EX­OTIC EL­E­GANCE

Rose Anne de Pam­pelonne col­lab­o­rates with megabrand Louis Vuit­ton for the launch of an ex­cit­ing new col­lec­tion

Philippine Tatler - - CONCIERGE -

ak­ing to heart Louis Vuit­ton’s em­pha­sis on el­e­gance and mas­ter­ful crafts­man­ship, renowned in­te­rior de­signer Rose Anne de Pam­pelonne adds her eclec­tic aes­thetic into the mix for the launch of the mai­son’s lat­est col­lec­tion, Ex­o­tique, at a unique ex­hi­bi­tion held from 22 to 30 Septem­ber.

To match the col­lec­tion’s ex­otic, ad­ven­tur­ous na­ture, de Pam­pelonne turned Sin­ga­pore’s At­bara House into a home for the the mod­ern Louis Vuit­ton woman.

De Pam­pelonne set up fi ve rooms as a liv­ing room, a vis­i­tors’ lounge, a show­place for ar­ti­sanal wares, as well as sep­a­rate uni­verses for men and women in or­der to show off items from the new col­lec­tion in the best pos­si­ble man­ner.

Ex­o­tique by Louis Vuit­ton fea­tures exquisitely crafted items rang­ing from bags to foun­tain pens made with ex­otic leathers, such as croc­o­dile and os­trich. With ad­vanced tech­niques and in­ter­est­ing ef­fects, the mai­son’s ar­ti­sans have cre­ated prod­ucts that are a tes­ta­ment to the mai­son’s her­itage.

An­other Filipino re­cently made global style news as Mark “Jappy” Gon­za­les was in­ducted into the pres­ti­gious Busi­ness of Fash­ion (BOF) 500, a com­pen­dium of peo­ple shap­ing the in­ter­na­tional fash­ion in­dus­try. He joins lu­mi­nar­ies Tory Burch, Uniqlo’s Tadashi Yanai, supermodel Kate Moss, and Gucci’s Alessan­dro Michele in the list.

In his BOF pro­file, Gon­za­les is cred­ited for bring­ing Ba­len­ci­aga, Lan­vin, and Comme des Garçons to the Philip­pines by way of a chain of multi-brand stores launched in 1995.

A gala was held in New York for the re­cent in­ductees and Gon­za­les held an event at his store in Rock­well last month to toast this ma­jor mile­stone in his ca­reer.
