Picture a Web site that is eBay meets Pinterest with a dash of Instagram thrown in for good measure, and you’ve got a pretty good idea of what The Cools (www.thecools.com) is. It’s a personalized online bazaar curated by likeminded tastemakers, no weeding through pages of junk necessary. “I get e-mailed so much stuff and one thing I happened to click on was this site. I saw like three things I hadn’t seen before that I wanted and one of the three that I could afford, so I thought ‘cool,’ ” The Hole gallery founder Kathy Grayson told Style.com last night at The Cools’ first Jamboree event, which brought the online experience to life. For the occasion, site founder Olivier van Themsche took over the sprawling 15,000-square-foot Old School in Nolita and gave local designers and restaurants, including Grayson, Erin Fetherston, Bing Bang’s Anna Sheffield, What Goes Around Comes Around, Selima, and Miss Lily’s each a classroom to take over and market their offerings. “The offline events are a key part of The Cools,” van Themsche said. “The nature of creatives is to engage with other creatives—I plan to make the Jamboree recurring and it will evolve into a sort of ‘curated’ cool kids’ flea market, which will pop up in New York and also in Paris, Milan, etc.”
The result was a laissez-faire bash that drew a line of people (including Hanne Gaby Odiele, Waris Ahluwalia, Fiona Byrne, and Scott Lipps) wrapped around the block on Mott Street waiting to get in. At one point, the police even arrived to break up the festivities. Things were indeed getting a bit rowdy in the space Miss Lily’s restaurant turned into a Jamaican dancehall complete with dance lessons, reggaeton beats, and an emcee. Across the hall, skateboarders were tearing up a half pipe set up by aNYthing, and a floor below, The Hole was selling $100 psychedelic drawings and Sheffield was teaching guests to knit friendship bracelets. Grayson’s favorite part was the room devised by indie film director Adam Green (who was dressed kind of like Captain Crunch), which featured large video game props from his feature film The Wrong Ferrari. “I have a soft spot for anything analog versus digital, and I thought the movie was funny,” said Grayson. “Plus, he was dressed cool and I can pretend in my head he is my new boyfriend.” Overall, it was a rollicking success, and van Themsche plans to hold court over similar events on a monthly basis. Erin Fetherston, who displayed sketches of her ethereal dresses, said, “Olivier has created the ultimate hipster social-commerce platform. There is nothing comparable in the social/e-commerce space that provides the taste level, art direction, or community that the The Cools offers.”
From electric raver gear to effortless jumpsuits and flouncy dresses, the styles at this past weekend’s 20th annual Lollapalooza were a grab bag of predictably quirky ensembles. But of course, not all the action was in the crowd—there was plenty to see on the festival’s stages, too.
