AnA ignores directions, so the other day we felt embarrassingly late tottering through Nolita with impractical Miu Miu sandles and our edgy plastic eyeglasses in search of the only-the-cool-knew-about-it opening party of boutique Ananas. The adorable designer Jennifer Lagdameo features her own line of handbags -- kids, we saw a fanny pack! -- along with a mix of summer scarves and accessories. And for these times, when AnA cuts back by drinking only HOUSE liquor, Ananas is a fashionably frugal find.
WE BET ALEXIS BLEDEL WANTS ONE TOO
AnA approves the gold crackle Nealy for the strap and insanely editorial metallic edge. Also on view: the Coco Cork Clutch, which we spotted on one Lauren Graham. Lots of leather, too. Not for sale: the array of meats-on-stick and champagne that constitute a typical Akimbo meal. So once our bleached Balmain bottoms roll into the loft, and we get our Nealy, look for us swinging that gold number at offensive paparazzi and hangers on! No pictures!
