Ryan Roche and Marisa Tomei


“You’ve got to have your friends,” gushed Ryan Roche at the after party celebrating her fall collection.

Pals surrounded the down-to-earth designer at the intimate Saturday evening cocktail party held in her honor by Matchesfashion at The Musket Room in Manhattan.

Shortly after arriving, Marisa Tomei sidled up to the rustically carved bar and ordered a mezcal and tequila-based cocktail.

“You’ve got to have a chance to warm up,” the actress said with a laugh.

Tomei — who has long been a fan of the blush neutral tones of Roche’s lush knitwear — chatted about her equal love of all things vintage.

“When I was young, my mom would take me to yard sales, tag sales, estate sales,” she explained. “It’s finding these one-of-a-kind things that you can’t find anywhere else, but there’s also that history layer and you’re understanding what was going on in a certain time period.”

Julianne Moore, Carolyn Murphy and Ruth Chapman were also on hand to celebrate the upstate designer’s runway show earlier in the day.
