Gc Rising Stars Cocktail Party

On the evening of August 8, Gc Timepieces celebrated the launch of their Moments of Smart Luxury campaign in New York. The event was held at the chic Robert Restaurant in The Museum of Arts and Design. The guests of honor were the Smart Luxury campaign’s newly named Rising Stars; singer/songwriter Shania Taub, artist Moises Ramirez and photographer Pino Gomes.

Guests were treated to a stunning view out onto Central Park from across Columbus Circle, while inside the brand’s timepieces sparkled throughout the room. TV personality Natalie Rotman hosted the evening, which featured a live performance by Shania Taub on piano. Following Taub’s set, guests took in the original work on display from Moises Ramirez (pictured below). The atmosphere, a creative combination of the fashion and art worlds,  was beautifully complemented by the wall-length mural of Pino Gomes’ photographs from the  Smart Luxury campaign. The well-heeled crowd included guests such as design duo Brian Wolk and Claude Morais, musician Simon Collins (son of Phil Collins) and Vanity Fair columnist George Wayne.

Gc Timepieces is a Swiss company whose Smart Luxury campaign stands for their commitment to making luxury accessible. The campaign’s Rising Stars were chosen with this mantra in mind, as the company aims to introduce their critically acclaimed works to a wider audience. Expect to be hearing more about both the company and its rising stars.
