Last night, American Express brought together media and influencers to celebrate its iconic American Express Gold Card and the new benefits recently added to the popular Premier Rewards Gold Card (the flagship Gold product).
The American Express Gold Card Celebration
Guests enjoyed newly debuted cocktails and dishes from Gabrielle Hamilton, head chef of popular NYC restaurant Prune, like her twist on the classic deviled eggs, which she spruced up with golden trout roe. Others on the scene included the original Alexander Wang Dress made of 500+ Amex Gold Cards, Ashley Merriman of The Waverly Inn, DJ Chelsea Leyland, Rodrigo Bazan of Alexander Wang, Mazack Rassi of Milk Studios, Brandee Brown, Vashtie Kola.
Guests also mingled through interactive elements that brought the new dining and travel benefits of the Gold Card to life. They enjoyed cocktails in an imagined airplane cabin, dined in a pop-up-version of Grand Central Oyster Bar, and enjoyed captivating views in a gold-tufted seating area on the breezy, outdoor terrace.
The American Express Gold Card CelebrationWhen it arrived on the scene nearly 50 years ago, the Amex Gold Card set the standard for credit cards and also brought with it a cache. Now, Amex celebrates the Card Members who set the gold standard today, embodying values such as hard work, resilience and creativity that define success.Throughout the year, Amex will showcase creative collaborations by notable Card Members—all to celebrate the new Gold Card– including Alexander Wang (who custom designed a dress out of 500+ Amex Gold Cards); Gabrielle Hamilton, head chef of Prune (who will be providing original cocktails and menu items for the party); Cole Rise, travel photographer; and Jack Sutter, creator of TGT wallets.
With Father’s Day just around the corner, here are some gift ideas for you.
The SWIMS loafer, a classic shoe that’s both fun and functional, is a fresh alternative to the ties and tools typically gifted for this special occasion. The SWIMS loafers are extremely versatile: they can easily be dressed up or down, depending on the occasion. As well, they are lightweight, which makes them a perfect travel companion for any upcoming holiday this summer. The loafers also come in a variety of classic colors (for the traditional dad that likes to stick to blacks, browns and navys), but they also come in fun, vibrant colors such as reds, yellows, bright blues and even purple for all those stylish fathers out there. And for dad’s that are huge boating/yachting enthusiasts, the SWIMS loafers are the perfect answer as they have an anti-slip, non-marking sole, offer great breathability and are extremely comfortable. And last but not least, you can even throw them in the washing machine!
Another really cool gift is the Alexander Wang ashtray! Not that we encourage smoking or anything but it will be great for small items like keys, rings and USB keys as well 🙂
Still can’t find something for your dad? How about a monthly membership box? They have ones from ties to socks to wine to sausages 🙂
You will find something you still have time!
Since Alexander Wang revived the T-Strap, I am getting extremely excited for ‘the’ summer shoe that will be on the streets worldwide and of course on fashion blogs everywhere. What do you think?
