Inside the LaQuan Smith after party

A LaQuan Smith show is a party in itself—so you can be sure the after party was one of the hottest invites in town this week. The designer celebrated his Fall Winter 2024 collection with friends of the brand at The Box, following his runway outing at Cipriani downtown on Monday night. Guests gathered for the late night bash, ignoring threats of the incoming snowstorm, to raise a cognac or two. Spotted around the club were Alton Mason, who had walked the runway hours earlier, Busta Rhymes, Duckie Thot, Ezra J. William, Isan Elba, Jasmine Sanders, Jazzelle Zanaughtti, Jenee Naylor, Joey BadA$$, Kiki Layne, Laysla de Oliveira, Lola Brooke, Marcus Allen, Meagan Good, Memphy, Oyinda, Parker Kit Hill, Serayah, Shaun Ross, Tayshia Adams, and Ava Salmaci.

Gucci shut down Soho

There were even more town cars and blacked-out-window SUVs on Wooster Street on Saturday night than usual, thanks to Gucci. The luxury label was celebrating the reopening of its Wooster Street boutique under creative director Sabato De Sarno, whose first collection for the house has now landed on the shop floor. To mark the moment, British singer Romy Madley Croft was in town (insiders will know that The XX frontwoman’s solo song, Loveher, soundtracked De Sarno’s recent runway debut.) Guests bopped to her set list, as well as opening and closing DJ sets from Amber Valentine and Oza, as they caught up over cocktails and passed bites. They also went home with Gucci Ancora posters and vinyl editions of Romy’s album Mid Air, which were distributed out of a custom-wrapped burgundy-hued (or should we say Gucci Ancora Rosso-hued) airstream. Attendees included Jessica Chastain, Daisy Edgar Jones, Elliot Page, Jodie Turner Smith, , Kingsley Ben-Adir, Allegra Shaw, Antwaun Sargent, Aurora James, Beanie Feldstein, Bibi Breslin, Blu DeTiger, Coco Baudelle, Deon Hinton, Elegance Bratton, Eliot Sumner, Eva Meloche, Gage Gomez, Garrett Carswell, Harley Viera Newton, India Mullen, Iris and Maude Apatow, Jeremy O.
