At The Lion with Lake Bell & Oxfam

Planet Botkier April 06, 2011


Monday evening we celebrated our exclusive collaboration with Lake Bell & Oxfam with some of the industry’s top editors and style mavens at New York’s newest hotspots, The Lion.

Nestled in the West Village on 9th St. between 5th and 6th Avenue The Lion’s vibe of vintage “faded glory” (we loved the antiques and all the art, including works by Basquiat, David La Chapelle, and Marilu Nordenflycht) only highlighted the chef’s great take on American comfort food… we literally couldn’t get enough of the fries!

Highlights from our evening included meeting Lake’s mom Robin Bell (love seeing them together):

Lake and her mom  – not only does Lake get her beauty from her, but also her great sense of humor and style!

Lyndsay Cruz from Oxfam with Lake and Monica – passionate women with great style – making a difference.

Lake’s brother and  some stunning friends… love that gold top!

Marie Jacobs from Glamour and David Thielebeule from Harper’s Bazaar – need to get a leather jacket, love theirs!

Justin Livingston from Shine Media PR with Hannah Deely and Hayley Starr from US Weekly

Lake and Monica sharing a moment – good times!

It was an incredible night… lots of memories to add to this wonderful collaboration with Lake Bell and the team at Oxfam.

Botkier Celebrates Street Style Spring Giveaway

Planet Botkier March 24, 2011

What better way to honor Bill Cunningham, the original street-style photographer and fellow New Yorker, than to offer one of our loyal fans the chance to get their “street-style” on?

Beginning Thursday March 24th, 2011 we’ll be offering one lucky Botkier fan the chance to win a Spring 2011 Botkier bag and to be featured in a street style shoot by Monica Botkier.

Also one lucky winner will win two tickets to see “Bill Cunningham New York” at the Film Forum here in New York City, to be announced Saturday, March 26th, 2011.

We love seeing Botkier street style and we’re constantly inspired by some of our favorite bloggers, as seen above (Aimee Song and Carolina Engeman).

Essentially, that’s how Botkier began – a girl, with her camera, and a bag.

Become a fan on Facebook, follow us on Twitter or visit our Nolita Boutique to enter – the winner will be chosen on Friday, April 1st, 2011.


About the film:

“We all get dressed for Bill,” says Vogue editrix Anna Wintour.

The “Bill” in question is 80+ New York Times photographer Bill Cunningham. For decades, this Schwinn-riding cultural anthropologist has been obsessively and inventively chronicling fashion trends and high society charity soirées for the Times Style section in his columns “On the Street” and “Evening Hours.” Documenting uptown fixtures (Wintour, Tom Wolfe, Brooke Astor, David Rockefeller—who all appear in the film out of their love for Bill), downtown eccentrics and everyone in between, Cunningham’s enormous body of work is more reliable than any catwalk as an expression of time, place and individual flair. In turn, Bill Cunningham New York is a delicate, funny and often poignant portrait of a dedicated artist whose only wealth is his own humanity and unassuming grace.
