On Wednesday, December 8th, high-end retailers Gucci and Birks co-hosted a private cocktail party to present a special viewing of ‘La Dolce Vita, 1950-1960: Stars and Celebrities in the Italian fifties.’ This vintage photography collection was curated by Marco Panella and features iconic cinema stars Sophia Loren, Elizabeth Taylor, Marlon Brando, Charlie Chaplin and more. The collection was also shown in its entirety this fall at Rome’s Mercati di Traiano Museum. The night was also a celebration of Gucci’s vintage spirit and heritage, with their ‘Timeless’ campaign, featuring gorgeous and classic timepieces which were on display.
The event was held at The Richmond, which is a great venue space because it is one of Toronto’s few truly eco-friendly spaces. The event was a big success for both the Italian retailer Gucci and Canadian luxury retailer Birks.
