Never have I experienced the collections from Azeeza, a showroom nestled in the quiet 900 North Michigan Shops off Michigan Avenue and Walton in the Gold Coast. I welcomed the media invitation to preview holiday collections, not surprised to see so much black, from my perspective themed with “all black everything.”
I noticed the embellished harness from a recent cover issue of Paper Magazine, and have to say it it’s not very well portrayed by the magazine. Paper styled their cover shot with this gorgeous harness on an inappropriate body type, tucked behind a blazer. Over this, before even into it, the harness belongs by itself on the correct body type. Sorry, not sorry Paper Magazine.
During this media preview, guests enjoyed Prosecco with a chance to browse the collection, with special holiday themed items and gift sets, and items curated by host Jena Gambaccini. Some items that caught my eye, the black knit hats. I’m loving the black hats especially this season, “black hats and black cats.” Scarves made of fur, and the embellished black clutches to match the evening dresses, many also black.
CS Modern Luxury hosted a second showroom gathering to promote it’s December issue and The Next List, with catering by Blue Plate, and I’m sure with a better media turnout than the first preview. Following the media preview Holiday Gift Shop, some guests ventured over to the Debi Lily Loft space in Roscoe Village, for an intimate gathering with a holiday theme, bubbles and Christmas sweets of course.
Thank you so much to the Azeeza Showroom and Boldface Chicago for hosting, for detailed coverage on Oak Lovely Beauty.
