To celebrate the modern Chinese craftsmanship, Asia’s iconic luxury department store Lane Crawford brings three Chinese artisanal brands together, showcasing a special edit of furniture and home accents from X+Q, Shang Xia and The Fabrick Lab. From bamboo marquetry jewellery box and handwoven cushion to exquisitely crafted figurine, each piece embodies the modern aesthetics with the spirit of Chinese culture. From August to September, “The Makers” series invites customers to experience the finest in Chinese artisanal design at Lane Crawford ifc mall and Pacific Place home store. Join us over cocktails as we discover the intricacy of the production journey with the designers and brand representatives. 

 

X+Q


Founded by the renowned contemporary Chinese sculptors and artists Qu Guangci and Xiang Jing,
X+Q Art hopes to deliver a sincere wish of happiness, love and affection through their works. Each piece is completely handcrafted from beginning to end; the X+Q collections are made in limited quantities. Take a closer look at the soulful expression of Baby Bunny; it will make you pause and smile; while the “Ai Mei • Midsummer” can melt your heart with her angelic face. The “Ai Mei • Midsummer” series is Le Méridien Hotels & Resorts’ s first-of-its-kind collaboration with Chinese art collective X+Q Art. 

The initiative shares a passion for diversity, celebrating the unique sense of place of the Le Méridien hotels across Greater China. Each Midsummer girl represents a dynamic location of Le Méridien hotels in China with its own specially designed costume inspired by local places. 

“With its passion for culture, this collaboration is an ideal platform to share our inspirations and aspirations for art, bringing them to an audience that appreciates modern aesthetics and the emotions they evoke,” said Qu Guangci, co-founder, X+Q Art. “Our work with Le Méridien embodies our joint appreciation of different destinations and diverse local cultures, as well as the magic that lies behind the discovery of new places in greater depth.” 
 
The contemporary Chinese sculptor Qu Guangci will be joining the cocktail at Lane Crawford ifc mall on Aug 18 evening. Explore Qu’s sculpture language and his post-political expression techniques from the sculptures. He has an amazing ability to combine tradition and modern, culture and design, all at the right balance.

Shang Xia

 

Dedicated to the discovery of graceful living, Shanghai-based label Shang Xia, merges contemporary design and Chinese culture to create home accents. Bamboo is a part of many traditions and livelihoods. To preserve the natural beauty of bamboo, Shang Xia reinvents Zhejiang’s most remarkable handicraft: bamboo marquetry with modern technology. Inspired by the graceful lines of Ming Dynasty furniture, the ‘Twilight’ collection includes cherry wood jewellery boxes and round trays, inlaid with delicate carved bamboo. The created graphic lattice pattern is an innovation in the marquetry tradition, and Shang Xia logo is combined with the traditional sayagata pattern to form a unique, delicate yet durable design. This new collection continues to represent the flow of energy from the past, present and future. 

 

Discover the modern elegance of Twilight collection and the art of bamboo marquetry in store; Join the cocktail and experience the finest modern Chinese craftsmanship demonstration by the brand’s artisan on September 2 at Lane Crawford Pacific Place home store.

 

The Fabrick Lab

 

Devoted to the search for experimental textile surfaces and materials for bespoke luxury environment, The Fabrick Lab expands the boundaries of textile, connecting local villagers in Guizhou in the Southern China to co-design lifestyle products. 

 

Known as the ‘techno fairy’ by Elle Deco and a materialologist, The Fabrick Lab designer and founder, Elaine Ng designed an efficient work model with them to achieve skill exchange and helped Guizhou weavers to create a sustainable way of living through making craft. Batik wooden stool, silk scarf and handwoven cushion are handcrafted pieces, using traditional tools with generations of experience. From extracting indigo dye from plants to creating a naturally water repellent cotton surface, the local villagers take every inspiration from nature. The Fabrick Lab treasures traditional Chinese culture and reinvents home accents with a sense of continuity. The production of hand-dyed batik wooden stool shows that batik making technique can be applied to hard surface, which Guizhou artisans have never done before. 

 

Explore the exquisite handmade crafts of The Fabrick Lab. Elaine will share her creative inspiration on the use of experimental materials at Lane Crawford Pacific Place home store on September 16. Her work has been exhibited at museums like V&A in London and Textile Museum in Toronto; while her art and design research has been widely featured. Her distinctive design approach has proved inspirational to many.

Lane Crawford also continues to introduce the newest emerging brands to Hong Kong through special collaboration projects and exclusive collections: 


Womenswear 

A second-generation Chinese-American born and raised in New York, Sandy Liang debuts at Lane Crawford this season with a worldwide exclusive capsule collection. Liang is loved for her distinctly laidback style and designs that ooze an easy confidence. Her romantic capsule collection features shirting pieces inspired by everyday workwear essentials with a touch of humour and downtown attitude. Wavy hemmed dresses and spliced shirts exude a playful nonchalance, while quirky details such as ruffles, stripes, and bows play on dualistic qualities of hard and soft. Created for modern city girls seeking elevated wardrobe classics, Sandy Liang’s new capsule collection strikes the perfect balance between personality and sophistication.



The newest name in Lane Crawford’s Created in China programme, where we nurture and champion emerging Chinese designers, is Xiao Li, a critically acclaimed knitwear label founded by China-born, London-based designer, Xiao Li. The brand was shortlisted for the prestigious LVMH Prize in 2015. Celebrated for its experimental, sculptural take on knitwear, Xiao Li’s colourfully voluminous designs feature innovative yarns and textures and are inspired by modern architectural structures. Garments are deconstructed, giving the illusion of being unfinished, and jackets are created from an embossed technical fabric that feature stepped hems, reflecting the idea of speed.



Newcomer Monse, by designers Laura Kim and Fernando Garcia, debuted last year to a line-up of high-profile industry insiders with a collection of modern wardrobe staples that exude an easy elegance with a touch of glamour. Having spent a combined 18 years under the tutelage of Oscar de la Renta before starting their own label, Kim and Garcia are well versed in the art of female dressing. Defined by reworked shirting and separates, Monse’s Autumn Winter 2016 collection features sharp, wearable pieces inspired by vintage men’s suiting with asymmetric cuts and deconstructed tailoring to create new shirting staples. 



Menswear

By Walid catapults the modern-day philosophy of sustainability to the forefront with its one-of-a-kind garments crafted with handpicked antique fabrics. Created by British-Iraqi designer, Walid Al Damirji, By Walid transforms 18th and 19th century fabrics into contemporary couture pieces, each one unique in its own right and embodying delicate, artisanal originality. Transporting customers on a journey through history, By Walid is a collection of rare, romantic creations that finds beauty in the old, the discarded, and the forsaken.


                                                     By Walid                                                  Wan Hung


The newest menswear designer to join Lane Crawford’s Created in China programme is Wan Hung, founded by London-based designer Wan Hung Cheung in 2014. The emerging label is defined by its classic silhouettes and sharp tailoring, where traditional wardrobe essentials are reinvented through innovative use of textiles and prints as well as contemporary detailing. Originally hailing from Hainan, China, Cheung juxtaposes the natural beauty of his hometown with the modern-day urban experience to create luxury collections that are sophisticated yet playful.


The Fit Room

The highly anticipated Fenty x Puma collection by music superstar, Rihanna, also makes its debut at Lane Crawford this season. The athleisure-meets-streetwear collection sees Rihanna’s personal aesthetic injected into bold sportswear pieces featuring dramatic proportions, genderless designs, and deconstructed looks. Challenging traditional male and female silhouettes, Rihanna “blurs the lines between genders that are oftentimes too rigid for her fashion tastes”, creating maximalist-style pieces punctuated by gothic elements and a heavy dose of attitude. From hoodie dresses and reinterpreted bomber jackets to oversized coats and skin-tight jumpsuits, the first Fenty x Puma collection makes a bold statement with its amped-up take on traditional sportswear essentials.
