THE PARTY: Launch of Khirma Eliazov for Restorsea, hosted by Emmy Rossum, Tina Craig and Patti Pao of Restorsea
THE PLACE: Bergdorf Goodman Beauty Department
THE FARE: Passed bites including mini risotto balls, pumpkin pies and champagne
THE DEETS: Beauty and handbag aficionados gathered in the ultra-luxe Bergdorf beauty department to celebrate the launch of a Restorsea and Khirma Eliazov collaboration. The handbag designer called on Emmy Rossum to help her design and launch a fabulous creation that holds a collection of travel-sized Restorsea products. Eliazov stayed true to her unique aesthetic, which incorporates brightly colored animal skin and geometric shapes, in creating the Restorsea pouch. In attendance and toting a Khirma creation was Tina Craig of Bag Snob – a supporter of not only gorgeous handbags, but gorgeous skin, as well.
Perhaps there’s a link between the bag obsessed and the skin obsessed, as Craig admits that she’s both: “I have a 13-step routine, daily and nightly. No matter how much champagne I’ve drunk, I will do my 13-step routine. Cleansing, exfoliating with a special towel, toning, serum—first lightening—serum, oil, oil-free for this zone, eye serum, eye cream, face cream, neck cream, bust cream…it goes on and on,” she says. For her, beauty starts with the skin and ends with add-ons like handbags. Of course, Elizaov agreed that a great outfit isn’t complete without fabulous finishes: “I just love accessories. I just think they’re that last piece that you [add] that puts everything together.” With a vibrant pouch as versatile as this one (it even fits an iPad mini!) there are endless ways to make an outfit pop, while the goodies that come inside will help you look utterly flawless.
The Khirma Eliazov for Restorsea Travel Kit retails for $295 and features a lizard and leather Khirma Eliazov pouch with the following travel-sized products: Reviving Cleanser with Vibransea Complex, Revitalizing Eye Cream with Vibransea Complex, Rejuvenating Eye Cream with Vibransea Complex, Retexturizing Body Butter with Vibransea Complex. It is available exclusively at Bergdorf Goodman until supplies last.
