Happy Holidays! I take on more than I can handle. That results in a lot of unposted content. In the name of catching up, while also taking it easy during this final week of the year, here's some of that lost material.
It's not a party in SoHo unless the fire marshals turn up. And New York's Bravest were out in force Wednesday for the mob scene at Paper magazine's bash inside the Hilfiger Denim Store on Broadway.
Motley rockers mixed with hipsters for the launch of a denim collection designed and inspired by former Ramones drummer Marky Ramone, who performed with his new band Blitzkrieg. Marky was the very model of downtown dishevelment as he mingled with guests including Tommy, Andy and Ally Hilfiger, Sean Stewart, Russell Simmons and Mick Rock. [stylelist]
