L.A. Art Scene In Full Bloom

-------

“This is always one of my very favorite parties to come to,” said Jenni Kayne at the Hammer Museum’s Gala in the Garden in L.A. on Saturday. The annual benefit bash was an animated affair—literally, in this case, honoring The Simpsons creator Matt Groening and artist Lari Pittman.

Kayne was in good company. Will Ferrell, John C. Reilly, Jack Black, and Neil Patrick Harris all came to take in the scene, as well as to check out the Ed Ruscha exhibition, which was kept open for the duration of the evening. (Bruno Mars was on hand to perform, if all that wasn’t entertainment enough.)

Keeping up the fashion quotient of the evening were Kate and Laura Mulleavy of Rodarte and Monique Lhuillier (pictured). “It’s about supporting the arts, in every form,” Lhuillier said. The arts, in turn, have been supporting her. “In this last collection, I did have a lot of brushstrokes,” she said. “[Artist] James Nares was a very big influence in the prints that I created.”

Heirlooms In The Making In L.A.

-------

Trends come and trends go, but simplicity is chic forever. That’s the design philosophy behind Mannin, the line Suzanne Donegan founded to create “the seven basics of the jewelry wardrobe.” (Fashion historians will hear echoes of Donna Karan’s classic Seven Easy Pieces.) The Mannin collection has since grown, but its spirit remains the same—and that’s a spirit that appeals to L.A. designer Jenni Kayne, who has curated a selection of Donegan’s designs for her West Hollywood shop. “I think we share a similar sensibility, which is based on wearability and practicality but always feels cool and new,” Kayne said. “Her jewelry complements my collection in the best way.” Customers have responded to the well-edited selection of recycled-gold pieces, as well as a new option—monogramming. Kayne even had her own signet ring hand-engraved with her husband and son’s initials. Donegan was quick to point out that her pieces are meant to be collected as heirlooms. “With the engraving, each piece becomes unique and special. The jewelry can be passed down through families and through the generations,” she said. Which, Kayne noted, was exactly her intention.

Mannin is now available at Jenni Kayne, 614 Almont Drive, West Hollywood, (310) 860-0316.

Hey, Four Eyes

-------


Just when we thought the whole trendy “I Tried To Be Terry Richardson But All I Got Were These Lousy Glasses” phase had fizzled out, something is going on with spectacles. Jenni Kayne had oversize plastic frames, Antonio Azzuolo used 60′s and 70′s Italian deadstock, and Scott Sternberg borrowed metal ones from Silver Lining Opticians. They’ve kind of 70′s detective and early 80′s working girl (like the chick in the best Cinderella screenplay ever The Secret of My Succe$s, but I digress). Who knew four eyes could be so sexy? What do you think? Would you wear them?

Getting Friendly With Andy Lecompte

-------

Newly reunited friends Rachel Zoe and Nicole Richie and old “friends” Sam Ronson and Lindsay Lohan all stopped by Andy LeCompte’s intimate little Thursday night party, co-hosted by his friend Jenni Kayne, at the stylist’s West Hollywood salon. Lohan, who wore a sexy vintage seventies Azzedine Alaïa frock with a new pair of Alaïa boots, mentioned that she’s currently recording an album. Of her something-old-something- new-look, the newly trim actress explained she buys mostly new these days, but remains a fan of vintage and even owns a Chanel dress designed by Coco herself. Over popcorn, Champagne, and candy, LeCompte, who opened the salon with business partner Leanne Citrone, said he’s back on tour with Madonna come this summer in Europe and that he recently styled her for an upcoming W magazine spread.
