Armarium’s Summer Soirée at the Surf Lodge

On a picture perfect summer evening, Armarium hosted a celebration at the Surf Lodge in Montauk in collaboration with Missoni. The occasion toasted the best of summer fashion and the escalating partnership between the luxury rental platform and Italian fashion house. “We are thrilled to celebrate Armarium’s continued partnership with Missoni, extending the life cycle of these iconic pieces and reinforcing Armarium’s position as a leader in the shared economy sector,” said Trisha Gregory, who co-founded Armarium with Alexandra Lind Rose. Missoni, which also boasts an extensive home collection, decked the Surf Lodge with its colorful beach towels, cushions, and candles for a sit-down dinner. In addition to Gregory, guests—most of whom donned Missoni—included Ottavio Missoni, Jr. and Jennifer Missoni, Charlotte Groeneveld, Sarah Hoover, Jessica Hart, Erica Pelosini, Arielle Charnas, Violet Gaynor, Jessie Loeffler Randall, Sasha Benz, Casey Fremont, Stephanie Gottlieb, Marisa Hochberg, and Jayma Cardoso.

New York Premiere of After the Wedding

The Cinema Society celebrated the release of drama After the Wedding with a screening at the new Regal Essex theater on the Lower East Side. The film centers around Isabel (Michelle Williams), who runs an orphanage in the impoverished town of Calcutta, India. With the orphanage’s funding at an all time low, Isabel travels to New York to meet with a potential financial benefactor, Theresa Young (Julianne Moore)—yet her motives are instantly unclear. After the screening, guests, including Williams and Moore, enjoyed an after party at The Crown at Hotel 50 Bowery.

Louis XIII Cognac’s Party in Jersey City

To celebrate its 100 Years campaign, Louis XIII Cognac hosted a party on Manhattan Yacht Club’s bar afloat the Hudson River in Jersey City. Thinking a century ahead and considering the detrimental effects of global warming, the project revolves around a song by Pharrell Williams set to be released in 2117—only if steps have been taken to rescue the planet. Until then, the composition will remain in a safe, which was showcased for the first time ever at this special event. Partygoers supporting the cause included Famke Janssen, Gretchen Mol, Brendan Fallis, Peter Sowagi, and more.

Ilene Joy celebrates Summer at Gurney’s Montauk Resort & Seawater Spa

You can always count on Gurney’s for a fun night out, and last month, the resort was Ilene Joy’s venue of choice for a late summer cocktail party benefiting Animal Haven. To kick off festivities, guests were flown into Montauk by a helicopter provided by Fly Foxtrot. Upon arriving at The Beach Club at Gurney’s, partygoers were treated to a cocktail hour with canapes while perusing collections from Joy’s namesake jewelry line, followed by a silent auction featuring the brand’s one-of-a-kind pieces—among them was Zoe Kravitz’s wedding earrings. Although the line just debuted this year, it has already received widespread praise and a high profile following, including its campaign face, Poppy Delevingne, and Sienna Miller. Later on, DJs Barron and Tessa Hilton performed for the crowd before Pamela Tick took to the stage. Guests included Joy’s daughter and partner Rae Scheer, Jane Krakowski, Kate Bock, Daphne Groeneveld, Megan Williams, Flaviana Matata, Marina Ingvarsson, and Allie Rizzo.
