For the 2018 FIFA World Cup, Hublot took a trip to Russia's bustling capital to host an evening party at the Baccarat Restaurant. For this special occasion, Hublot was joined by many renowned icons from across the sports stratosphere, including Manchester United coach José Mourinho; Christian Karembeu and Marcel Desailly; middleweight boxing Champion Gennady Golovkin; Indian Cricket superstar Rohit Sharma; and Ferrari Challenge driver Martin Fuentes. Guests were welcomed to a culinary experience assembled by Michelin star chef Yannick Alléno, with British singer Glenn Hughes of Deep Purple taking stage to an adoring crowd. Hublot's newest official brand ambassador, Andrey Bartenev, was also in attendance. Showcased at the party was some of the Russian contemporary artist's work, with colourful emblems of the popular Hublot Loves Football campaign being showcased at the party on soccer balls as well as Russian matryoshka figurines.
