The ExtraOrdinary Exhibition fundraised for HKD120,000 of artworks auctioned to fund women focused charity

Opening conversations on women’s health is no easy feat, yet theKaren Leung Foundation’s (KLF), The ExtraOrdinary Exhibition, is a health awareness program that proves to be powerful. Across the last 6 weeks and various locations, the exhibition has sold 25% of their selected artworks and has set goal to raise half a million Hong Kong dollars. 

“The ugly truth is that over 2,000 women annually in Hong Kong are diagnosed with at least one major form of gynecological cancer,” says Katharina Reimer, Executive Director of The Karen Leung Foundation. “And with the lack of communication and knowledge, many miss early treatment. So, we want to bring the local community together to change this difficult conversation into something more relatable – art.” 

The ExtraOrdinary Exhibition features over 40 artworks from local and international artists, carrying paintings, photography, sculptures, and NFT art. Each piece carefully selected from Hong Kong’s rising artists like Claudia Chanhoi, Ka Ying Wong, Vox Vanguard, and more, to interpret a woman’s life experience. Reimer says the foundation’s community and outreach has grown exponentially with many interests from businesses, corporates, and high-level individuals. 

A women-led and women-focused insurance brokerage firm, Alea, begins their partnership with KLF to raise awareness on women-related health issues and donating a portion of each of their sales to support all their programs. 

To further spread the word of women’s health and risks of gynaecological cancer, KLF and the Hong Kong Youth Arts Foundation (HKYAF) has released a dance film titled, “BREATHE”, embodying the feminine experience. Directed by Lindsey McAllister, the choreography delves into the emotional toll of one who would suffer from cancer and hopes that this art of expression will resonate with the audience and bring light to women’s wellbeing. 

Proceeds raised from the art exhibition will be used to fund all of KLF’s programs to educate, prevent, and provide support services to women at risk of gynecological cancer. The final leg of this year’s exhibition will be displayed at The Hari Hong Kong until 3rd January 2022, and the online catalogue will be available until 31st December 2021.

THE EXTRAORDINARY EXHIBITION @ THE HARI HONG KONG Location: The Hari Hong Kong, 330 Lockhart Road, Wan Chai Duration: 29 September 2021 to 3 January 2022 Price: Free

M+ celebrates its opening ahead of its public launch

M+, Asia’s first global museum of contemporary visual culture in the West Kowloon Cultural District of Hong Kong, opens to the public on Friday, 12 November 2021 with three weekends of celebratory programmes for everyone to enjoy. The West Kowloon Cultural District Authority (WKCDA) and M+ today (11 November) invited guests and media to inaugurate this monumental addition to Hong Kong and Asia’s cultural landscape. 

The media preview of M+ was followed by a ribbon-cutting ceremony, officiated by Carrie Lam, Chief Executive of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKSAR); Wang Songmiao, Secretary-General of the Liaison Office of the Central People's Government in the HKSAR; Henry Tang, Chairman of the Board of the WKCDA; John Lee Ka-chiu, Chief Secretary for Administration of the HKSAR; Victor Lo, Chairman of the M+ Board; Ronald Arculli, Vice Chairman of the Board of the WKCDA; Caspar Tsui, Secretary for Home Affairs of the HKSAR Government; Betty Fung, Chief Executive Officer of WKCDA; and Suhanya Raffel, Museum Director, M+. Other guests attending the event included members of the WKCDA Board, the M+ Board, the Board of the Hong Kong Palace Museum, committees and panels of the WKCDA, government officials, and other stakeholders. 

Mrs Carrie Lam, Chief Executive of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region said, “M+ is the much-anticipated flagship project for the local and international visual arts sector. The museum’s scale is second to none in Asia. It houses and displays visual culture collections from Hong Kong, Mainland China, Asia and other regions. Looking ahead, we have the grand opening of the Hong Kong Palace Museum scheduled for mid-2022, so along with the newly renovated Hong Kong Museum of Art, Victoria Harbour will soon be home to three spectacular world-class museum facilities, paving the way for Hong Kong to become a global landmark for visual art and culture.” 

Henry Tang said, ‘The opening of M+ completes a major milestone in the development of West Kowloon, making a vital contribution to the future of Hong Kong as one of the world’s leading art hubs, and a world-class tourism destination for local, regional, and international visitors. Together with other arts and cultural facilities in the West Kowloon Cultural District, M+ will offer visitors an arts and cultural journey with a holistic experience, creating multiple synergies with regional and international cultural partners that will help revitalise Hong Kong’s tourism industry in a post-pandemic world.’ 

Victor Lo said, ‘For many years, M+ has nurtured the careers of artists from Hong Kong and Mainland China through the acquisition of works and by supporting emerging talent through our programme of awards, commissions and displays. We are delighted to open the doors of M+, Asia’s first global museum of contemporary visual culture, so that we can build on our role to enrich the lives of this region’s artists, makers, practitioners, and professionals while fostering cultural exchange between Hong Kong and the world.’ 

Suhanya Raffel said, ‘Our vision for M+ is to build a community of learning that encourages empathy, respect, multiple perspectives, and creativity through visual culture for all our audiences to benefit from. By offering an open and welcoming platform with creative learning experiences, M+ is dedicated to creating an active culture that connects people, objects and spaces. It is our hope that the museum inspires the city’s residents and international visitors alike.’ The opening displays feature M+’s pre-eminent collections of visual art, design and architecture, and moving image from Hong Kong, Greater China, Asia, and beyond. The presentations showcase approximately 1,500 works across thirty-three galleries and other spaces in the museum. 

To inaugurate the new galleries, six exhibitions enable visitors to explore the overarching multidisciplinary and interregional themes and narratives at the heart of the collections M+ has built since 2012: Hong Kong: Here and Beyond (G, Main Hall Gallery) – divided into four chapters, Here, Identities, Places and Beyond, the exhibition captures the city’s transformation and unique visual culture from the 1960s to the present; M+ Sigg Collection: From Revolution to Globalisation (level 2, Sigg Galleries) – a chronological survey of the development of contemporary Chinese art from the 1970s through the 2000s drawn from the M+ Sigg Collection; Things, Spaces, Interactions (level 2, East Galleries) – a thematic and chronological exploration of international design and architecture over the last seventy years and their relevance to our lives today; Individuals, Networks, Expressions (level 2, South Galleries) – a narrative of post-war international visual art told from the perspective of Asia; Antony Gormley: Asian Field (level 2, West Gallery) – an expansive installation of tens of thousands of clay figurines created by the world-renowned British sculptor together with 300 villagers from a Guangdong village in five days in 2003, reflecting the country’s vast territory and population; and The Dream of the Museum (level 2, Courtyard Galleries) – a global constellation of conceptual art practices at the heart of M+’s unique Asian context.

Visitors will encounter additional new commissions upon entering the Main Hall by Taiwan’s leading calligraphy artist Tong Yang-Tze, and the Donor Wall Texture, a digital composition of text displayed on an LED screen by acclaimed Japan’s designer Nakamura Yugo. In the Found Space, M+’s subterranean display space for large-scale multidisciplinary works, the first in a dynamic series of installations will present the work of artists Chen Zhen and Danh Vo. 

A new M+ Commission by Haegue Yang features long braids of metal bells that hang from ceilings of different heights. Video highlights from the collection and a ten-part animation How to Build a Museum by Vincent Broquaire are featured on the M+ Facade. Designed by a global team of the world-renowned architecture practice Herzog & de Meuron in partnership with TFP Farrells and Arup, the 65,000-square-metre M+ building is among Hong Kong’s most iconic landmarks, both monumental in its architectural form and radically open in its position in the urban landscape. 

Located on the Victoria Harbour waterfront, the architecture consists of a striking terracotta tile-clad tower, featuring a dynamic LED media system on the south facade for the display of M+ content, defining the museum’s place within the urban landscape and contributing to the city’s vibrant night-time environment. To celebrate the opening of the museum, M+ will stage opening programmes for the public across three Fridays and weekends following the launch, featuring special tours, making workshops, sensory experiences, live performances, screenings, and digital engagement. The Grand Stair will screen the documentary Building M+, and host M+ Live Art x Hong Kong Ballet - Five Tiny Dances. A dedicated learning programme will engage families and audiences from different backgrounds and community groups in Hong Kong with the full breadth of its offer as a museum of visual culture. Visitors can explore M+’s collection of moving image works in the Mediatheque, selecting artists’ films and videos to watch, including works related to multimedia artist Nam June Paik. The M+ Cinema, which will be open early next year, is a unique addition to Hong Kong’s art house landscape, comprising a suite of three cinema houses of different capacities. All visitors will enjoy free admission to M+ exhibitions, except for special exhibitions and events, in the first twelve months after the opening date.

CANADA GOOSE LAUNCHES PERFORMANCE LUXURY FOOTWEAR COLLECTION

CANADA GOOSE LAUNCHES PERFORMANCE LUXURY FOOTWEAR COLLECTION

CANADA GOOSE LAUNCHES PERFORMANCE LUXURY FOOTWEAR COLLECTION

Today, Canada Goose (NYSE: GOOS, TSX: GOOS) launches its first-ever Footwear Collection, debuting two innovative styles for men and women: the Snow Mantra Boots and the Journey Boots. As the ultimate expression of the brand, this new category delivers on its purpose and takes its acclaimed function-first design to another level. 

"Building new categories is a core competency for us and footwear is the natural next step in our product portfolio," said Dani Reiss, President & CEO, Canada Goose. "Canada Goose Footwear has been years in the making, as we defined and developed this category unlike anything seen before – something that our consumers have long been asking us for. This collection exemplifies the Canada Goose lifestyle, standing the test of time and the elements." 

The collection launches with a global campaign that explores real stories of real people through three videos: Romeo Beckham; Indigenous Artist & Activist, Sarain Fox; and Indigenous Leader and Former NHL Player, Jordin Tootoo. Their powerful stories of resilience and perseverance, of defining their own paths, are told through Canada Goose’s Live in the Open ethos, which invites people to express themselves freely without judgment. 

Living within that ethos is a Force of Nature, detailing personal journeys, each striving for their own metaphorical summit. Gear testing is a fundamental part of the design process at Canada Goose with its network of industry experts. For Footwear, the brand tapped adventurers, athletes, researchers and cinematographers to test the boots over a course of six months. They embodied the mantra of living in the open, traversing continents and logging thousands of kilometers, across diverse terrain and a wide range of temperatures and weather conditions. The brand was inspired by its six-decade product archive for this collection - a design technique that mirrors its approach to outerwear and apparel, reimagining and reinventing its iconic pieces. 

The Snow Mantra Parka served as the inspiration for the two footwear styles, employing the same legendary features and performance qualities. Canada Goose footwear is handcrafted by experts and each pair are one-of-a-kind. The patina of the soft and durable leather is a hallmark of its high quality, a characteristic that develops over time and tells a story of its adventures. The Snow Mantra Boots are made of nylon, called Tundra Tech, and leather, and are packed with the DNA of its namesake parka counterpart. The boot is designed for use in extreme environments, which requires a secure fit, as well as additional warmth and comfort. The insulated liner molds to the foot shape over time to create a unique and tailored fit. 

As with any Canada Goose product, the features make it versatile and adaptable to wear and deliver beyond extreme temperatures. Drawcords and cord locks allow for quick adjustments and seal out the elements, while the varied lacing modes create different fits for wear in diverse environments. The Snow Mantra Boot is available in black, white, and red for men and women.

CANADA GOOSE LAUNCHES PERFORMANCE LUXURY FOOTWEAR COLLECTION

The Journey is a performance luxury hiking boot, handmade in Italy and inspired by vintage hiking boots. The versatility and custom fit are also brought into this style. The upper, constructed with just three pieces, guarantees flexibility and as a result, enduring use, as it too will mold to the foot’s shape. The scratch rubber bumper is a refined take on protection, with the chamfered edge referencing the texture from climbing shoes and providing protection from water or rock. The Journey Boot comes in black, white/snowcap, tundra clay/camel for women, and black, dark cedarwood/black, mid-grey/white for men; the latter of which is made with suede. Both styles are built with a waterproof membrane, creating a fully sealed barrier. 

They’re each rated on the brand’s proprietary Thermal Experience Index (TEI), just like its outerwear, another testament to the performance and heritage of the styles. The Snow Mantra Boot is a TEI 5, protecting in temperatures that reach -30°C / -25°F and below, while the Journey Boot is a TEI 2, designed for 0°C to -15°C / 32°F to 5°F. Canada Goose relentlessly seeks to be sustainably innovative, focused on enacting change and driving impact through its HUMANATURE purpose platform, which unites its sustainability and values-based initiatives. Canada Goose Footwear strengthens this focus. The Snow Mantra and Journey Boots are made with responsibly sourced TerraCare® Leather. TerraCare® is dedicated to using and developing ecological tanning methods, resulting in lower water and chemical consumption. Specific to innovation, the Snow Mantra Boots are made with Primaloft® Gold Insulation and Primaloft® Aerogel, allowing the boots to function under repeated compression, wear and use, as well as retain and provide warmth when wet. The brand’s 35+ stores will further support the storytelling around the launch with dedicated retail theatre, and interactive and immersive experiences that bring footwear to life as an exhibition. All footwear purchased will be packaged in an exclusive and limited-edition case that emphasizes the ultimate in protection and durability in a functional model. Additionally, 3D vortex murals in select cities around the world literally demonstrate a Force of Nature. Canada Goose Footwear is available now in its stores around the world, online at canadagoose.com and at select wholesale partners.

THE ICONS COLLECTION FROM CANADA GOOSE RETURNS

THE ICONS COLLECTION FROM CANADA GOOSE RETURNS WITH TWO NEW CAPSULES THAT REDEFINE THE BRAND’S MOST CELEBRATED STYLES: GLACIAL HAZE AND X-RAY FIRST FROST

THE ICONS COLLECTION FROM CANADA GOOSE RETURNS

The Fall/Winter 2021 THE ICONS collection from Canada Goose introduces two capsules that feature elevated takes on the brand’s defining styles. Born from Canada Goose’s heritage and design expertise, and inspired by its six-decade archive, THE ICONS reinterprets key pieces that are deeply engrained in the brand's legacy. Timeless, tested, and legendary, the Snow Mantra Parka, Chilliwack Bomber and Freestyle Vest come to life in a colourful and refreshing new way. Renowned as one of the warmest coats on earth, and one of the most iconic pieces in the Canada Goose archive, the Snow Mantra Parka is the pinnacle of performance and function. 

The jacket's influence is engrained in the brand with its DNA guiding a design feature in nearly every Canada Goose design. Developed for bush pilots in Canada’s North, the Chilliwack Bomber provides durability, warmth, and mobility. A popular and iconic style, the Chilliwack is one of Canada Goose’s most beloved jackets. The Freestyle Vest is a versatile layering piece, offering maximum warmth and comfort perfect for the transitional seasons. It is the classic, functional, and adaptable nature of these products that make them iconic Canada Goose pieces. 

This season, these heritage styles are reimagined through two refined unisex capsules: Glacial Haze and X-RAY First Frost. THE ICONS’ first new capsule, Glacial Haze, is a dramatic and moody collection inspired by the colour and texture of arctic glaciers, and the misty, hazy conditions of the northern waters. As a brand born in the North, Canada Goose draws inspiration from its people, communities, and extraordinary environments. 

As a result, the collection is brought to life in a range of icy hues – White, Dawn Blue and Spirit. The Glacial Haze Snow Mantra Parka (HKD 14,000), Glacial Haze Chilliwack Bomber (HKD 8,400) and Glacial Haze Freestyle Vest (HKD 4,300) all articulated with white trims – zippers, buttons, d-rings, pull tabs and a white silicone Canada Goose disc – for a contemporary and bold design without sacrificing performance and function. Created for high altitude performance, the fabric is lightweight, durable, soft, highly water-resistant, and breathable to provide unparalleled element protection in any climate. 

X-RAY First Frost evokes the unique phenomenon of bright Arctic flowers blooming through snow, crafted in a transparent fabric that is exceptionally lightweight, and water and wind-resistant. The capsule features the X-RAY Freestyle Vest (HKD 9,800), X-RAY Chilliwack Bomber (HKD 11,300), X-RAY Snow Mantra Parka (HKD 18,900), offered in Electric Yellow, Overboard Yellow, Summit Pink, Sunset Orange and Pacific Blue that mimic the look of nature’s vibrant colours softened by frost.

The collection also includes the X-RAY Arctic Disc Toque (HKD 2,400) offered in Electric Yellow, Overboard Yellow, Summit Pink and Sunset Orange finished with a transparent silicone Canada Goose disc. THE ICONS Glacial Haze capsule is available from October 28th at select Canada Goose retail stores, online at canadagoose.com and select wholesale partners globally.

JOHNNIE WALKER AND THE CHINESE LIBRARY PRESENT AN EXCEPTIONAL JOHN WALKER & SONS XR 21 AND CHESTNUT PAIRING


JOHNNIE WALKER AND THE CHINESE LIBRARY PRESENT  AN EXCEPTIONAL JOHN WALKER & SONS XR 21 AND CHESTNUT PAIRING
XR 21

The World’s No. 1 whisky brand* - Johnnie Walker, with one of its exclusive blends John Walker & Sons XR 21, symbolising the rich heritage and legacy that John Walker passed on to his successors since 1820. From November 1 to 30, Johnnie Walker is going to join hands with The Chinese Library, a contemporary regional Chinese restaurant in Tai Kwun, to launch four seasonal dishes which match perfectly with Johnnie Walker & Sons XR 21.

The warmth of the whisky pairs particularly well with chestnuts, and thus The Chinese Library created a quartet of dishes deliciously incorporating chestnuts, allowing diners to personally experience the surprises brought by the extraordinary whisky and the tasty delicacies for autumn and winter to the taste buds. Using an extremely rare three-stage blending method, the creation of John Walker & Sons XR 21 whisky requires unparalleled dedication from the most-skilled craftsmen.

Sharing the same brand values as Johnnie Walker, The Chinese Library meticulously creates innovative dishes with expert craftsmanship celebrating the city’s most favoured Chinese food loved and embraced by the people of Hong Kong. The 21-Year-Old whiskey itself has a slight peat, smoky and chestnut aroma, making it a heavenly match with the smoky roasted chestnuts traditionally found in Hong Kong during the colder months. 

Enjoying the whisky with chestnuts will bring the smoky flavour of the whisky to the next level. Johnnie Walker and The Chinese Library collaboratively launch four seasonal, limited-time chestnut specials that form a perfect match with the remarkable whisky. Creatively prepared by The Chinese Library’s Executive Chef Junno Li Zhen Long through diverse cooking methods, each dish has the option to be paired with a glass of John Walker & Sons XR 21 whisky (a la carte: HK$278 for 50ml). Featuring peerless whiskies and seasonal delicacies, the heavenly-matched pairing is available for a limited time only for lunch and dinner.
