FLIGHT CREW: Private air fleet VistaJet and Moncler joined forces to host a dinner at Loulou’s in London to celebrate their collaboration on Monday night. Jetsetters Remo Ruffini, Moncler’s owner and creative director, and VistaJet founder Thomas Flohr formed their creative partnership over a game of squash in St Barth’s.
“Remo is an old friend and we spend a lot of time together in St Barth’s,” explained Flohr after dinner. “He asked me where my pilots were flying to and when I told him ‘Siberia,’ he said it must be so cold there and asked me what they were wearing when they land.” Obviously, the ideal answer was Moncler.
Ruffini and Flohr were joined by Edie Campbell and boyfriend Otis Ferry, Mary Charteris, Zafar Rushdie, Caroline Sieber, Elisabeth von Thurn und Taxis, Marissa Montgommery and Nicholas Kirkwood among others.
Over dinner, art collector, dealer and auctioneer Simon de Pury, who sold his share in Philips de Pury in December, sang the praises of L.A.-based artist Sterling Ruby, whose paintings appeared in dresses on Raf Simons’ first couture collection for Dior last July. “It’s great to see artists and designers collaborating,” he said.
