Bottega Veneta and Casa Dragones Summer Cocktail
On June 14, luxury Italian fashion house Bottega Veneta celebrated the opening of its Upper East Side flagship in New York City. Guests flowed into the grand space on Madison Avenue—a fusing of three landmarked townhouses that took nearly five years to complete—and upon arrival were each offered a tiny key. Only one key in the crowd would open a glass showcase containing the gift of beautiful Bottega Veneta goods and the just-launched 375-mL bottle of Casa Dragones Blanco. While awaiting the reveal, guests—including Gaetano Pesce, Alex Assouline, Malaika Firth, Amy Sacco, and Stella Schnabel—enjoyed Casa Dragones Blanco on the rocks with a summery edible flower garnish and a live set by model-turned-DJ Soo Joo Park.
