Luck Be a Lady
What? Marking the 50th anniversary of Van Cleef & Arpels’ Alhambra collection, the famed jewellery house hosted a cocktail reception and dinner on the eve of Typhoon Mangkhut. The four-leaf-clover motif brought the brand luck indeed as neither gust of wind nor drop of rain ravished the venue, while Hong Kong’s finest turned up in all their dress-code ’70s finery. Pop ups: The pop-up by the Harbourfront was a gorgeous two-storey house overlooking a garden with fountains in the shape of four-leaf clovers. The sumptuous dinner, by Chef Hélène Darroze, was exquisite. Music for the night was provided by the dynamic duo Peter von Poehl and Marie Modiano.
