Piaget Couture Precieuse Gala Dinner
To showcase the exquisite Couture Précieuse high jewellery collection, Piaget proudly gathered 120 of their most distinguished VIPs and celebrities, including Piaget Brand Ambassador, Gong Li, at The Peninsula Hong Kong.
For this special occasion, The Peninsula Lobby, a legend since it first opened its doors in 1928, was exceptionally transformed into a one-of-a-kind and magnificently bedecked gala venue, accentuating the dazzling allurement of Piaget’s latest creations.
As guests made their entrance to the cocktail area, they were greeted by an exclusive preview of the Couture Précieuse Collection, served with bubbly champagne and scrumptious canapés.
Entirely developed and crafted in-house, the new collection pays homage to feminine beauty. The collection marks haute joaillerie’s stunning incursion into the world of haute couture, taking inspiration from various couture techniques and materials, such as “Radiant Laces”, “Diamond Embroidery” and “Magnificent Adornments”.
The collection makes ingenious use of gold, diamonds and gems, giving birth to creations that are graphic, gossamer-light and sensuous. After cocktail, guests were then unveiled to an extravagant setting, where the lobby is splendidly made over into an elegant and impressive dining area.
The décor at the venue exuded a blend of modern and classic glamour, complements well with The Peninsula’s remarkable high ceiling, beautifully crafted molding, and neo-classical arches, all oozed a sense of grandeur and magnificence.
Co-hosted by Mr Philippe Léopold-Metzger, CEO of Piaget and Mr Dimitri Gouten, President of Piaget Asia Pacific, the superb culinary dinner was brilliantly designed by The Peninsula chefs. As guests savoured the delicacies, they were treated to a wonderful a cappella performance by a group of four brilliant vocalists, who specially flew in from Australia.
The dulcet melodies performed by them brought the atmosphere of the evening to another level. During the course of the dinner, the aisles between the stylish long tables became a runway, where models clad in sophisticated evening gowns showcased Piaget high jewellery pieces.
Amongst the star-studded list of guests was world acclaimed actress, Gong Li, Piaget’s Brand Ambassador, who graced the gala dinner wearing high jewellery pieces from “A Mythical Journey by Piaget,” an exclusive collection yet to be launched. Other distinguished guests include style icons like actor Godfrey Gao and Joseph Cheng, Ms Ellen Wong, Ms Anne Heung, Ms Sandy Lau, Ms Jenny Tam, Mr Julien Lepeu, Mr Victor Wu, Mr Gordon Lam, Mr & Mrs David & Avisha Harilela and many more.
With the launch of the Couture Précieuse Collection, Piaget continues to push the boundaries of perfection and celebrates the eternal feminine beauty, thanks to the expertise of its artisans and the creative sensitivity of its designers. The brand creates jewellery displaying a level of finishing and refinement epitomising the very pinnacle of Haute Joaillerie.
