As a part of Hublot’s Hublot Loves Summer Series, Jean-Francois Sberro, the President of Hublot North America, invited a group of VIP collectors and dear friends of the brand in the Hamptons for an evening under the stars at Jean-Georges at Topping Rose House’s private outdoor seating. 

Guests were greeted upon arrival with premiere wine from Wine Access and canapés à la Jean-Georges, including Crispy Salmon Sushi, Shrimp Satay, and Black Truffle and Fontina Pizza. As the guests indulged in welcoming cocktails, they also received an exclusive look at Hublot’s watches on display, which were lit beautifully in glass vitrines throughout the evening.

The tablescape gave the nod to the iconic Hamptons dinner party aesthetic with Hublot’s pristine branding paired with stunning white orchid arrangements and candles by Anastasia Casale of Sag Harbor Florist, which stunned against the greenery lining the table. Before dinner was served, Haute Living CEO Kamal Hothcandani warmly welcomed the guests and introduced Jean-Francois Sberro to give thanks to everyone who attended. This dinner marks the first Hublot and Haute Living event since 2019, and Hothcandani and Sberro were thrilled to be back in person celebrating the brands and Chef Jean-Georges.
