Here at SW, our dark hearts beat faster for all things Vivienne Westwood, and all things involving 80's alt rock icons The Smiths (our fandom is a light that never goes out!) So when we heard news that Union Square boutique Shotwell was throwing a party for the launch of Westwood's collaboration with Lee Jeans and had corralled the crew from Certain People to take care of music, we were happy, as if in the haze of a drunken hour.
Launch party gets going at 6PM. Stop by the 320 Grant Avenue store anytime before 9PM to view the collection, and sip complimentary drinks. Black clothing required, only if black is how you feel on the inside.
