The Pradasphere Hong Kong opening featured a live performance by Pop star Lorde, and gave guests flashbacks of the old days when brands threw massive, champagne-soaked parties in the city.

Pradasphere is essentially a pop-up museum of the Prada brand perched atop the Lamma Island Ferry Pier. The large exhibition features a wide assortment of pieces from the Prada vaults and traces the development of the brand.

Pradasphere is filled with items by the esteemed label in addition to inspirations in art, film, and design.

The exhibition has echoes of Chanel Mobile Art, which debuted in Hong Kong in 2008, before traveling to several other cities around the world. That project, which featured a temporary structure by Zaha Hadid, and was presided over by Karl Lagerfeld, was similarly constructed on the rooftop of a building in Central.

After spending time viewing the exhibition, guests at the opening made their way down to a lower floor which featured a huge party space complete with food, multiple bars, and a concert area with stage. The large party room was the ideal size for the number of guests attending. The space was crowded throughout, but never at a complete standstill.

Music for much of the night was provided by Paris-based DJ, Mimi Xu, aka Misty Rabbit, who is a favorite of international fashion brands. She played an eclectic set that dug deeper than the typical range you normally hear at Hong Kong fashion fetes.
