A Drink With… Arthur de Villepin

Leadership

December 22, 2017 | BY Lee Williamson

We bend arms with the French entrepreneur to learn more about the tastemaker behind some of our favourite lifestyle brands

 

Generation T lister Arthur de Villepin is the epitome of French style—and the young entrepreneur has made a career out of it. His lifestyle group Art de Vivre brings some of the best elements of French culture to Asia. In Hong Kong that includes photography label YellowKorner, restaurant Tartine and wine brand Ponts des Arts.

Given de Villepin’s Gallic tastes, we weren’t sure what he’d make of tiki cocktail The Flaming Wizard at tropical-themed bowling alley Tikitiki, where we sit down to chat during the Gen.T Charity Bowl-Off.

A Drink With… is a new series where we sit down with Generation T lister to discover the person behind the success. What motivates them? How do they deal with failure? And do they enjoy flaming cocktails? Watch to find out.
