For more than a century the animal kingdom has captivated the imagination of Van Cleef & Arpels, whose designers have frequently incorporated animals into the maison’s high jewellery collections. Most recently, the French house took inspiration from Noah’s Ark to create the Arche de Noé collection, and called on American visual artist Robert Wilson to create a unique installation to showcase the magnificent pieces. The installation, which made its debut in Paris late last year, moved to Hong Kong recently, and Van Cleef & Arpels hosted an exclusive cocktail party at the Asia Society to introduce the collection to the city.
