worldwide exclusive collection designed by Particle Fever perfectly encapsulates its theme “Heterotopia Differences”. From concept development to production, the designers were inspired to completely reinvent their conventional approach to activewear, using Merino wool fabrics to express the functional relationship between our bodies with space and time.  “Right from the beginning of my design process, I prioritized functionality over atheistic,” said Lin Hai, Chief Designer of Particle Fever. “Drawing the inspiration from Merino wool, I hope to bring up that wool-rich athleisure collection can also be stylish and innovative.”

 
The Woolmark Company has joined forces with Lane Crawford in a strategic two-year partnership in China and Hong Kong, to showcase outstanding local and international design talents, and to develop new creations and innovations inspired by Merino wool. In recent years, Merino wool has earned the reputation as a versatile, multifunctional fibre in the activewear sector because of its unique natural features and benefits, such as breathability, temperature control, moisture management, elasticity and resistance to odour.

Millennial Pink: The Shade of Now

Millennial pink, Tumblr pink, Scandi pink - whatever you know it as, you are most definitely familiar with the colour. It’s that fleshy, pastel apricot-meets-salmon shade that is everywhere. Some trace our modern-day obsession with the ubiquitous hue to Wes Anderson’s 2014 film The Grand Budapest Hotel, where it made a grand appearance as the building’s primary colour. From there it began to take over Pinterest boards and Instagram feeds – we dare you to find a fashion or beauty start-up in the last 12 months that didn’t embrace what Pantone has dubbed ‘Pale Dogwood’ - and a phenomenon was born.

 

 

Pop culture (see Solange’s Cranes in the Sky video, Fenty Puma by Rihanna’s latest collection and Justin Bieber’s new set of teeth grills debuted in April) has given the hue a heavy helping of publicity – and this year has been no different as pink products continue to drop by the bucket load. But why the obsession? “Millennial pink is not in your face in the same way bubblegum pink or fuchsia is; it is softer, subtler and surprisingly versatile,” says Kelly Wong, Director of Fashion at Lane Crawford. “Designers are redefining our conventionally feminine idea of pink by playing with silhouettes and introducing it to new modern contexts to create a stronger, tougher colour statement.”


Perhaps it is also our recent fixation with nostalgia – a Pretty in Pink ‘80s Molly Ringwald and ‘90s heroine Cher Horowitz from Clueless comes to mind – that feels so now. Could it be fueled by today’s ferocious modern-day feminist movement? Or maybe it’s simply just a flattering, universally pleasing shade.


Whatever the reason, we’re (still) onboard the pink party train.

Rosie Assoulin is one of the most exciting talents to emerge from New York in recent years. Her signature sweeping silhouettes and oversized ruffles quickly established her as an emerging star since her label’s launch in 2014, and she also won the celebrated Swarovski Collective Award last year.


With a design aesthetic that blurs the line between the romantically fantastical and the reliably practical, with pieces wrought from some of the world’s most sumptuous fabrics, it could be said that Rosie Assoulin invented statement daywear as we know it today.


The capsule collection, exclusive to Lane Crawford worldwide, encompasses all that makes her designs so desirable. Whether you are looking to channel a maximalist aesthetic or finding a piece to take you from day to night – the collection has you covered. And as the weather is heating up, Assoulin’s signature off-the-shoulder style adds structure and elegance to relaxed summer style.
