On Thursday night in Beverly Hills, Calif., designer to the stars Jeremy Scott proved that when it comes to hosting over-the-top, unforgettable bashes, he’s the ultimate king. The Moschino creative director teamed up with Longchamp to welcome a mix of fashion lovers and celebrities into a VIP celebration of their 10th anniversary of handbag collaborations.
Held inside the architecturally stunning Sheats Goldstein residence, the bash also saw the launch of their new 10th anniversary handbag (below), which pays homage to Hollywood with graphics made to look like a Hollywood postcard—fitting, Scott said, since they held the party in Tinseltown.
As for why he wanted to keep collaborating with the luxury handbag brand, Scott—who rocked a coordinating ensemble from his last collection topped off with a black tuxedo jacket and his signature sparkly Moschino crown—told us, “I just love the Le Pliage. It’s such an iconic bag and it’s the perfect canvas for me to really create… I love being able to put my thumbprint on that.”
Longchamp’s Creative Director Sophie Delafontaine (below, right) was equally as enthused to have Scott a part of their team, telling us if she could sum up his relationship with the brand with one word it would be “respect.” She added, “When we met a little more than 10 years ago, I fell in love with [Jeremy’s] talent, his sense of humor, his freshness, his very optimistic mood and spirit.”
Delafontaine wasn’t the only one gushing over Scott. His longtime friends Kirsten Dunst and Freida Pinto (above, left) were both on hand to celebrate his work and did the same, with Dunst (in a poppy-covered Rodarte dress) telling InStyle, “He’s just been such a kind person and such an inspiration creatively that his art and what he’s done in this collaboration has been so interesting and fun.”
Pinto, who stunned in a red Amanda Wakeley dress and blue Longchamp clutch, echoed those sentiments, telling us she loved the collection because, “I feel like it’s a mix of something that’s still very classical topped off with a little bit of Jeremy Scott touch.”
At the fête, guests mixed and mingled inside a cocktail party, sipping spicy margaritas and Champagne, and munching on Manchego grilled cheese bites as they enjoyed stunning views of the city. Once that wrapped up, guests and hosts Scott, Delafontaine, and Longchamp’s CEO Jean Cassegrain headed down to the club at the residence, where a DJ spun hip hop hits and a big "Happy 10th Anniversary" cake was brought out for Scott. A sweet ending to a fashionably sweet night.
