HONG KONG — Italian lingerie label La Perla is facing eviction and further legal action over unpaid rent on its Asian flagship in Hong Kong, with its landlord seeking upward of 5.1 million Hong Kong dollars.
The dispute came to light from a writ filed to a Hong Kong court on Thursday by Century Creations Ltd., the landlord of the premises at 22-24 Russell Street in Causeway Bay, against La Perla Far East Ltd. and its financial guarantor S.M.S. Finance SA —and despite the brand being given a rent reduction of more than 30 percent last year.
