Outside of Henri Bendel, Sasha Pivovarova and Doutzen Kroes drew a crowd, snapping pictures and signing autographs, which was a major talent, given the masses of people that were out all over the city for the Fashion’s Night Out celebration. But who would expect anything less from these amazing models, right? Though Doutzen didn’t head into Henri Bendel, Sasha stole her entourage to check out the art she had on display. As soon as she walked into her mini art gallery, Sasha fled over to the doll in the corner, crossed her legs, fixed her arms, and plopped the Chanel bag she had been carrying on top of her as if the doll, named Dusya, was holding it. “Last Fashion Week, I was working 18 hours a day, coming back to the hotel, ordering room service, and taking the napkins to make the doll. She’s a creation of fashion, wearing Zac Posen, Prada, and Chanel boots I gave her.” In addition to the widely creative doll, Sasha’s art, inspired partially by the designs of Karl Lagerfeld, were on display, showing her talent and brilliance as an artist. If you didn’t make it to Henri Bendel, you can catch Sasha walking in Rag & Bone!
From uptown to downtown, it was a whole different scene. Lines formed outside of Bergdorf Goodman, but the block party that spanned Soho was going strong, as music spilled out onto the streets and the Fashion’s Night Out shirts were in full force. At Longchamp, Lily Cole, who just flew in today specially for the event as she’s a friend of the brand, held court in all black, with a perfect beige bag. “It’s hard to know how the night is going to turn out. We’re just playing it by ear, but I think it’s a clever thing to organize.” She’s not walking in any shows, of course, but Toronto model lovers watch out—she’s headed your way in a few days!~ Bianca Posterli
