TIMES FIVE: On Tuesday evening, Burberry and W Magazine threw a cocktail party for Paddle 8 at Soho House’s new Lower East Side Ludlow street outpost, the first event the members-only venue has hosted. The event was to mark the auction house’s fifth anniversary. Fresh off her CFDA Awards appearance on the arm of Swarovski Award for Womenswear winner Brandon Maxwell, Naomi Campbell turned out along with Paddle 8 cofounder Alexander Gilkes; Misha Nonoo; Jessica Hart; Lexi Boling; Indre Rockefeller; Sophie Elgort, and more.
Gilkes cofounded Paddle 8 in 2011 as a source for a younger, newer generation of art collectors. They have featured sales curated by the likes of Lynn Wyatt, Grace Coddington and Tracey Emin.
