Ricardo Guadalupe, CEO of Hublot, and Vincent Roy, Brand Director of Hublot France, Belgium & Luxembourg, invited over 200 guests to celebrate art at the Fondation Louis Vuitton, a symbolic destination dedicated to art and culture. Brand ambassadors, exceptional guests, including the artists Richard Orlinski and Marc Ferrero, glorified the “Hublot Loves Art” theme that the House embodies through its timepieces, which combine the technique in an electro-atmosphere orchestrated by Dixon, Pedro Winter, and Jean Tonique. The guests admired the choreographer Léo Walk and his company, La Marche Bleue, and the rhythm of their organic and poetic gestures. The football world champion and brand ambassador Kylian Mbappé surprised guests when he arrived on stage.
In the course of the exhibition devoted to Charlotte Perriand, 20th-century architect and visionary creator, guests met Booba, Presnel Kimpembe, Stephane Bianchi, head of LVMH watch division, Jean Roch and Anais Pedri, Carla Ginola, Habib Beye… who, at the end of the evening, could discover the work being painted live by Marc Ferrero.
In the name of Hublot, I wanted to thank the Fondation Louis Vuitton for welcoming us in this unique and incredible place. Art has always been at the heart of the brand, which wanted to spend an evening celebrating all the artists with which it has collaborated, some of whom honored us with their presence last night. – Ricardo Guadalupe, CEO Hublot
This evening was also an opportunity to showcase Hublot watches with new features launched in 2019, such as the new Big Bang Sang Bleu, the Classic Fusion Ferrari GT, and the Classic Fusion Orlinski line.
Opened in 2014, the Fondation Vuitton is a combination of the lightness of glass architecture and a story rooted in the French culture of the 19th century. The Fondation project shook up the principles of architecture and in similar way, Hublot shook up the deep-rooted traditions of Watchmaking by proposing the first gold watch on a rubber strap.
