Continuing the craft theme into accessories, TREE includes a new variety of ceramics handmade in Bali by Australian ceramicist and designer Fliss Dodd, using a Hong Kong twist: the variety of mugs, bowls and storage containers features names of districts – from Kennedy Town and Victoria Harbour to Shek O and Mong Kok – loosely handwritten and wrapped around every piece.
Still inside the patriotic spirit, put in a new cushion in G.O.D.’s signature print, the Letterbox. Each one distinctly painted, this vintage-inspired textile rekindles memories from the old letterboxes that were scattered throughout hallways in older Hong Kong buildings.
Tap the upcycling trend with a signature piece including the Billchair from Self., the British design studio renowned for its high-end, exquisitely restored and redesigned table Hong Kong.

Its simple curves and lines make it the classic,” says Tracy Kwan, director of lifestyle at Lane Crawford.
