Following up on his December fashion show, Matt Bruening presented the debut of his Spring 2012 line, PVNCH, during First Friday at Milk & Honey, 1128 Smith St., where there was informal modeling and shoppers were treated to a 20 percent discount between 6 and 9 p.m.
If you missed it, not to worry, the boutique will be carrying the line, in addition to it’s other brands, from House of Harlow to luxurious beauty products from Tokyo Milk.
I really love the House of Harlow headpieces they carry, but unfortunately I’m not young enough to be able to pull off the hippie-boho look like its creator, Nicole Richie, as in the photo below:
While there, I ran into Julie Aragaki, who fixated on the necklace I was wearing. It’s sort of an illusion necklace with three gold discs embedded with a varying number of diamonds, plus two small brilliant-cut diamonds on a gold chain. When it’s worn, the pendants appear to form a constellation of varying lengths.
When I told her it was from Jade by Nikolai, she said she had to take a photo of it and send it to designer Nikolai Tsang, who has a knack for remembering who bought what.
I bought it for myself for Christmas of 2010, but sure enough, Nikolai knew I was there with Julie.
