This year’s FIT (Fashion Institute of Technology) Couture Council Annual Summer Party was held at the most idyllic of NYC locations—the Central Park boat house.

With glorious views and super-chic guests outfitted in well chosen summer fineries (as one might expect!), the FIT Summer Party is held in anticipation of the upcoming awards in September honoring the incomparable Valentino which will be chaired by style icons Anne Bass, Daphne Guinness, Charlotte Moss, and Diane von Furstenberg.

I of course felt compelled to do my summery best for this elegant fête, selecting a vintage straw hat by Lock, Tom Ford “Spencer” sport jacket in rose silk linen basket weave, “Regency” pants in pink & green silk cotton madras check, white cotton french cuff shirt, bone suede loafers, pocket square in pink, and white silk retro print from Charvet Paris, vintage moonstone cuff links and my fragrance is Creed Royal Water.

    The hat adds a neat twist James! I like it!

  12. James Andrew says:

    Hello Nick,

    I am loving the idea of wearing hats and encouraging people to sport them as a great way to complete a look.

    I found this vintage hat at flea market, in it’s original box ,unused and very well priced.

    Cheers

    JA

    You must have been the king of the party. Congratuations!

  14. Oonagh says:

    I love the hat, all the more so because it’s vintage, and a bargain! Sadly in these enlightened days, Lock & Co do not practice fair trade in the sourcing of their Panamas, hence I had to buy mine elsewhere.

    Pink has never been done so right!
