Chanel’s 57th Street boutique hosted a luncheon and preview of the Paris-Moscou 2008/2009 collection.
“We all shopped in our closets today,” declared Bettina Zilkha in a refrain that is becoming increasingly common at such gatherings.
After cocktails, guests like Jamee Gregory, Shoshanna Lonstein Gruss and Coralie Charriol Paul ascended to the third floor for tuna niçoise salads and a trunk show. And though a few in the gathering jotted down notes for their fall purchases (or wish-lists), the irony of viewing luxurious furs and Lurex-hooded looks on a steamy day was not lost on Coco Kopelman.
“I’m not ready to go back out in that 90 degree heat,” she said.
