MIAMI — It could have been 1984 — some of the fashions notwithstanding.
Barneys New York chose the hip-hop culture of the Eighties as inspiration for the kickoff party of its new South Beach Co-op store last Thursday night. Breakdancers were flown in from New York and tripped the light fantastic throughout the party to an audience of rapt revelers, many of whom joined in. Outside, street performers drew a crowd as they banged on pails on the sidewalk. Even the food, catered by Barton G., was a homage to those early, gritty days, with iconic New York eats like mini hamburgers and hot dogs served on trays reflecting elaborate cityscapes.

"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
