The young and fashionable arrived in hoards Tuesday night to help Paper Magazine and Burberry Brit celebrate the opening of the brand’s newest location in the West Village. Paper Market Editor Luigi Tadini played host to the bevy of young beauties that piled into the space, most decked out in their Burberry best for the occasion. Hannah Bronfman, Chelsea Leyland and Tadini all rocked some serious leather jackets from the Fall collection (Leyland’s could quite easily take an eye out), while Dalia Oberlander and Lady Alice St. Clair opted for more delicate options, sporting a chic leather skirt-metallic blouse combo and white-hot peek-a-boo frock respectively.

Party-goers were happy to munch on sliders and crab cakes while catching up over champagne and vying for a $500 Burberry giftcard in a contest for the best Instagram photos of the night. Entries were displayed on screens throughout the store and made for a hilarious party game.

Make sure to check out the fantastic new location the next time you’re passing through the West Village. With the Fall weather fast approaching it’s the perfect place to nab yourself a slick trench or embellished leather jacket.
