 Celebrating its 160th anniversary this year, Lane Crawford Hong Kong is proud to launch Heritage 160 this Autumn/Winter 2010.  Founded in 1850 by Thomas Ash Lane and Ninian Crawford, Lane Crawford has evolved to become a leading luxury specialty store offering a wide selection of international brands.  To honour Lane Crawford’s rich history and unique past, as well as its strong relationships with top brands, designers and talents from around the world, Heritage 160 features a series of programmes and events this Autumn/Winter, culminating into the largest celebration of the year.

 

 

Focused on introducing Hong Kong to the best and most innovative in fashion, style and design from around the world, Lane Crawford has invited a group of creatives to ‘curate’ exclusive items in celebration of our anniversary.  From one-of-a-kind customised trenches and art-inspired Ming Dynasty chairs to limited edition designer footwear and an exclusive capsule collection from the best new generation and contemporary designers.

 

To share these special limited edition and one-of-a-kind pieces, they will be showcased at an exclusive exhibition at Lane Crawford’s ifc mall flagship store in September 2010.  The comprehensive project will incorporate a new multi-media platform including an interactive, world-contributed microsite, as well as an auction with proceeds benefiting UNICEF, a special project created to bring education to more than 30,000 children in over 150 villages across western China.
