A collection of versatile separates constructed using the finest cloths. This is flexible luxury; garments that can be worn with their counterpart as a suit or separately with jeans, chinos, trainers or complimentary pieces from the collection.

Sally Sohn – Jewelleries of Inspirations


Growing up in Seoul, jewelry designer Sally Sohn cultivated her love for antiques and rare jewelry while traveling abroad to extraordinary auction houses around the world. She received formal training and degrees studying gemology at the prestigious GIA (Gemology Institute of America). It was there that Sally realized her passion for jewelry design.




Launching her own collection in 2003 with her iconic vintage pocket watch refurbished with exquisite jewels, Sally Sohn’s inspiration was essentially to create fine jewelry that she would wear personally.  As a designer, she translates the emotions that her inspirations stir, and wants to share it with others who appreciate the same ideas but channel their emotions through a different medium.  Edgy and bold, there are stories behind each piece which become very personal to the wearer, and becomes the one-of-a-kind piece to one person that connects to a memory or loved one, or simply bring high spirits and help one feel empowered.





Retailed between HK$2,700 to 332,000, Sally Sohn’s jewelry collections are exclusively available at Lane Crawford ifc mall and Lane Crawford Canton Road.
