Friday Fête: Louis Vuitton x Grace Coddington’s Pop-Up, Moschino [tv] H&M Runway Show, and More

By Pearl Fontaine

October 29, 2018

For this edition of Friday Fête, we’re looking back on a few of last week’s top events, openings, and launches in New York City.

On October 18, the third annual edition of House of Peroni took place, hosted in collaboration by Peroni Nastro Azzurro and the not-for-profit Art Production Fund (APF). Celebrating forward thinking creatives by bringing the world of style to beer, guests like APF’s Casey Fremont, Olivia Palermo, and Ezra Williams sipped Peroni in Jenny Sabin’s luminous, immersive installation, LUSTER, which happened to double as a full-service bar. The pop-up also featured a delicious candy creation by Maayan Zilberman, inspired by The Garden of Eden, called “Glass Garden Lost and Found: Of Healing and Knowledge.”

Last Monday night, Ruinart Champagne and New Museum hosted a dinner at the Canal Street Arts District—a newly transformed space for emerging creatives developed by NEW INC’s Wallplay. After dinner, guests like Zoe Buckman, Terry Gates, Alexandra Bell, and Lily Kwong, enjoyed Ruinart’s newly released Dom Ruinart 2007 while exploring the museum’s current exhibitions.

Also on Monday, Americans for the Arts held its 2018 National Arts Award ceremony, this year honoring Alliance for Young Artists & Writers, Justin Peck, Ai Weiwei, Mavis Staples, and Ann Ziff for their contributions to the arts. The celebration, held at Cipriani on 42nd Street, started with a cocktail reception and was followed by dinner and a ceremony where Zac Posen, Stephen Colbert, John Lewis, Renée Fleming, Ann Ziff, Tiler Peck, and Alexandra Munroe each presented an award to the evening’s honorees. The evening included a performance by Jake Golbas and an homage to Justin Peck, choreographed by Caleb Tiecher.

On Tuesday, October 23, designer Max Poglia and Cooper & Thief Cellarmasters hosted an artisanal leather workshop at Poglia’s studio in Bushwick, gearing up for the quickly oncoming holiday season. At the workshop, all attendees experienced a hands-on leatherworking lesson from Poglia himself, leaving with a customized “Poglia Porter” bag made during the session. The evening also included a first look at the holiday edition Cooper & Thief x Poglia corkscrew and tasty snacks paired with Cooper & Thief’s barrel-aged wine.

On Wednesday evening, designer Jeremy Scott’s Moschino [tv] H&M collection made its debut on a billboard-adorned catwalk reminiscent of Times Square. Walking the runway, we saw a cast of models featuring the Hadid siblings, Winnie Harlow, and Naomi Campbell. In the audience, Kiersey Clemons, Coco Rocha, and Bebe Rexha were seated in the front row, all dressed in looks from the collection. Once the presentation concluded, Diplo took the stage, kicking off the rest of the night, which included an augmented reality fashion experience and an exclusive pop-up store.

That night, Missoni’s creative director Angela Missoni presented a first look at, “Model! Pleasure! Artist! Alive!” the latest installation in her Surface Conversion Project. Curated by Francesco Urbano Ragazzi, the exhibition of Cheryl Donegan’s work features a series of colorful rolls of fabric that take over the floors and spaces in the Missoni boutique, as well as three videos titled Flushing, I Still Want to Drown, and Blood Sugar. The installation, presented in partnership with Apalazzo Gallery, will be on display at the brand’s Madison Avenue location through January 31, 2019.

And on Thursday in the Meatpacking District, an exclusive pop-up store dedicated to Louis Vuitton’s collaboration with Grace Coddington was unveiled. At the opening, guests like Riley Keough, Justin Theroux, Sofia Coppola, Sienna Miller, Ms. Coddington herself, and Louis Vuitton’s creative director Nicolas Ghesquière, previewed the “Catogram” collection. The capsule collection includes a series of adorable accessories, shoes, leather goods, and clothing, each featuring whimsical illustrations of Coddington and Ghesquière’s pets—all hand-drawn by Coddington.
