This past Friday night, Lala Anthony invited family, friends, and members of the press to a shopping experience for her clothing line, 5th & Mercer.
In addition to shopping the collection, guests were treated to a runway show, drinks, and hors d’oeuvres.
The name 5th & Mercer signifies the intersection between 5th avenue luxury and Mercer street edginess. In fact, Lala explained during the presentation that she sometimes calls her brand ‘cledgy,’ underscoring the collection’s sartorial mix of classy and edgy elements. While her initial offering bubbled over with athletic inspired basics like striped pants, zip skirts, and simple tees, her next generation of garments includes jazzy printed blazers, silken jumpsuits, bubblegum pink leather jackets, and fringed dresses, as Lala herself modeled during event.
I was in attendance, and took a bit of video so you can get a feel:
There are definitely elements that can fit seamlessly into anyone’s wardrobe, along with statement pieces. I was a fan of the pink leather jacket, as was Instagram darling @IamJuju_.
Of course, as with anything Lala related, the star power was on 10. Take a look:
Shannon Brown wasn’t too far behind, and posted up in plaid
Po Johnson and Power 105.1’s Charlamagne the God came out to support
And the family posed for a snap, with Lala in 5th & Mercer, and Carmelo Anthony in a leather jacket and a Givenchy Racecar tee
