STICK IT: Break out your trapper keeper — stickers are back en vogue. At least, those of the Anya Hindmarch variety are. On Tuesday evening, Barneys New York hosted a cocktail party to fete the British designer’s “Sticker Shop,” a collection of high-end embossed leather stickers, done in collaboration with Charlotte Stockdale of Chaos Fashion, meant to decorate bags, cell phones, or any other undecorated surfaces. “I love the idea of taking something really beautiful, like a bag, and disrupting it and making it a bit personal,” said Hindmarch. “Fashion should always make you smile, and I love stickers, which was my way of doing fashion at school.” The designer stayed close to the Barneys bigwigs — Mark Lee, Daniella Vitale, Simon Doonan and Tomoko Ogura — while accepting air kisses and congratulations from fans and friends. Other guests, including Mamie Gummer, Kate Foley, Sofia Sanchez de Betak,Sabine Heller and Katie Ermilio, hobnobbed around the first floor, swilling Champagne and posing for Instagram pictures against a blank wall set up with actual, removable stickers in the likeness of Hindmarch’s designs. The kitchy options were endless — smiley faces, Band-Aids, storm clouds, fried eggs, etc. As for Hindmarch’s favorite? “I quite like the one that says, ‘Slip it to me’.”
