Even if Laila Gohar’s name isn’t immediately familiar, you’ve likely come across photos of her cinematic creations. An established artist who uses food as her medium, Gohar is responsible for a spate of high-profile, experiential collaborations with luxury brands. Her specialty? Dreaming up otherworldly dining events—with the likes of LVMH, Tiffany & Co., Comme des Garçons, among others—in unusual, photogenic spots around the globe. Earlier this year, Gohar teamed up with her sister, Nadia, to launch Gohar World, “a tableware universe that embraces craft, time, tradition, and humor.” (Think: intricate chicken slippers, elegant adult bibs, silk lingerie for baguettes.) Gucci took note, inviting the siblings to launch a capsule collection for their Vault platform this summer. Herewith, she shares her summer shopping list
