A Perfect Match

| July 17, 2015 | Parties National

Mary Katrantzou, and O.C.’s stylish set team up for Oceana.

It was an afternoon of firsts when and philanthropist Irene Martino hosted a chic luncheon benefiting Oceana. Case in point: Award-winning international fashion maven Mary Katrantzou made her inaugural trip to O.C. for the fete, where she got an inside look at all our city by the sea has to offer—panoramic views of the coast as seen from Karen and Bruce Cahill’s Laguna abode and the styles sported by our trendiest ladies. But they were treated to something new too: a poolside runway show featuring Katrantzou’s designs and other Matches apparel, and a chance to shop her A to Z tote line. And during the alfresco meal, the women chatted with Katrantzou and the British online retailer’s co founder, Ruth Chapman. A final turn: The boutique donated 10 percent of purchases over a three-month period to the nonprofit, which works to preserve our world’s waters. Now that’s a match point! -Photos by Evan Dorian
