'Twas quite the fashionable crowd at the Delvaux flagship store on Fifth Avenue this week. Jean-Marc Loubier, CEO & Chairman of Delvaux, along with the President of the Magritte Foundation, Charly Herscovici hosted everyone from Olivia Palermo and Jessica Joffe to Francesco Carrozzini and Vanessa Moody stepped out to fete the luxury brand's brilliant new artistic collaboration. Blending the playfully irreverent whimsy of artist René Magritte's work with the classic, timeless structure for which Delvaux handbags have found their fame, this new collection is a sophisticated burst of the unexpected your wardrobe didn't know it needed.

To further celebrate the partnership, a rare selection of five unedited artworks by René Magritte never before seen by the public will be on display at the Delvaux flagship until the 24th of May. Quite the treat!

Click through for scenes from the evening, as well as a look at the artful new collection (the nod to the bowler hat is beyond!).
