Parties and Body Language


In NYE anticipation yes, already we have set a melodic tone to ring in the new year. At Manhattan Center Hammerstein Ballroom, Matt & Kim will be following Body Language for one last 2011 performance.

Brooklyn-based group, Body Language, released Falling Out this past September, featuring driving percussive beats and a hypnotic use of choral patterning. Their self-described “shifty disco” will harmonize effortlessly with leather skirts by Erin Barr, glitzy short-sets by Cheng, or a daring deep-V bodysuit by Miguel Antoinne.

Champagne and Chinchilla: My FNO


At about half-past 5pm, I found myself sprinting down 58th street and descending deep into the bowels of the Hudson Hotel. Socialite darling, Douglas Hannant, was celebrating and presenting his “Pink” launch at Good Units. With a performance by The Vandelles and a relaxed attitude, the Park Avenue Prince was looking refreshingly ‘downtown.’

Two air kisses, one cocktail, and a few photos later, I found myself back on 58th with the good intention of taking a subway. But with another glance at the darkening skies, I muttered, “F*** that,” and hailed a cab down to Greene Street.

I arrived in Soho on Fashion’s Night Out against my initial judgment. The streets reminded me of Halloween in elementary school – everyone especially focused on their attire, scoping out which door would reap the best goodies. But instead of dodging eggs, I dodged drunk tourists until I finally slid into REALM on 98 Greene.

REALM Boutique was throwing an exceptionally style-list FNO, hosted by Lissy Trullie, May Kwok, Michelle Trachtenberg, Leandra Medine, Susie Bubble and Chelsea Leyland. Champagne in hand, I sifted through racks upon racks of luxurious rarities until boutique owner, Lewaa Abdulkhalek stopped me for an introduction.


Presenting his collection of Jitrois, Lewaa highlighted a few key items – a stretch leather sheath dress, a feather-trimmed cocktail frock, and a bright suede skirt. “Black will always be our best-selling color, but red is the predominant fashion color right now,” he shared. I shuddered in delight as I slipped on a cropped chinchilla bomber jacket. “We have a full-length version coming in soon,” Lewaa suggested. I flipped the tag to reveal the price… $31,000.

“Yeah…” I lied, “I guess I’ll just have to wait for that one…”

Good Omen


Pyramid Club. WHAT?!

The Black Soft, hosted by Omen PR and East Village Boys, drew a crowd last night unlike the usual St. Patrick's Day spongers. And yes, there was an open bar. But it was a healthy open bar, stocked full with Kanon Organic Vodka. Did you hear that? ORGANIC!
