For its fifth annual Inspiration Gala celebrating men’s style, the world’s top menswear designers will create custom-made looks for a print-focused runway show at The Plaza’s Palm Court. The evening, which is scheduled for June 10, will also serve to honor a few standup groups and individuals: H.R.H. Crown Princess Mette-Marit of Norway, HBO, and Calvin Klein Collection. Michael Lombardo will accept the award on behalf of HBO (Sarah Jessica Parker, a longtime amfAR supporter, will present the award to him), while Francisco Costa and Italo Zucchelli will accept on behalf of Calvin Klein Collection. The benefit, presented by MAC Viva Glam, will also include a rare performance by New Order, as well as a live auction of luxury goods.
