Everyone knows that Lela Rose throws the chicest parties. Ever the consummate entertainer, Rose’s Resort 2018 presentation was held in the Jefferson Market Garden on Greenwich Avenue, complete with a gelato stand, a floral bar where guests could create and take home their own bouquet of multi-colored roses, a stand for guests to design their own embroidered fans, and plenty of rosé. Models sat posed in such a way they could have been a painting, with one on a swing, another on a ladder, one lounging on a chaise, and another blowing bubbles—all in beautiful floral frocks crafted from exquisite fabrics.
“All of these brocades are also done in fil coupés,” Rose told The Daily. “There’s tons of details like these grosgrain ribbons and the vintage rose tattoo-inspired embroidery or the pearl inset on the sleeves of a cotton button-down. All of the collars are double collars and they’re detachable. They’re little accessories.”
Everyone, including the models, looked thrilled to be outdoors as the weather finally turned the perfect temp. “Could we not have gotten better weather?” said Rose. “We would have been screwed if it had rained! We had no backup plan and you can’t put a tent here.” But given Rose’s ability to achieve perfection with seemingly effortless ease, we’re sure she would have pulled it off. Just this morning, we spotted Rose zipping through Chelsea on her red cruiser bike with her dog Bobbin riding in his basket. She was decked out in a white puff-sleeve shirt and multi-colored tea-length skirt, looking every bit the embodiment of her brand’s image. #lifegoals
