This upcoming September 2011 will bring extra excitement to Hong Kong, as Van Cleef & Arpels will open their third boutique in this city. This inauguration is an important step for the maison which in the past has sought inspiration in Asian culture, for example, to mention an early collection, their Chapeau Chinois jewellery set from the 1931 Exposition Colonial. Asian lands have a wealth of legends, poetry and beauty. Van Cleef & Arpels evidently share the typically Chinese celebration of nature's vital force, as expressed by their fascination with celestial and aquatic creatures, and even magical fairies.
The new Hong Kong boutique exudes refinement and exclusivity. It is located at 10 Charter Road, Central, in Prince's Building. It was designed by Patrick Jouin and Sanjit Manku with a unique mission: to associate exceptional beauty and balance by revealing the connections between Van Cleef & Arpels and the perception of modernity of the Chinese civilization. When in Hong Kong, don't miss the chance to step in to this boutique. You will experience absolute luxury and enjoy a metaphorical excursion into a sea of peace and enchantment.
