Belstaff is here! Last night(Nov. 1) Neiman Marcus on Michigan Avenue along with Harper’s Bazaar magazine hosted a fashion presentation for Belstaff’s Autumn/Winter 2012 Collection at Lux Bar. Held in the upstairs room of Lux Bar, guests were greeted as they walked up with 2 models dressed in Belstaff gear. The attentive Lux Bar staff quickly took coats and handed you a glass of wine(or beer) as you entered along with passed crabcakes, succulent lamb chops and burgers. The models took turns between walking around dressed in head to toe Belstaff to standing on the pedestal for guests to admire. Some of the pieces that were modeled were: The Barton Boots, Kirby Sweater, Arundel Gilet vest, Rutland cropped parka, Hayle Raincoat, and some awesome leather jackets. On hand for the event were Neiman Marcus’ team which included GM Wendy Krimins, Sue WyDerka, Tina Koegel, Mark Allen, Anthony Ritter, Rosellen Welch who mingled with guests such as Tripp Welge,Maria Citino Sffredo, Lauren Mack,Eileen Macnabola, Merrie Orahilly, Richard Biasi,Gretchen Vermuelen, Bradley Dineen as well as Jeff Lasota-President of U.S Sales and Danielle Franken-V.P of Wholesale Belstaff were on hand that evening.
