Male Call

| June 3, 2014 | Parties National

The Party
Chicago’s most stylish men and women converged upon Barneys New York to join CS in celebrating the Men’s Issue and its Men of Style feature with a cocktail party in the fifth-floor men’s department.

The Scene
DJ (and MoS alum) Matt Roan set the mood with a razor-sharp mix that energized a crowd including previous best-dressed list toppers Darnell Robinson, Leonard Goldberg and Josh Pace, who all compared notes with current honorees. So— has life changed much for Alex Maier, whose dashing good looks graced the opening spread of this year’s feature? “Women are chasing him down the street!” jokes Maier’s girlfriend, Nina Johnson. “Thankfully none of them are fast enough!”

The Highlights
Upon arrival, partiers received a Barneys gift card valued at anywhere from $50 to $1,000, which led to more than a few impromptu shopping sprees in nearly every department. (A few guests ventured as far as the lower level to browse the latest in men’s skincare.) Of course, inhibitions may also have been loosened by a tempting assortment of beer, Champagne and manhattans. Cocktails and top-tier designer goods? Now that’s our kind of retail therapy! -Photos by Jonjie Baniel
