Thursday night, a crowd gathered among the galleries of Chelsea for an up-close peek at Tiffany’s gorgeous new ‘T’ range. The simple, iconic bangles, rings and chains looked good on everyone who tried them and no doubt Santa’s mailbox was full by Friday morning. The jewelry was housed in a special installation at the gallery space on West 22nd Street, open to the public this weekend. From the golden era of New York’s builder barons, the train and recreated platform evoked the era of Tiffany’s original opening. For this weekend only, the installation will feature custom engraving on T purchases by one of the company’s in-house engravers on site.
While Coco Rocha, Athena Calderone and Rebecca Hall waited their turn for a try on of the jewels onboard the train, the crowd was entertained by Puddles the seven foot singing clown. For the unitiated, Puddles of Puddles Pity Club has the looks of a movie villain and the voice of well, Richard Hawley meets Tom Jones. His singing was sublime, causing the trendy crowd to cease their chit-chat and admire. Champagne was properly served in coupe glasses and the evening finished with fun, party-DJ-ing from Harley Viera-Newton.
