Collaborations like Jason Wu for Target and Marni for H&M have been taking over the news feeds the last few days, and now we’ve got another to add to the mix for our readers in Asia. Taylor Tomasi Hill, the newly-dubbed Artistic Director of Moda Operandi / former Style & Accessories Director of Marie Claire / bona fide street style star, has designed an exclusive capsule collection for Hong Kong-based retailer Lane Crawford.
Set to hit Lane Crawford IFC Mall on January 9, the collection includes an eclectic mix of pieces ranging from a white vintage lace pencil skirt (complete with neon pink slip!) to a pair of purple and pink abstract-print pants (very Erdem). “I am fond of things that don’t necessarily look as they should go together”, says Tomasi Hill. “Something unexpected always adds an element of interest to an outfit.” The 5 pieces revealed thus far are certainly anything but expected, and I can’t wait to see the rest of the collection.
Sadly, I won’t be anywhere near Asia next week and will be missing out on the fun, but will be living vicariously through our readers who are out that way. How about designing a collection for those of us on this side of the world, Taylor?
Great news for those of us outside of Hong Kong who’ve been wanting to shop Taylor Tomasi Hill x Lane Crawford: the full collection is available online at LaneCrawford.com! Priced from $250 for the striped top to $470 for a strapless tuxedo dress, the collection can be delivered right to your door within 3 to 5 days ($30 shipping + tax/duties or free for orders over $1,000 on international orders).
I have my eye on the gorgeous leather-collar lace shirt – it’s the stuff of my sartorial dreams. What about you?
