THECAST of characters

Chicly Red sums up...

Last night's menswear presentation by THECAST at St. Mark's church in the East Village was a veritable who's who and what's what in Cali-cum-NYC cool. In attendance, aside from every bold-faced and skinny-legged scenester, were Daniel Jackson of Surface to Air, Chris Bollen of V, Sam Shipley and Jeff Halmos (formerly of Trovata), as well as Ryan Turner's (half of THECAST) mom, who seemed to be channeling Gena Rowlands—in the best way. Fueled by Red Bull and libations, the raucous crowd let out whoops and hollers when the models appeared on the runway floor in tuxes and wicked cool leather pants and jackets. Organized by the always lovely Audrey Gingras of Archetype showroom, festivities immediately commenced post-show with performances by The Parlor Mob, followed by The Preacher and The Knife, as well as DJs Ivan Sunshine of the band Vietnam (early models for THECAST) and John Paul Jones. The night then quickly turned into worship of a decidedly different, debauched sort.
