For this VIP artistic event, we organized a total bespoke experience in a wonderful hidden jewel, a private villa, located in the Mid levels with a fantastic view and an outstanding space where we welcomed guests for the closing ceremony of Le French May, the major cultural festival of Hong Kong. With our partner Art de Vivre Agency we came up with creative solutions, art performances, contemporary art and culinary experiences to surprise HK society. Among the artistic activities we brought Cantonese Opera which surprised many guests as they couldn’t believe it was happening right in front of them. We also had Asian fan dancers, body painting and a contemporary art exhibition. The result was very simple: everyone got embraced in a wonderful night of delights… and a memorable souvenir.

J Plus Hotel by Yoo approached us this season with a wonderful idea: offer to its clients a very unique and creative Valentine Day gift including a customized sketch of a couple. We thought this artistic gift would be perfect for the season, that’s why we decided to go for these bespoke experiences. Therefore, we imagined a romantic situation featuring two lovers and a vintage French red bike. The sketch comes with candles, balloons décor, LED lighting displaying a personalized love message, French gourmet chocolate bonbons from Jean- Paul Hevin and Moet & Chandon rose. A really nice way to spend V-Day! A nice artistic solution with a frame!

Have you ever seen a 3D video art created with Chinese ink? The result by acclaimed Victor Wong is so impressive that we literally feel into a Chinese ink painting. This video, a must watch here, has been commissioned by Hong Kong Jockey Club. Be amazed as Xu Beihong’s horses come alive in 3D! Leveraging state-of-the-art multimedia technology to create traditional Chinese ink artistry, the resultant 60-second commercial conveys the vibrancy of the Chinese New Year with the energy of the horses. Victor Wong is not only a talented video artist but also a multi awards celebrated man for his unlimited capacity of creation from movies to simple art.
It’s authentic, British and sophisticated. Just as simple as a Cologne reaching the Perfume standard. The stories of the fragrances are all fascinating. Thus, Iris Prima is transporting us into the English National Ballet, a world of theatre and dance with a citrus freshness mimicking the graceful flight of the prima ballerina as she leaps into the spotlight. But my favorite is Endymion, inspired by tales from Greek mythology. Endymion was the most handsome son of Zeus and was placed into perpetual slumber by the Goddess of the Moon so that she alone could gaze upon him. Endymion is supposed to be a man’s fragrance but at Penhaligon’s all fragrances can be used both by women and men.
The Hong Kong IFC boutique is a must see: all the furnishing are antiques imported directly from Britain. Even the floor, the fire place and the walls have been built using timeworn materials imported from England. A truly unexpected treasure trove full of beauty.
Definitely worth a visit!
