Mary Katrantzou doesn't make it to New York often, but when she does, she goes to Indochine. To celebrate five years of her business, MAC Cosmetics hosted a dinner at the designer's favorite restaurant last night, and Katrantzou was living it up. "It isn't every day there's a party where everyone wears my clothes," she told Style.com.
Arden Wohl paired her Katrantzou with printed booties from her own Cri de Coeur vegan shoe collection, and Hannah Bronfman paired her sneaker-printed MK dress with actual sneakers. Over dinner, Fivestory's Claire Distenfeld waxed lyrical about what makes Katrantzou's dresses appealing: "No matter how you wear it, despite all the color and all the prints, there's an innate purity to it."
The designer was so busy going table to table catching up with friends that she didn't even end up eating. No matter—she'll be back again in a few months. "I can't wait to see New Yorkers wearing some of the lace pieces from Fall. You can wear them with a biker jacket, or on their own, sheer, to show off your body," she said. "A New Yorker is confident and likes to wear things her way."
