Vogue & Brahmin Host Dinner at the Hotel Giraffe


No matter what your size, shape, age or hair color – just about every girl loves a little arm candy.  But before dessert, there must be dinner… Which is why Vogue’s dinner party for Brahmin handbags made for a perfectly balanced meal!  On the enclosed rooftop of the Hotel Giraffe, about 30 stylists, editors and bloggers met for an evening of gabbing and bagging.  The hosts of the evening were Brahmin and Vogue’s ‘Style Council’: a team of tastemakers, including Hannah Bronfman, Kim Pesch, Ann Colville Somma and Lisa von Weise.

The storied handbag brand, Brahmin has been family run for decades, and the passion of it’s employees is contagious.  Details like handles inspired by guitar straps, and clasps from antique bags add to the brands rich heritage – while pops of cobalt blue and crossbody styles appeal to modern style-setters.  One of my personal faves, the Mini Kathleen in black – is a killer combination of rock n’ roll cool, crafted in lux, crocodile stamped leather, which rings in at a reasonable $225.  And as promised, after dinner must come dessert… Imagine our delight when the meal ended, and servers brought out an Ophelia bag from the Polished Party Collection for each and every one of us!
