On Thursday 15th June, the “Sommet du Luxe et de la Création”, organized by the Centre du Luxe et de la Création, was held in Paris at the Hotel InterContinental Paris Le Grand. The theme of the event stemmed from the reflection “What are the reference points and values that shape the soul of luxury today?”. Among the speakers, Alberto Cavalli, general director of Fondazione Cologni and executive director of Michelangelo Foundation, held a keynote speech dedicated to “Talent and Beauty”. In the afternoon, presented by French journalist Patrice Bouillot, the "Les Talents du luxe et de la création" 2023 awards ceremony took place, honoring luxury designers, managers, ateliers and companies for the excellence of their extraordinary know-how.
