Last night's Art Futures event at Lane Crawford ifc in collaboration with NYC tastemakers,Partners & Spade,and the current talk-of-the-town, ArtHK, was decidedly more laid-back than their usual soirees. Gone were the crazy VM set-ups, carnival-inspired canapes and flash-mob performances. In their place? An interesting international mix of attendees who were a refreshing change from the usual Hong Kong fashion crowd. The atmosphere was much more befitting for such an event whose purpose was to showcase up-and-coming artistic talent. In a city that's so often dominated by boring black, white and grey, we're digging the suspended neon bicycle, colourful striped ties and bright rainforest animal motifs scattered throughout the store.
