While not everyone has the chance to scale a mountain – not even Hugh Jackman – it didn’t stop Montblanc from bringing such an experience indoors. This happened on the occasion of a gala dinner, hosted by Montblanc, in celebration of their 1858 collection that pays tribute to mountain exploration. Guests – including Jackman, David Gandy, and Yang Yang – were whisked away to Domaine du Château de Collex at the outskirts of Geneva, which boasts a sprawling view of the Jura and Mont Blanc. Inside the restaurant, guests received a base camp experience via a digital GIF animation area before taking in a dinner décor of oil lamps and compasses that stayed true to the night’s theme.
