LoveShackFancy celebrates new homeware range with fairytale, fairy-light dinner
To step inside a LoveShackFancy store is to step into a dream world, so you can imagine the delight that awaited guests as they stepped into the home and lush gardens of founder Rebecca Hessel Cohen and her husband Todd Cohen. In short: a French Renaissance-meets-Alice in Wonderland-style smorgasbord of pink toile, tulle, and to-die-for frocks. The event was hosted at the couple’s Sagaponnack home to toast the brand’s recently-debuted pretty printed bedding and wallpaper offering. Between the antique chandeliers hanging from the trees, a canopy of lights overhead, a heavenly pink and white tablescape created in collaboration with Fiona Leahy, and the new merchandise on display in vintage daybeds and cars, there were more photo moments than anyone could count. Among those in attendance were Alice Naylor Leyland (aka Mrs. Alice), Emily DiDonato, Genevieve Angelson, models Aamito Lagum, Aube Jolicouer, and Hannah Donker, Priya Shukla, Mollie Acquavella, Grace Givens, Carolyn Angel, Valerie Macauley, Casey Fremont, Lili Buffett, Claire Olshan, and more.
