It was very inspiring to work directly with their Paris team to review designs and materials and then to make it come to life,” Chan says. Pictured: YSL Toronto pop-up store

The duo designed more than 80 events in 2018, including a weeklong holiday pop-up shop for Moët Hennessy and the YSL Beauty Hotel during the Toronto International Film Festival. When it comes to designing an event, they believe basic “house party” rules apply: “a welcoming host, good food, good ambiance, and good company.”
