Prada dinner kicks off Louis Vuitton cup in Valencia

Miuccia Prada helped rile up the normally quiet community of Spain’s third largest city Sunday, when Prada hosted a kick-off party celebrating the start of the Louis Vuitton America’s Cup at Central Market. Demi Moore and Ashton Kutcher, Chloë Sevigny and her brother, Paul, Katie Grand and Ines Sastre were among the attendees who braved the light showers to attend an exclusive and intimate dinner the designer and her husband, Patrizio Bertelli, hosted before the bash opened up to nearly 2,000 guests from all over Europe and the United States, not to mention a bevy of prominent Spanish socialites.
Inside the dinner, Rem Koolhaas’s AMO think tank, in collaboration with Prada, created an installation via a series of private rooms within the party that were wallpapered with a special print. The duo also transformed some of the market vendors spaces for the party, whimsically playing with the existing stalls where truffle-infused mozzarella and pistachio paste—the latter dipped in liquid nitrogen—was served to guests by the night’s caterer, El Bulli.
