Asphalt runway: Trovata brings the bohos

October 15, 2008 |  1:00 pm

Duo1Trovata is known for its preppy, coed looks, but the O.C. brand drew a decidedly boho crowd Tuesday night at a party celebrating its spring collection on the roof of Palihouse in West Hollywood.

Folksy singer Robert Francis (at right, holding the drink), performed live with his band, underscoring the '70s-era Joni Mitchell/Cat Stevens vibe. Women donned long, flowing wraps, floppy hats and -- in their artfully disheveled coifs -- hippie headbands, feathers and oversized silk flowers, while a few full-bearded Devendra Banhart clones wandered around, swilling keg beer in ripped jeans.

Trio1 Among the revelers were Samantha Traina, Magda Berliner, Billy Zane (bucking the boho trend in a crisp black suit) and a curious Matt Dillon -- who wandered up from the bar downstairs, clad in a black T-shirt befitting Superbowl Sunday. "I just came up to see what was going on," said the original "Outsider."
