Smells Like Team Spirit: OC FĂȘtes the Debut Issue of 'OC Annual'

Last night, OC got sporty to celebrate the launch of the first-ever Opening Ceremony Annual magazine. Things kicked off at OC's 10 Greene Street pop-up shop, where the shelves were piled high with Annuals and mini bottles of Chandon champagne. The entertainment for the evening? Interactive games courtesy of the Annual iPad app, and Nata the ribbon dancer, who put an outift of adidas Originals x OC to good use with some eye-popping acrobatics.

Later, the party continued at the Silkstone loft. Surrounded by basketballs, trophies, and (chocolate) gold medals, magazine contributors toasted the premiere issue at an intimate dinner hosted by our friends Phil and Ben of The Fat Radish. After plenty of bubbles and bouncing—on the exercise balls that decorated the space—we sat down to a family-style meal, punctuated by discussions about our favorite features and a surprise hula-hoop competition between Humberto and Solange. For dessert: cupcakes and a giant basketball-shaped piñata, created specially by ConfettiSystem. On the way home, guests picked up bandana-print party bags packed with adidas originals x OC goodies—and their very own Annual, of course!
