Champagne and Chanel!

June 18, 2008

If you can imagine heaven on earth, it looked quite a bit like a very special event organized by Portero tonight in New York City. Let me set the scene: Held at Antony Todd Home, one of Manhattan’s premiere destinations for chic furniture and accessories, the event featured a curated collection of over 100 vintage Chanel bags. From classic flap bags to needlepoint totes to rare weekend carryalls, the bags were the center of attention as guests placed online bids for the style of their dreams.
The displays, curated by Todd himself, featured many limited edition and extremely hard-to-find pieces. In addition to Portero, a select group of nine women played host to the cocktail party. This esteemed list included Annie Churchill, Melanie Charlton-Fascitelli, Emilia Fanjul-Pfeifler, Lauren Goodman, Nicole Hanley, Sabine Heller, Erin Lazard, Monica Mitro and Allison Sarofim. 
Although many bags were sold quickly, the large selection means that Portero members will have the same VIP access, all starting tomorrow when our Chanel spectacular shifts from a private party to a public event. Don’t hesitate if you see the bag of your dreams–a group this special won’t last long. Stay tuned to the blog for party pictures straight from the event!
