HOTHOUSE FLOWERS: “We’re going to need these as the evening rolls on — and for tomorrow morning,” said Daniella Helayel, popping on a pair of gigantic silver eyeglasses with lenses in the shape of dollar signs during the after party at LouLou’s, following the Issa show Saturday night.

“I got them from a secret place, and I will not spill,” said Camilla Al Fayed, Issa’s owner, of the eyewear that awaited every guest and that ranged from giant daisies to exaggerated cat’s eyes in black or gold, to champagne flutes.

Guests including Derek Blasberg, who cohosted the evening, Megha Mittal, Eugenie Niarchos, Dasha Zhukova and Arki Busson made their way down the club’s staircase, past the soaring neck of a stuffed giraffe, and into the dining room’s dark, theatrical decor. Mingling with guests was Angelina Ypma, who recently joined Issa as chief executive officer after a career with brands including Bulgari and Chanel.
