Go inside the worlds of art, fashion, design, and lifestyle.
For this week’s Friday Fête, Whitewall takes you through some of this week’s events, including celebrations with Lenny Kravitz and Dom Pérignon, Audemars Piguet and Material Good, and Kiton.
Last Friday night in New York, we attended a long-awaited event at Skylight Modern—the opening of Lenny Kravitz’s photography exhibition, “Assemblage,” inspired by Dom Pérignon. Named earlier this year as the brand’s creative director, Kravitz presented an array of black-and-white images featuring familiar faces like his daughter, Zoë Kravitz, Alexander Wang, Susan Sarandon, Harvey Keitel, Benjamin Millepied, Hidetoshi Nakata, and Abbey Lee Kershaw. Shot on a Leica with bright flash, in a home in Los Angeles decorated by Lenny Kravitz Design Studio, the images evoke a Studio 154-esque vibe with an ode to the champagne house’s new 2008 vintage blend—the last for the house by its Chef de Cav, Richard Geoffroy. The exhibition is open to the public through tomorrow night at 8 p.m.
Last night on Wooster Street, Audemars Piguet celebrated its third year of partnership with, and at, jewelry boutique Material Good. Redefining the shopping experience with innovative displays, art work-lined walls, a bar, and games and designer furniture in the space, Material Good celebrates a 21st century focus on retail. To celebrate, musician John Mayer (wearing an Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Tourbillon Extra-Thin model) performed an acoustic set for special guests like: Material Good Co-Founders, Rob Ronen and Michael Herman; Audemars Piguet CEO, Francois-Henry Bennahmias; PGA player and Audemars Piguet ambassador, Ian Poulter; and more. Closing out the night, guests enjoyed Perrier-Jouët champagne and a DJ set by Alex Merrell.
Also last night at Kiton on 54th Street, the brand hosted a celebration for the launch of KNT—a new urban wear collection by the brand. In the blue hue-lit space, guests mingled while checking out the new collection, including footwear and jackets. Alongside the unveiling of its new campaign shot by film director Francesco Carrozzini, the night featured a DJ set by Guillaume Viau, attended by special guests like Andrea Colombo, Bryan Griffin, Giancarlo Valle, Ian Crumm, and Igee Okafor.
