What: A dinner to celebrate Brazilian shoe designer Alexandre Birman’s signature tie-strap sandal, the Clarita.

When: Thursday, June 4th

Where: The rooftop of the NoMad Hotel

Who: Blogger Garance Doré, bag designer Elena Ghisellini, photographer Carter Smith, model Alina Baikova and her boyfriend art dealer Helly Nahmad joined Birman and his wife Johanna for the intimate affair.

Why: What the Chaos is to Manolo Blahnik, the Clarita is Alexandre Birman—a hot-ticket style adored by both celebs and fashion insiders alike. And who could resist the opportunity to design one’s own, as guests were invited to do last night.
