ALL FOR ADLER: Jonathan Adler followers converged on the Seven For All Mankind flagship in New York’s SoHo on Wednesday evening to mark the summer launch of Adler’s cobranded range of jeans and sportswear with the denim maker. “I love the colors Jonathan uses and wanted to see the collection,” said Dylan Lauren, whose Dylan’s Candy Bar just signed a new license for a collection of stationery and partyware with Lifeguard Press — the company that makes similar products for Adler. Simon Doonan of Barneys New York, Adler’s husband and biggest fan, was sporting white corduroys from the new line. “I’m glad they have a bit of stretch because I have very muscular legs,” he mused. Had he given Adler any design tips for the denim line? “No, I’m hopeless at things like that because I come up with very uncommercial ideas, like putting lamp-shade fringe on the bottom.”

Also on hand were Abigail Breslin, Jamie-Lynn Sigler, “Real Housewife” Kelly Bensimon, model Sessilee Lopez, and Penn Badgley and Matthew Settle of “Gossip Girl.”

Asked if he had pulled any strings with Doonan to try to get the line into Barneys — the store is not carrying it — Adler demurred. “We’re too busy playing Ping-Pong and watching reality shows to talk business with each other,” he noted. “I like the really grim reality shows, like ‘Intervention’ and ‘Hoarders.’”
