Fashion Week is upon us, Scenesters! And though its official start is today, the unofficial launch party took place last night, at Pier 57, where crowds gathered to celebrate Prabal Gurung‘s collection for Target with a carnival-themed party. Carousels, stilt walkers, cotton candy, fortune tellers, concerts, endless games and food trucks—to say the party was over-the-top would be an understatement.
As Seen in SCENE
Chanel’s Little Black Jacket is having a moment—though it’s not like this classic hasn’t been having a moment ever since Coco drew up the pattern for the look that established her as the greatest couturiere of her time.
But this June, Chanel is celebrating its iconic mascot with a travelling photo exhibit featuring images from the forthcoming book, The Little Black Jacket: Chanel’s Classic Revisited. Due out this fall, the book was born out of a collaboration between none other than Karl Lagerfeld and Vogue Paris’ former editor in chief, Carine Roitfeld who styled various celebrities and personalities wearing the little black jacket while Lagerfeld stood behind the camera capturing the reinvention of this wardrobe staple with black and white film.
It comes to no surprise that, with their powers combined, Lagerfeld and Roitfeld recruited some of the biggest names in fashion, music, film and society to model for The Little Black Jacket.
As we walked into the Stone Rose Lounge after-party for Silent House, the latest feature from the bonus Olsen, Elizabeth, we kept scanning the crowds of small, thin people to try to locate one of her sisters.
“We’re sure that one of them showed up,” said a rep, “I just can’t remember which one.”
