Fashion’s Night Out: The Set List


Today, September 8th, the storm that is Fashion’s Night Out hits New York. With over a thousand stores participating this year and diehard shoppers swarming the streets, shit is bound to get a little crazy. Entering a good store on FNO can be your safest bet to get away from the sidewalk mayhem, we’ve taken it upon ourselves to find some small retail havens. Below are the spots we’ll be hitting up and the bands we’ll be listening to.

WHAT: Helmut Lang hosts Best Coast
WHEN: 6PM – 11PM
WHERE: Helmut Lang. 93 Mercer St., Manhattan
WHY: The straightforward, lovelorn rock of Best Coast is perfectly paired with the label’s sparse, elegant take on the basics. Another perfect pairing? Luke’s Lobster rolls and Death & Company cocktails, served throughout the evening in celebration of Helmut Lang’s new website.

WHAT: VPL Block Party
WHEN: 6PM – 11PM
WHERE: VPL. 5 Mercer St., Manhattan
WHY: We’ll probably see more FNO block parties in the future, but VPL and friends (Agnes B, 3×1 and Nike) are the first to come up with this brilliant idea. LCD Soundsytem’s James Murphy will be DJing promptly at 6. Get there early, because it’s going to get crowded.

WHAT: Henri Bendel’s Sparkle & Glamour
WHEN: 6PM – 11PM
WHERE: 712 5th Ave., Manhattan
WHY: Henri Bendel is offering up all the usual swanky services that are expected for Fashion’s Night Out: manis, pedis and endless champagne. What we’re curious about is the fact that the store will have an in-house tattoo artist slapping a special tat designed just for the event on whoever is willing. You’ll literally never forget FNO 2011, unless you’re willing to pay the price for laser removal.
