The Frick Collection Summer Soirée was a spectacular success with over 400 in attendance, and WIJW would like to thank many of our friends for showing up in such great style!

Guests brought an elegant lawn-party vibe to the event, with graceful gals bedecked in beautiful hats and summery colors, and, lest they be overlooked, even the boys donned duds in gorgeous shades of pink, orange and green—the whole thing was just as Bill Cunningham put it, “marvelous.”

It was lovely to see such a variety of people excited about The Frick Collection, and I had so many great conversations regarding the glorious surrounds—the Russel Page garden and the spectacular Frick Collection. Furthermore I was quite moved to hear that many have found inspiration in what we’ve been sharing here on WIJW!

There are only a few truly exceptional events in NYC that have the power to elevate the spirits like a party at the Frick, but if you missed the Summer Soirée, not to worry. The Frick is a dream to experience any time! We’ll be sharing more regarding the two exhibitions currently on view, In a New Light: Bellini’s St. Francis in the Desert, and Turkish Taste at the Court of Marie-Antoinette in an upcoming post.

Beyond thrilled to be a part of such a splendid evening, I’m sporting my new Tom Ford “Snowdon” suit in lilac rose silk wool linen melange twill, a bespoke Turnbull and Asser turquoise herringbone cotton shirt with contrast white collar and french cuffs, Seaman Schepps precious turquoise cuff links, purple alligator belt with sterling buckle by Ralph Lauren, Charvet turquoise silk pocket square, purple and turquoise floral silk tie and Tom Ford saddle leather loafers are Tom Ford. For such an elegant evening, my fragrance is Creed Imperial Millesime.

    It sounds like it was a wonderful evening.

    I look forward to your review of the exhibitions.

  2. Interesting suit color – where did you find that fabric?

  3. Did Tom For supply it or did you buy it somewhere else?
    I visited the Frick Collection back in 2006 when I was in NYC and I really liked the house. Is sounds like you had a great time at the Soirée.

    Hello Sven,

    Thanks for all your feedback and support!

    Actually the Tom Ford suit was right off the rack, despite the appearance that I may have had it made by the must exquisite tailor.



  5. Dear James,

    I am sure it was a great event, I think the Frick is one of my favorite places…….

    James, suena maravilloso, qué ganas de haber estado allí! Espero que la próxima vez que vaya a NY coincida con alguno de esos eventos!
