Peroni Celebrates Vogue Italia’s 50th Anniversary With Exhibition at Holt Renfrew

Vogue Italia is celebrating its milestone 50th anniversary this year, and Peroni decided that the perfect gift would be an exhibition in the magazine’s honour, right here in Toronto.

Titled ‘Peroni Nastro Azzurro Celebrates The Visionary World of Vogue Italia’, the exhibition provides a behind-the-scenes look at the incredibly talented roster of designers, models, film actors and more who have graced its pages or contributed to them, delving into the magazine’s video archives.

The story is told in moving images as never seen before. Miles Aldridge’s hypnotic shots in saturated colours; art by Vanessa Beecroft and Marina Abramović;  models such as Mariacarla Boscono and Eva Herzigova; icons of cinema including Quentin Tarantino and Michael Fassbender; cult designers such as Manolo Blahnik and Philip Treacy. Each gives a unique insight into what makes Vogue Italia a powerful force for Italian style.

Check out the gallery below for style snaps from the launch party, which was attended by the likes of Vogue Italia contributor Grazia D’Annuncio and designer Stella Jean. The must-see exhibition is housed at the Holt Renfrew Bloor Street flagship in Toronto until October 31.

Spotted from the Backseat: Intermix Toronto Launch Party

Intermix’s Crystal Torchio and CEO Khajak Keledjian

Intermix‘s first boutique on Canadian soil launched back in August, but the US retailer only officially celebrated last night with a shindig fit for Hollywood actresses, top Canadian designers and models, all-around fabulous people and…me. Far from the civilized breakfast date I had with CEO Khajak Keledjian when the store opened its doors, yesterday’s fête replaced coffee with free-flowing wine and an audience with Keledjian with a set by rapper Theophilus London

It was a very well-attended affair. Keledjian was there, of course, with the rest of the Intermix Toronto team, as well as his co-hosts from The Coveteur. Oh, and actress Jessica Chastain, who I missed completely somehow. The ubiquitous Greta Constantine team was out in full force, as were big name Canadian models who’ve walked the runway for them, Tara Gill and Naro Lokuruka. The other two-thirds of my “blogger troika” (dubbed as such by FASHION‘s Randi Bergman), being‘s Nelia Belkova and‘s Julia Seidl, kept me thoroughly entertained until Theophilus London took over that job.

Give the gallery a gander for party photos. I spied lots of Versace for H&M, just as much Joe Fresh and even a little bit of VAWK (OK, that last one was me)…
