Famous fashion designers of the LVMH group turned up in full force at the recent unveiling of Foundation Louis Vuitton in Paris’ Bois de Boulogne. Among those who attended were JW Anderson, Nicolas Ghesquière, Karl Lagerfeld, Phoebe Philo, Raf Simons and Riccardo Tisci. But the spotlight shone on the biggest star of the evening — French president François Hollande — who inaugurated the opening of this new space dedicated to contemporary art. Flanked by another president (of the LVMH group) Bernard Arnault and Frank Gehry, the architect responsible for this modernist building, the French head of state also met with artists exhibiting at the space, renowned opera singer Nathalie Dessay, and cellist Henri Demarquette who performed Sergei Rachmaninov’s Vocalise at the opening.
Expect the unexpected — and this is exactly what sets Hermés apart from other brands. The French house has a knack for injecting artisanal innovation to continually raise the bar for timeless classics, and this rare talent was on full display at the recent horological installation entitled “Of Mastery and Time”. Conceived by Austrian designer Robert Stadler, the installation ingeniously puts a spin on day and night while showcasing some of the French watchmaker’s most exceptional timepieces — the Arceau Millefiori, a collectible that taps on the glassmaking expertise of Les Cristalleries Royales de Saint-Louis to create a dial made entirely out of vividly coloured flowers; the Arceau Pocket Chevaux sauvages, exemplary of the art of wheel engraving on crystal; and the trio of Arceau Cheval d’Orient which highlights the art of French lacquer.
It was lights, camera, action as Ion Orchard turned five. The atrium of the mall transformed into a red-carpet-worthy venue as personalities like George Young, Yvette King and Liv Ko made an appearance with 100 special guests who were wowed by a fashion show by Zuhair Murad, Boss by Hugo Boss, Chaumet and Omega, as well as dazzling performances by American musician Chris Daughtry and Taiwanese songbird Elva Hsiao. The highlight of the evening was a charity auction of a special painting put together by the Singapore Association for Mental Health, Community Chest-supported Minds Towner Garden School, Daughtry and Hsiao. The painting went to Matilda Koh, an Ion Orchard Privi member and the proceeds of $5,000 benefited the Community Chest.
