Hosted by Lawrence Stroll, Silas K.F. Chou and Edgar Bronfman Jr., Monday night Asprey’s unveiled their new flagship store in New York on Fifth Avenue and 56th Street and brought out a stellar crowd of society, the entertainment world and the media.

Asprey of London has been famous since the late 18th century for its silver and leather goods, watches, porchelains, crystal, rare book and rare gems, the new 19,000-square-foot retail space was designed by renowned architect Norman Foster and David Mlinaric, the English decorator. The Asprey prides itself on luxury lifestyle products with a “distinctly British flair.” It was all there for the select crowd to see on Monday night, and all there for everyone to see just in time for the holidays.
