Cocktail at Tiffany’s
The crown jewel of Louis Vuitton Moët Hennessy (LVMH) welcomed friends of Asian Dragon for an exclusive evening of cocktails and finery to have the first look of the expanded collection of its latest icon – the Tiffany Lock.
Glamour exuded as ladies in their elegant garbs and glimmering jewelry graced the exclusive event. Greeting them was a newly renovated interior with a gorgeous accent wall in Tiffany Blue® featuring an art installation of Jean Schlumberger’s iconic Bird on a Rock.
The gleaming white space that is Tiffany’s local flagship store, reflects the new energy and direction the brand is taking since being acquired by LVMH. Inside the store, warm and inviting energy is apparent aside from the sparkling luxury on display.
Tiffany & Co. signature design pieces from Lock, TiffanyT, and HardWear collections, are exhibited in rounded champagne jewelry cases, enamored guests. Among them is Christina Cobankiat, vice president of Sincere Construction, who delightedly expressed her admiration for Tiffany & Co.’s classic designs saying, “Wear it 10 years from now, and it still looks very timeless.”
Irene Yap loved the Key and Interlocking Circles collections for their direct-to-the-point design. Jewelry dealer Zizi Lee said she treasures her Tiffany wedding ring – an 18k gold band with round, brilliant-cut diamonds.
“Tiffany is not just about the brand but the excellent workmanship and quality,” says Jasmin Sy, and this is evident in each of the stunning diamond pieces on display at its Greenbelt 3 flagship store.
Aside from curated jewelry pieces, guests also enjoyed some beloved home and accessory offerings of the brand from chic and classic twillies to other novelty items like plates, glasses, and cups.
Meanwhile, acclaimed fashion illustrator Pete Rich also graced the event for a live art session. Friends of Asian Dragon were enthralled by Rich’s exquisite portraits of them in their favorite Tiffany jewelry pieces – a memorable token for keeps from this special event.
The Tiffany Archives
“Filipinos love diamonds and they favor intricate styles,” says Genevieve Jimenez Yalung, Country Manager at Tiffany & Co.
Yalung opened up about the recent launching of Tiffany & Co.’s new flagship store in the Philippines. “We are launching Tiffany & Co. here after the pandemic. We are happy that Filipinos are receiving it very well. They’re excited to try the new collection,” she expressed, noting sales are good in a discerning market for diamonds and jewelry like the Philippines. She also noted that the brand is expanding its collection to appeal to a wider market from across generations – from toddlers to millennials, for everyone.
“Tiffany is timeless. It is ageless,” she stressed to this point.
Its latest Tiffany Lock collection embodies the personal bonds that connect and make us who we are. The Lock bangles, famous for its innovative swiveling padlock mechanism, is a unisex collection that can be his or her may it be in full pavé (closely set, small diamonds covering the entire band), half pavé, or pure metal.
“For the Lock, there will be additional styles coming in. We’ll be launching more diamond styles month after month leading to holidays,” Yalung shared.
