    Porsche Design Store Party

    Anyone in the NYC metro area go to the Porsche Design Store party that was held last night? I was walking on Madison Avenue on my way to an event off 65th street, when I came across a line of people outside the Porsche Design store at 642 Madison Avenue. Parked in front were four black 997's, each with different wheel sets. Incidentally, it looked like everyone was wearing black. Appeared to be invitation only.

    Re: Porsche Design Store Party

    Didn't know there was a party...wouldn't be too worried though, Porsche Design likes to think of themselves as totally independent from Porsche (though Porsche AG owns a large stake in them now)....the products they sell there don't really have anything to do with the cars at all (for that you'd have to go see the Driver's Selection collection at dealerships) -- but just luxury products with the Porsche brand name.

    However, the bags and luggage they sell there incidentally fit into any Porsche trunk!

    Only real interesting things at the store IMO - are the watches (but for that much money why not just buy an A. Lange Sohne?), the shoes designed in conjunction with Ferragamo...the aforementioned luggages (though Tumi makes better), and the sunglasses. I think Porsche Design sunglasses are phenomenal.

    So Sato, did the people look pretentious?

    Chances are they just put the cars out there to attract attention to the store.

    Where you going on 65th? A dinner at Daniel?

    By the looks of it I would say pretentious. But who am I to judge? I was attending a Johnnie Walker Blue Label tasting hosted at the Giorgio Armani store by the Robb Report.

    Moogle, what are you doing in HK right now, if I may ask?

    Re: Porsche Design Store Party

    Ferdie,

    I'm doing real estate and import/export. wish i had more time to drive and enjoy the beautiful weather!

    Re: Porsche Design Store Party

    Oh, I thought you are a playboy.

    I was just wondering why you moved away from NY - although HK is definately a great alternative!
