A Fashionable Crowd Celebrates with Reed Krakoff

“We installed in about 24 hours,” explained Reed Krakoff at last night’s opening of Alchemy: Art x Design, an exhibition he curated at Sotheby's with this wife, Delphine. “But it was more fun that way.” If the Krakoffs were improvising, it didn’t show in the flawless arrangements of furniture, works of art and objects. Tory Burch, Jeanne Greenberg Rohatyn, Giovanna Battaglia, Stefano Tonchi and other fans and friends admired the pairings – a de Kooning painting over a Shaker table for one. “People like surprises,” said Krakoff, who walked through the show with pal Julianne Moore. “It was a lot like making a fashion collection – you think it’s going to be one way, and in the end it’s another thing entirely.” — Meghan Dailey
