A Garden Dinner with CUUP

In the spirit of community, and in celebration of Jade & Emerald, we hosted an intimate dinner party with some of our closest friends – and biggest muses – at the idyllic Palma in Greenwich Village.
A Garden Dinner with CUUP

On Wednesday, September 15th, CUUP hosted an intimate dinner party with some of our closest friends – and biggest muses – in celebration of reconnection and our latest color capsule, Jade & Emerald. Nestled in the heart of Greenwich Village, Palma’s garden atrium was the ideal locale for one of our first in-person gatherings since February 2020.

The family-run restaurant was founded in 2001 by husband and wife duo Pierre and Palma. Since then, it has thrived as an extension of their home – Palma herself is at the heart of this operation, imparting a true sense of hospitality throughout the space’s uniquely welcoming ambiance and of course, its rustic Italian cuisine. 

Its idyllic setting is inspired by the Italian countryside as well as the old-world charm of its carriage house style architecture. We knew this would be the perfect place for our guests to unwind and connect after the return of New York Fashion Week and days of back-to-back shows. The guestlist ranged from journalists, editors, and creatives, to brand owners and models – each having worked with CUUP in different and meaningful ways. Surrounded by lush greenery, under string lights and candlelit accents, conversations (and cocktails) flowed and new friendships were made.

We worked closely with Palma to inject a touch of CUUP to the restaurant’s space. Palma herself helped us find the perfect botanical flourishes: like white dahlia centerpieces and artful, hand-arranged bouquets wrapped in a CUUP newspaper that each of our guests could take home. The place settings featured custom embroidered napkins that were an ode to the ethereal, goddess-inspired Jade & Emerald. 

Set up at the entryway of the carriage house was a display rack with our Jade & Emerald silhouettes, as well as the core CUUP colors that complement them so well; like Salt, Espresso, Taupe, and Clay. 

We asked our muses how they styled their new Jade & Emerald pieces and got to see how they brought their personal touch to their favorite CUUP silhouettes. Some styled their Jade & Emerald separates to be seen and others took a more foundational approach, reminding us of the power that lies in creating functional, supportive, and stylish wardrobe essentials.
