Jeans destined to be collectibles
Designer Zac Posen's collaboration with the popular denim label 7 for All Mankind has resulted in three exclusive women's denim styles created for Neiman Marcus. The limited-edition jeans will be available for two days only at NM's annual "Downtown: The HIP Event," tomorrow and Saturday, showcasing the hottest urban trends and designers of the season.
The jeans, priced from $450 to $995, feature a mix of embroidery, Posen's "Z" logo, 7 for All Mankind rivets and, in a $700 version, a semiprecious bead and stone "Heiress Tassel" locked to the jeans belt loop with a key provided at purchase.
Quantities are limited, so customers can purchase only one of each style.
Those who make a minimum purchase of $350 in Women's (Level One) or Men's Contemporary Sportswear (Level Three) will receive a gift of a limited-edition Joystick top for women or a designer gift for men.
Try Kérastase at First Friday
J Salon will demonstrate the results of the exclusive Kérastase luxury hair-care treatment line at tomorrow's First Friday downtown Gallery Walk.
The free event runs from 7 to 9 p.m., featuring hosted cocktails by Grey Goose Vodka. Models will be chosen at random from among the guests for a free hair analysis, custom Kérastase treatment and style blow-dry.
J is one of the top salons selected by the company nationwide to feature the hair-care line that's been a hit with beauty editors and such stars as Madonna, Gwyneth Paltrow, Jennifer Lopez, Cameron Diaz, Sarah Jessica Parker and Jennifer Aniston.
The salon is at 1128 Nuuanu Ave. Call 550-4441.
Price may be right at Ward Warehouse
Victoria Ward merchants are clearing shelves and racks to make room for Christmas merchandise. That means it's sales time for budget-oriented fashion enthusiasts.
Help them clean house 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday and 9:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sunday in the Kewalo and Kakaako conference rooms on the second floor of Ward Warehouse, and merchants will have items marked down 50 percent or more.
Participants include MisFortune, Novel-T World, Allure, Craft Flair, Bobbi & Guy Beauty Supply, Paul Brown Salon & Day Spa and more, including goodies from Honolulu Chocolate Co.
Not everyone will be able to fit in the rooms, so Blue Ginger, Crazy Shirts Outlet, Mamo Howell, Silver & Socks by Noe, and Sonia Daniel House of Style will be offering sales of their own.
