Cameron Silver's Hollywood Pals Fête Decades Denim
In the past ten days, Decades' Cameron Silver has been in Beijing, New York City, Phoenix, and Sun Valley. But when it came time to celebrate his new denim line, the L.A.-based vintage store owner decided there was no place like home. Last night, at the Beverly Hills pad of Julia Sorkin, he toasted his latest venture with the likes of Liz Goldwyn, Lake Bell, Rose McGowan, Eva Amurri, Rachel Griffiths, and Cheryl Tiegs. An 11-piece jean collection is something of a departure for a man known for his expertise in statement-making dresses that span the eras. "I guess this is what everyone would least expect from me," Silver acknowledged. "But all of my favorite women base their wardrobes off of denim, so I figured it was the best place to start."
After a couple of hours working to the crowd, he slipped into a more intimate setting, joining close friends for a dinner at the Sunset Tower Hotel. Seated between CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund finalist Gregory Parkinson, Shiva Rose, and Balthazar and Rosetta Getty, Silver had his eye on expansion. "The denim is in 150 stores nationwide, and we're going to be featuring a full collection. So this is just the start." Mad Men's Abigail Spencer (Don Draper's season three squeeze) was already getting her head around the prospect. "Decades has a legacy all its own," she said. "But I have to say, I happen to really like this denim."
