Mandarin Oriental, Hong Kong is hands-down one of my favorite hotels in the world. The first and flagship property in the Mandarin Oriental Hotel Group just celebrated its 50th anniversary and still serves as a place to see and be seen, enjoy afternoon tea, dine, stay over on business, enjoy a luxury family vacation, of course, shop in many fine boutiques in the hotel and nearby Prince’s Building.
One nearby boutiques happens to be Chloé, the premier fashion brand founded in 1952 by Gaby Aghion. Young Hollywood stars Kirsten Dunst, Natalie Portman and Lou Doillon wear Chloé’s elegant, ultra-feminine clothing and carry the recognizable, stunning handbags.
Fashionistas considering a visit to Hong Kong… the time to go is now. With its commitment to the arts, Mandarin Oriental, Hong Kong is presenting a unique exhibition throughout the summer of artworks curated from Chloé’s archive, to be displayed in the Clipper Lounge. The Chloé Moments Exhibition will showcase the rise of the luxury French fashion Maison Chloé, a crucible of creativity for fashion’s most notable designers dressing women throughout the decades.
In celebration of this special exhibition, guests are invited to enjoy two fantastic offers and an opportunity to bring home a signature luxury Chloé bag.

If you’re going to stay at Mandarin Oriental, Hong Kong, you must have tea at the Clipper Lounge! From 23 June to 31 August 2014, the Clipper Lounge will become home to an exclusive Chloé Moments Exhibition.
To celebrate the launch of Chloé Attitudes, the first book on the history of the Maison from 1952 to today, Chloé will share a unique selection of archived sketches and photographs, to share the story how Chloé founder Gaby Aghion worked with young designers, including Karl Lagerfeld, to materialize ideas into garments for the modern woman, from fashion sketches to the catwalk.
The hotel’s highly creative culinary team will produce Chloé inspired pieces reflecting the images displayed throughout the exhibition that will be offered as part of the hotel’s famed afternoon tea set.
In addition, each guest enjoying an exclusive Chloé Moments Exhibition afternoon tea set is invited to collect a special gift at Chloé boutique in Prince’s Building, Central; and to enter a Prize Draw for a chance to win a Get Carried Away with Chloé package stay at Mandarin Oriental, Hong Kong within the validity dates, a classic manicure and pedicure at The Mandarin Salon, the legendary afternoon tea at the Clipper Lounge, or a copy of Chloé Attitudes book.
