Shining And Dining With Swarovski And Delphine-Charlotte Parmentier
(NEW YORK) Far below the depths of Lafayette Street, Swarovski pulled together a select group of jewelry lovers to toast Delphine-Charlotte Parmentier‘s 20th year of bauble design. Set in the Cave du Vin, located below the Lafayette resto, an intimate dinner started off with the ultimate cocktail accessory: tons and tons of sparkling jewels. A retrospective of Parmentier’s work was casually strewn around the room, including a jewel studded face mask and a deconstructed version of a necklace she designed for Balenciaga. Parmentier’s previous collections have included bijoux crafted for Lanvin, Chloé, Thierry Mugler, and Christian Lacroix, but last night she showed off her own “Metis” anniversary collection, created with Swarovski crystals.
Julia Restoin Roitfeld played host for the eve, welcoming the likes of Olivier Theyskens, Elettra Wiedemann, Margarita Levieva, Wes Gordon, Claire Distenfeld, Claire Courtins-Clarins, James LaForce, and Hannah Bronfman to the dinner. Following countless flutes of champagne, guests dispersed to three separate tables dotted with romantic white roses. Following the appetizer course, Theyskens toasted the lady of the evening: “As a designer, it’s a dream to work with [Parmentier]. She’s one of the best.” Guests raised their glasses again as Parmentier expressed her gratitude for the evening and all of those who participated in making it possible. Over the course of the evening, the likes of Natalie Joos, Chelsea Leyland, Charlotte Ronson, Genevieve Jones, and Leandra Medine also trickled in until the last bite of dessert was devoured.
