Haute Horologer Roger Dubuis and their CEO Jean-Marc Pontroué, hosted an exclusive dinner with Dom Pérignon, Haute Living and muse, forever young beauty queen, Stephanie Seymour. Roger Dubuis’ Velvet Haute Couture collection was on view, a glamorous and sexy series of three watches, for which Seymour was the perfect human counterpart.
The fashionable invite-only fête featured an intimate crowd of notables including Seymour’s husband, mogul-collector, Peter Brant, as well as Klaus Biesenbach of MoMA, Russell Simmons, Jonathan Cheban, Haute Living CEO Kamal Hotchandani and Geoff Stults.
The evening started in a cozy 1930s-style section of the new Thompson Hotel with a Dom-soaked cocktail hour. Bubbly was poured out of limited-edition bottles designed by Iris Van Harpenin while guests enjoyed an open raw bar by culinary wiz Michelle Bernstein, who runs Seagrape the hotel’s restaurant. The crowd of 150 VIPs then moved into the courtyard, which had assorted food stations and watches on display.
Style-heavy DJ Hannah Bronfman provided the sound track to an evening that capped off with a live painting performance by Franck Bouroullec and then craft cocktails and dessert back in the cozy villa. What a night!
