Mulberry ♥’s NY.
Following the opening of their brand new flagship store at 134 Spring Street last Tuesday, they celebrated their 40th birthday party by throwing a lavish bash on the roof top of Skylight West on Monday night.
We sipped margaritas and scoffed down the canapés before taking to the multi-coloured lit dance-floor to rock out to Kasabian who played a 45 minute set.
A balloon artist made us animal shaped balloons and hats which was a fun addition to the party.
My friend from New York Daily News and I set about looking for the celebs at the party.
Maggie Gyllenhaal: The actress quietly sat in the corner looking effortless and serene wearing a Mulberry Tille wrap dress from the Fall 2011 collection. She added a simple black blazer to her print dress and carried a Mulberry ‘Effie’ satchel from the Resort 2012 collection.
Solange Knowles: The face of Rimmel cosmetics is one of the nicest celebrities I have ever met. She’s beautiful and happy to talk to randoms like me. She wore a Mary Katrantzou Vienouas silk-georgette reversible shirt dress with Nicholas Kirkwood for Rodarte gold wedges whilst carrying a Mulberry ‘Fox Lock’ bag. She was impressed that I was able to name all her pieces (girl, this is what I do). I was stumped on her jewelery which she told me was by Lia Sophia.
Rose Byrne: As you know I have a mild
large girl crush on Rose Byrne. The Australian actress was glowing wearing a Mulberry Resort 2012 gold pleat dress. I love the pop of colour via her aqua blue earrings. A white Mulberry mini ‘Taylor’ bag from the Resort 2012 collection and nude pumps I wasn’t too fond of completed her look.
Alexa Chung: My friend from the New York Daily News was very excited to see Alexa Chung at the party. After a little pep talk he went on his merry way to interview the British star. He returned long face saying, “I got nothing.” Whilst doing my “I told you so” dance, I observed that Alexa was wearing a really cute Mulberry ‘Polly Push Lock’ trench over a ruffle collar blouse. Black pants, Charlotte Olympia ‘Kitty’ flats and her namesake mini ‘Alexa’ from the Resort 2012 collection completed her look.
Michelle Trachtenberg: The ‘Gossip Girl’ actress wore a navy cowl-neck top with a Mulberry ‘Annie’ skirt. She completed her look wearing her co-designed Stuart Weitzman Young Hollywood Cares Collection pumps.
Louise Roe: The British TV presenter wore a Mulberry Tillie wrap dress with a devore feathered friends print. The fashion week front row regular completed her look with a Mulberry ‘Postman’s Lock’ cross-body bag.
