IT’S OFFICIEL: Fashion magazine L’Officiel feted its 90th anniversary on Saturday night with a party at Maxim’s. Interior designer Vincent Darré decked out the legendary venue with furniture, posters and lights from different epochs. “Partying in historic Parisian landmarks never gets old,” said designer Alexis Mabille, who later this month is heading to Singapore to show his couture collection.
French singer Raphaël Haroche admitted he rarely attends fashion week events. “They offered me to come grab a drink, and I was thirsty,” he said, among the crowd bottlenecked in the stairwells leading to Maxim’s maze of small rooms. Arielle Dombasle and French singer Dani entertained guests with a few classic French tunes. “It is a wonderful place,” enthused Dani, looking around at the belle epoque club.
