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!

Immerse yourself in the curated perspective of world-renowned artist Alexvi Li at K11 MUSEA! Showcased in Hong Kong for the first time, Alexvi: Three Distances consolidates the photographer’s many years of art practice, exploring the poignant connections between the photographer, the subject, and the viewer across two spaces in K11 MUSEA.
Explore the Trio: Back to Black, Peking Apartments, Lonely Planet
Presenting three of the artist’s series, the showcase depicts forms of distance: Back to Black features close-up portraits of famous faces; Peking Apartment gives an alternative look at fashion icons in their private spaces; and Lonely Planet offers a furtive view of bystanders and their relationship with their screens.
Since 2009, the artist has captured portraits of more than 150 well-known Chinese actors and singers in a unified, black-and-white format. The resulting Back to Black series is a stunning record of 12 years of Chinese cinema, displayed in a dimmed space to emphasise the blurred distinction between icons and idols in the age of consumerism.
Location: G06, G/F, K11 MUSEA
