Behind the scenes at Bulgari’s 50th anniversary party at New York’s Aman Jazz Club – WWD

Bulgari is celebrating its golden anniversary – and what better way to mark the occasion than with a party at New York’s hottest new club, which is also a block from its Fifth Avenue flagship. ?

The Italian jewelry house took over the intimate Aman Jazz Club “speakeasy” on Wednesday to toast 50 years in business with a host of the brand’s closest and dearest supporters. As they descended a flight of stairs, guests were greeted by a crate of limited-edition Bulgari pieces, available exclusively at the New York flagship, before entering the sun club.

Peter Marino, who redesigned Bulgari’s flagship several years ago, chatted with Bulgari’s President for North America, Hervé Perrot, who then led the architect by the hand to a VIP table where Nicola Bulgari held court. Katie Holmes arrived soon after, followed by “Black Panther” star Danai Gurira. “You caught me smiling too much,” the actress said, smiling as she was greeted in the dark space by the flash of photography; seated, she posed gallantly with her Bulgari wares strategically in view. Actress Leyna Bloom found pride of place at a cocktail table directly in front of the stage, where Brian Newman, trumpeter and creative director of the venue, led a lively jazz set.

Other guests included artist couple Arden Wohl and Jonah Freeman, Duckie Thot, Ivy Getty, Lucas Jagger, models Jacquelyn Jablonski and Olivia Ponton and a group of stylists and editors, including Marion Fasel and Lynn Yaeger, who co-wrote Bulgari’s 50th anniversary book “B Is Bulgari”. .” The title of the book has also been translated into a specialty cocktail, served with a trademark ice cube.

The evening’s festivities culminated with a performance by Dev Hynes, who was joined on stage by Ian Isiah and Eva Tonklin. The DJ duo Angel + Dren were on hand to close the evening.

While many in the room were loaned jewelry for the celebration, no guest was left empty-handed at the end of the night. Upon ascending the orange-lit stairwell, which led to 56th Street, guests received a Bulgari gift bag. A copy of “B Is for Bulgari” was hidden inside.
