God Smiles On The New Museum’s Cocktail Party

-------

Ruffian’s Brian Wolk and Claude Morais, Thakoon Panichgul, the Threeasfour trio, and Marc Jacobs’ betrothed, Lorenzo Martone, were among the hosts at last night’s New Museum Next Generation cocktail party. And true to the event’s name it was a fresh crowd, although not necessarily Younger Than Jesus, the show that’s closing there this Sunday. In keeping with the theme, OMG cocktails were being served on the museum’s glass-walled seventh floor. The vodka, agave nectar, and sparkling water concoctions were named after the, ahem, hottest piece in the exhibit, Daniel Keller and Nik Kosmas’ OMG Obelisk, a black column exclaiming OMG on top in blue lights, with steel pipe torches emitting flames on either side. Not that most of the guests would’ve known. The clouds had parted after a rush-hour storm, which meant that the galleries were mostly empty. The MisShapes’ Geordon Nicol and Greg Krelenstein, et al. preferred the terrace’s sunset rays.

Through the Looking Glass at Villency

-------

With the Villency Emerging Fashion Fund now five years old, few of us question seeing stylishly outfitted mannequins in the windows of the 57th Street furniture store. The latest fashion-centric displays are now up—a coterie of mannequins sporting ensembles from the Spring 2009 recipients of the prize: Elise Øverland and Threeasfour. The latter’s wares reflect the ethereal symmetry of the Spring collection, something that they say relates to Villency’s furniture by embodying “light, reflection and transparency.” Meanwhile, leather virtuoso Øverland’s selection spans her perennial favorites, mixed in with her pale Spring wares. Be sure to check out the red leather getup that Øverland calls her “rock ‘n’ roll Santa Claus.” The windows will stay up until December 23.

Happy Birthday Peace Sign!

It looks as young as ever, but this year the peace sign turns the big 5-0. To mark the occasion, Barneys New York not only chose a Hippie Holiday theme but along with Earth Pledge asked 30 designers, including Maison Martin Margiela, Stella McCartney, Rodarte, and Giambattista Valli, to
create sustainable outfits incorporating the symbol of bohemian harmony. Pictured here is Threeasfour’s sketch. To see them all in the flesh, swing by Barneys Madison Avenue, where they’ll make their debut in the windows.

leggings get the designer treatment for spring

-------

Do you enjoy the same things as Lindsay Lohan? By which we mean, do you share the actress’ scandalous taste for leggings? If so, you’re in luck (click for slideshow). The familiar silhouette was reinvented on the Spring runways in cutout patterns at A.F. Vandevorst and Rodarte, and in a flurry of slashes at Meadham Kirchhoff and Rad Hourani. Other designers went print-mad, with bold stripes, graphic patterns, and painterly florals all making appearances. “Leggings have gone to another level; they’re not just for casual wear,” said Adi Gil of Threeasfour. “We’ve used prints that will encourage the wearer’s self-confidence and consciousness of her body.” In other words, these statement-makers require a starlet’s fearlessness. Here’s the evidence.

celebrating the original mr. beene

-------

Nearly 25 years after launching Paper magazine from her Greenwich Village apartment, Kim Hastreiter continues to wield major influence on the New York scene, and her knack for sussing out talent shows little sign of waning. But that first fan missive from a certain big-name designer was a little disconcerting. “Geoffrey Beene wrote us a letter saying ‘Oh, I love your magazine,’” Hastreiter recalled at last night’s party celebrating the publication of her new book, Geoffrey Beene: An American Fashion Rebel, at Diane von Furstenberg‘s Meatpacking District boutique. “Meanwhile, he was a famous guy and we were doing it out of my house for no money, it was a black and white foldout, and he just kept writing me letters, deciding he loved Paper for some reason.” After being introduced, Hastreiter and Beene became fast friends, with a standing monthly lunch date for the next 20 years. “He was a very eccentric, odd man while he was alive and he was a genius designer whom we all bowed down to and admired and loved,” Hastreiter said in between non-stop book-signing duties. Judging by the evening’s turnout—Doo-Ri Chung, Erin Fetherston, Narciso Rodriguez, and the Threeasfour crew all attended—a few people clearly like Hastreiter, too.
