LASTEST

Friday Fête: AGENT, Louis Vuitton, and Roland Mouret

This week’s Friday Fête was sprinkled with more fashion events than usual, and we’re more than okay with that. Below, find our hot round-up of events that stunned each day this week.

Monday was a day full of appointments and shows, while Tuesday was an event-hop—from uptown to downtown. We started at Louis Vuitton on Madison Avenue to attend the pop-up shop of the new men’s spring/summer 2018 collection. Part of a traveling experience (with additional stops in Miami, Los Angeles, and Hawaii), the brand’s series highlights colorful prints. We got a taste of the tropics inside the store, admiring an island-themed retro van parked near the ready-to-wear, shoes, accessories, and more.

From there, we traveled downtown to Mulberry Street to celebrate the opening of AGENT’s first collection, Foreword, and store opening. The thought-out collection by co-founders and designers Joshua Fronda and Terrance Williams—full of quality pieces like Long John-inspired trousers, rich and structured fabrics, and unforgettable shoes—wowed fashion and art lovers alike.

Wednesday, we traveled back uptown to Roland Mouret’s lovely townhouse-turned-boutique for a cocktail reception with Mouret, and artist and poet Cleo Wade. The celebration was one for the designer’s first fragrance, Une Amourette, and featured live music by singer Tei Shi and a live reading  by Wade from her new book Heart Talk. As guests made their way through the space, they were greeted with an intimate feeling of being home. Mouret has artworks from his personal collection hung on the walls, and kept the rooms’ original design, allowing visitors to feel the privacy of trying on garments in the bedroom and powder room.

On our way home, we swung by Bar Belly in the Lower East Side. Formerly Lead Belly, the recently opened location offers newness to the space, with a revamped cocktail list, men, and live music. Airstream-inspired rooms evoke an American vibe, with white-washed walls and vintage suitcases welcoming guests to a summer vacation.

And last night we visited Bergdorf Goodman for an evening reception on the seventh floor with Bergdorf Goodman Fashion Director Linda Fargo, and Marin Hopper and Brooke Hayward of Hayward and Hopper. To celebrate the opening of Hayward and Hopper’s street window display (on view through March 26), presented by Jet Blue, and in-store pop-up shop, the event welcomed guests to explore a selection of unique furniture, books, are, and more. Portraits of Marin’s mother, Brooke Hayward, and her father, icon Dennis Hopper, were seen among furniture by designers like Frank Gehry, Samuel Marx, and John Vesey.
