On a sunny April 4 spring afternoon, New York’s chicest ladies gathered at The Apartment By The Line to toast their friend and designer Gabriela Hearst’s spring 2016 collection.

At this fashionable power luncheon, stylish attendees like stylist Vanessa and her sister Victoria Traina, Rickie De Sole Webster, Indre Rockefeller, Amy Larocca, Alexandra Fritz Khoudari, and other fashion world denizens got a preview of Hearst’s elegant dresses and separates.

Ladies who lunch were treated to wine and cocktails, as well as some light lunch delicacies like the Lobster Towers, and decadent desserts. The table setting mirrored some of Hearst’s new collection’s blue tones, with the blue and white Chinese porcelain plates table settings and embroidered napkins adding a touch of casual glamour.

Luncheon’s guests were surprised with favor gift boxes as they browsed the spring line that was one part urbane elegance and one part luxe minimalism, and is sure to fly off the shelves at Barneys once it hits the floors.
