Floral pop-ups. Caviar blinis. A ribbon-cutting ceremony with Li Bing Bing. And an outdoor patio performance by the one and only CL, fresh from the 2018 Winter Olympics closing ceremony. Here’s your front-row guide to all the revelry celebrating our new Landmark Alexandra store, located in Hong Kong’s bustling Central district.
以英式園藝為主題的期間限定 pop up；魚子醬canapes；李冰冰主持剪綵儀式；剛在2018平昌冬季奧運會閉幕禮獻唱的韓國女歌手CL作戶外表演…位於香港中環最繁華地段的Landmark Alexandra 專門店隆重開幕，箇中盛況直擊介紹。
Landmark Alexandra Party
Actress and singer Li Bing Bing kicked things off on Thursday evening with a special ribbon-cutting ceremony. For one night only, we transformed the store interiors in an ode to decorator David Hicks — the inspiration behind our Spring 2018 collection. We built a special set that took after Hicks’s own English garden, The Grove, complete with maze-like hedges and a grassy octagon-pattern backdrop. And in keeping with the theme, we also installed a special floral pop-up and gave away mini terracotta plants and pink roses to guests, including Tina Leung, Eleanor Lam and Qi Qi , who were treated to crafted cocktails and upbeat tunes by DJ Mad Marj.
Landmark Alexandra 慶祝派對
Landmark Alexandra 專門店開幕盛會於3月8日星期四隆重開幕，當日黃昏品牌於新店舉行開幕酒會，由著名演員兼歌手李冰冰主持剪彩儀式。品牌的2018春夏系列靈感源自英國傳奇室內設計師David Hicks的設計美學，派對當日品牌將新店佈置成David Hicks的英式花園The Grove般模樣，配上迷宮似的樹籬及綠草八角形圖案佈景板。為配合花園主題，現場設有以英式園藝為主題的期間限定 pop up，向嘉賓送上赤褐色陶瓷小盤栽；出席嘉賓包括Tina Leung，Eleanor Lam 和 Qi Qi ，在DJ Mad Marj的音樂節奏中品嚐雞尾酒，沉醉於現場的熱鬧氣氛。
After the party, Maxiana Li, Alison El Azar, Simon Yam, Evelyn Choi and other guests headed over to Sevva for a dinner inspired by some of Tory’s favorite eats, such as butter-baked Boston lobster and buckwheat blinis topped with caviar. And after that? Even more festivities. Everyone stepped out onto the wrap-around terrace — which offers some of the best panoramic views of Hong Kong — for a performance by CL. Not only is the Seoul native a major star is Asia, but she’s been making waves Stateside, too: She recently headlined the closing ceremony for the Pyeongchang Olympics (and is set to co-star in Mile 22, alongside Mark Wahlberg and John Malkovich, later this year). We closed out the night with bite-sized eats that married East with West — grilled cheese sandwiches and kung-pow prawns, among them — and Tory’s favorite libation, the Southside.
酒會結束後，一眾嘉賓包括Maxiana Li, Alison El Azar, Simon Yam 和 Evelyn Choi移玉步至置地太子Sevva餐廳出席晚宴，菜色靈感源自Tory最愛的美食佳餚，例如牛油焗波士頓龍蝦、蕎麥餅配魚子醬等。晚宴後大家步出飽覽中環鬧市景觀的陽台，欣賞韓國著名女歌手CL現場表演。來自首爾的CL不但紅遍亞洲，加上剛在平昌冬季奧運會閉幕禮獻唱，今年稍後更加會與紅星Mark Wahlberg 及John Malkovich合演電影《Mile 22》，所以在美國亦被受注目。最後嘉賓品嚐到薈萃東西滋味的小食烤芝士三文治配宮保蝦仁，佐以Tory最愛的Southside雞尾酒，無不盡興而歸。
