Americans in Paris: Mark Lee Hosts A Fourth of July Fete To Remember

Last night, the men’s and couture fashion shows had a large contingent of the Barneys team stranded in Paris—quelle horreur!—for the Fourth of July. It was a fashion emergency of the highest order.

Enter: Mark Lee. The CEO of Barneys New York saved the day with a Fourth of July fete at his apartment, where the team celebrated la vie en red, white & blue with cheeseburgers and beer. We hear it was a beautiful night, with the sun still out at 10pm. Luckily, our friends overseas snapped some pics. (And yes, we too are wondering how Mark managed to scrounge up a case of Budweiser in Paris.)
