Spotted@ Michael Hainey's "Less Human More Being" at Thom Browne Tribeca

GQ deputy editor Michael Hainey opened his debut art presentation, "Less Human More Being", with a private party at the Thom Browne store in Tribeca, Friday evening. His paintings are bold and utilize broad strokes over tiny details; a journalistic approach to painting, if you will. The crowd was downtown fashion-fab: 40-something power gays in cashmere camel overcoats gossiping about Halloween plans, British gals in head-to-toe Chanel, roving style reporters (who selected one TTTer for a feature) and hip parents with their little ones in tow. It was a fashion-meets-press industry crowd, many of who are TTT friends that prefer to fly under the gaydar. The boldest names spotted were Oprah's go-to design guy, Nate Berkus with friends . . . Thom Browne and Michael Hainey posing for photos and working the room . . . Hainey's work will hang at Thome Brown Tribeca through November 11.
