In celebration of the French Bastille Day and the launch of Andre Saraiva’s new shirt design for Saint James, the Frenchiest of the French gathered at The Standard Hotel’s Le Bain for a fete of champagne, cocktails, great music and incredible fireworks. Maria Cornejo, illustrator Jean-Philippe Delhomme and Gaspard de Dreuzy enjoyed St. Germain‘s social lubricaton with a Bastille-themed cocktail, “La Guillotine” featuring its signature elderflower liqueur from the French Alps of course. Other guests included Erin Krause, Genevieve Jones and Colin Tunstall of New York shop Saturdays Surf NYC. Saraiva’s better half, Annabelle Dexter-Jones was mysteriously missing from the crowded party, but considering the promos for the shirt feature the couple frolicking in the surf, we doubt there’s any trouble in paradise for those two.

The shirts, which were originally designed as the new uniforms for the staff at the Standard will be sold for a limited time at Opening Ceremony.
