Max Mara and The Daily Summer hosted an intimate poolside luncheon yesterday at the Southampton home of fashion’s most dynamic mother-daughter duo, Irene Albright and Marina Albright to celebrate the Italian luxury brand’s SS20 and PF20 collection. The event was co-hosted by The Daily’s Hamptons editor, Lizzi Bickford.
Set within the Albright’s pastel-hued, hydrangea-filled gardens, guests toured Max Mara’s colorful assortment of gorgeous gowns, silky blouses, statement skirts and signature outerwear while sipping traditional Italian cocktails –with a twist– prepared by the number one World’s Best Bar, Dante.
The small gathering included a select group of top tastemakers including Jessica Wang, Sai de Silva, Mary Leest and Tinamarie Clark who enjoyed a gourmet, locally sourced meal inspired by Max Mara’s rich Italian heritage, prepared by celebrated Hamptons farm-to-table restaurant Rosie’s. The menu items were perfectly paired with JNSQ Rosé Cru and Sauvignon blanc as well as Josh Cellars Prosecco.
Throughout the afternoon, chicsters were invited to build a bespoke bouquet with a master florist at the event’s Flowerbx pop-up, which guests took home as a souvenir along with a Max Mara silk scarf and scented candle, a bottle of JNSQ rosé and a Dante bottled Negroni.
