Cop Copine opens its first US store in San Francisco in 2009, yet after 3 years it is still yearning for brand exposure and awareness in the city. I have been a fan of Cop Copine since I first stumbled upon the brand when I was in Paris 5 years ago. And having the brand available here in San Francisco is great news and I hope many more women will discover the brand in the city. So when Charleston Pierce invited me to “Charleston Pierce Presents Cop Copine Paris SF” event on December 12, 2012, I just had to come :)
The lively and vibrant atmosphere inside British Bankers Club, Menlo Park defied the soggy, drab rain that poured outside. Stepping into the historical bar/dining hall (depending on who you ask), we (my photographer Christian Hadidjaja and I) were immediately greeted with busy restaurant atmosphere coupled with live piano & clarinet music that reminded me of French Quarter at New Orleans. Marvelous ambiance. On that Saturday night, a charity fashion show showcasing Vasily Vein’s New Fall 2011 Women’s Collection and benefiting Kids on The Move America was held.
