Hester is a relatively new label described by its designer as "future vintage." Frock is a Nolita shop specializing in exactly the sort of carefully selected vintage that Hester hopes to be when it grows up. So it makes sense that the collection and the boutique would come together for an event this weekend in which Hester's tailored suit gets merchandised with Frock's classic separates. It also makes sense that Hester's designer and Frock's buyer are old friends—they were both voted "most stylish" of their graduating class at Sarah Lawrence. [Elle]
