DEREK BLASBERG OPENING CEREMONY RAISE A CUPPA TO THEIR STATIONERY COLLAB

Having a tea party the Tuesday before Christmas is a risky move, even for a social magnet like Derek Blasberg. Although he was unsure that people could duck out of the office or dodge holiday packing, he had the party anyway. Blasberg has a new stationery line with Opening Ceremony to celebrate. “I love that Opening Ceremony can have this very uptown letter-writing tea party at the St. Regis, especially after that very downtown collection of those Yoko Ono jockstraps.” The collaboration—a sort of Mad Lib, fill-in-the-blanks letter-writing guide—had its genesis this summer over drinks with O.C.’s Humberto Leon and Carol Lim. “I came with the idea, and they came with the execution,” said Blasberg. “They really know what they’re doing.”

Giancarlo GiammettiNate BerkusCarlyne Cerf de Dudzeele, and Alexa Chung all turned out, and nearly everyone grabbed a piece of stationery, then signed, sealed, and handed off personal letters to be mailed. So why the interest in letter writing and etiquette? “I never really thought I would become fashion’s ‘Emile’ Post,” Blasberg told Style.com. “Back when my mom made me write thank-you notes before I opened any of my Christmas presents, I should have known it would come back to haunt-slash-inspire me as an adult.”
