Friday Fête: Gucci Toasts to Beauty, Dior and Sotheby’s Celebrate Art, and More

By Eliza Jordan

March 6, 2020

For this week’s edition of Friday Fête, we’re sharing details from this week’s best events, including celebrations with Gucci, Dior, The Armory Show, and more.

Last Friday at the Gucci Wooster store in New York, Gucci hosted a celebration for Antwaun Sargent’s new book entitled The New Black Vanguard. Leading us through the photography work of fifteen artists, the book celebrates art and fashion photos that are contemporary and vibrant. Guests joined to toast Sargent, chat about photography in 21st century, and have copies signed.

On Monday at Capitale in New York, The Bronx Museum of the Arts hosted its annual fundraising benefit—the Visionary Duos Gala. This year, the night honored Desus and Mero, Henry and Kathleen Chalfant, Diana Al-Hadid and Jon Lott, and U.S. Congressman José E. Serrano and New York Senator José M. Serrano. Within the regal space, guests also enjoyed unique centerpieces by AIM Fellowship. This year, AIM Fellowship celebrates its 40th anniversary, presenting over 30 artists who created stunning centerpieces for the gala to complement those by John Goodman of PFI. A live installation by Lucia Hierro was on view, too, as Maluca and Young Paris gave guests a special performance.

Also that night but in Paris, Ermenegildo Zegna and Fear of God hosted an event to welcome their latest collaboration—a capsule line apart of Ermenegildo Zegna’s Fall/Winter 2020 collection. Ermenegildo Zegna Artistic Director Alessandro Sartori joined Fear of God Founder Jerry Lorenzo for a unisex line of contemporary classics. To welcome the looks, guests gathered at Hôtel de Coulanges—first guarded by large campaign images on sheath screens, parting for an entrance—to explore the new pieces and toast to its upcoming launch.

On Wednesday at Sotheby’s, Dior and the auction house welcomed guests to explore a new auction show curated by the house’s Men’s Artistic Director, Kim Jones. The Contemporary Curated show, on auction today, features more than 250 works hand-picked by Jones—including works by Cindy Sherman, David Hockney, Ed Ruscha, Kerry James Marshall, Nick Cave, and Richard Prince. At the cocktail reception, a playlist created by Honey Dijon spaces as special guests mingled. Following the reception, extra special guests ventured downtown Indochine for a private dinner co-hosted by Jones, as well as Charlotte Van Dercook, the Head of Sotheby’s Contemporary Curated sale, and Edward Tang, Director of Sotheby’s Global Fine Arts Division.

On Thursday afternoon in Los Angeles, Gucci hosted a festive event in partnership with Sephora to celebrate beauty of all kinds. Toasting to the launch of its new Gucci Mascera L’Obscur, guests like campaign star Dani Miller, Beck, Zoe Bleu Arquette, Susie Bubble, Yana Davis, Langley Fox, Diana Gordon, Myles Hendrik, Jeffertitti, Kilo Kish, and Thomas de Kluyver previewed the Gucci Beauty Network Studios—an experiential pop-up where visitors are invited to discover the world of Gucci Beauty—and sipped cocktails. Guests also enjoyed DJ sets by Dani Miller, Jeffertitti and Rainey Qualley, as they danced into the night.

And last night for The Armory Show in New York, an invite-only crowd raised glasses of champagne to celebrate June Edmonds—the recipient of The AWARE Prize. The fair’s Executive Director, Nicole Berry, and Deputy Director, Eliza Osborne, joined the Prize’s co-founder Camillle Morineau in the Landmark Penthouse atop Steinway Hall to announce the news. “We’re so proud to present The AWARE Prize to June Edmonds, on an international stage like The Armory Show,” said Morineau. “Edmonds was unanimously selected by the jurors, who coalesced around the discovery of her new Flag Paintings—a breakthrough body of never-before seen work by the artist presented by Luis de Jesus Los Angeles at this year’s Armory Show.”
