Thursday night’s launch of Scott Kuhlman’s latest upper east side men’s clothing store premiered the designer’s newest European classic lifestyle brand, S. Kuhlman. The elegantly adorned store contained racks of beautiful garments including some posh shirts that will soon accent gentlemen with panache and impeccable style.
The event, hosted by the gracious Robin Ross of Youareonthelist.com was effectuated flawlessly–from the attentive, eager servers who purveyed delicious h’orderves of mini sandwiches, spring rolls, and cheeses, provided by Elegant Affairs to the cocktails by Three-O’s Vodka, including my favorite bubble gum vodka. The alacrity of the staff almost made me forget about the delicious food including beautiful red velvet cupcakes that could’ve been the main attraction but for the presence of the lovely ladies of The Real Housewives of NYC.
The Real Housewives, (who were taping their newest season) included Bethenny Frankel with Jason Hoppy, Alex McCord, Simon Van Kempen, and Ramona & Mario Singer. Designer Richie Rich graced us with his presence as well as stylist Algera Torel, who styles Alex McCord and Simon Van Kempen.
Ornate silver plated ceilings, beautiful racks of clothing, and delicious refreshments provided the perfect backdrop for my lovely evening chatting with Real Housewife Alex McCord. Believe it or not she was even more pulchritudinous in person-especially as her and her husband Simon vanKemp were hamming it up for the cameras. Racks of gorgeous printed button downs adorned the clothing racks and Alex seemed to love picking out options for her husband who also has a strong interest in fashion and smart sense of style.
A special thanks to Robin Ross of Youareonthelist.com and S. Kuhlman for hosting the wonderful event. I now have a new found appreciation for men’s fashion!
