Collaboration with Lane Crawford & Swarovski
is one of my favorite department stores in Hong Kong. With new shops now open in three of China's largest cities, Shanghai, Chengdu and Beijing, it was an incredible honour to be invited to work with Lane Crawford and Swarovski in celebrating LC's 165th anniversary.
My 'Armor' showpiece celebrates an innovative use of materials and the beauty of craftsmanship: Swarovski crystals are merged into soft textiles and cast giving them a new state of form. The finishing touches are added with lengths of hand-dyed rope and double layered tassels.
Behind the scene:
The opening night in LC store Shanghai was a fruitful event with endless delicious cocktails, live music, meetings with old and new designer friends and press. A brilliant event thanks to the fantastic LC creative team!
Exhibition Duration: 13th Oct. - 20th Oct. 2015
