Travel Book Hawaii Reception
Fashion powerhouse Louis Vuitton set its eyes on Hawai‘i for the next location in their exclusive Travel Book series, celebrating the finished product with a book premiere at Ala Moana Center’s Louis Vuitton store in May. Croatian artist Esad Ribic,´ who Louis Vuitton specifically scouted for Travel Book Hawaii, spent the evening talking with guests about the 100+ exclusive drawings and paintings he created for the project in addition to signing autographs for the travel tome. Invited guests were greeted with hors d’oeuvres and drinks while browsing the event’s silent auction—which benefitted Rehabilitation Hospital of the Pacific—and admiring Ribic´ intricate island-meets-city Realist art.
