This time Laure Heriard Dubreuil from The Webster takes us in 24h through Hong Kong

Following the first part, 24 hours in Shanghai, here come the recommendations for a further 24 exciting hours – this time in Hong Kong. As a hub and pivotal point for onward flights to sunnier climes, it’s an
extremely valuable guidebook, so to say. Especially on the way back home, a stop at the Lane Crawford department store is highly recommended. On the topic of its new collaboration with Miami-based store The Webster, Lane Crawford President Andrew Keith says, “The Lane Crawford customer is constantly looking for newness so we are very excited to collaborate with The Webster to create a unique experience for Hong Kong and China. We’ll be recreating the dynamic energy of South Beach in a specially designed Miami-inspired pop-up in store and online, where customers will also be able to discover an edit of
worldwide exclusive products.” Laure Heriard Dubreuil, the store’s CEO and founder, shares with us here all of her favorite spots in Hong Kong and lets us in on where she stopped during her visit.
