Louis Vuit­ton hosted a pri­vate din­ner at Pierre to cel­e­brate the open­ing of its trav­el­ling Time Cap­sule ex­hi­bi­tion

The lights of the Hong Kong sky­line pro­vided a glit­ter­ing back­drop for a pri­vate din­ner hosted by Louis Vuit­ton at Pierre to cel­e­brate the open­ing of the French brand’s re­mark­able Time Cap­sule ex­hi­bi­tion. LV chose Hong Kong as the first stop for its ex­hi­bi­tion, which charts the French la­bel’s his­tory, be­cause it co­in­cides with the ar­rival of two his­toric land­marks for the city it­self—the 20th an­niver­sary of the Hong Kong han­dover and the 25th an­niver­sary of the Le French May arts fes­ti­val. Vis­i­tors to the ex­hi­bi­tion will see some of the most valu­able pieces from the Louis Vuit­ton ar­chive, items that demon­strate the in­no­va­tive and lux­u­ri­ous ap­proach to de­sign taken by the brand since its found­ing in 1854. “We wanted to show how ev­ery­thing that we’re do­ing to­day has an ori­gin, how we’re in­flu­enced by our past,” Michael Burke, Louis Vuit­ton’s CEO and chair­man, ex­plained. “It’s im­por­tant to jux­ta­pose moder­nity with the past; they don’t fight with each other, as each needs the other to ex­ist.” To cel­e­brate the ar­rival of the ex­hi­bi­tion, Louis Vuit­ton hosted an in­vi­ta­tion-only cock­tail party fol­lowed by a pri­vate din­ner, which were at­tended by a stel­lar col­lec­tion of friends, fash­ion­istas and VIPS. A lively af­ter-party took place at Sevva.
