Milan Vukmirovic: “Fashion’s Like The Titanic”

-------

On Tuesday, the troika behind the Webster in Miami—Frederic Dechnik, Laure Heriard Dubreuil, and Milan Vukmirovic (pictured)—took over the private salons of the Maison Baccarat to introduce selected friends to the Louis XIII Rare Cask by Rémy Martin. Dressed in a plunging, lace-up black dress by Joseph Altuzarra, Dubreuil noted that despite the fashionable guest list—which included Altuzarra, Alexander Wang, Pierre Hardy, Charlotte Dellal, Pamela Golbin, the Traina sisters, and Gabriele Corto Moltedo—this was really just a family affair. (After all, Dubreuil’s family owns Rémy Martin.)

Through dinner, the talk turned to art and architecture. Dellal, the designer behind Charlotte Olympia shoes, described the restoration process on the ironwork in her new London boutique, set to open in early May. “It’s a nineteenth-century shop, so I am restoring it to what I think it must have been then, by way of the forties,” she said. Dubreuil’s boyfriend, artist Aaron Young, regaled guests with tales of his as-yet-untitled work in progress, a gold-plated modern chariot to be impaled atop one of Augustus’ columns at Rome’s Teatro di Marcello at the end of May, around the opening of his solo show at the city’s MACRO museum. That takes care of the high art; a few attendees were as invested in what’s coming up from below. “Fashion’s like the Titanic,” observed the multitasking creative director Vukmirovic, who also designs Trussardi 1911. “The band plays on, but the era of big designer egos is over. Ready-to-wear is becoming what couture used to be. Fashion is direct and the future reality is that everyone is a star, whether or not they have a fashion culture or even means [to buy it]. The only question that matters is, do they like it?” Some like the booze, at least-reports indicate that the Louis XIII, a few bottles of which will make their way to the U.S. in May, has almost entirely pre-sold at €10,000 a pop.
