Since the holiday break New York has been sleepy, but the downtown crowd decided to make up for lost time last night at The Mirror Cube launch party at Baby's All Right in Williamsburg. The new website created by Jess Manaforts gives artists and creatives a platform to personally recommend their favorite art, music, and film events to anyone who wants to engage in that community. Following weeks of hibernation, guests were thrust right back into the mix, with a completely packed house, open bar, and 2 band performances. The night kicked off with buzzed-about singer Soko DJing during her brief stay in NYC. She set the tone perfectly with uptempo rock jams that made way for the opening act The Walking Shapes. In the front of the room Timo Weiland met up with photographer Rush Zimmerman and blogger Danielle Bernstein following his Champion collaboration a few blocks north.
Last night, Veuve Clicquot returned to the Standard Highline for their annual Clicquot In The Snow winter celebration. This time, the entire Biergarten was transformed into the 'Clicquot Chalet,' complete with food, games, and bottles (as far as the eye could see!) of the brands signature Yellow Label champagne. While the ice skating rink wasn't in play this year, guests were more than happy to trade the cold winds for the indoor winter-wonderland, fitted with decorative mountaintop decals, white manzanita branches, and a custom Clicquot sled which itself yielded dozens of Instagrams. The fashion set had a strong presence at the event, with Rebecca Minkoff, Carly Cushnie & Michelle Ochs, and Timo Weiland all enjoying a night of bubbly.

There's so much stimulation in our digital world that we often forget the trends that either propelled us forward or besieged us in grade school. If you were a '90s kid, you'll recognize these favorite trends immediately -chances are you took part in them.

Let's revisit them, and maybe, as a collective group of cool '90s kids, we might be able to bring them back to life. Let's be honest, you wish they would.
