Raleigh Denim‘s husband and wife design team Sarah and Victor Lytvinenko mingled through a lively crowd at their first NYC store opening party, with everyone from raw denim lovers to bloggers and It-crowd staples in the mix. Patrons drank home-grown Raleigh moonshine from glass tanks suspended from the ceiling and spun a denim ferriswheel below a grid structure speckled with paper airplanes. Sound amazing? There was also popcorn. Check out party pics below.
Be sure to visit Raleigh (211 Elizabeth Street) and score yourself an amazing pair of jeans from their (always) limited edition line.

Strolling in Soho the other evening, we realized that “outside looking in” isn’t always a bad thing. We peered beyond the neon signage of the GAP 1969 boutique (Broadway & Spring Street) at a cool spring style paradise. For the ladies, we loved the cream-colored stretch-denim pants paired with the chocolate v-neck top. For the guys, rolled up jeans in the same hue were paired with rugged brown work boots and a leather belt. Two looks to turn heads and keep the preppy vibe alive. Next time, we’re walking in!
