The deliciously quirky duo Viktor Horsting and Rolf Snoeren made a rare visit to New York on Wednesday for an intimate party celebrating the fifth anniversary of their Flowerbomb fragrance. It was held in a private townhome in the West Village that looked like it had, in fact, been bombed by a giddy florist with a penchant for pink.
While waiters passed around delicate macaroons, mousse and petit fours, the small group of fashion-forward aficianados including including Liz Goldwyn, Lisa Airan, Shalom Harlow and Erin Wasson gathered in the courtyard for a four song set from Allison Goldfrapp. The singer seemed to be heavily influenced by Lady Gaga in her larger-than-life Elizabethean costume and stiff dance movements; then she turned more Marilyn Monroe as she crooned “Happy birthday” to the perfume. Bet Gaga’s never done that. Then again, maybe she has.
