Earlier this week I joined Kiehl’s for their holiday party and benefit, hosted by contemporary artist, Jeff Koons. Back in October (you may remember me posting about this), Kiehl’s and Koons had launched a limited edition Creme de Corps collection with all the net proceeds benefiting The Koons Family Institute, an initiative of the International Centre for Missing & Exploited Children (ICMEC). The theme of the collection and party was a Wonderland of Merry. And the evening was just that, complete with a special check presentation by Kiehl’s President, Chris Salgardo to Mr. Koons for the amount of $225,000 for his charity.
With ribbon surrounding the store, treats provided by Momofuku, music by DJ Paul Sevigny (yes, Chloe’s brother), a room filled with artists, models, designers and celebrities all celebrating a great accomplishment by Mr. Koons and Kiehl’s –it was truly a Wonderland of (good and) Merry.
The Kiehl’s and Koons Creme de Corps collection is currently still available.
Guests included Michael C. Hall, Kyle MacLachlan, KAWS, Mark Seliger, Rain Phoenix, Kim Stolz, Jen Bril, Cory Kennedy, Chris Benz, Michelle Harper and Michael Stipe.
