On Friday, Donatella Versace and Christopher Kane comandeered Milk Studios for the Art of Elysium benefit.
They held court on one side with Naomi Campbell, while Mary Kate Olsen and Alexa Chung stood on the other. Most of the girls wore Versus, a few wore Versace, and even Anna Wintour swung by the party to make a DIY hat with Erica Domesek of PS. I Made This. Florence and the Machine dropped out at the last minute, so Estelle played while a few people danced and most just ogled the screens playing Kane's collection.
Uptown, the Versus collection has taken over Versace's 5th Avenue windows and the second floor balcony of the marble store. Kane's SS10 collection's for sale now---sizes run extra extra small---including black bustiers and safety pinned dresses. A selection of the AW10 collection is there, too, with metal mesh shoes and bags as well as the screen printed t-shirts from the show.
You can order the fall clothes now, but like the salesperson told us, "You'll have to wait until they get here in June to take them home!"
Fall clothes hitting stores in June? Cue the vicious retail cycle.
