In The Shades

| August 21, 2012 | Parties

THE PARTY Sunglass Hut wasn’t about to let the opening of its largest store in the world go unnoticed. To celebrate the debut of the brand’s new boutique on Lincoln Road, the company’s powers-that-be transformed the 1111 garage into a block party complete with hot dogs, corn on the cob and a bake sale. THE CROWD The guest list was a who’s who of locals and out-of-towners. Model Chanel Iman cut the red ribbon with local politicos and Sunglass Hut executives. Gabrielle Union made the rounds as she told stories of her first-ever summer job at Sunglass Hut. And pop duo Karmin performed live for the guests. Shades were de rigueur, natch. THE SCENE “All this for a sunglass store!” marveled one attendee at the party. “That’s South Beach, all right.” We couldn’t agree more. Photography by World Red Eye
