Yesterday at Barneys’ Freds restaurant, an impressive cadre of women gathered in honor of “Timeless Beauties,” a traveling exhibition celebrating the rich heritage of the Belgian leather goods brand Delvaux.
Many of the women—including Carmen Dell’Orefice, Pat Cleveland, Jade Berreau, Beth Rothenberg, Dianel L. Ackerman, Zani Gugelmann, Jeannette Gugelmann, Martine Malle, Melia Marden, and Mirabelle Marden—are the subjects of the show, having been photographed by Marc Lagrange (also a Belgian) throughout the year. “Timeless Beauties” debuts here in New York, but will continue on a worldwide tour (Brussels, Paris, London, Tokyo, Shanghai, and Hong Kong) in 2015.
Barneys’ own Daniella Vitale, Jennifer Sunwoo, Tomoko Ogura, Simon Doonan, Sarah Blair, and Rebecca Jobo along with Delvaux’s Christina Zeller and Natacha Polaert also were in attendance—not to mention quite a few breathtaking Delvaux bags.
