IWC aficionados gathered at White Box, a contemporary art gallery space located at MAP @ Publika, to celebrate IWC Schaffhausen and Peter Lindbergh’s “A night in Portofino”.
A brilliant photographic collaboration between the legendary photographer, the renowned Swiss watchmaker and IWC’s Friends of the Brand.
Guests were treated like stars for the night, escorted by models dressed in the style of the 50s down a long red carpet lined with flashes of more than a dozen cameras by paparazzi photographers. The entrance of White Box was transformed into a glitzy and glamorous set depicting the famous grand cinema complete with the red carpet, welcoming guests being wined and dined, musicians serenading with Italian tunes, and silhouette cutting and portrait artists sketching and sculpting their portrait as a momento to take away from this glamorous beautiful evening.
