H&M and Rabanne get the gang together to fête their collaboration

In case you’ve been hiding out under a rock, today H&M launched its metallic-bonanza of a collection with Rabanne. The line of womenswear, menswear, and homeware, which screams party season, was a fitting cause for a celebration last night. A bash was held at Jean’s, with many in attendance hitting the dance floor in standout sequin, rhinestone, chainmail, and disc-adorned items from the capsule. Zuri Marley was on hand to DJ a set, and the party ended at a reasonable hour—after all, guests had to set an alarm to shop the collection first thing this morning. Among those enjoying the soirée at the newly-opened Noho hotspot were Emily Ratajkowski, Paloma Elsesser, Chloë Sevigny, Deacon Phillippe, CT Hedden, Deja Foxx, Everett Williams, Harry Hill, Isaac Hindin-Miller, Josie Dupont, Karen Blanchard, Nasteha Yusuf, Nuni Yusuf, Kathryn Newton, Sami Miro, Thania Peck, Yana Bononi, Yvesmark Chery, and more.

Nordstrom and Max Mara toast to 10 years of the Teddy coat 

The first word in classic winterwear dressing, the Max Mara teddybear coat, was celebrated in style at Wolf last night. Nordstrom and its women’s fashion director Rickie De Sole welcomed tastemakers to an intimate dinner at the retailer’s eatery, with actress Keri Russell on co-hosting duty. As would be expected, based on Max Mara’s roots, Italian-inspired fare and cocktails were served—with a Pacific Northwestern twist, nodding to Nordstrom’s Seattle base. The endearing Teddy coat, which was reintroduced in 2013 after Ian Griffiths rediscovered an archival garment from 1980s that prompted him to bring back the cuddly and tactile piece, was spotted on many in attendance. The dinner brought out the likes of Cara Santana, Tina Leung, Jessica Wang, Charly Sturm, Dorothy Wang, Meredith Duxbury, and Kate Bartlett, among others. Cheers to the next decade!
