Deakin & Francis has expanded into the Asian market with its products now available in Hong Kong and Chinese department store group, Lane Crawford, as well as on the firm’s website.
The move comes after Deakin & Francis visited Hong Kong as part of the UKTI Great Weeks trade mission, where managing director James Deakin met with the menswear buying team from Lane Crawford.
Lane Crawford will sell the Deakin & Francis vitreous enamel and 3D cufflinks, as well as other accessories including 18ct white gold moveable shark cufflinks and a limited edition ebony walking cane with a moving silver skull top set with ruby eyes.
Deakin said: “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.”
Founded in 1850, Lane Crawford has the largest selection of luxury brands in Greater China, with a focus on the new and exclusive.
