WHAT IS JAMES WEARING? Rotating Header Image

FIT Couture Council Summer Party

I was thrilled to attend the FIT Couture Council Summer party accompanied by my beautiful young stylist friend Lauren Solomon. This perfect summer soirée was held at the equally perfect townhouse of style icon and fellow interior designer Charlotte Moss, and organized by the Couture Council in support and celebration of the museum at the Fashion Institute of Technology (Museum at FIT). As you might imagine this super glam event drew some of the most noted fashion players in NYC like Vogue’s Hamish Bowles .

I wore my white cotton pique suite with black and white mother of pearl buttons by Gucci (I don’t know what it is about this gorgeously simple suit but it’s a head turner). A shocking pink cotton shirt with white collar and french cuffs by Turnbull and Asser provided a brilliant pop of color, black patent belt with silver leather trim and grommets by Gucci and black, white and silver leather loafers also by Gucci. Hair by Tim Rogers at Sally Hershberger.

I turned to my dear friend, the independent jeweler Raj Tolaram to provide me with some extraordinary vintage David Webb cufflinks from the 60’s – gold tigers with emerald eyes! as well as a very handsome elongated Cartier tank watch with black alligator band. Tolaram specializes in ladies jewelry and is well worth contacting should you be looking for an absolutely heart-stopping piece.

    Another fab shot ! Love your suntan with the all the white, loved seeing the cufflinks and watch. How fun to get to see Charlottes house ! I heard she closed the shop . Did I tell you I attended FIT ? I was SO lucky to have the old Parsons faculty, including Stanley Barrows, and Albert came and spoke to us, which was a highlight. Bill Blass was our commencement speaker. The museum at FIT is incredible. The last time I was in NY, I tried to visit my alma mater, and security would not let us in, even though I had my alumni ID card. I guess post 9-11 is pretty tough. Anyway, thanks for sharing James. More please sir !!!

    As usual James, another show stopper. Very chic! What a huge treat to be at Charlottes home. Love the cuff links. All fantabulous.

    I am a big fan of watches, especially Cartier. (I have a classic one myself). The watch in the photo is absolutely sassy!
