Friday Fête: Louis Vuitton’s Men’s Fragrance Launch, MoMA’s Party in the Garden, and More

In this week’s Friday Fete, Whitewall takes you to some of the best events that happened this week in New York.

Last weekend, we celebrated Jonathan Adler’s Chelsea Passage pop-up shop at Barneys New York, in celebration of the designer’s 25th anniversary. Barneys New York was the first store to order Adler’s pottery in 1993, so he’s back, and this time with exclusive products including pottery, furniture, and wall art. The pop-up also celebrated Adler and spouse Simon Doonan’s episode on this week’s The Barneys Podcast—talking about relationships, adventures in Peru, and the evolution of the Jonathan Adler brand.

Wednesday evening brought us to Louis Vuitton on Fifth Avenue for the launch of its first-ever men’s fragrance collection. Featuring five unique scents (L’Immensité, Nouveau Monde, Orage, Sur La Route, and Au Hasard), the fragrances were created by the house’s master perfumer, Jacques Cavallier Belletrud, in Grasse, France—the epicenter of perfume making.

Yesterday in Rome, ISAIA opened its third store in Italy. Located at 68, Via Bocca di Leone, the boutique follows the stores in Milan and Capri with dedication to heritage, culture, and quality. Designed by Ferrari Architetti, the space features art and artifacts sourced by interior designer Alberta Saladino. The new boutique, featuring five main areas, offers a made-to-measure room, a tailor shop, the iconic Vesuvio VIP room, and more.

And last night, we stopped by MoMA for its annual Party in the Garden. The night honored philanthropist Agnes Gund, celebrating her dedication to the art world as a patron, collector, longtime trustee, and over 50 years involvement with the museum. The party also celebrated Studio Visit: Selected Gifts from Agnes Gund (April 29–July 22). Special guests like Klaus Biesenbach, Sarah Arison, Mickalene Thomas, Diane Sawyer, Marina Abramovic, Mark Ronson, and Carolina Herrera joined in on the festivities, culminating in a musical performance by St. Vincent.

This morning, we caught a preview look at “Place”—the Homepolish pop-up at Saks Fifth Avenue on the first floor. Homepolish designer, Emma Beryl, designed the space, and crystal company, Crystal Criminals, and custom pillow company, Stitchroom, welcomed guests for home décor demonstrations and breakfast treats. In addition to the pop-up, and available in Place, Homepolish created a printed zine highlighting some of its top projects, limited edition tote bags, and illustrated posters by artists like Laura SupnikAli MacdonaldLauren Kaelin, and Maria Ines Gul.

And tonight, we’ll be stopping by PUBLIC hotel to check out its recently opened Bowery Garden. The backyard extension of Chef Jean GeorgesPUBLIC Kitchen offers guests a small escape from the bustling streets of Manhattan, and a new spring dinner menu inspired by the chef’s worldwide travels. Fresh dishes embody the chef’s signature flavors at Kitchen, produced by a wood-burning oven and wood-burning grill.
