Paris, 16 December 2019– Yesterday in the heart of the Fondation Louis Vuitton, an emblematic site dedicated to art and culture, Ricardo Guadalupe, CEO of Hublot, and Vincent Roy, Brand Director of Hublot France, Belgium & Luxembourg, welcomed over 200 guests to celebrate art, a subject close to the heart of the Swiss watchmaking house, at the end of this year. Brand ambassadors, exceptional guests invited by Hublot for the occasion, including the artists Richard Orlinski and Marc Ferrero, were able to celebrate the “Hublot Loves Art” theme that the House embodies through its watchmaking creations, which combine technique and artistic aestheticism, in an electro-atmosphere orchestrated by Dixon, Pedro Winter and Jean Tonique. The guests were swept away by the choreographer Léo Walk and his company, La Marche Bleue, and the rhythm of their organic and poetic gestures. The football world champion and brand ambassador Kylian Mbappé surprised guests when he arrived on stage, much to their delight.

HUBLOT CELEBRATES ART FOR A NIGHT IN PARIS
In the course of the exhibition devoted to Charlotte Perriand, 20th-centruy architect and visionary creator, guests had the chance of brushing shoulders with Booba, Presnel Kimpembe, Stephane Bianchi, head of LVMH watch division, Jean Roch and Anais Pedri, Carla Ginola, Habib Beye… who, at the end of the evening, could discover the work being painted live by Marc Ferrero.
In the name of Hublot, I wanted to thank the Fondation Louis Vuitton for welcoming us in this unique and incredible place. Art has always been at the heart of the brand, which wanted to spend an evening celebrating all the artists with which it has collaborated, some of whom honoured us with their presence last night. Ricardo Guadalupe CEO HUBLOT
We were happy to be able to bring together clients and partners to celebrate the end of the
year in a modern and uninhibited atmosphere, which, just like Hublot, combined different
artistic disciplines such as music, dance and design.

This evening was also an opportunity to once again present Hublot watches with new features launched in 2019, such as the new Big Bang Sang Bleu, the Classic Fusion Ferrari GT, and the Classic Fusion Orlinski line.
Inaugurated in 2014, the Fondation Vuitton represents the fusion between the lightness of glass architecture and a story rooted in the French culture of the 19th century. As much as in the very design of the project as in the start of work, the Fondation project shook up the principles of architecture, like Hublot which is, par excellence, the watchmaking brand which shook up the deep-rooted traditions of Watchmaking by offering the first gold watch on a rubber strap, in other words a precious metal on a less noble material.
Founded in Switzerland in 1980, HUBLOT is defined by its innovation, which began with the highly original combination of gold and rubber. This “Art of Fusion” stems from the imagination of its visionary Chairman, Jean-Claude Biver, and has been driven forward by CEO Ricardo Guadalupe since 2012.
The release of the iconic, multi-award-winning Big Bang in 2005 paved the way for new flagship collections (Classic Fusion, Spirit of Big Bang), with complications ranging from the simple to the highly sophisticated, establishing the extraordinary DNA of the Swiss watchmaking house and ensuring its impressive growth.
Keen to preserve its traditional and cutting-edge expertise, and guided by its philosophy to “Be First, Different and Unique”, the Swiss watchmaker is consistently ahead of the curve, through its innovations in materials (scratch-resistant Magic Gold, ceramics in vibrant colours, sapphire), and the creation of Manufacture movements (Unico, Meca-10, Tourbillon).
HUBLOT is fully committed to creating a Haute Horlogerie brand with a visionary future: a future which is fused with the key events of our times (FIFA World CupTM, UEFA Champions LeagueTM, UEFA EUROTM and Ferrari) and the finest ambassadors our era has to offer (Kylian Mbappé, Usain Bolt, Pelé).

THE FONDATION LOUIS VUITTON
Inaugurated in 2014, this space designed and created by Frank Gehry dared to use the technological achievements of the 21st century, opening the way for pioneering innovation. The ambition of the architect, Frank Gehry, was to “design, in Paris, a magnificent vessel symbolising the cultural calling of France” through 11 exhibition galleries overlooking 7,000 m2.
