A Successful and Super Chic Soirée

I was happy to see so many wonderful people come out to support the Soirée au Louvre benefit—it was a truly delightful affair. I had the great pleasure of chatting with the super stylish Cynthia Rowley, one of the main sponsors of the event. The committee girls looked ravishing dressed in their Rowley frocks. Our host, His Excellency, Ambassador Gérard Araud, was charming, and with great aplomb, created the perfect aura of congeniality and inclusiveness amongst a rather diverse group of people. Fantastic food and Grey Goose (my favorite vodka) ensured a properly festive mood. And lest one forget the highlight of the event, we were given a special preview of Nan Goldin’s Louvre work—which was, of course, simply sublime!

Enjoying the evening, I’m sporting a Tom Ford “Spencer”sport jacket in rose silk linen basket weave, white cotton french cuff shirt, and grey and ivory silk tie, Seaman Schepps black pearl cuff links, grey silk pocket square by Turnbull and Asser, pale grey light weight wool pants by Paul Smith, Cartier “Tank Divan” from Raj Tolaram vintage Gucci python belt with silver double horse head buckle, saddle leather loafers by Tom Ford and my fragrance is Creed Imperial Millesime.

Pop-Up shops are all the rage; there’s a certain excitement knowing that a shop will only be in existence for a very short time.

My friends at the super chic Frederick P. Victoria & Sons decided to work with this concept, creating quite a stir with the opening of a pop-up shop at the wonderful Silver Peacock boutique located at 1110 Park Avenue New here in New York City.

The Victorias have brought to their Silver Peakcock pop-up location several trucks loads of fine pieces—some that have not been seen for many years, along with many recent creations. Their carefully curated selection provides the perfect mix of must-have table-top and home accessories.

I’m sharing just a few of my favorites to lure you there. The FPV pop-up shop will only be in existence until the 15th of May—possibly a tiny bit longer—so do make a point to have a look; this is the first time since 2009 that there’s been a FPV shop in Manhattan!

Stackable armchairs (above) in an innovative design inspired by an early 20th century German design. These sculptural pieces are both functional and quite pleasing to the eye. The carved wall lights are models originally produced for Syrie Maugham in the late 40’s and are available in different sizes. The concentric circle baluster elements are vintage architectural pieces found by Tony Victoria. A similar baluster design can be found in the facade decoration of the roof of the Colony Club.

I’m featured (top) with a delightful Louis XV heart-shaped open arm chair, and behind me resting a top a large modernist four door cabinet—an eagle candelabra inspired by an eagle from the Versailles gardens. Frederick Victoria bought the form in plaster which was used as a model for everything from candelabras to console tables.

WIJW Hits German Television


WIJW is on German television!

Our lovely host, Niels Ruf, has been a major figure in German television for some time, having had his own late night show “Die Niels Ruf Show,” as well as having hosted German MTV – With a propensity for cutting edge entertainment, it’s not surprising that he also happened to have created one of the first blogs in Germany! (see “99 days of 99”)

You’ll have noticed I’m not wearing my usual Dior frames since guest and host on the Looki-Looki TV show are both outfitted with video camera glasses! I’m sure you’ll agree this does produce some truly unusual and oft times quite funny first person views throughout the piece.

We’ll be sure to bring you more from Ruf – until then, enjoy the show! Tschüs!

I’m sporting a royal blue cotton sateen jacket, a Pucci-esq print shirt, black patent belt with silver leather trim and grommets and black leather tote all by Gucci, silvery gray silk pocket square from Turnbull and Asser, Lanvin sand colored suede and gray patent leather sneakers, Cartier “Tank Divan” from Raj Tolaram and my fragrance is Creed Royal Water.
