Remember our friends Jenny & Tara (formerly of 3.1 Phillip Lim) who founded the Sporting Project — a Paris-based creative agency that we talked about here?
Well, they’ve collaborated with the cool kids behind The Fat Radish, one of our favorite restaurants in NYC to create a week long pop-up restaurant just steps down from our Rue des Gravilliers apartment in the beloved Bob’s Kitchen space.
The girls have transformed the juice bar and lunchtime cafe into a candle-lit sanctuary and Ben, Phil & Nick of The Fat Radish have been cooking up a storm. SP + FR is a match made in heaven and positively a highlight of Paris Fashion Week.
The pop-up has attracted the likes of Garance Dore, Caroline Issa, Colette, & Vogue (which booked out the space for a CFDA dinner on Friday night). Couldn’t be more proud of these gals!
The only thing that rivaled the stellar Fat Radish fare is the pop-up photo booth outside, manned by Kate & Pat Dougherty of The Family Band Traveling Photo Booth.
We’ve known these two since elementary school (Pat’s a killer photographer – check his work out here; and Kate’s an art director who we’ve talked about here), and love them to death. And they turned Rue de Gravilliers into quite the carnival soliciting guests, passersby and off-duty cops to pose for a picture:
And I think Kathryn and I have found this year’s Christmas card:
Couldn’t have had more fun at the Sporting Project & Family Band’s Paris Pop Ups. Love all these creative Delaware kids (+ you Tara!) doing cool things!
SP & FB, well done & thank you!
