We didn’t make it to the Dazed party at Don Hill’s last night (although we heard a bunch of people got arrested, so maybe that’s a good thing), but we did manage to stop by the Creatures of Comfort New York store launch on Mulberry Street and Style.com‘s 10th anniversary bash, which was taking place just a couple of blocks away.
Creatures of Comfort, a Los Angeles-based brick and mortar store, label, and online shopping destination for Rachel Comey and VPL-lovers across the country, is opening up shop in New York. Owner Jade Lai hosted a party in her expansive new space last night, and tons of our favorite designers were there: Tiffany Tuttle, Comey, Peter Jensen, Victoria Bartlett, Daphne Javitch, and plenty more. And of course Lai around, not only touting her new storefront, but also her INCREDIBLE in-house collection, which both Leah and I melted over. It’s gently priced–in the $150-$350 range–and everything is a mix and match of silk cropped blouses, tie-waist dresses, and loose blazers. Most was made from a delicate crepe, with some cotton mixed in. And the color palette? Seafoam, terra cotta, white, periwinkle…everything we want for spring.
But soon it was time to head to Lafayette for Style.com‘s 10th anniversary party. The celebration took place in a private residence, which was pretty insane, with its five floors and terrace overlooking the city. But the most insane thing about it? The in-ground pool, where two models swam around in Marchesa dresses. (Apparently there was a “photo shoot” taking place.) When we weren’t standing around attempting to estimate the value of the property–$10, $20, $30 million?–we were catching up with some of the best and brightest designers in the industry. Dana Lorenz, Prabal Gurung, Chris Benz, and Jason Wu were all there, among others.
The evening ended with a stop off at Ed’s Lobster Bar, where we feasted on shrimp, oysters and yes, lobster. “This is one of those times when New York is just really good,” Leah said. I agree.
