A selection of Edie Parker fall handbags.

Brett Heyman knows how to throw a good fashion-week party — and while she's at it, show her latest collection of handbags. A multifloor suite at the Plaza Athénée provided the house-party vibe — albeit a fancy one — for her fall collection, which she said was inspired by "Belle du Jour" and "Desperately Seeking Susan." Heyman referred to it as "a mash-up of the Sixties and Eighties." While a screen played the classic French film, a Pandora soundtrack blasted tunes à la Madonna's “Into the Groove.” From the Eighties, Heyman played upon punk and rock references, most notably Stephen Sprouse’s signature — and ample — use of safety pins, which adorned bag straps or embellished bags with the shape of a heart or the word “Nailed” — a double entendre quite familiar to the brand. Heyman worked broken hearts, fishnets and flames — a nod to Metallica — into key evening styles. "Thrasher," "Flaming" and "Kiss" were the phrases of the season. A velvet ribbon lacing up the front of a classic Jean clutch drew ahhs from several party guests, including Jason Wu, Paul Andrew and Candy Pratts Price.
