Enfants Riches Déprimés: Depressed Rich Kids


Edgy LA/Paris-based clothing line, Enfants Riches Déprimés, celebrated  its launch party at The Box last night with a boozy and scandalizing collection showcase. Enfants Riches Déprimés translates to “Depressed Rich Kids.” Designer Henri Alexander portrays his inspiration as “the kid who […] has been given everything his or her whole life, but is still miserable. Chic outcasts, misfits and addicts.”

Catering to these outliers, who were most certainly in attendance,  Enfants presented this season’s collection with just the right amount of provocative phrases, partial nudity, and unexpected theatrics. Simultaneously engaging and detached, Alexander acknowledges the feelings we’re all pretending to admonish – and then invites us to indulge.

We See Right Through You


This summer, New Yorkers are becoming very transparent in their nightlife agendas:

As highlighted by Tuesday's trend report in WWD, designers continue to develop their gauzy gaze with see-through fabrics for Resort 2012 -- and the kids are catching on quickly.

KirillWasHere continuously captures the sheer look, albeit unintentionally, while PYT-scouting and awaiting random acts of indiscretion.

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!

Pre-Fashion Week Follies


Today is Tuesday, but we are still feeling the ache from weekend separation pains. There is nothing like waking up without an alarm and heading to brunch for bottomless mimosas at 2pm, hunting around for designer mesh at the Gilt Warehouse Sale and stomping around the East Village late at night in faux fur.

The weekend began at White Noise for “The Wild Ones” party. Hosted by Samuel Valentine, the party attracted the most eclectic, irreverent crowd found south of 14th Street. Every Friday, the wild ones of Lower Manhattan are lured to this quasi-hidden location with nostalgic music, glamrock décor and about a half-a-dozen photographers.

Saturday arrived in the blink of an eye. Nicolas spent the better part of his day revisiting the long-lost Altman building for the Gilt Warehouse Sale. While he sifted through rare, discounted designer merchandise amongst cocktails and Vita Coco, I spent the morning shopping around the West Village. But when the January doldrums rendered regular retail hopeless, I shared an afternoon of gluten-free goodness at two Lower East Side establishments, Pala and Babycakes.

The sun went down and it was time to plan the night’s festivities once more: Bedlam was the first stop on the itinerary. Anderson Cooper’s boyfriend, Benjamin Maisani, opened Bedlam in September 2010 and the bar has since welcomed bold-faces names like Matthew Broderick, Sarah Jessica Parker, and Alan Cumming. Full of large taxidermy projects, vintage anatomy graphs, and yellowed photo wallpaper, the bar also attracts an anonymous mix of stylish PYTs.

When Sunday morning rolled around, it was time to make the last make-or-break decision: Where to brunch?

Nicolas, Rachel, and I decided to venture away from the norm and head uptown to Zucchero E Pomodori. While the crowd was more “B&T state school sorority reunion” than “pre-fashion week urbanite,” the three of us wholeheartedly enjoyed our delicious dishes and unlimited mimosas. After our brunchtastic rendezvous, we made our way to Rachel’s abode to check out some of her newest projects.

To ease the pain of having our weekend ripped away like a sticky band-aid, I aimlessly sifted through Saturday’s neglected mail. And what do I find, but a certain unmistakable plexi-glass Fashion Week invite? Withdrawals, be gone: With Fashion Week just around the corner, we have no time to fret the hours between 9-and-5!

Not Yet Labor Day


The District L duo gave up on outdated fashion rules long ago. Suede found its way into spring accessories and tights have been courting open-toed shoes for quite some time now. Despite the lack of emphasis people place on these old guidelines, it still seems fun to ride out summer traditions in the remaining weeks of August.

Just last week, one of our favorite partying photographers captured the Hampton hedonists that were most excited that it is not yet Labor Day.

Fashion's Night Out


The initial event listing has finally been released for the return of Fashion's Night Out on September 10, 2010. While additions are bound to be made in the next 24 days, we have created an anticipatory list of parties that might even make Anna smile.

3.1 Phillip Lim - Phillip will be making an appearance at his Mercer Street store on September 10, 6pm to 9pm. Afterwards, he will join the Rag and Bone team for a street-side party. With performances by My Gold Mask, Lim maintains the chic party aura he established back in 2007.

Alice + Olivia - Are you willing to brave Midtown for FNO? Are you mystifyingly tall and thin? If you answered yes to both of these questions, head over to 80 W. 40th Street for Fashion's Night Out to win a chance to be in the Alice + Olivia S/S11 runway show.

ALTER - If you're a Brooklynite at heart and love a good Photo Booth party, the Fashion's Night Out event at ALTER will suit your needs. Sip champagne and check out the newly unveiled collections at 140 Franklin Street this September 10th.

Twinkle by Wenlan - Twinkle by Wenlan will be teaming up with Coclico to celebrate FNO for a night filled with champagne, shopping, and surprises. After Twinkle's solid show last season, Wenlan is certainly a designer to keep on your radar.
