1 This was the invitation for the evening's festivities.
2 I was very happy when ERES, the luxury swimwear house, set up shop in East Hampton last year and I was especially happy when I was asked to hostess a promotional party in the store last weekend.
3 I have always been drawn to ERES swimwear and lingerie. The products are lovely, wonderful, and very flattering.
4 This iconic brand has been a force in the swimwear world for 40 years, when, in 1968, Irene Leroux decided that women needed and wanted swimsuits all year long.
5 According to the ERES Web site, 'Purity is one of the hallmarks of the brand. ERES swimsuits sculpted women's bodies and beautified them with ingenious cuts without using padding or boning as contemporary fashion then dictated.'
6 For this new concept, Irene Leroux created exclusive, comfortable fabrics to illustrate the art of the body.
7 Here I am with Lorna Dreher - ERES boutique owner and the gorgeous Alice Panikian - a Bulgarian-born Canadian model, who showed off some of the ERES fashions.
8 Alice Panikian modeling the Khol, a one-piece swimsuit with wide straps tied around the neck and deep V neckline. There is a draped effect and a pull-up gathering at the sides for more or less coverage.

10 This is the Babouche, a strapless bustier one piece suit that was featured on the invitation.
11 This is the Salome, a one-piece swimsuit with wide straps adorned with jewel-like metal fittings and a low-cut V neckline - color is Visir.
12 Guests were treated to the latest flavors of Ladurée macarons, which make any party a colorful, chic success!
13 Neil Rasmus from Billy Farrell Agency was there taking photographs of the event.
14 Jocelyn Daly - the ERES boutique manager and her mother, Lynn Dunhill
15 We loved the beautiful colors of the bathing suits and wraps. These pieces are from Les Essentials Collection.
16 This is ERES' first nail polish collection to match the swimwear in colors Bengale pink, Damas brown, and Soufi yellow.

21 Lorna was pleased to showed me some of the latest lingerie pieces.
22 The ERES lingerie collection was launched in 1998, using resilient, refined fabrics that are as light as air.
23 ERES lingerie has its own modern, pretty, and identifiable style.
