Go inside the worlds of art, fashion, design, and lifestyle.
During this busy Spring, Whitewall is staying active with releases, collaborations, and events happening around the city.
Last weekend, Whitewall stopped by an installment of the month-long “Bring Down the Walls” by Creative Time—a public art project that gives voice to formerly incarcerated citizens through arts and educational programming. Presented by Phil Collins and The Fortune Society, the event kicked off during the day with hundreds of New Yorkers attending workshops on radical thought, where they examined the expansion of punitive and incarceration practices beyond prison walls. The evening brought on MikeQ’s House of Vogue Ball dancing battles, where participants danced until dawn. Musician FKA Twigs also made a guest appearance as a judge for the competition. “Bring Down the Walls” is open every Saturday and Sunday in May.
Last night, we enjoyed a bit of Puglia in New York to celebrate the second iteration of Natuzzi Italia and Marcel Wanders Studio’s “Agronomist” collection, revealed for NYCxDesign. The evening, full of creative designs and Italian culture, was complete with the unveiling of the studio’s new limited-edition pieces, including the Furrow sofa, the Barrow coffee table, the Crate cabinet, and the Peacock carpet.
Also last night, we caught up with TAG Heuer at the brand’s 5th Avenue flagship store to celebrate the launch of its new campaign with Cara Delevingne. Shot by David Yarrow in South Africa, the campaign highlights the brand’s Lady Camera collection. After the flagship visit, friends of the brand joined Delevigne in Times Square to welcome in the new campaign’s billboard.
And at Primo’s in TriBeCa, we joined YOOX to celebrate the relaunch of its “Art + Design” category on the brand’s website. The virtual gallery showcases both seasoned collectors and new art lovers, as well as highlights unique, iconic, and limited-edition pieces. Guests like YOOX’s Giuseppe Tamola, Colby Mugrabi, Jenny Walton, Shala Monroque, and Oroma Elewa joined others for the festivities, indulging in cocktails by Primo’s and a dinner menu by Poppy’s Catering.
