New York Fashion Week officially ended last Wednesday (Until we meet again…), but the fashion set came out for one last party on Friday night at The Jane Hotel. The occasion was the 2nd anniversary of recent Fashion Media Award winner Lenny and their partnership with Cole Haan. Lenny creators Lena Dunham and Jenni Konner were joined by Tom Mora, Zosia Mamet, Edward Norton, Ruth Wilson, Julia Stiles, Bridget Everett, Christian Siriano, Cynthia Rowley, Jenna Lyons, Prabal Gurung, Timo Weiland, Rosie Perez, Todd Oldham, Chris Benz, Andreja Pejic, and Kathy Najimy to toast the Extraordinary Women, Extraordinary Stories campaign.
“What began as my raging overshare became a thrilling collaboration when we learned that Cole Haan is spending its fall season focused on the concept of extraordinary women and what makes them so (spoiler: It’s not their ability to strut in heels),” Dunham recently wrote about their partnership. “At Lenny, we celebrate the everyday extraordinary. A huge part of our mission is to remind our readers that just by daring to live on their own terms, they are breaking the mold. And that their stories — even the quiet, quotidian ones — have the power to connect and unify, to soothe and inspire.” Cole Haan recently released their new ad campaign pairing Karlie Kloss and Christy Turlington, which was shot by Cass Bird and styled by Karla Welch.
The evening included portrait sessions by illustrator Hallie Bateman, and custom poetry written on site by Jacqueline Suskin. Girl power in full effect.
