A chic Givenchy lunch to celebrate its Bridgehampton pop-up
Givenchy is bringing a European laissez faire energy to the Hamptons, thanks to its Givenchy Plage shopping installation at Topping Rose House. To mark the moment, the luxury brand transformed the beloved five-star hotel into an immersive experience, inspired by Monsieur de Givenchy’s Riviera retreat, Le Clos Fiorentina. Over lunch, guests got up close with the Givenchy Plage collection, designed by Matthew M. Williams. A first for the brand, the vacation-ready offering speaks equally to California cool (Williams’ home state) and the brand’s French roots, with everything from linen sets and cutout bathing suits to raffia and straw bags and macramé detailing. The intimate affair welcomed Rachel Zoe, Christie Brinkley, Coco Bassey, Dee Poku, Casey Fremont, Elizabeth Kurpis, Jessica Wang, Joanna Hillman, Lindsay Bardwill, Mei Kwok, Molly Sims, Sai de Silva, and Givenchy president of the Americas, Valerie Leon, among others. The pop-up is open for your perusal until July 14, every day from 11AM to 8PM.
