Following a successful debut in Paris and Tokyo, the “Men’s Rings, Yves Gastou Collection” Exhibition has arrived at L’ECOLE Asia Pacific in K11 MUSEA, bringing more than 300 rare and exotic men’s rings to the city for the very first time.
An unprecedented collection of pieces that span over 300 years of savoir-faire — some dating back to the 17th Century — the collection embodies the passion of the late French connoisseur and reputable art dealer Yves Gastou. Accumulated over a period of 40 years, each ring contains a story of the collector, displayed across five themes that define the collection and illustrate its diversity: History, Gothic, Christian Mystique, Vanitas, and Eclecticism.
Offered alongside the exhibition, a limited time course beyond the exhibition titled “Men’s Jewellery Through Time: Toward Modern Masculinity” will also be available for avid art and jewellery lovers alike.
Register now for free to enter “Men’s Rings, Yves Gastou Collection” at K11 MUSEA’s L’ECOLE Asia Pacific to discover the grand history and magnificence of men’s jewellery, and marvel at Yves Gastou’s astounding collection!

How do you make art from broken things?
Shards of broken metal, crumbling moulds, and deformed pottery are easily seen as failed works or forgotten vestiges of the past. Yet in the eyes of artist duo Julie & Jesse, the thousands of years of failures and mistakes in porcelain craft serve as an artistic point of departure — a treasure trove of inspiration that drives their creation. Drawing on the rich yet fragmented history of Chinese porcelain, Julie & Jesse’s experimental ceramics explore the relationships between human and object, and nature and industry, against the changing landscape of art.
In this Zoom K11 Konversation, we speak with Julie Progin and Jesse Mc Lin, founders of Julie & Jesse, on their approach to art, the act of preserving history and culture through continued creation, and the importance of play in inspiring the next generation of artists.
Enrol in this K11 Konversation now to discover a whole world of beauty from the broken and lost!
Julie Progin & Jesse Mc Lin, Co-founders of Julie & Jesse and Latitude 22N
Established in Hong Kong and Jingdezhen, Julie & Jesse is the creative partnership of Hong Kong-born Swiss designer Julie Progin and American artist Jesse Mc Lin. Embracing the culture and history behind each project, the duo’s practice stretches across the fields of design, craft, and art, blending research and material experimentation into the making of innovative porcelain objects and installations. Julie & Jesse’s works have been shown at institutions such as M+ Museum, Design Society, the Triennale Di Milano & Chicago Design Museum, and K11 Art Foundation.
