On location at Bar Privé, a Louis Vuitton event in Singapore that was dedicated to its most privileged clients to experience the French fashion house’s new Exotic leather collection, Prestige worked on a special photo shoot with the lovely Rika Pauzie to showcase some of the maison’s latest creations.
It was a sunny afternoon in Singapore when Prestige enjoyed the opportunity to preview Louis Vuitton’s new Exotic collection. Among the privileged clients in attendance that day was Indonesian socialite Rika Pauzie, who took time out of her busy schedule to do a shoot with us, highlighting some of the exquisite pieces from the collection.
“I’ve known and worn Louis Vuitton since I was at University. The first thing that comes to my mind with LV is its superb craftsmanship and quality; one word to describe it is timeless,” said Rika, “As a French icon, I have seen it becoming very global and more fashionable as a brand that not only offers leather goods and ready-to-wear, but various lifestyle products including home furniture (Objets Nomades).
“I am an advisor on public relations for the events and social media division of Le Château Living, a premium showroom in Jakarta that carries various international brands, focusing on the fulfilment of bathroom and relaxation needs,” said Rika. “Currently, I am assisting the Director of our newly launched bath accessories collection, as well as upcoming events and collaborations with other brands.”
“This is not a full time job but it gives me the opportunity to meet new people while allowing me time to do my duties as a mother of my two daughters, who are in their late teens. My first is in her sophomore year at Loyola Marymount University, California, so I travel a lot to visit her there. At the same time, I manage to be involved with my second daughter who is still in high school in Jakarta. I try my best to balance my work because I put my family first, as always.
“It is an honour for me to be invited to the exotic leather event in Singapore,” said Rika of her experience attending Bar Privé. “I get to see the new Louis Vuitton exotic leather collection. The collection is spectacular because the pieces are created in various technique and styles, in all the different exotic leathers from ostrich, lizard to crocodile … in any colours possible … including ombre and tie-dye … amazing!
“It was also a great experience to meet and see Louis Vuitton artisan, Monsieur Jacques Royer, who demonstrated the process of putting together the Capucines bag, as well as meeting fellow Louis Vuitton clients from all over the world.”
