Select guests gathered at the luxurious Neiman Marcus on Michigan Avenue to get an exclusive preview of the latest David Yurman collection Midnight Ice. Available exclusively at Neiman’s, fans of the collection can adorn themselves in signature David Yurman styles that feature a unique dark twist. As an ode to fall, white diamonds will be traded in for black and sparkling sterling silver will be darkened. Coordinating with the autumn leaves, one will be dripping in gray orchid jewels, cognac diamonds, and black onyx stones. The alluring and mysterious tones for Midnight Ice make the perfect recipe for a chic Autumn.
Our guide throughout this evening of glamour and wonder was none other than the man of the hour David Yurman. He along with Sarah Bray of Town and Country treated chic attendees to an exclusive fashion presentation featuring iconic pieces from the David Yurman collections. As models paraded about within the couture salon, David and Sarah shared tips on how one could style their pieces. With a glance of a bracelet covered wrist and a peek at a neck dripping in strands of silver, one trend was quite prominent throughout the presentation and that was layering. Since many fans of David Yurman can’t simply just have one piece, layering is easily made possible by one’s extensive collection of accoutrements.
One look after the other, attendees were further submerged into the world of David Yurman. Strands of sterling silver lay across a backdrop of elegant black dresses showing attendees a sophisticated and chic look. Whether one wants a look for day or night, collection after collection proves to be quite versatile. I say without hesitation that David Yurman never goes out of style.
After the presentation concluded, it was then time for the main event. All of the guests headed down to the first floor to shop till they dropped. A massive crowd began to form around the pristine jewelry counter and everyone whipped out their credit cards eager to expand their David Yurman collection. But what made this affair even more fabulous was that David Yurman mixed and mingled with the guests as they perused his collections.
The star of the show Midnight Ice lay in glass casings with peering eyes ogling the designs. As I passed by the display, it was often times empty as everyone wanted to try on something from the latest collection. It’s safe to say that this new collection is already a hit.
While guests adorned themselves in the finest of jewels, servers paraded about with white wine and glasses of champagne. To delight the palate, one could indulge in a series of delectable bites. The most saccharine moment of the evening came from the pastel color palette of macarons and custom David Yurman dark chocolates. No party is ever complete without a sweet treat.
Our host of the evening, David Yurman gladly posed for photographs and signed boxes of jewelry. Guests shared with him the stories behind their favorite David Yurman pieces. A husband and wife were there to meet the man behind their engagement ring. And a mother eagerly introduced her daughter to the man who designed the necklace that adorned her neck. David listened intently to all of his fans, showing a deep appreciation for the lovers of his work. While this was a chic affair, David remained the life of the party as he made playful jokes with the guests.
The evening concludes, and many guests leave the party departing with the signature silver Neiman Marcus bags in tow. Judging by the happy smiles and the many hands leaving with even more bright shining jewels; it’s safe to say that David Yurman will continue to adorn the glitterati.
