The first product in the AFL line is a scent called Fargesia, which he created in collaboration with cult perfumer Julian Bedel of Fueguia 1833 Patagonia. At M&O ASIA 2016, Fu will present his bathroom collection for Cooper & Graham.
“M&O embraces the spirit of contemporary lifestyle and is a genuine celebration of modern artisanship,” says André Fu.
