EVENT SOPHIE HULME X LANE CRAWFORD COLLECTION LAUNCH COCKTAIL
WHERE LANE CRAWFORD, CENTRAL

HAPPENINGS: Accessories designer Sophie Hulme was in town to celebrate the launch of her collaboration with Lane Crawford. The designer has created a series of styles exclusive to the luxury store. Hulme's iconic tote gets an update with an eye-catching "I heart SH" logo and is now rendered in the season's hottest mini-bag version. Many of the designer's Hong Kong fans turned up to show their support. We spotted Jacqueline Chow, Emma Lauren and Angel Chu sporting the versatile mini tote at the cocktail.

 

OVERHEARD Mini bags are cool but I really appreciate Hulme’s design because my phone fits right in.
