It suddenly got very festive at what felt like the real start of party season in London at the launch of the Claridge’s Christmas tree. Each year the legendary Mayfair hotel invites one designer to oversee the tree design and this year it was Burberry’s Christopher Bailey.
And the result is breath-taking! Bailey dreamed up a giant metallic tree comprised of more than 100 gold and silver umbrellas and a whopping 77,000 lights with sensors to respond to movement. Erin O’Connor, Millie Mackintosh and Matt Smith were among the crowd who gathered for the festive launch.
It was a busy night in London town so afterwards my friend blogger Jim Chapman and I hotfooted it across to the Louis Vuitton Windows book launch at the swanky Maison Assouline. The art book is dedicated to LV’s consistently opulent window displays, and as you might expect, it’s very lovely!
This week of course was also British Fashion Awards week so on Saturday night I made my way to the new Soho House on Dean Street in central London where Grey Goose and the BFC were hosting a pre-awards dinner for the nominated designers. Naturally the Grey Goose ‘Le Fizz’ was flowing, and I’d a lovely evening and great craic catching up with David Gandy, the gorgeous Daisy Lowe and the BFC’s Caroline Rush. The party continued into the early hours but for once I was sensible enough to call it a night!
Get social with me!
