A grand masquerade

To celebrate the completion of its main store, The Saks Shops at Greenwich took a page from Truman Capote’s 1966 black-and-white ball. Some 300 attendees of its “Masquerade Fete” on Oct. 26 donned black and/or white and colorful masks, as did  the ballet dancers and stiltwalkers who entertained.

Guests fondled designer wear while relishing sweet and savory bites, bubbly, specialty cocktails and a musical performance by pianist Chloe Flower amid a red rose-inspired décor from event designer Raul Àvila, who has overseen The Met Gala’s design since 2007.

The final portion of The Saks Shops at Greenwich, the renovation of Saks’ main store on Greenwich Avenue was completed earlier this month. The revamped main store is a  destination for beauty and women’s designer ready-to-wear, featuring an assortment of new and exclusive brands, including Balenciaga, Fendi, Givenchy, Loewe, EB Florals and Valmont.

The main store accompanies 10022-SHOE, the first stand-alone shoe store of its kind; The Collective, a contemporary space for emerging talents and established designers; and The Vault, a majestic home for jewelry.
