On a balmy summer evening, last night, nearly 700 guests celebrated the Friends of the Highline’s first annual Summer Party presented by Coach Men’s Collection and Grey Goose Vodka.

Among the guests who grooved to tunes courtesy of DJ Jesse Marco and watched the sunset whilst refreshing themselves with spiked Grey Goose popsicles were Kellan Lutz, Jessica Szohr, Gillian Hearst Simonds, Cory Kennedy, Paz de la Huerta, Charlotte Ronson, Sky Ferreira, Sean Avery, adorable ex-SNL-er Rachel Dratch and Gossip Girl hunk Penn Badgely.

Yet  even with this celebrity-studded line-up, AVENUEinsider was seriously impressed with the special gift courtesy of Coach Men’s: complimentary Coach leather luggage tags, which were monogrammed on the premises by experts in lab coats.  We waited for ours while supping on savory bites and drinks by Brooklyn brewery and – ok we admit it – having a popsicle or two. But it was only to cool ourselves off, we promise.
