The New York Fashion Set Welcomes the French Brand Stateside
"I'm sad the secret is out," Rose Byrne admitted to Style.com last night at the new Sandro Bleecker Street store. "I'm a big fan of the Sandro brand from being in London. I guess all good things can't remain a secret forever."
The actress wasn't the only one singing the praises of Sandro and its founder-designer Evelyne Chetrite at the cocktail party celebrating the brand's U.S. arrival and a new collaboration with Dree Hemingway. "It's a new, big step for me," said Hemingway, who was sporting several pieces from her capsule collection. "The white shift dress is my favorite. You literally throw it on and it's the quintessential summer dress—whether you have big boobs, small boobs, big hips, whatever, it works."
After things wrapped up at the store, Hemingway, Chetrite, and other partygoers were shuttled over to the newly opened Le Baron, where they were joined by the likes of Penn Badgley and Zoë Kravitz. Though many guests turned in early with the big week of fashion shows ahead on their minds, a few stayed up well past midnight. On his way out, Waris Ahluwalia said, "What am I doing? I'm a designer, I have to go home!"
