It was an ampersand party extravaganza over the last couple of days with both Rag & Bone and D&G store openings in New York and L.A.
While many are saying nay to Christmas parties, Rag & Bone said yay last night at their new store opening/holiday fete. The front windows of the Christopher street store were decked out in holiday cheer with white Christmas lights and garlands framing R&B's enviable clothing. Party-goers sipped cocktails while thumbing through wracks of clothes, perhaps making notes on last minute gifts, because, hey, who doesn't love Rag & Bone? Designers/owners Marcus Wainwright and David Neville were also on hand, looking Rag-&-Bone-dapper per usual.
On the other side of the country -- and one night earlier -- D&G opened their flagship boutique in Los Angeles, and the opening drew some big-name fans. Josh Brolin showed up, smoldering as always. Other notable males were gay-fave director Bryan Singer, High School Musical star Corbin Bleu, and everyone's real favorite member of Entourage, Kevin Connolly, whose dark suit/tie combo was spot on hot.
The night was hosted by Rachel Bilson, and, given the holiday season, D&G used the event to give back a bit: From December 15 through January 15, 15% of sales at the store will be donated to The Art of Elysium, a non-profit which develops creative projects for children battling serious medical conditions. Party for the people, we always say.
The new Rag & Bone store is located in New York City at 104 Christopher Street, and the D&G flagship boutique is at 147 N. Robertson Boulevard in Los Angeles.
