Coach opened its first men's-only shop on Bleecker Street this month. To celebrate the latest addition to the leather goods empire, the brand hosted a chic and fun dinner at Tipsy Parson on Wednesday night.
Guests, including Mickey Boardman, Kristian Laliberte and Jim Shi, enjoyed a diverse meal that ranged from pork ribs with curry yogurt sauce to mac & cheese. The lucky attendees also received a gift card at the end of the night for a bag of their choice.
The latest Coach outpost is joining a neighborhood that is already largely dominated by the boys: Ralph Lauren, Black Fleece and Tommy Hilfiger are all in walking distance. The store focuses on small leather goods, bags, accessories, shoes and swimwear. Plus, there's a special perk for being a New Yorker: thirty percent of the merchandise is exclusive to the Bleecker store.
