As part of M Missoni’s “M Music” series–a partnership the brand has started with up-and-coming musicians to boost their careers–M Missoni threw a party at The Standard’s Le Bain last night. The rooftop soiree featured the talents (and beauty) of Danish performer Oh Land.
M Missoni couldn’t have chosen a more fashionable performer to champion. Girl looks like a model (she’s a former ballerina) but has the voice and quirk and performance chops worthy of some serious hype. Wearing a very short brown and red M Missoni poncho-caftan-type thing, Oh Land held the fashionable socialite-y audience captive (Byrdie Bell, Anne Dexter Jones and Genevieve Jones were all present and accounted for) banging around some drum sticks we fancied to be magic wands (they were wound with blue ribbon!), accompanied by a bunch of balloons with images of singing faces projected on them.
Up on the roof, things were very blustery, and we got a little schadenfreude-ish pleasure watching all the beautiful socialites in flimsy summer dresses try their best to administer some frock-control. We wondered if those Standard rooftop veterans plan their outfits taking the wind into account–hence many PYTs in rompers and white pants–and found ourselves coveting the adorable server outfits: J.Crew’s perfect fit long-sleeved striped tee, a short denim mini skirt and black flats. C’est parfait.
