Pre-Fashion Week Festivities

Agatha Ruiz De La Prada & Tweezerman Cocktail Party

On our way out of the madness that was Longchamp (some charity event with Fenton), we decided to walk down Wooster St. in Soho. We peaked out the corner of our eyes, a bright, whimsical store filled with laughter and champagne.

"What is this?" we wondered.

Certainly not a stop we had planned in our busy social calendars as we were on our way to Le Souk Harem's opening in nearby Greenwich Village.

It was Agatha Ruiz De La Prada's Soho store and she was launching her Tweezerman collaboration with a cocktail party.

"How lovely!" we thought, as the heavy glass doors opened to usher us into the festivities.

These limited edition tweezers in bright colors (Orange! Magenta! Blue!) and designs (Hearts! Clouds! Flowers!) purvey at fine establishments such as Saks Fifth Avenue and Sephora. Tres chic yet uber utilitarian.

Agatha, ever so gracious, spoke of her love of children who inspire her designs. My favorite was a t-shirt with an imprint of a matryoshka doll.

After a cocktail or two, we browed the racks and vowed to return and stock up on baby gifts.
