There was a collective squee in Geek Central when we heard that Lane Crawford and uber cool US fashion retailer Opening Ceremony are partnering together and that starting next week, if you venture into ifc’s Lane Crawford, you will see a conceptual retail extension of Opening Ceremony for the first time in Hong Kong. While we can natter on about the awesome capsule collection between the two brands that comprises of Alexander Wang striped T-shirts, Band of Outsiders’ ties, dresses by Carven and Suno, plus Pamela Love skull necklaces, we figured it would be more fun to talk to co-founder Carol Lim about some little known facts of hers, such as her favourite iPhone app, which celebrity she’d love to trade places with and her worst nightmare.
