It was a family affair at the launch of Hung On U, a handbag line designed by former model Patti Hansen at Barneys NY on September 22 in NYC.
The event highlighted one-of-a-kind crossbody bags designed by celebrity friends including rock stars (Gavin Rossdale, Ronnie Wood, Anthony Kiedis) actors (Rashida Jones, Debra Messing, Zach Galifianakis) and designers (Donna Karan, Christian Louboutin, Diane Von Furstenberg).
Of course, Hansen enlisted her family as well - daughters Alexandra and Theodora along with her husband, Rolling Stones rocker Keith Richards each designed unique and stylish bags.
Clad in a tight, leather minidress, the model opened up about her daughters, revealing that the girls used to fight over clothes, but now she says, the two have separate closets and have no need to bicker. When asked if she thought her style was handed down to her daughters she replied, "don't most children grow up in the same look as their parents? I think between Keith and I they both have a very elegant, but grunge style."
And when asked the reverse - is her style influenced by her daughters? - she gave an affirmative "yes" and with good reason: "they are wearing the new designers and they're out there in the fashion. I get to see it on them and go 'oh, alright, that's cool.' it's switching, I'm borrowing their stuff now."
Like mother, like daughter... and vice versa!
