Seven brilliant young creatives—Christian Soeseno Boenarso, Adinda Kuntadi, Jovita Widjaja-Roesli, Ramadhania Bakrie, Vannya Istarinda, Arsyah Rasyid and Maudy Ayunda—share the secrets of their success and tales of getting there. Despite the odds stacked against them, the dynamic duo behind fashion label Fiziwoo, Izree Kai Haffiz and Mohd Hafizi Radzi Woo, prove that all you need to thrive during challenging times is grit, hard work and the courage to take risks. One of the region’s most successful movie stars, Tony Leung, graces the cover in celebration of being the recipient of the inaugural Chaplin Award for Asia. Kiera Chaplin presented Leung with the award at the recent Shangliu Tatler Ball in Shanghai. Restaurateur Beppe De Vito and PR maven Lynn Yeow-De Vito tell of the passions that drive them in work and their life…

creative desires

Joyce Wang is filled with a sense of wonder. The award-winning interior designer is fascinated with journeys and places and, through her projects, she loves to transport people—into the past, the future and even alternative realities. Mott 32, the restaurant project that launched her career, invites diners into Hong Kong’s past, while Spiga in LHT Tower transports guests to 1950s Italy, and the E by Equinox St James health club in London’s Mayfair, with its bold, black slate and polished metals, transforms a historic structure into something out of a science fiction film. Joyce believes it was her nomadic upbringing that sparked her roaming imagination. Born to Shanghainese parents in Honolulu, she was raised in Hong Kong, then attended boarding school in the UK and university in Boston, London and the…

Joyce Wang is standing over a flower-shaped Concertina Chair by Raw Edges, a piece from Louis Vuitton’s new Objets Nomades collection, inside the Central Magistracy building at Tai Kwun. In just a few weeks this building will play host to Louis Vuitton’s exhibition of that very collection, for which Joyce is designing the scenography. But you wouldn’t know it today. Before our cover shoot, the Central Magistracy was empty, the wooden floorboards and white walls awaiting Joyce’s magical, transformative touch. The renowned interior designer has an appreciation for luxury fashion, with a penchant for outfits with avant-garde silhouettes and clean, architectural lines. But Joyce prefers to work behind the scenes, which means you’ll often find her in her uniform of a crisp shirt and trousers. Heels? Don’t even think about it. Today…


UNTIL CHAN The Hong Kong-based photographer captures accessories that rival Marie Antoinette’s in Age of Opulence (p.68) What’s the one thing you wish you’d known when you were in your 20s? You can figure everything out, eventually. What are two items on your bucket list? To have six-pack abs for a short period of time (or at least four) and to live on a beach. The most important life lesson? Always be a smart worker rather than being a hard worker. With whom would you most like to be stuck in a lift? A lift engineer. What one thing would you save if your house caught fire? My wife. MADELEINE ROSS The Australian journalist talks to cover star Joyce Wang about her latest collaboration in Time Traveller (p.129) and profiles 40 forces of fashion in Asia (p.158) Who among the 40 female fashion forces…

setting the stage

You could be forgiven for thinking March is all about the visual arts, thanks to the Art Basel juggernaut of the past few years, but the Hong Kong Arts Festival has been delivering a smorgasbord of the performing arts, from opera and dance to theatre and music, since 1973—and the 47th edition lights up the month with numerous highlights. One is Home, a theatrical performance in the loosest sense of the word. It’s an ingenious combination of choreography, music and engineering masterminded by American actor and theatre artist Geoff Sobelle. The idea for the piece came to Sobelle when he was laying a new floor in his kitchen. In stripping away the linoleum tiles, he discovered layer upon layer of old flooring—a reminder that he had inherited his home from previous…
