It seems like I was celebrating the opening of International Playground's L.E.S. boutique with Waseem, Jacob, and Diane only yesterday, so it's hard to imagine that a full year has already gone by. A lot has happened since, and the store has opened a branch in L.A. in addition to expanding their showroom from the back of the store to an enormous space in Nolita. I've also become quite close to the awesome Playground crew, Johnnie and Virginia, and not only will we be selling Triskaidekaphobia at the store this season, but we will be throwing them a big birthday bash this Thursday at Anchor Bar (310 Spring St) from 10-2. There will be an open vodka bar from 10-11, so get there early, and a whole bunch of International Playground designers will be on hand to host, including our friends Mary Meyer, Chromat, Study NY, and H. Fredricksson. As an extra special treat, we will be having designer Daniel Palillo, who is in from Finland, DJ. I've been a huge fan of his work ever since Aapo introduced it to me, and I plan on wearing one of his designs to the party. Even though Daniel isn't keen on receiving loads of attention, I couldn't help but share some of his latest work with you, including his absolutely adorable new collection for kids, and his collaboration with God's Prey. Enjoy, and I hope to see you out on Thursday!
