Chow Tai Fook’s ‘Le Labyrinthe Artistique’ celebrates abstract artists

08 june 2016
Chow Tai Fook Jewellery Group Limited, the largest jeweller listed in Hong Kong showcased 3 sets of one-of-a-kind exclusive auction pieces from the fifth High Jewellery Collection: Le Labyrinthe Artistique on June 4, 2016, in Las Vegas.
This would be the first-ever preview in the United States which is backed by the brand's recognition of the U.S. as an international jewellery hub and its foresights in penetrating the U.S. market.
Inspired by great abstract artists, each unique piece is a celebration of iconic geometric oeuvres of the Modern Period.
As Chow Tai Fook's first collection inspired by the fine arts, Le Labyrinthe Artistique also marks the company's latest milestone in its continuing journey as a leading world class jeweller and brand.
The collection of 15 sets of jewellery presents an abstract maze in which color, form, and dimension unite in homage to the titans of abstract art.
This year, with Le Labyrinthe Artistique, Chow Tai Fook has distilled the very essence of the artists' works and given them new form through our unique interpretation and exceptional craftsmanship.
