What: A spring dinner celebrating the French fashion house Sonia Rykiel.

Where: A private room at the SoHo restaurant Saint Ambroeus in New York

When: Monday, June 8th

Who: The intimate event, which was hosted by Sonia's granddaughter Lola Rykiel and the fashion house’s artistic director, Julie de Libran, attracted a chic crowd, including director Sofia Coppola, model Lily Donaldson, jewelry designer Aurelie Bidermann and It girls Alexia Niedzielski, Anya Ziorova, and Laure Hériard Dubreuil.

Why: The brand presented its spring 2016 collection earlier that afternoon in a sun-drenched courtyard in SoHo, but many of the stylish guests were already wearing pieces. Because, why not?
