Last night, while sports bars were full of Yankees fans cheering their team to victory, there was another spot equally packed with partiers clinking their glasses. Of course we are speaking of the Lalique Haviland boutique, which opened with a socialite-studded cocktail party while showing off their Lalique crystal, Haviland limoges china, the new Lalique by Haviland collaboration, and boutique-exclusive jewelry pieces.
Judging by the crowd last nightwe're talking about Naeem Khan, Eric Villency of Today Show fame, and the CEOs of Cartier and Hermes?we're pretty surprised that Lalique chose to place their new store on Madison and 58th Street, versus further up amongst the prime Upper East Side clientele they target. But then their crystal cabochon rings (seen in the gallery in a range of colors) are only around $230, so perhaps there are items for the casual shopper as well.
