On The Avenue

Reed Krakoff Arrives in the Crack of Time

Friday, September 24, 2010

“Where’s Reed?” guests were mumbling at the cocktail party Reed Krakoff hosted to celebrate New York After Dark and the Directors Council of the Museum of the City of New York. There was plenty of champagne to down while guests like Amy Fine Collins, Somers Farkas, designer Alvin Valley, Gigi Mortimer (who told us she is doing an in store appearance with co-designer Courtney Moss at Saks Fifth Avenue on September 30th for her fabulous line Glamourpuss NYC), Cristina Greeven Cuomo in skinny jeans (how did she lose the baby fat after kid #3, who is only 5 months old?), Jennifer Creel (on her way to a screening of the must-see Bill Cunningham documentary), Tara Rockefeller, Yaz Hernandez, Graziano de Boni, Dayssi Olarte de Kanavos and Zani Gugelmann who always arrives at the last moment for maximum effect. Krakoff himself arrived halfway through the fete, decked as if going duck hunting in a Barbour jacket and jeans while his interior designer wife looked simple and chic in a black cocktail dress. The store is amazing by the way and guests left with a leather Hermes-like bracelet to remind us to keep coming back to shop for more RK goodies.
