Last night, VFiles threw their fashion week fÃªte at newly-minted hautespot Bow. Downtown chicsters crowded the Bowery to fight their way through a jam packed door (all the best bashes have them, after all) to party with the style set like V’s Cecilia Dean, Derek Blasberg, Harry and Peter Brant, Caroline Murphy, Raquel Zimmerman, Italo Zucchelli, Kate Lanphear and Brad Goreski. DJ May Kwok spun, and Theophilus London performed to the hyped crowd. Post-performance, London kept the party going with the likes of Hannah Bronfman. The Kills’ Alison Mosshart showed up looking perfectly punk in a leather jacket and multi-colored locks. As for the surprise guest? P’Trique, from S**T Fashion Girls Say, showed up and was the toast of the party. Not to surprisingly, he’s been quite the toast at the tents, too, as far as the Twitter scene is concerned.
WHAT: Nicholas Kirkwood Metallic Leather Slippers…WHY: Celebrate our 10th Anniversary with color popping pink (it’s our fave)! It’s as if Nicholas Kirkwood designed them just for our birthday, right? The metallic slippers contrast a mirror-like pink leather with light-rose trims. The bubblegum hue may inevitably capture the attention of fashion week photogs and garner a compliment or two from fellow chicettes in the process…AVAILABLE: $$710, Net-a-Porter.com…
