HONG KONG — A year ago Louis Vuitton celebrated its second Maison opening here with a celebrity–studded event that featured a live performance by Kanye West. On Thursday, the French luxury brand took a different approach to partying in Hong Kong with an art opening on a grand scale.
Bernard Arnault, chairman and chief executive of LVMH Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton, welcomed some 700 guests to the Hong Kong Museum of Art, where the company has installed an exhibition of contemporary pieces called “Louis Vuitton: A Passion for Creation.” The show features works by artists with whom the brand has collaborated, as well as sketches and models of its new museum in Paris, and works by artists from Hong Kong and China.

"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
