If any colour defines 2017, it is pink. From the powdery pretty shades of Spring, the hue has mutated to fruity tones of fuchsia and raspberry that still resonate with the sense of feminine empowerment that brought the colour to cult status in political and pop circles alike. So when Lane Crawford chatted to the LA based brand Co, about a global exclusive collection, pink was top of the agenda for the L.A. dwelling founders of the brand, Stephanie Danan and Justin Kern.

 

Practicality and polish are Co’s bywords and that shines through in their capsule that features a pink silk pussy bow blouse dress that would look perfectly en point with a pair of fire red engine boots and piece of plush knitwear. Another favourite is a cable knit that gradates through the pink shade spectrum and promises to vibrate with joy on autumnal days.

The local label collaborates with Parisian dancer Bouboo Thecrow for Lane Crawford

 

Ffixxed Studios has always done things differently. Founded by designers Fiona Lau and Kain Picken and based in the heart of Shenzhen’s mountains, the couple mesh artful ideas with minimal pieces that are hand-created by a family of seamstresses in their local community.

 

In this global exclusive collection for Lane Crawford, the duo created a selection of pieces that extend their workwear-oriented Autumn Winter 2017 collection. “A white shirt, a tapered trouser, a long wool coat and puffer jacket feature subtle shifts and details. Recently, we’ve been interested in dance, particularly Parisian dancer Bouboo Thecrow. His individual style mixes urban and formal elements, and have formed the inspiration behind these pieces,” says Lau.

 

“Bouboo is from Paris but is currently based in Shanghai. We’ve been following him online and when we found out that he was based in China, we were even more intrigued and decided to get in contact with him,” she explains.

 

His unpredictable yet elegant moves have mesmerised Ffixxed Studios: “Dance can elicit such a powerful emotional response, and we can watch his videos for hours with a consistent level of enthusiasm.” This beguiling combination of beauty, art and movement has led to a series of elegant wardrobe pieces that speak volumes.

Who wants what everyone else has got? We all love being individual and that’s why the team at Lane Crawford has bonded with a family of brands to develop special capsules that you will only find in our stores. 

 


LANE CRAWFORD X MARIO CARPE

 

We refuse to let the summer fade, so we buddied up with illustrator, Mario Carpe on a series of brilliant T’s that keep the vibe alive. Spanish born, Prague dwelling Carpe has been scribbling since a kid and his saucy visual puns are full of sunny joy. Try Tamu’s Lemon Aid, or a Screaming Ice Cream and the sun will keep shining. “Live in the present and evolve, stay fresh,” says Carpe.

 

 

 

 

 VICTORIA, VICTORIA BECKHAM

 

Hong Kong’s spectacular cityscape is one of the most inspiring in the world. Victoria Beckham embraces the metropolis in an exclusive capsule of pieces including a Hong Kong skyline silk mix bomber jacket, a signature shift dress and a jumper with the graphic of a boarding gate. What could be better for a departure, national holiday or a homecoming?

 

 

 

 TIBI

 

Clean, modern, relaxed - that’s the mission of Tibi, the line Amy Smilovic set up in Hong Kong in 1997. Now based in New York, in the last three years, Smilovic has re-calibrated the brand giving it a character of its own. We zoned in on shirting, jumpsuits and ruffle skirts – the ultimate pieces to relish right through to 2018.

 

 

 

 

 TORTOISE

 

Sustainability is the future and so is true style. L.A. based Tortoise is bringing a green edge to denim with environmentally friendly washes and treatments. The LC capsule features a frayed edge, ‘Where did you get that?’ Western shirt-dress; love-worn jeans and an asymmetric skirt that has undeniable cool-girl appeal.

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.

Romantic rebels take note because innovative Australian label Song for the Mute is bringing its fine tailoring and deconstructed aesthetic to an exclusive collection for Lane Crawford.


True to its pared-back DNA, the six-piece capsule has innovation and craftsmanship at its heart with a re-developed 10-year-old Japanese fabric that was hand finished by co-founders Melvin Tanaya and Lyna Ty. The pieces take foundations from the SS17 collection ‘Beau’, playing on the delicate romanticism found within and juxtaposing it with the imperfect raw fragility of the forthcoming FW17 collection ‘Moth’. The all-black collection allows contrasting materials and textures to take centre stage, while luxurious details like hanging satin cords and velvet tape imbue each design with a sophisticated romance. 

 

 

Each piece from this raw yet refined collection is a treasure that instantly elevates your look. Discover more at Lane Crawford ifc and Canton Road stores.

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.
