After an extensive interior renovation, the Chloé store on Madison Avenue re-opened this week. We didn’t get to go to the welcome-back Wednesday night party, co-hosted by Vogue, but Park Avenue Peerage was there and they just published their report. Their usual collection of party pictures begins with an unusually-smiley Tinsley Mortimer.
Perhaps the socialite is all-grins because earlier that day, Ms. Mortimer had hosted a luncheon for designer Samantha Thavasa (whose bags are white-hot in Japan) at the John Jacob Astor Library in the St. Regis Hotel. The socialite must really like Ms. Thavasa, because she reportedly had peonies flown in from Chile for the midday gathering.
Joining Ms. Mortimer to toast the Chloé boutique’s new look (and get a sneak-peek at three pieces from the Guggenheim’s Young Collectors Council auction) were some usual suspects: Alexis Bryan, Amanda Hearst, Margherita Missoni, Zani Gugelmann, Marina Rust Connor and Olivia Chantecaille. While the socialites checked out Chloé’s upcoming spring collection, the sounds of guest DJ Helena Christensen filled the refashioned space.
