The first day of New York Fashion Week has wrapped, but we’re still reeling from the incredible kickoff party and yearly scene known as the W It Girl Lunch. Every year, W’s editor at large Lynn Hirshberg hand selects a very talented, VERY beautiful, bevy of women to attend the chic luncheon. This year, Botkier partnered with W Magazine to help celebrate our 15th year creating it bags for it girls.
What does it take to be an “it” girl? According to Hirshberg, style, confidence, and above all, passion. We can get down with all those things. As Botkier embarks on this 15th anniversary, we’d like to say we know a thing or two about it girls. Over the last few years, we’ve featured several up-and-coming girls in our seasonal campaigns who’s stars have continued to shine brightly in the fashion industry - hello, ever heard of Bella Hadid? Since Hadid, we’ve had the pleasure of working with Nadine Leopold, Sistine Stallone, Lottie Moss, and Delilah Hamlin - a friendly face who also appeared at yesterday’s luncheon.
Behind the scenes, we’ve also had some killer it-stylists such as Jamie Mizrahi and our current style aficionado, Molly Dickson. Dickson was on hand at lunch in a chic off-the-runway Chanel dress, aptly paired with Botkier’s latest fall Moto boots - a look that only a true it-girl could pull off so effortlessly. Among Molly’s impressive and growing list of talent, was client and friend Katherine Langford of 13 Reasons Why fame. Langford’s colorful Prada dress was paired with the Lennox crossbody.
Nina Agdal was a vision in head-to-toe shades of green, including our Anna heels in winter green, and yet another sleek Lennox crossbody. It-girl, it-bag...amirite?!
Elsewhere in the room, familiar faces such as Emily Ratajkowski, Leven Rambin, Hanna Bronfman, and Whitney Port enjoyed free flowing champagne and bellinis before sitting down to lunch, making for a pretty fab start to Thursday. Happy New York Fashion Week, INDEED.
