One of the best things about being a fashion and beauty blogger is getting invited to attend awesome events to learn about new brands and the products they make. Last night, I attended a cool event hosted by HONNS for an exclusive look at their debut collection. The event took place at Minus5 Ice Bar located at the New York Hilton Midtown on 6th Avenue and 53rd Street. I was not familiar with the brand prior to the event but upon doing some research I was excited about seeing the HONNS collection in person and experiencing what the gloves are capable of in freezing temperatures (such a genius idea to host an event like this at Minus5 Ice Bar in the middle of August).
The Founders of HONNS saw a need for gloves that mimic the curve of the hand at rest and a design that would allow self-expression. They used their expertise from making sports gloves for top brands and pro athletes to create a unique collection of gloves that people would want to wear - at work or play. HONNS' handcrafted gloves are made with the finest materials and lamb skin leather which give the gloves a soft feel and water resistant properties.
Each guest received a free pair of Mary Jane gloves which retail for $98.00
I was so grateful and happy to be going home with a pair of HONNS because I knew they would come in handy during the brutal winter months. Just by looking at the gloves I could tell they were unlike any pair of gloves I have ever owned. After putting them on and testing them out inside of Minus5 Ice Bar I must say HONNS gloves are truly worth every penny! They are not only sophisticated, durable and comfortable but they're also equipped with touchscreen capability so I can text, tweet and like pictures on Instagram without having to take my gloves off!
Thank you HONNS and Lindsey for the opportunity to learn more about HONNS and enjoy what would have been just another Tuesday evening!!!
These are some of the HONNS gloves from the debut collection.
Aren't they hot? They're also available for men which I think would make a great gift for the holidays!
If you're ever in the mood to cool off and enjoy a cocktail then Minus5 Ice Bar is the perfect place! Everything inside of Minus5 is made of ice, literally! Keep scrolling to see the ice walls, chairs, cups and creative ice sculptures that continuously change throughout the year to reinvent the experience.
I went with the Frosty Mojito!
The cups are completely made of ice and you must hold them with both hands when drinking.
No event is complete with out a SELFIE!!!!!!! (Peep the ice wall behind me)
Speak with your hands. Express yourself with HONNS.
I so need a chair like this for my vanity! Lol
I love this ice chandelier!
This mini ice room was my favorite part of the venue!
My toes were freezing but I just love my SHOP PRIMA DONNA shoes!
