If the photo hits 300 or more likes, 1st Class Fashion awards the member with a 1st class round trip ticket to, drumroll…anywhere in the world.

Ummm, how do we sign up?

Well, our editors were so intrigued that we went a bit further than merely entering our email address in a digital sign-up box. In conjunction with 1st Class Fashion, LA CANVAS headed to a private jet hangar for Luxe Lane, a luxurious “shop n’ sip” experience celebrating the launch of the brand’s innovative campaign on Thursday, September 4th. It was a hit to say the least.

Attendees enjoyed artisanal cocktails and snacks from Pretzel Crisps. Contemporary brands like David Giampiccolo, Rehab, Style Stalker, Line & Dot, Teeki, Bow Appetit, and AfrikaFifty6 were available for purchase, with a beauty bar provided by Silhouette Inc. NoMBe and DJ Ariel will hit the decks to score an evening of wanderlust and extravagance—an evening guests won’t soon forget. Catch a glimpse in some of the recap images in our gallery.

Recap: Clae Fall Collection + Steven Alan Collaboration Party

As these last few nights of summer wind down we found ourselves basking in a smorgasbord of hors d’oeuvres from My Two Cents LA, cold beverages from New Castle & New Amsterdam vodka and live music by Suitman, Mathieu Schreyer, DJ Jules, and DJ Hiro NYC at Our Favorite Shop for the intimate premier of the Clae Footwear x Steven Alan collaboration kick off party. Tastemakers all over Los Angeles vibed and shopped around for some limited-edition releases of Clae’s next level shoe game. This leading footwear brand took a popularly casual mid-top shoe, the ‘Strayhorn Vibrams’ and treated it to a spa day makeover with a newly pioneered edge of grizzly chic durability. In case you missed the rare collab event, don’t sweat it, there are still some shoes available in deep navy and gravel gray. With only 300 made in each color technique, they are guaranteed to run out quickly, so be sure to get your hands on these rugged stompers ASAP, here.
