Friday Fête: PAMM Honors Teresita Fernández, Kate Spade Celebrates Spring, and Faith Connexion x Kappa Parties

By Eliza Jordan

March 23, 2018

This week, we partook in a number of art, fashion, and lifestyle celebrations. To spotlight a few, we’re bringing you a Friday Fête that’s full of fun new announcements and releases.

On Monday in Miami at the Pérez Art Museum Miami (PAMM), over 900 special guests gathered for the fourth annual PAMM Art of the Party fundraiser. Presented by Valentino, the night honored leading contemporary artist Teresita Fernández and philanthropist Patricia M. Papper for their outstanding dedication to the arts. In addition to several of Fernández’s works belonging to PAMM’s collection, her Fire (America) is currently on view at the museum. And Papper, who was a founding member of the museum in 1983, was acknowledged for her service of over a decade as president on the board of trustees, was also noted for her extensive support for several of PAMM’s major exhibitions. After dinner, cocktails, and dancing under the stars, the night concluded in raising over $1.3 million—a total that went directly back to the museum’s arts education program.

On Tuesday in New York at Rockefeller Center, Kate Spade celebrated the first day of Spring with The Bloom Bloom kickoff—a shopping event series hosted by three local artists (Danielle Kroll, Brian Kaspr, and Emily Isabella) that were custom painting handbags. In addition to enjoying cookies and cocktails, invited guests like actresses Kate Bosworth, Kate Mara, and Victoria Justice got a first look at the traveling shop, which will travel nationwide to the brand’s top stores during until April 10. There, guests can get a taste of a local artist’s touch with a personalized illustration on a handbag.

Later that night, we traveled to the ping-pong hot spot SPiN, where Faith Connexion was celebrating the last of three collaborations with Kappa. Following a small seated dinner catered by Cipriani, the brands debuted a special video directed by and featuring rapper Vic Mensa, who we’ve previously seen in the brand’s Spring/Summer 2017 look book. For the newest collection, Mensa took his creativity to the screen to direct a video that payed homage to artists’ relationships with their muses in the early 1980s. After dinner, guests played ping-pong and enjoyed 1800 Tequila cocktails while Jinx DJed through the night.
