Following this initial meeting, the British brand secured the luxury department store as a stockist for its range of vitreous enamel and 3D cufflinks, as well as other fine accessories, including a limited edition ebony walking cane with a moving skull top.

Founded in 1850, Lane Crawford has the largest selection of luxury brands in Greater China, with a focus on the new and exclusive.

Deakin, who is also visiting Japan this month with UKTI, is keen to expand the brand’s presence in other areas of Asia. He explained: “The trip to Hong Kong was really successful and to be welcomed into Lane Crawford is a dream. Ask anyone ‘which is the best and most important store in Hong Kong?’ and they will respond ‘Lane Crawford’. It is known for its innovation, unique edit, exemplary and connected commerce, and more importantly, its operation in Greater China.”
