Man About Modernism: An Evening with Stephen Collins1952 Ledo Circle, Palm Springs, CA 922644:00 PM - 6:00 PM$75
He’s an Englishman with a Frenchman’s esprit de corps; a world traveler schooled by the “University of Life.” A self-described semi-nomadic bon vivant, he has traversed the globe from Marrakesh to London, Paris to Palm Beach, collecting beautiful things for the past 20 years. He is a hotelier, a designer, an art historian, a writer, and now more recently, an international TV personality seen on BBC and Bravo TV. Stephen Collins is the very definition of a Man About Modernism by virtue of the fact that he is so unequivocally hard to define.
Driven by an “insatiable hunger for experiencing, first hand, the aesthetic, architectural, visual and culinary delights of an ever diminishing world,” Stephen has traveled the globe extensively only to find his way to Palm Springs, which he now calls home. For the first time ever, he has brought his life’s collection of rare and intriguing art, artifacts, furniture and other examples of 20th century design objets together in one singularly beautiful place – his own eclectic residence.
Design East of La Brea (de LaB), a Los Angeles-based non-profit that celebrates and supports creatives in their efforts to enlighten, improve, and engage, is pleased to take their annual field trip to Palm Springs straight to Stephen’s doorstep for a very special evening with this international Man of Modernism. Join Stephen and de LaB for an exploration of 20th century design and a peek at this keen collector’s private stash.
Handcrafted hors d’oeuvres, signature cocktails by Ultimat Vodka, superb California wines, and world grooves by DJ Alf Alpha.
