Forever Young: Double Birthday Fun at China Chalet

forever-young-alt5
On Friday, we celebrated the birthdays of Refinery29's Creative Director, Philippe von Borries and Ed Droste, frontman of Grizzly Bear and friend of the site. A tag-team 30th bash, the theme was "Forever Young" and drew friends and faces from the worlds of fashion and music. Naturally, Refinery29 faves like Vena Cava and the Opening Ceremony crew were in attendance as were indie music staples—including Yeasayer, Beirut, Beach House, Vampire Weekend, and R.E.M.'s Michael Stipe—to enjoy drinks and pop balloons under the pink lights of China Chalet. DFA's Tim Sweeney spun at the Chinese banquet hall's back room and Refinery29's Style Director, Piera Gelardi, choreographed guests as they posed for their official party photos with Groucho glasses and clown wigs in the front. There's nothing like turning the big three-oh to make you feel like a kid again.
