The Night Out Approaches!
(NEW YORK) If you’re still scrambling to set your itinerary for Fashion’s Night Out, you have a few more options to consider. Shop until 11 p.m. at either Miu Miu’s 57th Street or Prince Street outposts--but if you’re up for braving the uptown crowds, your efforts will be rewarded with a DJ set by Brit darling Alexa Chung. Donatella Versace herself will be partying the night away at Versace…but alas, it will be the Milan boutique (désolée, New Yorkers). However, the brand won’t be lacking for star power on this side of the pond: Ciara, Taylor Momsen, Chanel Iman, Amy Sacco, and Lauren Santo Domingo will all be holding court at Versace’s 5th Avenue boutique, dancing to tunes provided by the Misshapes.
Ralph Lauren stores all over the city (yep, that’s 9 different shops) will be celebrating the retail initiative with sweet treats from cupcakes to Veuve to Nacho Figueras, who’ll host the party at the men’s store on Bleecker Street. Ralph’s biggest bash, though, will be held at the Ralph Lauren Rhinelander Mansion on Madison Avenue, with a preview and auction of selected works from the New York Academy of Art. David Lauren, Eileen Guggenheim, Live Schreiber and Eric Fischl will host, though the RL team is expecting the likes of Camilla Belle, Bar Refaeli, Blake Lively, Elettra Rossellini, Ubah Hassan, Filippa Hamilton and more making appearances partout, so keep those eyes open!
Tommy Hilfiger will also go all out with four different fêtes: at the Bleecker Street store, the Denim store on Broadway, the SoHo store, and another at Macy’s Herald Square. Music lovers of all ilks will be able to take their picks: jazz at Macy’s with Michael Fredo (and an appearance by Tommy himself), Tim Brantley on Bleecker, The Beach Girl5 at Denim, and Caitlin Crosby in SoHo.
