It's not an evening presented by ALIVE without free-flowing drinks and snacks. As attendees nibbled, sipped, and chatted, Neil Bardon's still model presentation in support of his new Saint Rita Parlor menswear line drew attention. You might remember mention of Saint Rita Parlor from my post back in the spring. Bardon held a trunk show for his eyewear at one of my favorite spots in Saint Louis, Planter's House. After launching his eyewear collection and finding success with that endeavor, he moved onto focusing on creating his menswear line. It's very loose and laid-back, maybe even too much so for most Saint Louis fellahs, but I am a big fan of the collection nonetheless.
Let's take a look at my favorite pieces from the evening's runway show! All runway photos are included courtesy of Mark Schwigen for ALIVE. Final walk videos were filmed by me.
