After Chictopia and Helen Lee, Lane Crawford would like to introduce you another emerging brand from China, Ms MIN. Taking "simplicity with depth, romanticism with edge, classic with twist" as the driving spirit behind the collections, the brand shows all the audience strong sense of culture and arts.

Being on the top emerging designer list, this Xiamen based designer Min Liu was graduated with a BA in Womenswear from the London College of Fashion in 2007. Following a yearlong stint in the atelier department at Viktor & Rolf, Min Liu took an Assistant Designer post with Ports before launching her own signature line, Ms MIN, in January 2010. The brand name “Ms MIN” implies feminism and independence. Instead of being bound by convention, the brand designer, Min Liu prefers Ms. as her title of respect, a prefix that defines her, not by marital status, but by her own worth. Along with this brand direction, Min Liu combines modernity with classicism. Exquisite fabrics, expert technique, beautifully cut silhouettes are the hallmarks of her aesthetic philosophy.

Ms Min collection is available at Lane Crawford Shanghai Times Square and lanecrawford.com.cn.

Over the past decade, the name Helen Lee has become synonymous with Shanghai fashion. Following her graduation from the Raffles-design-institute and two years working in Japan, Helen Lee returned to Shanghai and founded insh.

Being recognised repeatedly as one of China’s top young designers, Helen Lee has received numerous awards, includ­ing Belgium’s Les Etoiles de la Mode, and has her collections displayed at the fashion weeks of Shanghai, Stockholm and Vancouver.

LANE CRAWFORD OPENS CHINA FLAGSHIP STORE IN SHANGHAI

CREATING THE ULTIMATE LUXURY FASHION AND LIFESTYLE DESTINATION


 

Hong Kong (October 10, 2013) - Lane Crawford, the iconic, luxury department store, opens the doors of its China flagship store in Shanghai on October 10, providing customers with a one-stop luxury fashion and lifestyle destination in the heart of the city.

 

Located in Shanghai’s Times Square at 99 Huai Hai Zhong Road, the new store encompasses 150,000 square feet (approximately 14,000 square metres) over four floors, with 500 international brands across women’s fashion, beauty and fine jewellery, menswear and home and lifestyle.

 

It is the most extensive international luxury and designer brand portfolio available in Greater China.

 

The store represents an RMB 400 million investment and is the largest store in Lane Crawford’s portfolio, which now totals eight stores in Greater China.

 

“Lane Crawford is invested in creating the future of global retail, in the market of the future,” Andrew Keith, President, Lane Crawford said.

 

“Global retail leadership is now coming from China, and the China customer is at the forefront of fashion. We set out to create the ultimate luxury fashion and lifestyle destination – the largest selection of luxury brands in an innovative, highly visual space, offering world-class service at a scale never before seen in Shanghai,” he said.

 

The Shanghai store was designed in collaboration with leading international architecture firm Yabu Pushelberg, who have worked with Lane Crawford on four previous stores. The store’s design has taken on a modern gallery approach to retail, enabling Lane Crawford to create dynamic, inspiring and ever-evolving environments throughout.

 

Mr Keith said the unique collection of products was selected by a buying team of 85 experts based on a deep personal understanding of their Chinese customers and close relationships they have with brand partners globally. Featured brands range from international designers including Alexander McQueen, Givenchy, Lanvin, Saint Laurent Paris to new generation designers including Alexander Wang and Sacai, and contemporary collections including Alice & Olivia and the introduction of J. Crew in China.

“When we opened our first store in Beijing in 2007, we introduced more than 300 new international brands to China for the first time. In Shanghai we’re building on that portfolio with greater depth, and driving innovation through an elevated service proposition that includes specialist personalised services not seen before in this market,” Mr Keith said.

 

More than 20,000 square feet (approximately 1,800 square metres) of the store has been dedicated to personalised services in beauty, fashion and lifestyle conducted in luxurious, private styling areas for a unique, tailor-made experience for customers and delivered by 65 stylists and concierge staff.

 

As part of Lane Crawford’s connected commerce strategy, the Shanghai flagship store and Lane Crawford’s online store are completely connected to provide a seamless shopping experience both in store and at home. Customers can order online and collect or return their orders at a special Online Shopping Concierge in the store, which is another first in the market.

 

Another 3,000 square feet (app. 278 square metres) is designated for creative displays and specifically, a space called The Hub aims to showcase and support emerging creative talent in fashion, art and design, by showcasing their work in the heart of the store.

 

“We’re incredibly excited about the creativity originating in China and we wanted to offer new talent the platform to create and collaborate, while giving them exposure to a broader audience,” Mr Keith said.

 

Lane Crawford has also bought into the collections of three China fashion designers, Helen Lee, Ms Min and Chictopia, which are highlighted in the Hub and on the womenswear floor, while the retailer’s Fashion Director mentors them on structuring businesses that can ultimately expand internationally.

 

Mr Keith concluded, “Lane Crawford has a long history in China and particularly Shanghai. Since the company opened its first store here on Nanjing Road in 1872, the city has been an important part of our heritage and we are thrilled to be back in the heart of Shanghai.”

To celebrate the opening­ of the Shanghai Store, Lane Crawford has invited internationally renowned fashion brands Emilio Pucci, Proenza Schouler, 3.1 Phillip Lim, Jason Wu, Diane Von Furstenberg and J.

香港(20131010日)- 著名奢侈品百貨公司連卡佛於1010開設其迄今在中國最大的旗艦店,為消費者在上海提供一個奢侈時尚和生活方式終點站。

 

上海旗艦店位于淮海中路99號的上海時代廣場,面積達150,000平方英尺(14,000平方米),合共四層。旗艦店將滙聚500多個國際品牌,當中包括女裝、美容、珠寶首飾、男裝以及生活方式等商品組合。

 

這是在大中華地區最豐富的國際奢侈品和設計師品牌組合。

 

該旗艦店的投資額約為四億人民幣,是連卡佛在大中華地區的第八家門店,也連卡佛迄今為止最大的門店。

 

連卡佛總裁Andrew Keith表示:「連卡佛致力於這未來的市場投資創造全球零售市場的未來。

上海旗艦店是連卡佛與國際知名建築事務所Yabu Pushelberg合作設計的。Yabu Pushelberg與連卡佛合作設計過四家門店。上海旗艦店採用了現代畫廊的設計方法,使得全店能有一個充滿活力的、啟發性的和不斷變化的整體環境。

 

Mr. Keith表示連卡佛獨特的產品集合是由85名採購專家根據其個人對中國消費者的深刻理解和與全球品牌夥伴的密切關係精挑細選出來的。連卡佛的特色品牌包括國際設計師品牌,如 Alexander McQueen Givenchy Lanvin Saint Laurent Paris;新一代設計師品牌,如Alexander WangSacai;當代設計師系列,如Alice & Olivia;以及新引進入中國的J. Crew

 

Mr. Keith續說:「我們在北京開首家門店的時候,將300多個國際品牌第一次引進到中國市場。在上海,我們將在原來的基礎上更上一層樓,通過提升包括在中國市場前所未有的個化服務來加強創新。

 

上海旗艦店將面積超過20,000平方英尺(1,800平方米)的空間辟為美容、時尚以及生活方式的個人性化服務區域。65位個人形象顧問和禮賓人員將在這些奢華和私密的服務區域為顧客打造獨特的、個化的購物體驗。

另外還有約3,000平方英尺(278平方米)的是名為The Hub的特色空間,專門展示創意作品。The Hub旨在通過在店中心展出新興設計師和藝術家的作品,來支他們的成長和發展。

 

Mr. Keith表示: 「我們對源于中國的創造力感到非常的興奮,我們希望能夠在幫助新興人才接觸到更廣泛的受眾的同時,也能夠為他們提供一個創造和合作的平。」

連卡佛已經購入了Helen LeeMs Min Chictopia三個中國時裝設計師品牌的女裝系列。這些品牌在The Hub和女裝樓層都有展示和出售。連卡佛的時裝總監正在為這三位設計師就如何構建企業以至最終擴大到國際市場提供輔導。

 

Mr. Keith總結說:「連卡佛在中國,尤其是上海有很悠久的歷史。自從連卡佛在1872年在南京西路開設了第一家門店,上海便成為了我們傳統的重要組成部分,我們對於再次回到上海的心臟地帶感到激動不已。

The First Fragrance by Repetto


For high resolution images, please download from the link below:

https://lanecrawford.box.com/s/xhv894t19mfkgcvqtdjn


Repetto has now created a fragrance of their very own, an elegant aura, like a ballerina performing an arabesque driven by a subtle signatureproviding self-confidence and lifting the body into the air like a Carlotta ballerina. Repetto called on perfumer Olivier Polge to create the formula, featuring Repetto ambassador Miss Dorothée Gilbert, Principal Dancer of the Opéra National de Paris.

Rose is the fragrance’s spine, rolling over the skin like a satin ribbon. A rhythmical choreography that opens with the optimistic entrechatsof pear and cherry blossom accords. We also recognise the precious essence of rose fusing with orange blossom. A bewitching floral heart that arches towards the powdery base like a dancer in her partner’s arms. Then comes the sensualpas de deux between the vanilla pod and the warmth of the amber wood to create absolute equilibrium. A tender, delicate, refined perfume.


Retail from HK$380 to HK$790, this Repetto fragrance is exclusively available in 3 sizes (30ML, 50ML and 80ML) at Lane Crawford ifc mallLane Crawford Times Square, Lane Crawford Canton Road.
