The Eli Halili Boutique Grand Opening with Vogue Gioiello in Soho Tuesday night could’ve easily been the most exotic and inspiring jewelry opening that has ever happened. The space was so infused with the designer’s unique and brilliant personality, as well as artifacts from his personal travels. The jewelry was displayed in a matchless way, draped across floral displays and hanging on mannequins surrounded by what were practically artistic installations. The event was a who’s who of Manhattan’s elite with some of the most fashionable New Yorkers fawning over the stunning pieces. Sarah Shahi of Person of Interest and Orange is the New Black’s Taryn Manning (who also DJed for the event) were all in attendance. Actresses Marisa Ramirez, Jessica Parker Kennedy, and Hannah New plus fashion hotshots Michael Carl, Beth Kseniak, Vanity Fair's Francesca Giorgetti and Vogue Gioiello's Alessandro Cremona, were highlights of the guest list. Guests sipped on raspberry and pineapple cocktails, enjoyed exotic hors d’oeuvres and admired Eli’s new Sof Omar collection.

Last week Yumi Kim held their press preview for the upcoming year’s collections. So much silken swag will be coming out in the next few months, and we can’t wait to share it with you! The Yumi Kim preview was by far the most adorable preview Joonbug has ever attended. Colorful candies, bubbling champagne, fruit kabobs, cupcakes, and the brand’s signature yorkie Yumi gave the space an atmosphere of girlish wonder. Fashion bloggers and press alike “oohed” and “ahed” the gorgeous pieces. Kim Phan, half of the line’s name-sake and the designer, was the most gracious and down-to-earth host. Wardrobe racks dripping in vibrant silks lined the walls. Each rack showcased a different month’s collection. Now is the time to check out the Yumi Kim website, as they just released a ton of stunning fall looks!
