There's admittedly a lack of vintage stores in Hong Kong although for those who do covet, I hear there are a few shops in Soho that are absolute gems. If you are going designer vintage, however, choices are limited. That's slowly changing though with the launch of Era (which ShoeGeek will go further in depth about in a later post) and Lane Crawford. The shopping destination also known as fashion porn to us Geeks is jumping onto the vintage bandwagon and will be bringing celebrity stylist Juliana Cairone to their IFC location to showcase their latest collaboration. Juliana is owner and founder of Rare Vintage in New York and has styled stars like Angelina Jolie, Rachel Weisz and America Ferrera.
Rare Vintage only opened a couple years ago but is already making waves in the celebrity circuit with its offering of exclusive and glamorous couture from the twentieth century’s most significant design houses all selected by Juliana herself.
Lane Crawford has collaborated with Juliana to introduce a unique edit of vintage gowns and evening dresses, including designs by Chanel, John Galliano, Givenchy, Yves Saint Laurent, Valentino, Balenciaga, and Emmanuel Ungaro. As part of The New Vintage showcase, unique vintage accessory pieces from the following brands will also be available: Erickson & Beamon, Fenton, Fallon, Fiona Paxton, Giles & Brother, Iosselliani, Janis Savitt, Kenneth Jay Lane, Mawi, Miriam Haskell, Shourouk, Vera Wang and Christopher DeNave.
Juliana will take a limited number of private appointments and offer styling advice to customers on February 6, 2010. Please contact Lane Crawford for further details.
PS the image is just a generic image from their Personal Styling page as oddly enough the press release didn't include any images of Juliana nor the clothes, only the vintage accessories.
