Total Transformation

| October 23, 2013 | Parties

Barneys New York at The Grove celebrated its relaunch with a dual book signing for the company’s creative ambassador, Simon Doonan, and acclaimed fashion blogger Leandra Medine. Their sartorial tomes, The Asylum: A Collage of Couture Reminiscences...and Hysteria and Man Repeller: Seeking Love. Finding Overalls., respectively, take a witty, honest and downright funny look at the things we do in the name of fashion. Dubbed a “glamour palace” by Doonan, the newly redesigned Barneys New York (it was previously a Barneys Co-Op) provided a gleaming setting for the authors and a bevy of fashionistas eager to pose with Medine, who donned a long, coral-red dress and Golden Goose sneakers. Between tray-passed nibbles and flutes of Champagne, guests played with a special post-and-print Instagram wall—a brilliant means of capturing a stellar night! Photography by Getty and WireImage
