Celebrate Lane Crawford’s 170th Anniversary in style with these exclusive capsule collections

An integral thread in Hong Kong’s history of fashion is none other than beloved luxury department store, Lane Crawford, which celebrates its immense 170th anniversary this October.

From its beginnings as a versatile retailer to its status as a trend-setting powerhouse, Lane Crawford has led the way for the potential of luxury Asian fashion and its incredibly talented designers. With that in mind, this year for its monumental anniversary, Lane Crawford has enlisted a roster of the finest designers for a series of globally exclusive, world-first capsule collections.

These are the capsule collections to note for ‘Creating Stories since 1850’ campaign:

Sacai’s Chitose Abe has undeniably influenced the perception of Asian fashion since breaking into the scene. Her frequent partnership with Lane Crawford has resulted in the brand’s rising as a household name in Hong Kong. Naturally, it made sense for the two to collaborate for this special occasion, resulting in a phenomenal limited edition ceramics collection with Asian talent Li Lihong. Together, 20 sets of Coca Cola bottles have been hand painted with Sacai’s latest prints, for a sculpture set that is the ultimate collector’s item for both art and fashion aficionados alike.

The collection will feature 18 beautifully styles from her archives now upcycled with materials including cashmere and leather, using techniques such as tie-dye and hand embroidery.
