For the first time, the Lane Crawford Joyce Group (Asia's leading luxury fashion retail Group) will house its four subsidiary companies (department store, fashion boutiques, leather goods and accessories, retail / brand management) under one roof creating their new, impressive headquarters in Hong Kong.
The space, designed by the in-house team, fills seven floors, 25,000 sq ft per floor and is home to almost 900 employees. Some immediate notable design features for the new HQ, and Group, include:
- Dries Van Noten artwork
- Nicola Formichetti objects
- Specially commissioned Piet Hein Eek table
- Artists Mike Stilkey and Charles Munka designed pieces
- Latest campaigns shot by Nick Knight and Mert & Marcus
- Original French Thonet chairs and Singer stools
- One off visual merchandise from in-store brands such as Juicy Couture and Aveda
- Gruffalo sculpture
There are countless antiques and vintage items - most tell an East meets West story - for instance, an antique lacquered black Chinese boardroom table with modern leather boardroom chairs from Paris.
It was this Group that first introduced Salvatore Ferragamo, Gucci, Prada and Cartier to China 20 years ago. They now represent 3.1 Phillip Lim, Marc Jacobs, DKNY, Paul Smith and more within the region, and as a Group operate in over 1m sq ft of retail space. Sir Philip Green has also just announced his first Topshop will open in Hong Kong next year in partnership with Lane Crawford.
Lane Crawford's impressive Home department is known for stocking established design brands for Asia, including Alessi, Tom Dixon, Jonathan Adler, Lalique, Missoni Home, and Piet Hein Eek.
