Whitewall Summer issue Cover Story: Ben Gorham
"The Byredo Founder Finds Authenticity in a multitude of cultures"

Since discovering the unique smell and transformative qualities of Gypsy Water at Barneys in 2012 we have followed the curious work of Ben Gorham's BYREDO.

That same year, he collaborated with Inez & Vinoodh on the now iconic 1996 eau de parfum, inspired by photography duo's "Kirsten" image (which graced the front of the bottle's box). We met again recently, finally having the chance to talk in depth to create our summer 2019 cover story.

We captured Gorham in Stockholm near his home, a place that continues to provide inspiration for his creative process. BYREDO has become a multifaceted lifestyle brand offering fragrances, leather goods, and now apparel and sneakers.

Aside from an enviable raw talent, what drives Gorham is a commitment to sustainable technology and multicultural design, which made him a perfect fit for the cover of our annual Impact Issue.

Whitewaller Riviera

• This week we're headed to the French Riviera to visit the private collections, foundations, and sculpture parks. First up is @chateaulacoste, a vineyard offering wine tours, fine dining, hospitality, and rotating art exhibitions.

• On view this summer is ceramicist Taizo Kuroda’s first solo exhibition in France. Kuroda has developed his own signature technique using traditions of Japan and Chinese and Korean prototypes. At Chateau La Coste’s Renzo Piano pavilion are Kuroda’s milky white, minimalistic creations.

• Also at Château La Coste, the establishment has partnered with Festival d’Aix and the double A Foundation to present "Eight." A mixed reality project by composer Michel van der Aa and songwriter Kate Miller-Heidke, "Eight" fuses virtual reality, visual art, and musical theatre.

Whitewall is thrilled to have Virgil Abloh on the cover of our summer 2019 Impact issue. We first met Abloh in 2016 in Chicago where we interviewed him at Soho House for our fall 2016 fashion issue. He was a designer on the rise with his undoubtedly hip OFF-WHITE label. When we spoke with him, his vision and creative energy was palpable. Since then, it's come as no surprise that he's become the world phenomenon he is today, now the men's artistic director for Louis Vuitton. An icon of the Instagram generation, he has an uncanny ability to tap into the cultural zeitgeist and deliver what the youth crave, always up for a collaboration with a fellow creative.

Forever on the go, we managed to catch Abloh for this cover story, shot in his studio at Louis Vuitton in Paris. He was in the middle of preparing for the house's men's spring/summer 2020 show. Our conversation, coincidentally, brought us back to Chicago, where he is currently the subject of a first solo museum show at the MCA. Abloh is not just a designer or a DJ, an architect or an artist, a co-founder, streetwear legend, best friend, or cultural icon. He is progress, from beginning to end. He is the sum of many, many parts.

This week we traveled to Crewe (in the middle of the Midlands of Englad) to visit @bentleymotors headquarters and factory. We were there for the world premiere of the #exp100GT concept car which coincides with the 100th anniversary of Bentley.
The concept car embraces the tradition of the British carmaker while looking towards the next generation of the automotive industry: reconciling luxury and technology, autonomous driving and exceptional experience. The pleasure of the drive—or of being driven—has always been a hallmark of Bentley and today takes on a new significance.
The exterior and interior of the EXP 100 GT offer a constant dialogue between passenger, machine, and each's surroundings.
Futuristic yet realistic, this concept car beholds the future of the brand, showcasing Bentley’s role as an innovator and creator of the ultimate driving experience.
Extraordinary journeys will take on a whole new meaning.

The photographers behind La Prairie's “Eyes In Focus” were touched by an array of inspirations. Droz knew early on that the wanted to be an artist, and has been more interested in the décor than the subject. Leuba has long since been inspired by dynamic culture, meeting new artists, and learning new techniques in her field. And Simond's work focuses on female representation, inspired by cinema, painting, and photography. Here, however, all emphasize beauty and explore the mystery of the gaze. @laprairie @senta.simond @danieladroz_ @namsaleuba #laprairie @ Basel Art Fair

La Prairie's “Eyes in Focus” is an exhibition that taps into the mystery behind the gaze—a look, but more importantly, a window into and mirror of the soul. Special for this presentation is its Swissness. La Prairie is a luxury Swiss beauty brand, Art Basel is a major Swiss art organization, and both are supporting three Swiss emerging artists—Daniela Droz, Namsa Leuba, and Senta Simond. “We always try to embrace our ‘Swissness’ in everything we do," said Greg Prodromines, Chief Marketing Officer of La Prairie. "We did, however, very much like the idea of having only women. La Prairie considers that a women’s desires are at the forefront of everything that we do. This collaboration is a celebration of what unites us.” @laprairie @danieladroz_ @senta.simond @namsaleuba #laprairie #artbasel @ Art Basel First Choice VIP Lounge

This week, we are at the 2019 edition of Art Basel, checking out the latest La Prairie artist
collaboration. The Swiss luxury skincare brand is presenting “Eyes In Focus” within its pavilion at the
Collectors Lounge. The exhibit explores the concept of “the gaze” through the perspective of three Swiss female
photographers—Daniela Droz, Namsa Leuba, and Senta Simond. Droz was specifically inspired by the power of light, and used it to reflect the subjects’ emotions back onto themselves. Leuba, interested in communicating through conceptual dimensions, framed her photos with graphics. And Simond photographed a series of models in their natural states, expanding the idea of beauty.

To mark @LaPrairie’s latest artistic collaboration, which debuted this week at Art Basel in Basel, we’re taking a look back at the Swiss luxury skincare brand's most recent installations. Last December for Art Basel in Miami Beach, La Prairie debuted a new commission by architect Mario Botta. At the heart of the piece was the ultimate pursuit—the search for the origin of life. And in March of this year, La Prairie tapped South Korean artist Chul-Hyun Ahn to create three unique light works, which launched at Art Basel in Hong Kong.
“Each artistic collaboration is for us an opportunity to reveal a story about our brand and our collections.” — Patrick Rasquinet, La Prairie CEO @ Art Basel First Choice VIP Lounge

The iconic Longchamp Le Pliage® bag was originally inspired origami. Which makes the brand’s recent collaboration with Tokyo-based design studio nendo a natural fit. The studio, founded by Oki Sato, reimagined the foldable bag in a whole new way. In addition to functioning as a classic bag or neatly folded, nendo added a third way: as a storage object. As a cone, circle, or cube, the bag comes in six shades.
You can discover the collection in Basel at Freie Strasse 83
Said Longchamp CEO Jean Cassegrain, “We thought it would be very stimulating to ask nendo to envision a new interpretation. The result is perfectly precise, and this collaboration will stand as a landmark for the House.” @nendo_official @longchamp #nendo #longchamp

This week, Gucci presented its Cruise 2019 collection at Les Alyscamps in Arles, France. Designer Alessandro Michele’s bold styles ranging from Marie Antoinette-like looks to dark-and-devious details proved the house’s dedication to daring style and diversity. But the fashion wasn’t the only highlight. Set in the Roman necropolis, the show began with an ignited line of fire down the runway. Full of ancient references, the setting provided an unforgettable backdrop for the new collection’s debut.

Tiffany Zabludowicz currently runs Times Square Space, a unique exhibition site in the heart of Times Square at 1500 Broadway. This winter, Times Square Space hosted “Stray,” a group exhibition of sculpture by Kelly Akashi, Ivana Bašić, Hayden Dunham, Marguerite Humeau, and Pamela Rosenkranz, located on the 14th floor with near-panoramic views of the neighborhood’s skyscrapers. And on view now through June 21 is “Tesseract,” a solo exhibition by Signe Pierce. "One thing that’s very important to me is to support artists of my generation and to work with artists of my generation. That I understood from a young age. Obviously, sometimes I’m interested in other artists who have emerged, but working with emerging artists allows you to actually make an impact on the art of your time. You get to have conversations with wonderful people who are around your age and making art. That’s the best." - Tiffany Zabludowicz

Last week, the Molteni Group hosted a private dinner party in celebration of its newest flagship store located at 160 Madison Avenue. President of the group Carlo Molteni, alongside guests like Whitney Robinson and Amy Astley, began the evening with an in-store cocktail before enjoying a candlelit dinner and breathtaking views of Manhattan atop the roof of the The NoMad Hotel, New York . The space was designed by Vincent Van Duysenysen, who describes the project as something that “brings Italian style and elegance into a classic New York building.” The flagship store is the premiere location to offer Molteni&C, UniFor , and Dada, all three of the Molteni Group’s brands.

Hermès celebrated the opening of a Palo Alto boutique last Thursday, May 17, with a cocktail and special event. Located in the Stanford Shopping Center, it’s the first new store for the luxury house in over seven years. Parisian architecture agency RDAI designed the space to be open and airy. There, the brand’s tech offerings shine, including a vitrine of apple watches, a commissioned digital artwork by Eric Vernhes, and a new digital silk scarf table, giving clients the option of seeing the complete offerings of patterns and colorways.
“We look forward to offering a warm welcome and exceptional service to a new community of clients from the surrounding area, including entrepreneurs and innovators engaged in the fast-evolving technology industry headquartered in this dynamic region of the country,” said USA President & C.E.O, Robert B. Chavez
