By Billy Fong. Photography Tamytha Cameron and Celeste Cass. S ummer left me a voicemail (who deigns to pick up the phone anymore?) proclaiming: "It's time for rosé and beach balls. Join Prada for a luncheon in celebration of its pop-up at Neiman Marcus NorthPark." A gorgeous long table was set with radiant flowers in shades of purple and white. It was almost all women in attendance, save for me — and you know I adore that ratio. I had a moment with Neiman Marcus Group president and chief merchandising officer Lana Todorovich, who shared how happy she was to be hosting events at the store again, while showing Prada CEO Marcelo Noschese how its done in Texas. Our local girl-in-the-know, Tina Chen Craig, welcomed the ladies, most of whom were dressed head to toe in their favorite pieces from Miuccia's coveted label. My lunch seatmate and long-lost friend Piper Wyatt and I promptly tossed the chic navy-blue embossed menu cards into the surprise Prada gift totes waiting on our seats — who knows when you might need invitation inspiration for a cocktail party. And in each tote was a navy- blue Prada beach towel. After a quick disco nap at home and costume change, I returned to the pop-up scene for the evening cocktail party. Bubbles were poured while a DJ transported us to Nikki Beach. A few of the girls who made it over from Fort Worth — Lindsay Sullivan Lawrence, Courtney Hess, and Becca Quisenberry — air-kissed friends they hadn't seen in months. Fellow Prada fans assembled at the luncheon included Kameron W e s t c o t t , S a m a n t h a Wortley, Jennifer Dix, Kim Quinn, and Maricela Heckelman. Seen clinking cocktail glasses at the beachside cocktail party were Sarah Calodney, Annika Cail, and Suzanne Droese.
