BYT is an award-winning luxury upcycled fashion brand that rescues surplus luxury materials and transforms them into beautiful enduring designer pieces using socially responsible business practices.  Designed by an emerging design duo, Kévin Germanier and Victor Chu, the inaugural BYT ‘Trailblazer Trio’ collection features a timeless with a twist interpretation of the traditional blazer, trench and biker jacket with modern cut-out back details that were partly inspired by a discarded jacket found years ago from a clothing bin that was rescued through a creative DIY process.  The seven piece collection is created using upcycled luxury fabrics in classic colours of blacks, ivories, blues, houndstooths and pinstripes in an array of light-weight wool, cady crepe, and denim. BYT collaborates with and donates 10% of profits to sister charity Redress, an environmental NGO working to reduce waste in the fashion industry.

The EcoChic Design Award is a sustainable fashion design competition organised by Redress inspiring emerging fashion designers and students to create mainstream clothing with minimal textile waste. Designers are educated with the theory and techniques to enable them to create sustainable clothing via zero-waste, upcycling and reconstruction. The competition puts emerging sustainable design talent in the spotlight, creating a platform for the next generation of designers to cut waste out of fashion.

 

“As part of Lane Crawford’s commitment to supporting young emerging talent, we are pleased to support the EcoChic Design Award and its cause of promoting sustainability in fashion with the next generation of designers,” said Joanna Gunn, Chief Brand Officer of Lane Crawford, and one of the Competition’s judges.

 

British designer Kate Morris won the first prize, who demonstrated three design techniques of the future - zero-waste, upcycling and reconstruction - mixing handcraft and technology to create a bright and playful knitwear collection. 

 

“I believe the fashion industry has reached a critical point and I want to be part of the change – designing sustainable items of beauty for the masses is my dream and I am excited about winning this competition as it will me enable to contribute to a better future,” said Morris.

Lane Crawford, Asia’s iconic luxury department store, presents the highly anticipated capsule collection that won Gabriela Hearst the 2016/17 International Woolmark Prize (IWP), which aims to identify future design stars and showcase new and captivating interpretations of Merino wool through their collections. In addition, Lane Crawford is also featuring the capsule collections from the womenswear winners, TOTON and Faustine Steinmetz of 2016/17 IWP Asia regional final and British Isles respectively.

 

 

“As part of Lane Crawford’s commitment to supporting emerging talent and design innovation, we are proud to be the exclusive retail partner in Greater China to support the prestigious International Woolmark Prize and its winners. I am honoured to be one of the judging panels to choose the final winner among other industry experts in Paris,” said Joanna Gunn, Chief Brand Officer, Lane Crawford. “The technical innovation, high quality craftsmanship and incredible creativity in working with the sustainable Australian Merino wool by Gabriela Hearst, TOTON and Faustine Steinmetz are impressive. We believe that these winning capsule collections will appeal to our customers interested in wool as a natural fibre and premier ingredient in luxury apparel.”


“Placing Merino wool firmly on the world stage, the International Woolmark Prize shines a spotlight on the boundless potential and extraordinary versatility of fashion’s finest fibre. Strengthening our reputation for fostering emerging design talent, the prestigious award connects the decision-makers of the future with today’s leaders in retail and trade like Lane Crawford to ensure the inspiring and ongoing use of wool,” said Stuart McCullough, Managing Director, The Woolmark Company. “In this year, for the first time, the menswear and womenswear finals were held together at a star-studded event at the iconic Palais de Tokyo, Paris. The USA’s Gabriela Hearst was chosen as the womenswear award winner with sleek silhouettes and crisp, tailored lines.”

 

 

Born in Uruguay, Gabriela Hearst, the New York-based designer was praised for her technical innovation and quality craftsmanship. Her womenswear collection, inspired by WW2 Italian journalist, author, and political interviewer Oriana Fallaci, presents sleek silhouettes with updates on trench coats, pleats and an evening dress. “It is an honour not only to be recognised by the industry, but also to be able to work with such an exceptional material,” says Hearst, who spent her childhood growing up on her parents’ sheep farm. “Wool is an amazing fibre with so many inherent qualities that can benefit humans, and it has supported my family for so many generations."

 

 

Gabriela Hearst

 

Founded in 2012, Toton Januar and his business partner Haryo Balitar built TOTON on the foundation of Indonesian heritage, celebrating craftsmanship and re-contextualizing traditions. Their winning design explored the versatility of Australian Merino wool by developing and manipulating the fibre with traditional Indonesian methods to produce exotically embroidered and textured fabrics, as well as a men’s tailoring-inspired look that would suit Southeast Asian climates and support local hand-crafting techniques.

 

TOTON

 

“This is simply unreal,” said Toton Januar after his win. “It’s the first time that Indonesian designers are participating in the International Woolmark Prize, and it means so much to us. We were so excited to explore and manipulate wool with traditional Indonesian craftsmanship, and give greater meaning to ‘people making things for people.” His business partner Haryo Balitar echoed “we want to make sure we support and promote the unique traditions and age-old techniques of our people.”

 

 

Faustine Steinmetz

   

For her winning womenswear outfit, Faustine worked with the raw Merino wool fibre, carding and dyeing it in different shades of indigo before felting it onto a Merino base fabric. “It feels so startling to have won and I’m really happy,” said Faustine Steinmetz, winner of 2016/17 International Woolmark Prize British Isles region. “Wool is the most versatile material and I’m excited to develop this collection for the international final.”

 

 

These IWP capsule collections are available at Lane Crawford ifc mall and Shanghai Times Square, as well as online at LaneCrawford.com.

IN THE PINK OF IT

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.

GLOBAL EXCLUSIVE: FFIXXED STUDIOS

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.
