On February 25th, Vladimir Restoin Roitfeld and Andy Valmorbida, in collaboration with Giorgio Armani, hosted an exhibition opening at the Armani/Teatro in Milan for Richard Hambleton - New York. In attendance were Clive Owen, Rachel Zoe, Lapo Elkann, Mario Testino, Carine Roitfeld, Tatiana Santo Domingo, Stavros Niarchos, and Margherita Missoni, among others. -
The attendees all looked polished and pretty, though with that oh-so-seductive touch of street cred - fitting, since Hambleton is known as the Godfather of Street Art.
The preview was followed by an afterparty at Armani Privé. If you didn't get to swing by the opening festivities, Hambleton's pop expressionist works will be on display from March 1st to March 12th at Milan's Armani/Teatro. As for the chance to stare at Clive Owen's face and Lapo Elkann's velvet loafers with equal lust, you may be out of luck.
And did we mention that we consider Vladimir Restoin-Roitfeld one of New York's hottest bachelors? Or that Andy Valmorbida's younger brother PC's recent opening of the LA gallery Prism signals the arrival of another Valmorbida boy on the art scene? Here's hoping these gentlemen have lots of other tricks up their sleeves . ..
