Sometimes the simplest things can have a profound impact on the senses, the body and the mind. Immersion into an all-white room can be almost transcendental. In such a space one can appreciate the subtle nuances of white from the reflective chill of Arctic white to the soft allure of ivory and the crisp appeal of a matt white glaze on a sculpted pot.


In our Pacific Place home store, we’ve been weighing up the beauty of white and in the spirit of discovery; we have created an all-white room devoted to objects, linens and furniture. Think of it as a fresh starting point, a blank canvas for lifestyle ideas. White proves itself far from predictable. It hints at perfection, otherness and uniqueness giving designers ample space to explore texture, silhouette and form.

 

 

Milky glazed dinnerware from Astier de Villatte looks wondrous; Jonathan Adler’s Dora Maar portrait vase mystical while Seletti’s white mice that double as lamps inject humour and a touch of the surreal. So you see, this powerful shade does not need to be cold or clinical and when used correctly, makes for a bold and beautiful finish. Our top tip? Choose furniture and soft furnishings carefully - go for pieces that will add dimension through textures and layers.


Now is the time to consider building one’s own white sanctuary. Worth contemplating, of that we can be sure.

From the streetwear sensibilities that continues to pervade fashion today to the newest must-have essentials, we round up the key looks that you need to know for the season ahead.

 



NEW STREET ORDER
Streetwear is ruling the style waves right now as brands across the spectrum convert skate and grunge staples into items of high desire. Subversive graphics, distressed and love worn finishes, and bold graphic logos entertain the rebel in everyone.

 

 


BOMB’S AWAY

If there is one must-have wardrobe piece that is not going away, it’s the bomber jacket. Beloved for its versatility and ability to work both dressed up and down, this season it evolves from ultra-padded styles to more lightweight trans-seasonal iterations.



PEAK PERFORMANCE
With an eye firmly on real needs, and real climatic conditions - brands are excelling in creating elevated utility wear. Waterproof technical fabrics, transformative zip on and off sleeves and saturated colourways give these multi functioning pieces the edge. They are made to be layered and easily combined with denim or suiting.






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, slogan tees are an exercise in self-messaging, so choose yours with intent.

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.

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.
