Fly Me to the moon, let me play amongst the stars. Frank Sinatra.
To celebrate their US launch, Leaders of Style II, Samuel Leetham and Saasha Burns of BEAR brought together a community of thought leaders, entrepreneurs and digital directors for an intimate event in Palm Springs, California. Guests arrived at the Ace Hotel and Swim Club from Los Angeles in the early afternoon and basked in the sun by the pool with views of the Coachella mountains, before being being transported in vintage Cadillac’s to Frank Sinatra’s 1947 Twin Palms estate.
Guests relaxed by the infamous piano shaped pool and sipped hand-crafted ‘pink moon’ and ‘desert shadow’ cocktails made with Chareau, a natural California Aloe Liqueur distilled in small batches with botanicals from local farms. As the sun went down, guests dined along two long tables finished with natural linen, wild desert flowers, vintage cermaics, Malfatti Glass, and Humble Ceramics artisan pottery. The effect was clean and minimalist, yet warm and inviting and evoked the subtle sensibilities of the desert and California’s Golden Age.
