MILAN — While in November they chose to celebrate Halloween in New York, leaving Milan without their staple party, photographer Giampaolo Sgura and stylist Miguel Arnau hosted a holiday extravaganza on Saturday night at East End Studios.
With “Trashy Christmas” as the theme of the party — which included DJ sets by Marcelo Burlon and Davide Squillace — guests like designers Alessandro dell’Acqua, Massimo Giorgetti, Francesco Scognamiglio, Neil Barrett, Dean Caten, Fausto Puglisi, Bruno Bordese, Lorenzo Serafini, Brian Atwood, Tommaso Aquilano and Roberto Rimondi, as well as Teresa Maccapani Missoni, had numerous costume options.
“They took two hours to wrap me,” said Vionnet’s owner Goga Ashkenazi, who was dressed as a gift box with an oversize bow on the back. Among those showing the most elaborate outfits, siblings Marco and Miki Zanini sported coordinated Tyrolean costumes, while stylist Edoardo Marchiori was a sparkling Christmas tree.
“This is a preview of the new Battaglia’s bag,” said Sara Battaglia, who wore a Santa Claus dress, pointing to the silver cylindrical gift box she was carrying.
