To celebrate their newly launched collaboration, Fai Khadra and Oliver Peoples‘ CEO, Rocco Basilico, hosted an intimate dinner on a helipad in Los Angeles, at 6100 Wilshire Blvd. Designed by Fai Khadra, guests sat under a helium light balloon, on a custom style harkness table.
Among the attendees were: The Weeknd, Kendall Jenner, Hailey Bieber, Luka Sabbat, Kendall Visser, Steve Lacey, Simi & Haze, Zack Bia, Pedro Cavaliere, Jasmine Daniels, Syd Tha Kyd, Travis Bennett, Christina Nadin, Charlotte Day Wilson, and Gabriella Karefa Johnson, among others.
Oliver Peoples and Fai Khadra collaborated to launch an exclusive range of sunglasses that fuses the design aesthetics of Oliver Peoples with the influential mindset of Fai. Fai Khadra is a multidisciplinary creative who has built a strong profile in the design world, captivating an audience of musicians, luxury brands, and galleries across the globe. His cultural relevance and innovative perspective bring an impactful, avant-garde point of view to the collaboration.
The event was creatively directed by Fai. He conceptualized every element of the evening from the custom-built layout, from the original table and bar set-up to the several course menu. Overall, Fai Khadra’s goal was to create a holistic aesthetic designed for his peers.
“We are thrilled to collaborate with Fai Khadra. Fai will become a leader in the creative space of design and brought a clear vision to the collaboration. As a brand, Oliver Peoples has always been defined by vintage-inspired details made for the modern wearer. Fai’s innovative creative direction aligned with our aesthetic seamlessly,” said Rocco Basilico (CEO).
