    The biggest distributor of luxury goods in Asia has called on landlords in Hong Kong to help ease the burden of slumping sales caused by six months of civil unrest.

    Bluebell Group, which distributes a huge number of high end brands such as Christian Dior perfumes, Balmain and Anya Hindmarch, has asked shopping mall owners to make major cuts to rents, warning a collapse in tourist spending risks pushing retailers out of business.

    The company's chief executive Ashley Micklewright told the South China Morning Post that sales in some of its shops have plummeted by as much as 60 percent.

    Official figures published this week showed that retail sales saw their biggest ever monthly fall in October, sliding by 24.3%, while the ongoing protests have already pushed the economy into its first recession in a decade.
