Lane Crawford’s secret stash!


Far away from the chic interior of their IFC branch and the rotating shoe installation of Pacific Place, there exists another Lane Crawford.

Tucked away in sleepy Ap Lei Chau you’ll find a less flashy and more subdued place called the Lane Crawford Warehouse. Award winning interior design it’s not, but the Lane Crawford warehouse offers something else – a chance to find major additions to your wardrobe at major discounts!

We’re not talking items that have “last season” stamped all over them, but classic pieces by premium designers both big and small. I was surprised to see very unique items trickle down from the fashionable main stores. Perhaps this is where the masterpieces with the extra decimals go when their stock is not fully sold.

Posted against the wall in various places is a color-coded guide to additional discounts. Do not miss this. Depending on a small circular sticker, you can take an extra percentage off the current price written on the tag. Without these discounts, the prices may still seem high.

Checking a few items that initially featured astronomical prices, they were knocked down to reasonable and affordable levels. The range of sizes and variety was very good when I visited.

Even a rack of jeans (that should fly off the shelves,) featured premium designers and included normal sizes.

There’s a full range of both casual and formal wear, in addition to accessories. The men’s section is particularly good.

The warehouse takes up nearly half the twenty-fifth floor of the large former industrial building. In addition to the Lane Crawford warehouse, Horizon Plaza shopping center also contains outlets by Joyce (21/F,) Giorgio Armani (22/F,) Bluebell (that includes Paul Smith, Blumarine, and Moschino) (22/F,) and Max Mara (27/F).

Getting there is easier than you’d think!

From Central, take the number 90 bus from Exchange Square Bus Station (street level, next to IFC,) or number 91 from the Central Ferry Piers, to Ap Lei Chau Estate Bus Terminus. From there, Horizon Plaza operates a convenient shuttle that goes back and forth every ten to thirty minutes, depending on the time and day of the week. Taking a taxi is an even easier option. If you choose to drive, parking is cheap at $15 HKD per hour.

    Thanks for the intel. I actually took a cab all the way out there once. Lol

    From central, which central do you mean? My HKG geography is quite bad it seems..

    “Depending on a small circular sticker, you can take an extra percentage off the current price written on the tag. Without these discounts, the prices may still seem high.” You mean there is already a preselected discount on the clothing or may we still ask for more at the service count?

    Seems a very very nice place to do some good quality shopping, thanks!

    Central is one of Hong Kong Island’s main neighborhoods. It’s a business district, as well as a major shopping area. The two starting points to take the bus to Ap Lei Chau are in Central (both are close to the IFC complex, which is a shopping center, transportation hub, and office tower.)

    The price tags on the items are already discounted. PLUS, if they have a sticker on them, you can take an additional percentage off of that price. So, when you check out, it should also reflect that sticker-based discount.

    Usually I stay in Yuen Long for most of the time, but I will certainly check this shop.

    I have a question.. does the LC warehouse sell Tees? I’m a huge fan of the tees that they have but always feel like they’re waaaaaay overpriced so if the warehouse has tees i’ll definitely go check it out. Great site by the way.

  9. Administrator June 18, 2009 at 8:35 pm #

    Absolutely! There was a large rack with very cool T shirts by an assortment of top designers. I made a mental note of that during my visit.

    So I finally made it to your post!
    I actually took my driving classes at the driving center opposite the ALC building, so I’m used to the 592 bus rides hehe
    Again, great input, thanks for sharing!

    if i take bus from Tsim sha Tsui, where should wait and what is the number of the bus? thanks

  12. Administrator June 25, 2009 at 12:43 pm #

    It would be easy to take Star Ferry from Tsim Sha Tsui to Central to catch either bus mentioned above. I think those will bring you the closest. Otherwise I believe you will need to transfer to a different bus in Aberdeen.

    If I take a cab there from central. How much will it be?

  21. Administrator April 10, 2010 at 4:47 pm #

    Hi Eileen,

    I’d say it would be between $60 to $80 HKD.

  22. Anna July 25, 2010 at 12:01 pm #


    Im lookig for some wedding shoes would you say it would be worth a trip to have a look?


  23. Maggie January 31, 2011 at 3:20 pm #

    Hey! In Tsim Sha Tsui and was thinking of making the trek out there! How reasonable are the prices in the Lane Crawford shop? Good range of shoes as well? Can’t wait to scope it out thanks so much for the post!

  25. janet May 21, 2011 at 9:31 pm #

    do they have party dresses? graduation dresses?

  26. Administrator May 22, 2011 at 12:30 am #

    Hi Janet, I haven’t been there in 6 months, so I don’t know for certain. It’s worth a trip to take a look as there are other ‘outlets’ as well in the same building.

  27. Mona July 18, 2011 at 11:41 am #

    how far is ap lei chau from centra? how many minutes will it take to get there if i take the bus? thanks!

  30. Administrator July 17, 2012 at 5:18 am #

    Ap Lei Chau is about 20 minutes away from Central, depending on what type of transportation you take. The building, Horizon Plaza, with all of the outlets, is away from the main residential part of Ap Lei Chau, so it’s more convenient to just take a taxi.

  31. Zeno July 22, 2012 at 10:50 pm #

    Do any of the mentioned outlets or warehouse carry the brand–Moncler….I really LOVE their down jackets but their price is just too hopeless for me……Joyce or Lane Crawford warehouse would be my last hope…LOL

  32. Sibongile November 17, 2012 at 5:42 pm #

    Hi there,I’m visiting hongkong for the first time beginning jan 2013.Im crazy about top designer brands.
    Do they stock authentic Christian Louboutins,Jimmy Choo, Manolo Blanic,Chistrian Dior,Louis Vuitton bags and shoes in Horizontal Mall? Ill be staying in Cosmopolitan Hotel is is closeby? Is the a place where I can also get designer sunglasses at a discount?please recommend other places to visit that would be of interest to a fashion freak.when it come to clothes I prefer buying not so expensive brands like Zarra and Mango,do they have shops in hongkong

  33. Administrator November 21, 2012 at 5:54 pm #

    Yes! You’ll be happy exploring Hong Kong, which some have compared to “one big shopping mall”. Hong Kong boasts one of the world’s best selections of high-end fashion brands. Finding things at a discount may not be easy though. H.K. does have sample stores and other outlets, but they take some time to sift through.

    The city is also home to H&M, Forever 21, Mango, Zara, UNIQLO etc. if you’re looking for something a little less expensive. Have fun! :)

    Can’t wait to visit HK in Jan! Thanks for the Fab tip!
