Le Meridien’s LA Summer Soiree with Garance Dore

Le Meridien’s LA Summer Soiree with Garance Dore

Le Méridien debuted its chic program “Au Soleil: a Summer Soirée” last night at a gorgeous mid-century modern Beverly Hills private residence that was once home to old movie stars like Elvis Presley. Hosted by Garance Doré, celebrated writer, creative director and founder of Atelier Doré, notable attendees included some of Doré’s chicest and closest pals, including Clare Vivier (Founder, Clare V.), Heidi Merrick (designer), Jessica De Ruiter (Stylist), John Frierson (President, Fred Segal), and Kate Butler (Actress). Guests, dressed clad in their summer best, nibbled on petit plates, sipped on rosé cocktails, played backgammon and bocce ball as well as danced along to live performances by French Bossa Nova collective Nouvelle Vague along with Chris Norton, Doré’s husband-to-be. The event paid homage to the brand’s French heritage and the allure of the Côte d’Azur.

The videos connote this idea of la dolce vita / savoring the good life, which is the baseline of the brand’s new positioning.
