Hugo Boss and Men’s Health: no unfashioned man left behind!

03 Apr

by Yulia Mikhalchuk

Neiman Marcus at Mazza Gallerie invited everybody on Thursday evening for fashionable but rare event in DC – it was all about men! Hugo Boss is landing in Neiman, and so many very special guests came to celebrate the fact. Although we see men’s fashions on the runways around the city, it is very unique to concentrate on men and men only! Matt Birk, Baltimore Ravens Center (and father of 6 at 35!) and fashion director of “Men’s Health” Brian Boye performed an interview, and then Matt signed limited edition pictures, to the joy of fans. Throughout the event, guests very much enjoyed Manhattans and wine and fingerfoods by  Fiola restaurant.

Enjoy the pictures!

The 60ss, the steak, and the fashion

29 Mar

by Yulia Mikhalchuk

The night of March 25 was very well anticipated and buzzed about way in advance. It was THE_Mad_Men_night, when season 5 premiere aired. Many venues around the city (public and private) hosted viewing parties, but of course I will tell you about the one I attended, – in Bourbon Steak at Four Seasons DC. Private lounge was pure resemblance of that era, from beautiful outfits to floral table treatments, from waitresses’ uniforms to the drinks’ recipes… The only difference there were… nobody smoked (phew!) Two hours of season kick-off flew in a blink, and food and drinks never ended (too bad somebody had to drive home!)  Please enjoy the pictures!

Regarding the movie itself… I would say, it was “okay” appetizer – good enough to tease but not good enough to fully satisfy. It felt a little flat, like it was rushed and not thought out, like producers decided to rest on the clouds for a while. It would get full house anyway, why bother too much! Of course, fashions were impeccable. To me the most impressive is always not what leading actresses wear, but large crowds appearing on the screen for literally seconds!

Question of the evening – WHERE IS BETTY?

Sarah Mais and Gavin W Bowie

Amazing salad with marshmallows!

martini and olive

Vintage coat of Cyndy Esty

marvelous dessert!

Yes it is spring in Four Seasons!

Elie Tahari’s spring fashions

19 Mar

by Yulia Mikhalchuk

Many Tahari’s fans concentrated in “Wear now” on Three in Saks Fifth Avenue Tysons this Saturday.  Freshest spring fashions (and in this weather it feels like it’s time for the fall trends) were presented in very brief but substantial fashion show the spectators got to absorb what’s on this season. Neutrals and subtle colors, nothing edgy, all very classy and feminine, as it always happened under Tahari brand. Sangrias and delicious fingerfoods were riding trays all around, shopping was active, and somebody won a clutch in a raffle!

Enjoy the pictures as usual.

Casey Jacket (middle) available here for $598.00. Grayson sleeveless dress (second from right) available here for $328.00
