The Launch Party, The Recap

The last two months have been collabo-city! Between DANNIJO and Gryphon I’ve had my hands full pretending I know how to design shit. Ultimately, it’s most important that I thank you, the flamingos, for liking what I do and expressing it. Really, I love your guts. But on to the events of last night: A MR DANNIJO launch party a CO-OP the new rad restaurant at The Rivington Hotel. It was a grand ol’time that offered delicious free drinks and mandatory finger ‘stache tattoos. Don’t believe me? Good. I have photo evidence. Peep what’s up below for an illustrative recap.

 MR x DANNIJO. The team, the dream, the us.
My new capes. They’re death traps but I don’t care. I can’t feel my feet today, but again, don’t care.
 Superstar assistant Molly wearing our Aram collar and her cool dude friends. She’s not wearing her friends, just the collar.
 Me and my hot chick being the only human specimen on the Lower East Side in a suit. Hey hot chick.
 Well, this is starting to look more like a family photo album than event recap isn’t it. These are my parents and my older brother @HandsomeHaim. Ladies, he’s single. And ready to mingle. Tweet him.
 The DANNIJO dream team. Say hay to Taytay. And look at that super sweet tie!
My cousin Stef. We share a birthday but she is the cooler half of our day, cue le pixie cut.
 ‘Stache town! Yes!
Well, this one is kind of a funny story. We’re not really sure who this man was but he came, he repelled, he conquered. He’s also wearing white crocs with socks. You can’t see them but trust me when I say, adorable woman repeller.
Danielle, Jodie and some other cool looking peeptrains.
 Greg! And Jodie’s wearing a Sinatra! And finally…
…Richie Rich…?
So…see you same place, same time, next week? Shop MR DANNIJO here.

    So much fun last night. I definitely had one (or two) too many of those delish watermelon cocktails! And my finger 'stache rubbed off in the shower. Woe!

    So good to meet you last night! (I was the bff of Jenna, for your reference.) xo.

    3. The cape heels are awesome and uncomfortable looking, like a sad novel painted in Sepia, Le Cape es Painful! But I'm really obsessing over anything metallic, especially with that rose gold/pink gold sheen
