9th May 2018, Hotel Martinez, Cannes
It is now a tradition that Chopard hosts an exclusive soirée for stylish gentlemen during the Cannes Film Festival. Before the plethora of extravagant evenings dedicated to the ladies on the Red Carpet, the masculine universe got a look in.
Men of taste got to strut their stuff at the first soiree hosted by the House of Chopard to kick off the festivities in Cannes for 2018. It paid tribute to the men’s watch collection.
Everyone played the game of ‘Identify the Watch’…..
Caroline Scheufele was joined by her brother and fellow Co-President of the family business, Karl-Friedrich Scheufele, in hosting the most stylish gentlemen on the Croisette.
All the glitterati, actors and socialites replete with elegance, including Christoph Waltz, Luke Evans, James Norton, Mads Mikkelsen, Liao Fan, Gang Dong Wong, George Spencer-Churchill, Oliver Cheshire, Toby Huntington-Whiteley, Colin Dack, Alex Libby, Richard Ampaw, Josh Parkinson and Victor Turpin, as well as Julianne Moore, Marion Cotillard, Isabelle Adjani, Celina Jade, Miao Miao, Araya Hargate, Lady Violet Manners, Lady Sabrina Percy, Leomie Anderson and Victoria Bonia attended this rendezvous, now in it’s fourth consecutive edition.
Guests enjoyed a cocktail reception in a plush setting recreating the atmosphere of an authentic London private club, with the added bonus of a view of the legendary Croisette. This prestigious event was amply supplied with various whiskeys, Roederer champagne and FAIR cocktails inspired by the L.U.C collections.
New York trumpeter Chris Norton and his quartet performed some scintillating jazz.
Later, American DJ Alexandra Richards spun the turntables, enticing guests to dance all through the night.
A good time was had by all…..
How did you do in spotting the watches?
