It was party time in Nolita—at Mediterranean restaurant Rin Tin Tin on Monday, September 21, to be exact. Guests came together to toast to the sunny new partnership between LIZWORKS, artist Vik Muniz, and Selima Optique who created a limited edition eyewear artwork named, “HAPPY VIEW.”


The design of the piece is a photograph of nine bright and colorful sunglasses against a sky blue background with clouds on a Lucite box, which opens up to the actual eyewear inside. Attendees including Vik Muniz, Liz Swig, Selima Salaun, Sebastian Scolarici, and Darren Star snapped photos throughout the party while sporting the stylish sunnies. Hor d’oeuvres and drinks were also served and it was one big happy evening indeed.
