MARKING A DECADE: The fashion crowd isn’t known for their hearty appetites, but star chef Davide Oldani found a way to disprove that at a dinner organized in Milan on Thursday by Italian label Peuterey to celebrate its 10th anniversary. For the occasion, the Magazzini di Porta Genova, a former industrial site located in the Navigli river area, was transformed into a sumptuous black room, where two long dinner tables were decorated with a plethora of red, pink and white roses. The special guest at the event was contemporary artist Terence Koh, who, along with Karim Rashid, redesigned two of the brand’s signature jackets for a limited edition collection.
“It was great to work on this project, also because I had never designed a jacket before,” commented Koh, who also said he took advantage of his first trip to Milan to visit Leonardo Da Vinci’s “Last Supper.”
Joining Peuterey Group president Francesca Lusini were Elisa Sednaoui; actress Valeria Solarino; writer and actor Filippo Timi; fashion designer Marta Ferri; photographer Micol Sabbadini, and retailer Rossana Orlandi. The interior design guru said that during Milan’s upcoming design week she will organize an exhibition with 40 international designers at her “Spazio Rossana Orlandi.” “Among the new entries there will be Antonio Marras, who designed his first home collection, and Enrico Marone Cinzano, who will present a green furniture line,” Orlandi revealed.
