Stars gathered in Culver City Friday night to celebrate IWC Schaffhausen and Peter Lindbergh's A Night in Portofino, a brilliant photographic collaboration between the legendary photographer, the renowned Swiss watchmaker and IWC's overwhelmingly talented friends of the brand. Exclusively in the US for one night, the photos capture the spirit of La Dolce Vita and the true elegance of Portofino in the 1960's.
One of the world's leading brands in the luxury watch segment, IWC has been producing watches and special timepieces of lasting value since 1868.
Celebrity in attendance included Eric Dane, Patrick Dempsey, Rebecca Gayheart, Michael Muller, Sylvester Stallone, Rachel Zoe, Joe Manganiello, Mia Maestro, Maggie Grace, Justin Chambers, Alexander Skarsgard, Josh Duhamel, Isabel Lucas, Shiva Rose, Goreski, Carla Gugino, Julian McMahon, Emmanuelle Chriqui, Dermot Mulroney, Rob Lowe, Daniel Henney, and Xun Zhou.
For the exclusive US event, IWC created their own Portofino in Los Angeles. Capitalizing on the behind the scenes nature of the exhibition, there was no more of a perfect location than the historic Culver City Studios. When guests first arrived, they were treated to a gallery-like setting displaying almost 50 photos from the world class exhibition and also had the privilege to preview an exclusive movie featuring the animation and excitement that took place during the shoot. As they moved further into the gallery, the party began to transition and everyone was transported to the Portofino harbor by nightfall.
