Stock up on Aoyama Itchome designs at tonight's Evening of Cheer event at Callalilai -- cheaper (and prettier) than your cable bill!



    Inspiring Stories of Hope
    At Callalilai tonight, scoop up real savings on pretty party wear.

    The Callalilai boutique on Atlantic Ave. is New York's only showroom for the line's designs, from Japanese-via-Paris label Aoyama Itchome, whose soft, drapey clothes and flowery/botanical print have a sort of "Auntie Mame's kimono collection" vibe, and genuinely look different from anything else in high or low fashion these days.

    The stuff retails upwards of $200 for the most part, but at the boutique's Evening of Cheer event tonight, everything on the floor will be slashed to 40 percent off. Plus, you'll get a first look at some accessories by Barcelona-born Paz Sintes, who's swinging by to unveil her line of accessories made from recycled haute couture. 6PM-9PM, Callalilai, 296 Atlantic Ave. at Smith St.; (718) 875.1790.
