Party at Bloomies! Last night, the retailer debuted its new "Loyallist" reward card program with spinning deejays, feather boa photo opps, and most importantly, sale racks. Meanwhile, Derek Lam and a chic coterie of mods descended on the second floor for the in-store launch of 10 Crosby. Before indulging in lavender-colored cupcakes and matching manis, Chic chatted with the street-wise designer.

What's the story behind 10 Crosby?
It's the street address for our office!

What's your favorite haute spot on Crosby Street?
There's an amazing tea shop a block from me called In Pursuit of Tea, or Cha. I try everything there.

Speaking of streets, let's free associate!

Wall Street: [laughs] One percent.

Sunset Boulevard: Old movies.

Hollywood Boulevard: I don't know that street.

Bleecker Street: What a great street!

Castro Street in San Francisco: There's an amazing old-time theater there called The Castro Theatre.

Pacific Coast Highway: A perfect afternoon.

Broadway: The heartbeat of America.

Do you have a favorite Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young song?
I'm more into The Mamas and the Papas. It's all about "California Dreaming." 

What are you up to next?
I'm going on vacation next week to Burma, Phuket, and Seoul!
