PARTIES

Before the Gold Rush


Every year, the days leading up to the Golden Globes offer a prime opportunity for European fashion brands to nab the attention of Hollywood—and hopefully share a bit of its star wattage. Mulberry began its courtship Friday night, co-hosting cocktails and a dinner with CEO of creative brand consulting firm Finch & Partners Charles Finch. Held at the Chateau Marmont and around the pool at Bungalow One, the evening was dubbed the first annual “Out of Towners Dinner” and as such, nabbed Brits like Rosamund Pike, Dominic West, Christoph Waltz, Laura Carmichael and Cressida Bonas. A former paramour of Prince Harry, Bonas stars in a new film for Mulberry, scenes from which were screened at the fete. The next day, Mulberry was at it again as the main sponsor of the BAFTA tea party at the Four Seasons Beverly Hills. Guests like Cara Delevingne, Keira Knightley, Marion Cotillard and Eddie Redmayne took turns at the pop-up craft bar, making their own leather bracelets. And that night, the Art of Elysium, an organization that provides educational programming for artists and hospitalized children, held its annual Heaven Gala, sponsored by Samsung at Hangar 8 in Santa Monica. Johnny Depp’s fiancé, the actress Amber Heard, was honored with the Spirit of Elysium award and Costume National seized the chance to preview its pre-fall 2015 collection. The artist Marina Abramović—dressed in Costume National, natch—performed her hour-long piece “Silence is Golden,” during which guests had to maintain complete silence. No doubt some welcomed a break from cocktail chatter.
