Although it boasted a swanky do last Friday at retail developer Taubman's office, it seemed odd that MasterCard Luxury Week didn't finish with a closing night fete on Saturday. Maybe they just figured they'd let someone else's event be the unofficial closing party: I.T clothing group's 20th anniversary bash at the newly opened W Hotel. Numerous social butterflies still clutching their Luxury Week goodies bag were in the queue at the West Kowloon venue. And it was a long queue: as the maiden event in the new space, no doubt everyone wanted to have a look. Among those getting a first peek were I.T chairman Sham Kar-wai (left) and Japanese founder and boss of street-wear label A Bathing Ape, Tomoaki 'Nigo' Nagao (right). Once inside, there was another wait to enter the lifts to the seventh floor ballroom. Luckily, the W's marketing director Matthew Jung - yes, the just-retired local basketball veteran from team Winling - was around to point us to another elevator around the corner. Apparently, more than 1,500 RSVPs were received, but it seems even more than that were trying to get into the ballroom. 'They're going to trash the place,' Jung ominously kidded. Indeed, champagne was spilled on the new carpet, glasses broke on the newly polished floor and people were smoking where they weren't supposed to be. We hate to think what new fixtures were used to stub lit butts. Meanwhile, a human beatbox named Killa Kela was impressing the crowd, and a load of people were uncomfortably packed into the VIP section simply because they felt self-important. Sum up: ridiculous and priceless.
