EVENT Chloe Store Opening Cocktail Party
WHERE Prince’s Building, Central
Happenings: The French fashion house flew in its president Geoffroy de la Bourdonnaye and creative director Clare Waight Keller from Paris to celebrate the opening of its fifth and largest shop in the city. Model Jocelyn Luko sported a cut-out "violin" dress - an iconic design from the brand's archive reinterpreted to celebrate its 60th anniversary this year. Celebrity guests trotted across the store for a treasure hunt for candles and fragrance.
Former TV anchor Sammie Yu Sze-man, in high heels and high spirits - her husband Ronald Cheng just won the best supporting actor at Hong Kong Film Awards - manoeuvred up and down the stairwell for the game. The treasure hunt was also held in Chloe's flagship store in Rue Saint-Honore, Paris. The fashion pack moved on to a gala dinner at Sevva after the store opening.
Quite a creative way to distribute goodie bags but seriously, the treasure hunt would have been much more fun if there weren't so many people.
CHIC CHAT with Clare Waight Keller
How are you enjoying your stay in Hong Kong?
The weather hasn't been so forgiving but I love the city. There's a nice vibe.
Who do you have in mind as a Chloe girl?
A girl who wears a lot of Chloe, obviously. And also, she wears fashion with an attitude. I'm happy to see a lot of them here tonight.
Where do you see yourself in the next five years?
I enjoy very much the job I have right now and I wish to stay where I am.
