Thanks to my friend Nana who runs the Lie SangBong shop in Meatpacking District, I’ve been lucky to go see their shows at New York Fashion Week. (See previous Lie SangBong posts.) A week ago, I went to see their Spring/Summer 2016 collection followed by an afterparty at their store in Meatpacking.
Gorgeous pieces with clean white lines opened the show. (Collection will be available in the shop in March of next year.)
A couple of hours later, it’s time for the afterparty at the store! Take a closer look at the tiles where you can make out a kaleidoscope of models and designs from previous shows.
All in the family! On the right is the designer (Lie SangBong) with his daughter Nana, the director of the New York store, and his son Chung Chung who designs the LIE collection.
Guests of the afterparty were treated to specially created cocktails by sponsors Chalait and Beefeater Dry Gin. Michelle at Chalait, quite possibly the most Instagrammed coffee shop with their gorgeous matcha drinks, created Matcha Mint Fizz and Watermelon G&T. So refreshing and tasty on a hot summer evening.
(Like the previous tea events at Lie SangBong, I helped to organize this pairing of Chalait and Beefeater Dry Gin with Lie SangBong.)
And that wraps up the Spring/Summer 2016 collection at NYFW! You can see the Fall/Winter collection shown this past February in the shop now. Oh, that camel coat!
