While the rest of us sat in the park this weekend, cursing the BBC weather ‘forecasts’ and mainlining Pringles (we saw you), our favourite A-list hipsters jetted off to Tokyo for the launch of edgy US clothing company Opening Ceremony’s flagship megastore.
Just how cool is Opening Ceremony? Well, not only have co-founders Humberto Leon and Carol Lim (see pic above) got boutiques in NY and LA, and now
Present at the party: adorably kooky tomboy Kirsten Dunst – remember her? – rocking a dress that was totally Alice-In-Wonderland-attends-a-funeral, and model-designer Erin Wasson in genius leopard-print shorts, escorted by BFF Alexander Wang, who was skiving off before the NY shows – naughty.
Plus! The Olsen twins in lace animal ears (in case you hadn’t noticed, bunny ears have taken over from the Bat For Lashes headband as the look-at-me party accessory OTM). Always one step ahead of the curve/other twin, Mary-Kate was wearing mouse bear ears; rabbit ears are just sooo last week (oops, sorry Ashley).
Also present: Julian Casablancas, the beyond-hot ex-frontman for The Strokes, doing a showcase of songs from his soon-to-be-released album Phrazes For The Young which, judging by his wow new video (watch it here), looks set to be a '70s-style prog rock masterpiece. Pretentious is the new cool, people.
