Van Cleef & Arpel’s L’École School of Jewellery Opens First International Campus in Hong Kong

After three successful pop-up programmes in Hong Kong, L’École which is supported by Van Cleef & Arpels, is finally opening a permanent campus in Hong Kong this Autumn. 

Founded in the legendary Place Vendôme in Paris seven years ago, L’École, supported by Van Cleef & Arpels, is widely recognised as the pioneer in its field.  The campus will be located at K11 Musea, the new luxury experiential retail, art and cultural destination in Tsim Sha Tsui.

“In less than a decade, L’ÉCOLE has already welcomed over 30,000 alumni from 50 different nationalities worldwide through its courses and talks and 32,000 visitors to its exceptional exhibitions,” said Nicolas Bos, President and CEO of Van Cleef & Arpels. “We are looking forward to giving more people access to L’ÉCOLE’s expertise and unique offerings through our support of the second permanent campus in Hong Kong.”

The Asia Pacific campus, once complete, comprises two levels of intimate classrooms, workshops, exhibition spaces and a specialised library with over 600 titles on jewellery art and design.  Will launch with 17 course topics under three core themes of Savoir-Faire (Craftsmanship), Art History of Jewelry, and The Universe of Gemstones. Committed to providing a truly personal approach to education, each class will be restricted to 12 students. Lacking inspiration? Head to the library, which houses over 600 books on all things fine jewellery. 

The international faculty will include experts, passionate jewellers, designers, jewellery historians, gemologists and more. The school will also launch a full-year programme that includes Workshops for Young People, Evening Conversations and, for the first time in Hong Kong, curated exhibitions showcasing jewellery from some of the most magnificent private collections, along with remarkable creations by contemporary artists.
