Chopard’s association with the Cannes Film Festival makes it a global showcase for its fine jewellery as movie royalty mix on red carpets dripping in diamonds.
It is also a platform for its haute horlogerie, particularly at its annual Gentlemen’s Evening, held this year on the Chopard Rooftop and hosted by Chopard co-presidents Caroline and Karl-Friedrich Scheufele.
The event combined an English private members club atmosphere (think Annabels in Mayfair) with a dress code of Riviera Chic.
Famous guests included motor racing drivers Jacky Ickx and Romain Dumas, Oscar winning actor Adrian Brody as well as actresses Dylan Penn and Daphne Patakia.
Music was provided The Knights Club Band, followed by DJ Nathalie Duchêne banging out tunes late into the night.
