Hong Kong-born, Paris-based Grace Leo (see issue one for the feature on her Paris home) is known as one of the pioneers of the boutique hotel movement. Born to hoteliers and formalising her education at both Cornell and Stanford, Leo is more qualified than most to consult on hospitality. When this is coupled with her innate sense of style and savoir faire, it’s no wonder she is responsible for some of the most luxurious hotels in the world.
In her first solo venture, online luxury boutique A Touch of Grace, Leo has created a platform to present a wide range of high-quality hand-crafted products from lesser-known European brands, making them available in Asia for the first time. The curated selection spans four categories:
Art of the table is a range of flatware, glassware, dinnerware, serving pieces and accessories from brands such as Orrefors, SIECLE, Garnier-Thiebaut and Dibbern
Art of decorating includes vases, decorative bowls, boxes and cushions from brands such as LANCE, L’Objet and FRADKOF.
Art of pampering consists of fashion accessories from brands such as Apto and Victoria de Talhora
Art of gifting is a selection of thoughtful gifts for him and her from brands such as Vittorio Martini and Médard de Noblat
Each pieces has been carefully hand-selected by Leo herself, with the thought that each product can be purchased individually but has also been styled into a range of distinctive collections, allowing clients to purchase an entire ‘look’.
A Touch of Grace lives up to its name — it is not just a store, but an interactive platform where Grace is available to answer questions about living the good life.
