On May 1, the American Friends of the Louvre’s Young Patrons Circle, along with St-Germain, hosted the seventh annual spring gala at avant-garde art venue Bleecker Street Arts Club in New York City. This year’s theme, Victoire!, celebrated one of the Louvre’s most iconic masterpieces, “The Winged Victory of Samothrace,” which is currently undergoing expert conservation at the Louvre and will be back on display in full splendor at the museum this summer.
In keeping with the decidedly French atmosphere, the well-heeled art enthusiasts sipped on inspired cocktails from St-Germain, including the French Gimlet (St-Germain, vodka and lime juice) and the signature St-Germain Cocktail (sparkling wine, club soda and St-Germain), while DJ du jour Natalie Dodge provided the evening’s energetic soundtrack. Notable guests included: H.I.H. Prince Napoléon, Countess Olympia Arco, Nicolas Niarchos, Christina Livanos, Colby Jordan, Susi Kenna, Grant Kettering, Julia Loomis and Larissa, and Max Whitney.
