The onset of New York Fashion Week SS24 was marked by the New York City debut of luxury brand Blvck Paris at the opening night of the highly-anticipated concept shop, The Den. Founded in 2017 by French designer Julian O’hayon and acclaimed since for its ‘All Black’ apparel, accessories and leather goods, guests were treated to an immersive experience of the label that evolved, matured and is crystallising its journey with a signature design fingerprint.
To kick off their official opening night, The Den created a festive ambience withDJs Mai Shoshani and Adam Rabibo. Guests enjoyed exploring the high-end concept store curated by Yaron Cohe while sipping cocktails hosted by VOSS, Delola Spritz and Yobo Soju and hors d oeuvre’s by Regina’s Grocery. What’s more, some of the guests made their night memorable with semi-permanent tattoos from Blvck Paris’ collaboration with Inkbox!
