Friday Night Lights

-------

On any given Friday night, the corner of 14th Street and Ninth Avenue is going to be a traffic morass. But if the gridlock seemed a little heavier than usual last night, it probably had something to do with all the cabs stopping in front of Abe & Arthur’s, the joint that’s taken over the former Lotus space. Much to the surprise of guests, both Rag & Bone and Charlotte Ronson had booked their after-parties at the venue; the designers themselves only became aware of the overlap the day before. Rag was downstairs, Ronson up, and more than a few fashion VIPs found themselves walking into the wrong party by accident. C’est la vie: Pretty much everyone at both parties was landing at the Jane later, anyway. Erin Wasson had taken over the mezzanine at the hotel for her postshow soirée, but it didn’t take long for that upstairs/downstairs divide to be breached, either. Kirsten Dunst, Camille Bidault-Waddington, André, Humberto Leon, Swaim Hutson, and Kate Mulleavy were among the attendees finding room to mingle wherever they could—per usual this week, the bar was packed to the gills. Wasson herself could be found, at one point, perched on the bar downstairs waiting for a drink like a regular plebe. “I don’t really care if everyone liked the show,” she said of her blowout at the tents, which saw Gang Gang Dance playing, Bruce Willis watching, and models including Freja and Lily Donaldson walking. “All I care about is that everyone felt it.” And with that, Wasson was on to the next thing—most imminently, elbowing her way back upstairs. “Anyway,” she commented, “the show’s in the past now. And I’m all about the future.”
