Tonight, head uptown to sip Nicolas Feuillatte champagne, hang with VIPs like Pamela Love, and of course, score yourself some iconic Parisian pieces. Known for the mariniére (the French classic striped "mariner's shirt") and the invention of the modern tee, Petit's basics contain that extrajoie de vivre! Browse soft organic cotton cardigans, shrugs and Audrey Hepburn-channeling turtlenecks, perfectly uniting Upper East sophistication with Parisian chic. But remember! The first 50 people to RSVP will get a personal styling session par excellence with Refinery29 editors Piera Gelardi and Christene Barberich.
Fun fact: When founder Pierre Valton heard a child ask if little boats, or petit bateaux, had legs beneath the water, he came up with an idea to create legless undergarments (underpants!). So while you party on New York's favorite avenue, be sure to find yourself some amazing bras and bottoms (there is a reason that lingerie is a French word, after all).
Don't forget to make sure to repondre, s'il vous plait (or RSVP, if your French is rusty!) to firstname.lastname@example.org
Thursday, November 18, 6:30 to 8:30 p.m., Petit Bateau; 1094 Madison Avenue (between East 82nd and 83rd streets).
