In the Studio – Kevin Kwan

In recent years, dyed-in-the-wool New Yorker Kevin Kwan, author of the New York Times Bestseller ‘Crazy Rich Asians’, has made Los Angeles his home.

The city is rich with art, fashion and intriguing social structures – Kevin’s key sources of inspiration. It’s become his living and breathing studio.

On location in LA, Kevin takes us around the city – we visit an exhibition paying homage to Joan Didion, his favourite writer (and a fellow Angeleno), hang out at the Huntington estate in Pasadena, we go shopping in West Hollywood, and take tea at the Beverly Hills Peninsula Hotel.
