Inside Pharrell’s Louis Vuitton Afterparty with Nami Nori’s Jihan Lee

The sushi chef and owner brings his haute spin to late night bites.

The Spring Summer 2025 men's collections may be wrapping up later this week, but on Tuesday, it was all eyes on two letters, LV. Recently appointed creative director Pharrell Williams presented his offerings for the season ahead calling it, "an homage to mankind." And while the resulting pieces ranged from slick tailoring to easy separates, the collection was cohesive and continues to steer Vuitton in new a new direction. But the runway is only half the equation. Afterwards, it's about living and partying in the pieces. That's why we asked Jihan Lee, owner and chef of MICHELIN Guide Bib Gourmand Nami Nori to give us an inside peek of what went down late night.

Below, check out Lee's snaps from his Paris adventures where he brought his restaurant's signature haute touch to temaki with customized, colored platforms and oodles of fun.
