In Los Angeles for a little summer vacay, Chris Benz descended upon West Hollywood boutique Beckley last night for a trunk show featuring his Fall ’09 collection. “I definitely see someone from L.A. gravitating toward some of the lighter silks in the line,” said Benz. But it’s not all work for the newly minted member of the CFDA. With BFF Eva Amurri in tow, Benz couldn’t help but mention how excited he was for his upcoming Disneyland visit, just one of many SoCal faves on the agenda. Asked if it was his first time there, Benz replied, “Oh God no. It’ll definitely be a highlight of this trip, though.”
Elise Crombez, Simon Doonan, Eva Amurri, and assorted editors and social types toasted Pollini‘s Jonathan Saunders at a lunch at La Grenouille yesterday. Saunders, whose sophomore Pollini effort will hit the runway in Milan on March 2, is in town to present his signature collection in a Chelsea gallery this Sunday night. Talk ranged from the Grammys (Radiohead took top honors for best performance) to the recession’s effect on fashion week (flats will be the footwear of choice—no town cars!) to Les Oeufs à la Neige. Those would be La Grenouille’s signature gold-dusted giant meringues. Saunders, whose plane was delayed thanks to London’s unusually wintery weather, mingled during the dessert course. Guess he’s seen enough snow. —Nicole Phelps
