Afternoon Tea: 10.27.08

The Chanel Pavillion has made it’s US debut in NYC’s Central Park last week. Designed by famed architect, Zaha Hadid, the Pavillion was designed to display art inspired by the iconic 2.55 quilted chain-strap bag that countless women around the world have adored. It’s on view only until November 9th, then it heads moves on so expect long lines and many Karl-devotees standing around and trying their best to look fashionable. Tickets can be purchased in advance only by going here.

Two Live Crew did a set for CMJ last week. Judging from the pictures…I’m glad I missed that too. {BV}
