It’s a story a decade in the making, but one that dates back more than 50 years. Designer Lisa Perry has been applying her own modern spin to her signature ‘60s aesthetic since founding her namesake line ten years ago, and Barneys is joining her in celebrating her milestone anniversary. We got things kicked off earlier this week with a lookbook featuring a 10-piece capsule collection of Perry’s most-loved styles from her previous collections, then took you behind the scenes of the shoot for an inside look at how the project came together.

Last night, we kept the ball rolling with a private cocktail party and dinner at Richard and Lisa Perry’s home, where we took the opportunity to go Off Topic with guests from the art- and fashion-focused crowd. Scroll on for a closer look at the evening’s festivities.

But that’s not all—we’re keeping the celebration going with a cross-country series of personal appearances where you’ll have the chance to meet Lisa, shop her latest collection and the anniversary capsule, and join in the celebration. Please join us at one—or all!—of these upcoming events:

Barneys CEO/President Daniella Vitale with designer Lisa Perry.

The Window: Between your incredible collection and the collaborations you’re known for, you’re clearly an art fan. What exhibits are your must-sees this fall?
Lisa Perry:
I haven’t seen the fashion exhibit [Items] at MoMA yet but I definitely want to. I judge the Cooper Hewitt Design Awards, and this year’s fashion winner, Slow And Steady Wins The Race, has a piece in the exhibit. And any and everything at the Met Breuer—I already saw Ettore Sottsass and will be sure to see whatever’s next there!

With fall upon us, where’s your favorite getaway for leaf peeping?
LP: Definitely Sag Harbor—one of my favorite places.

Anum Bashir of Desert Mannequin

What are your must-see art exhibits this fall?
Anum Bashir: Well I’m looking forward to spring already, because February and March are the best time to celebrate art in the Middle East. We have Art Dubai then, and all the galleries will be turning over their new exhibitions. The gallerist Leila Heller always does something very cool out there, and I’m very excited to see what contemporary Arab artists will be doing in Dubai’s art district, Avenue. I’m also looking forward to seeing what’s up next from Etel Adnan, an 80-something-year-old Lebanese French artist who does these extremely abstract miniatures, who just had the first solo show of her life.

With Lisa Perry celebrating her 10-year anniversary tonight, what would your wish be for her for the next ten years?
AB: That she gets any and everything she wants! It’s such a feat to achieve this milestone, and I’m sure the next ten will only be bigger and better!

The fashionable ladies of team Barneys: Grace Fu, Jennifer Sunwoo, Leah Kim, and Marina Larroudé

With fall upon us, what’s your favorite quintessential fall activity?
Marina Larroudé: I’m a HUGE Halloween person, and love getting dressed up. Last year, I had four different costumes!

What are your must-see art exhibits this fall?
ML: I really wish I’d had a chance to see the David Hockney exhibit at the Pompidou while I was in Paris for Fashion Week, but the line was around the block and I didn’t have time between shows and appointments. I did get to see the Irving Penn exhibit at the Grand Palais and it was phenomenal.

The Window: What would your wish be for Lisa for the next ten years?
JiaJia Fei: All the colors! Infinitely more colors that haven’t even been discovered yet.

What are your must-see art exhibits this fall?
I just saw Items at MoMA, and it was amazing to think about fashion in that kind of social context.
