Live@ICFF: Last Night’s Parties
At the Alessi Takes the Cake party, on Greene Street, the French designer Matali Crasset poses with the mixing bowl from her new Essentiel de Pâtisserie collection, designed with the renowned pastry chef Pierre Hermé.

Speaking of lighting: Ingo Maurer was showing some of his latest experiments. Mmm, spaghetti . . .
