SOHO—This fall, lingerie shop Kiki de Montparnasse launches in-store salons inspired partly by the intellectual gatherings of past centuries and partly by, you know, doing it. An expert known only as Domina K will lead four different events: Partner Play on September 1st, Celebrating the Sensual Self on September 15th, Art of Seduction on October 20th, and Bedroom Games on November 3rd. All four nights run from 7pm to 9pm and cost $65 a person. RSVP here. [Racked Inbox]
LOWER EAST SIDE—The Cut has published the first pictures Dolce Vita's new men's shoe line, J.D. Fisk, which is set to launch in October. As we learned earlier today, J.D. Fisk will appear in the former home of DV—Dolce Vita's cheaper, diffusion line— at 159 Ludlow Street. Dolce Vita's first men's collection will include the Austin Boot, a black suede zippered flat boot at $289; a brown lace-up boot called the Caleb at $289; a leather lace-up boot complete with buckles and straps, the Cooper boot, at $275; and even a bright blue Jackson loafer that costs $198. We love the variety of deep colors for fall! —Joann Pan [The Cut]
