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’…..

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.
