What with the snow falling yet again on New York fashion week, it was tempting, yesterday, to fantasize about hopping a plane bound for L.A., sans return ticket. As it turned out, the snow abated by early evening, and the party for the Tenoversix pop-up at the Manhattan location of The Future Perfect brought the City of Angels to us. If founders Brady Cunningham and Kristen Lee can’t import the sunshine, they have, at least, transplanted Angeleno style: Some of the greatest hits from their popular West Hollywood boutique have been stocked on a compact cart at the front of The Future Perfect, including eighties-inspired jewelry by Rowena Sartin, Tenoversix-brand shoes, a curated collection of CDs, and Rodin essential oils, which Cunningham reports are selling out of the L.A. store the same day they’re stocked on its shelves. “We started out thinking we’d just have L.A. designers, but then we realized it was more about creating an L.A. vibe,” she explained, pointing out that the intricately hand-beaded jewelry by Brokenfab, a Lee discovery, actually comes from England. At the party, Brooklyn-based Bodkin designer Eviana Hartman brought a little local flavor to the proceedings as well. Her band, Open Ocean, played a set out of fuzzed-out rock for the packed crowd.
