Last Tuesday in Paris, Okhtein commemorated its “Metasea” collection during haute couture week through an extravagant dinner at Galerie RX curated by Privé Avec Karim. Hosted alongside Okhtein founders Aya and Mounaz Abdel Raouf, as well as Okhtein CEO Mohamed Abdel Raouf, Chef Karim Abdelrahman sought to reflect Egyptian cuisine and the brand’s “Metasea” collection—particularly its central motif of the sea and the metaverse merging. 


The rising ready-to-wear and accessories brand DESTREE opened its flagship store in Paris last Wednesday. Created by Géraldine Guyot and Laetitia Lumbroso, DESTREE hosted its opening celebration with a star-studded guest list, including VIPs like Tayshia Adams, Zoey Deutch, Gavin Leatherwood, and Kelly Rutherford

Grey Goose Essences—the brand’s line of low-ABV, fruit-infused vodka—presented its “In Bloom” concert experience at Pier 17 in New York on Sunday. The Grammy-nominated artist Kehlani headlined the night, which was held both in person and via live stream. There, the musician sang music from her 2022 album, Blue Water Road, live for the very first time. Served to special attendees were signature cocktails made from the brand’s Essences line, savory snacks, and plenty of music.

Platform held its one-year anniversary party on Wednesday in New York at the Bowery Hotel. Each month, Platform recommends art to purchase alongside a guide that presents guest edits, featuring individuals sharing their favorite pieces at the moment, and artist spotlights. For its anniversary, Platform introduced the Platform Anniversary Capsule, which welcomed back work from some of the brand’s most popular artists from its first year in business. Special attendees of the celebration—including David, Monica, Lucas, and Marlene Zwirner, as well as Nate Lowman and Miguel Angel Payano Jr.—sipped cocktails and danced until the late hours.


Also that night but uptown at its 57th Street location, TOURNEAU | BUCHERER hosted a reception in partnership with Jacob & Co. and Sotheby’s to preview its Jacob & Co. Astronomia Bucherer BLUE timepiece. Hosted by Eytan Stibbe—an Israeli impact investor and philanthropist, who wore the Astronomia on the Axiom Mission—the event welcomed patrons of the brand to cocktails and conversation. The first Triple Axis Tourbillon to leave the earth’s atmosphere, this watch will be included in an auction at Sotheby’s on July 26.
