Last night, The Daily and French Connection stepped into spring with a cocktail and shopping event at the brand’s Soho store. Guests including bloggers Christine Cameron (My Style Pill), Amanda Oleri (East Coast Fox), Andrea Pion (A Slice o Pi), Erica Lavelanet (The Fashion Philosophy), Erik Parapar (The Dapper Method), Jeanne Grey (Grey Layers), and Jessica Steele (The Steele Maiden) sipped and shopped while DJ Jenny Albright of Isaac Likes Jenny played for guests. “My [first] French Connection piece is a floral dress I bought in college,” Grace Atwood, blogger behind The Stripe, told us. “I’ve always loved French Connection. Their dresses are amazing and they have wonderful beaded pieces. I’d wear them for sorority events and things.” Jamal Jackson, blogger behind Style Society Guy, also came out for the shindig. Considering we were at French Connection, it felt natural to ask the style star how his French is. “I don’t [speak it], but I have been to Paris!” he told The Daily. “I went to the movies one night, and the film was in French. I had no idea what was going on. They didn’t have subtitles like they were supposed to!” Models Austria Ulloa, William McLarnon, AJ Clarke, Marcus Watts, Lisa DiCicco Cahue, and legendary Vanity Fair writer George Wayne were also in attendance.
Guests shopped the parfait spring pieces featured at the store at 435 West Broadway, from punchy prints to neutral staples to swimwear, and beyond. What a night!
