(NEW YORK) Was it really 19 years ago that architect John Pawson designed the Calvin Klein Collection flagship on Madison Avenue? Indeed. All these years later, the space feels as fresh and forward as ever, as evidenced at a Wednesday night cocktail celebrating Pawson's new book, A Visual Inventory. The tome is a collection of snapshots Pawson has taken over the years of everything from views from an airplane window to abstract landscapes. 

The crowd at his book party was equally eclectic: Tonne Goodman, Amanda Brooks, Fred Wilson, Guy Trebay, Nora Zehetner, Matt Tyrnauer, Harold Koda, and Hal Rubenstein, for starters. Italo Zucchelli was sporting some serious new glasses (noir and square, very nice), while Francisco Costa explained his most recent project. "So we've done a capsule for Macy's..." he explained politely, like anyone could have missed the news. A bronzed and energized Kevin Carrigan had returned just hours earlier from a family reunion in South Africa, while CK's new social media guruette Hanneli Mustaparta twirled around in her leather-sleeved wool bomber with a girly frill at the back. "A little feminine and a little masculine," she grinned. "Just like me!"
