To celebrate this exciting new journey, Buro 24/7 Malaysia shot Friend of Buro, Jane Chuck decked head to toe in Louis Vuitton AW16. Jane carries key leather goods such as the Petite Malle and the Twist bag, both of which will be on display at Seven Terraces, amongst other key pieces from the latest collection.
