3x1 Celebrates Its Ben Watts Skateboard Collab

Alex Chapman

Denim emporium 3x1's normally calm and collected Mercer space was transformed
into a killer club-like party last night in celebration of the brand's new limited
edition skateboards, a collaboration with famed photographer Ben Watts that finds
Jessica Hart, Lake Bell, Chanel Iman and more on the dashing decks. We wondered
if Watts was a boarder himself? "Well, the skateboards were 3x1's idea -- you can't
skateboard with these babies," he told us with a smile, referring to his amazing blue
suede slippers. Touché, Ben.

We said our goodbyes to the evening's guest of honor then danced our way
around the rest of the party thanks to PAPERMAG favorite DJ Chelsea Leyland, who
turned the space out with some bass-bumping tunes while Brandee Brown, Jenne
and others danced along. Meanwhile, the real-life Winklevosses (that would be Tyler and Cameron) hung in the back corner with some lady friends while the beautiful Jessica Hart continually posed for pics, not to be outmatched by the also-beautiful Elsa Hosk, who chatted it
up with an entourage-heavy Jude Law. Future couple perhaps? Probably not but
we can dream.
