At Gilt Groupe, our favorite part of starting a new business is definitely the launch party. Last night we celebrated the launch of our new men’s full-price website, Park & Bond. The site actually goes live in a week, but we got ahead of the game with our friends from the fashion and entertainment industries. We gathered at Andrew Carmellini’s newest SoHo restaurant, The Dutch, a perfect venue for our stylish guests, including Neil Patrick Harris and his friends, and Kyle MacLachlan. Also among the well-tailored crowd were designers Thom Browne and Yigal Azrouel, along with friends from Burberry, John Varvatos, and Duckie Brown.
A chalkboard with the Park & Bond logo led our guests to the private back room, where we started with cocktails and hors d’oeuvres. But the pièce de résistance were the grand shellfish platters, which were placed on the tables as guests took their seats. Park & Bond President John Auerbach and DMM Brooke Cundiff welcomed everyone and spoke about exciting developments for the new site, and from there the party continued late into the night. Check out the full pictures on Gilt MANual and begin shopping on Park & Bond on Monday, August 8th.
