Paraty-me. Designersocial Popup @Sloan/Hall.
If you’re wondering what we’ve been up to @designersocial, we’ve been hoarding our best loot for couture lovers in our new favorite city. Our second retail location is set to open this spring in H-Town, and until then we’re hosting three pop-up trunk shows, the first of which is taking place this week!
If you’ve been coveting an Hèrmes Birkin, Chanel Flap Bag or Celine Luggage Tote then join us tomorrow for a VIP cocktail reception and preview party at Sloan/Hall. Enjoy live music, lite bites and valet parking; and pick up last minute Christmas gifts at one of Houston’s preeminent retail venues (think Peter Pilotto, Balmain and awesome coffee table books to boot).
Where: Sloan/Hall- 2620 Westheimer, Houston TX
When: Wednesday, December 12. 630-830p.
(Pop-up open through Friday 12/14.)
Hope to see you there!
Every so often something hits my in-box that grabs me- something I haven’t seen before. Feast your eyes on these arresting images from Parisian designer, Marie Seguy. À mon avis, the beauty of the line lies in the modernist shapes and architectural construction, which as it turns out is not a coincidence. Marie studied architecture and used the skills she honed at university as a jumping off point for an amazing career in fashion. Beauty transcends every discipline and Marie’s work is a raw but perfect example of that.
