The Uma Wang capsule collection


Uma Wang, one of China’s buzziest designers of the moment, has completed an eight-piece exclusive capsule collection for Lane Crawford.

The Hong Kong-based retailer said Wang tapped “deep into her Chinese heritage to find inspiration in the bold indigo color that characterizes the clothes worn by Chinese tribes” to turn out eight styles.

Pieces include a poplin dress with a gathered waist, a patchwork linen-silk dress and a floral print silk blend coat. Prices range from 4,500 Hong Kong dollars, or $577, to 10, 200 Hong Kong dollars, or $1,308. The collection will be available around Feb. 24 at Lane Crawford’s Hong Kong IFC and Shanghai Times Square locations as well as on the retailer’s Web site.

“Fabric is everything to me,” said Wang. “When I discover a fabric, I can immediately envisage the shape of the dress in it. It’s the easiest way to transform my passion and creativity into something unique and novel.”
