Miriam de Riu & david gouy­gou

Hong Kong Tatler - - In Bloom -

As the wife of An­tonello De Riu, the Con­sul Gen­eral of Italy in Hong Kong, Miriam De Riu is used to mak­ing friends wher­ever she goes. How­ever, watch­ing her and David Gouy­gou in­ter­act, one would think they’ve been friends for years. In fact, David, the co-founder and di­rec­tor of Bruneblonde, was one of Miriam’s first friends af­ter she ar­rived in Hong Kong less than two years ago. “I ar­rived here [in Hong Kong] one night and the next day I wanted to get my hair done,” she says in her strong Ital­ian ac­cent. “And it was love at first sight.” David ex­plains that their bond goes be­yond the sa­lon. “She’s a very good friend. We have din­ners to­gether, we go danc­ing—it’s al­ways fun when we’re to­gether!” Al­though Miriam’s hair hasn’t changed much since her first visit, David ex­plains, “The length is the same; we just light­ened the colour a bit.” It seems that few days can go by without Miriam pay­ing a visit, ei­ther. She says, “I don’t own sham­poo at home be­cause I come here all the time!”
