‘tis the season to give (and to get!), and each year we make sure our shops are brimming with colorful gifts and accouterments aplenty that we’re sure will surprise and delight. so, to kick off gift-giving season, we teamed up with a few of our favorite magazines to host festive fêtes simultaneously in our shops across the country, and many of you came out to join us for sips, snacks and holiday shopping from head to heels…

broome street, new york city

our party co-host (and one of our favorite tastemakers) avril graham, executive fashion and beauty director at harper’s bazaar, swapped fashion tips with the well-heeled crowd at our new yorkcity soiree. she also handpicked a few of her ksny favorites, including the pastiche brynn and our jewel blocks bib necklace for guests to shop, as they mixed and mingled over sweet macarons and bubbly.
