There was a little bit of confusion last night at the opening party for Shanghai-based retailer JNBY’s new Soho shop. Finding it wasn’t the issue—it’s prime Soho territory, after all—but figuring out the clothes occasionally was. “I thought this was a tank top, but when I got it home, I realized it was a dress,” laughed Sophomore’s Chrissie Miller, one of the evening’s three JNBY-clad DJs, of her mini black tank. Lissy Trullie (pictured), who performed with her band, liked her JNBY outfit, too, though she also shared the confusion. “It’s very, very comfortable,” she said of her fringed black dress and jersey-and-leather moto jacket. “I love the jacket…which I think I put on the right way. It’s cool and slim to the arms, so it’s good for playing.” Puzzling or not, Cassie Coane, who also did a turn at the decks, put her finger on the label’s appeal: “It’s comfortable, plain, and looks good on anyone.”
Rapper Asher Roth and designers Anna Sheffield, Catherine Holstein, and Moises de la Renta were among those who came by for a look—though admittedly, there wasn’t a ton to look at. (The clothes were relegated to a single rack in the largely raw space.) But that should be remedied before this Saturday’s public opening. Good thing, too, as everyone seems to have summer plans in sight already. Trullie’s next album will be out at the end of the summer, and Miller is heading out to Montauk once warm weather sets in. “I’m not supposed to say this, but we might do a pop-up shop,” she told us. “We’re also going to do another video lookbook soon. And this time, it’s going to be scripted.”
JNBY opens this Saturday at 75 Greene St., NYC.
If the sudden spring weather has you thinking fling, Moises de la Renta is all for it. “New York has that whole masculine vibe in fashion, but with Mango I wanted to go back to something more classic and very romantic,” the young designer said this afternoon about his Spring collaboration with the Spanish retailer. Debuting the collection’s eight T-shirts at a presentation at the Crosby Hotel, the avowed New York kid took a turn away from your commonplace drapey and destroyed tees. Instead, inspired by a trip with his girlfriend to the Brooklyn Botanical Gardens, the junior de la Renta (his father is Oscar) was thinking flowers. One tee featured crystal-studded flowers and tulle accents, while a black number balanced gold chain-link hardware with pink petals and a sweet ribbon bow. Prices are far lower than the maison level—they range from $49.90 to $69.90—but MDLR, as he’s occasionally known, hasn’t lost the lofty dreams. “I would love to make my own line one of the big labels,” de la Renta mused.”But I also appreciate the intimate feel. My father’s line is run like a family.”

Prepare for a red-carpet death match. Gwyneth Paltrow and Nicole Kidman have signed on as costars in The Danish Girl, with Kidman playing a post-op transsexual and Paltrow her supportive wife. We know press junkets are a long way off, but we’re looking forward to the Valentino and L’Wren Scott showdowns. [EW]
