HAPPY FEET: Princess Beatrice of York, daughter of Prince Andrew and Fergie, hit The Standard Hotel in New York last week for a fete celebrating Original Penguin’s snowboard collaboration with K2. The royal partygoer got a first peek at the technically advanced snowboard, boots and binding package, which is adorned with Original Penguin’s preppy motifs, such as argyle and check patterns. The partnership with Seattle-based K2 is the first winter sports gear project for the Perry Ellis International-owned contemporary brand. The design will be available for one season at K2-authorized retail dealers and the company’s e-commerce site, and will also be displayed at Original Penguin’s six retail stores. The board alone retails for $549 and the board, boots and binding package is $950.
