Cannes, 12 July 2021 – A not-to-be-missed fixture on the calendar of Chopard’s activities at the Cannes Film Festival, tonight’s Gentlemen’s Evening held on the Chopard Rooftop hosted an array of actors, dandies and other gentlemen, all invited by Chopard Co-Presidents, Caroline and Karl-Friedrich Scheufele, to celebrate the men’s watchmaking collections by the Maison.
Chopard prides itself on its consummate mastery of red carpet elegance thanks to its Haute Joaillerie and Haute Horlogerie creations. For this reason, one of the Maison’s special evenings held at each edition of the Cannes Film Festival, to which it has been an official partner since 1998, is devoted specifically to gentlemen. At the joint invitation of Chopard Co-Presidents Caroline Scheufele and her brother Karl-Friedrich, the Chopard Rooftop – featuring a recreation of an English private club atmosphere specially designed for the occasion – notably welcomed two automobile legends in the form of ambassadors of the Maison Jacky Ickx and Romain Dumas – along with actor Adrian Brody as well as actresses Dylan Penn and Daphne Patakia.
Scrupulously complying with the ‘Riviera Chic’ dress code, the assembled guests were able to revel in the Chopard Rooftop’s unobstructed view over the bay of Cannes and its Palais des Festivals at sunset during a cocktail reception featuring food by Best Worker of France Arnaud Faye (head chef at “La Chèvre d’Or” restaurant) and wines from Château Monestier Latour (Karl-Friedrich Scheufele’s vineyard in Bergerac), Perrier-Jouët champagnes and Pernod Ricard spirits.
