CHIC CHAT with Peter Cheung
What’s your definition of luxury?
It’s more than what meets the eye – craftsmanship, quality and bespoke [services].
How are luxury brands changing the way of communication?
There’s a lot more story-telling than savoir faire.
What motivated you to start your own consultancy firm?
It’s led by a personal evaluation of my 20-year career in the luxury segment.
How’s business going so far?
My former employer, Van Cleef & Arpels, has been very supportive and is one of my first clients.
