In this week’s edition of Friday Fête, Whitewall brings you inside recent happenings like Moncler’s 70th anniversary celebration, a Saint Laurent and SUSHI PARK collaboration, and More.
On September 20 in New York, the eighth edition of Chanel‘s Women’s Filmmaker Luncheon was held at Locanda Verde—the annual “Through Her Lens: The Tribeca Chanel Women’s Filmmaker Program.”Hosted to recognize the importance of supporting women’s voices and inclusion, those in attendance represented its very cause—from Katie Holmes and Zosia Mamet to Christy Turlington and Riva Marker.
In a majestic takeover of the iconic Piazza Del Duomo in Milan, Monclercelebrated its 70th anniversary on the evening of September 25. In an unprecedented public event that launched a 70-day program of global festivities, Moncler united nearly 18,000 spectators and paid homage to its classic Maya jacket—a revitalized historical design. The extraordinary show, choreographed by the master Sadeck Berrabah (Sadeck Waff), opened with the prima ballerina of Teatro alla Scala di Milano, Virna Toppi, and showcased the energetic contemporary style and creative expertise of 1952 artists, which symbolized the founding year of Moncler. For friends of the brand in attendance—including Alessandra Ambrosio, Salehe Bembury, Hiroshi Fujiwara, Future, Matilde Gioli, Anne Hathaway, Elsa Hosk, Carmen Jordá, JR, and Colin Kaepernick—artists “painted” the square white while performing in exclusive Moncler Maya 70 jackets. Dancers, musicians, choir members, and models electrified the square and introduced a jubilant new chapter in the Moncler legacy with a burst of confetti.
From September 28 to October 7, Saint Laurenthosted a SUSHI PARK culinary experience at its Rive Droite store in Paris with premier Chef Peter Park. Renowned for its immaculate omakase and chef’s choice menu, the Los Angeles-based Japanese restaurant team united with Saint Laurent creative director Anthony Vaccarello (a SUSHI PARK regular)for the first time. In the spirit of collaboration, Park invited friend and ceramicist Daeyong Kim to create a line of ceramics exclusively for the special event.
On the evening of September 29, Maseratiraised a glass to its new Milan boutique with a fashionable and star-studded soirée. Friends from diverse industries—like the actor and philanthropist Jon Kortajarena, theItalian pianist and composer Dardust, and the Egyptian model and social entrepreneur Elisa Sednaoui—came together to enjoy a preview of the opulent space alongside culinary delights by Michelin-starred chef Massimiliano Alajmo and beats by DJ Scilla Ruffo di Calabria. The innovative space was co-created with New York-based design firmEight Inc., fusing the elegance of a tailor’s atelier with the energy of a creative workshop. The luxury sports cars are warmly lit like fine art in a gallery, redefining the car showroom as we know it. The store also introduced Maserati-lovers to the ultimate personalized experience, known as Fuoriserie, with a new program that allows clients to create a one-of-a-kind vehicle from the inside out that’s inspired by their own creativity and individuality. Maserati’s Milan debut ushers in a parade of stores in major cities like Hong Kong, Shanghai, and Berlin by the end of the year, with more to come in 2023.
