Last Friday night I was so excited to be back in New York to officially celebrate the opening of our fifth store on the cutest street of the Cobble Hill neighborhood in Brooklyn. xcv The night had a bingo theme, starting with this poster that greeted guests as they walked through the door at Bergen Street. Tamu McPherson was in from Milan and graciously co-hosted the event with me. This was right before she discovered the Annie Costello Brown earrings that she had on the rest of the night. Interiors beautifully shot by Sidney Bensimon. Aya Kanai came by with her Claude and Discotheque Tee. The Bergen Street clutch that we printed to celebrate the opening in action, as seen on Lauren Sherman. The incredibly gorgeous girls of Urban Bush Babes. Ciprianna Quinn took some great shots of the store's interior. From the store, we walked over to June Wine Bar a few blocks over for dinner, vin, and you guessed it...bingo! The lighting reminded me of the perfect French brasserie. The set-up on each table with CV jewelry pouches filled with bingo chips. Florence Kane, from Glamour - and Jean Stories - at dinner! She had our Jean Stories x Clare V. Washed Denim Flat Clutch in hand. Chloe King from Bergdorf Goodman arriving at dinner with her new Spring '16 Alice! Garance and Aya in one of my favorite photos of the night. And after-hours antics with these ladies. The perfect end to the perfect evening. A bîentot BK!
