A week has passed since NYFW and we’ve been keeping busy with the diversions, parties, and events cleverly scheduled to entice those New Yorkers who hadn’t escaped to Milan:
Chez André: When the André from The Standard (Balazs) and the André from Le Baron (Saraiva) get together, they conceive unstoppable forces of glittering, scandalous nightlife madness. And this time they named it Chez André, a pop-up club under The Standard East. Existing this September only, Baby André slightly resembles Le Baron, yet has the energy of Le Bain circa-2010. Temporarily residing deep beneath Cooper Square is a cornucopia of glitz, graffiti, live music, smoke, and French guys. If only there were a photo booth…
Artist Presentation @Westway: On Wednesday, I headed to Clarkson Street for a presentation by Antonio Santini and six other emerging artists, curated by Arielle Cooper Lethem. In the boozy, backlit haze of Westway, we perused work by Santini, director, writer, and digital artist. And for those who stuck around for the afterparty, art put on its best party hat and got inventive.
PURE DEAD BRILLIANT & Love, Beatrice Showcase and Party: Champagne in hand, we maneuvered the third floor of Norwood last night. Our first stop was to pick up some stripes from LA-based brand Love, Beatrice. Two glasses later, we introduce ourselves to Nora Logan, PURE DEAD BRILLIANT designer and globetrotter. Spending her life in cities like New York, Paris, and Hong Kong, Nora taps her nostalgia with inspiration from travel and music, presenting lyric-stamped rings, cassette necklaces, and Vespa pendants.
