Last night, we stopped by Party for the Pelicans, a charity event held at The Wooly to benefit the oil disaster, specifically the Endangered Species Coalition's efforts to protect the more than 40 endangered species being negatively impacted. The party was full of cool people like Arden Wohl, Tom Sachs, Leelee Sobieski and Waris Ahluwalia, who lent a beautiful piece from House of Waris to the event's silent auction. If the piece weren't so far out of our price range, we would have bid our little hearts out. We're super jealous of whoever got it, but if it wasn't you, head to Barneys this week, as all proceeds from House of Waris will go to the Endangered Species Coalition. Sculptor Tom Sachs is also helping out--he made this amazing necklace made out of little polar bear sculptures and about $40 worth of quarters, all the proceeds of which will also go to the ESC.
Los Angeles-based designer Melissa Coker never fails to impress. Maybe that's why her label Wren is a favorite of so many It girl-types, from Alexa Chung to Arden Wohl. The latest engenue to take on Coker's collection is The Like's Z Berg, who's featured in the line's summer look book. We're partial to the short suit, but really, any pretty piece will do. Click through for an exclusive preview--the clothes hit stores soon.
