TO HELP UP GEAR UP FOR PARTY SEASON, HERE ARE A FEW HOT TOPICS TO GET YOU GOING
Hey guys, hands up who is ready for Christmas? Hands up who can believe it’s December soon? This year I’ve definitely been a bit more organised. In fact I am really looking forward to December this year!
Festive Drinks at Folie
Folie is a new restaurant and bar has launched in Golden Square, where Soho meets Mayfair. It’s a meeting point for conviviality, elegance and revelry. This new opening, led by Executive Head Chef Christophe Marleix, champions seasonal ingredients from small scale uk farmers. Best of all, all day long, guests are invited to rediscover the fining culture of the Riviera, from Marseille to Portofino, through St Tropez and Nice. Designed by Studio KO, the interiors resurrect the sensuality and glamour of the 1960’s and 70’s.
PrettyLittleThing.com x Little Mix
It’s recently been announced that PrettyLittleThing.com is going to be collaborating with Little Mix. The eagerly anticipated collection will include clothing inspired from the 90s and noughties (my favourite). It will include luxe jacquards, bottle green and deep copper sequins, as well as snake prints and crystal embellished mesh. What more could one ever want? There will be oversized jumpers, thigh slouch boots, faux fur jackets and more in a wide range of sizes (4-26). The collection is available now online here.
The Ivy Asia, St Pauls
The Ivy Asia, a brand-new Asian concept restaurant and bar that will serve lunch, dinner and weekend brunch in St Paul’s, opens from Monday 18 November. The interiors are impressive, with a show-stopping fluorescent pink onyx floor, panelled artwork and a pink-hued pagoda greeting you on arrival. Furthermore, they are serving theatrical drinks and cocktails alongside a delicious menu of tantalising, Asian-inspired dishes, the vibrant and playful destination will entertain, inspire and excite you from the moment you step inside. Upstairs, the entire floor will be illuminated with green, semi-precious stone, set against a striking antique gold mirrored bar, luxurious Asian fabrics, brass top tables, and large windows overlooking one of London’s most iconic and beautiful sites, St Paul’s Cathedral. The late-night restaurant and bar will come alive with an exciting calendar of vibrant entertainment and music, revelry and DJs.
Chloe Tess & Chloe Aby Available Now
Python effect leather bags. What are your thoughts? As soon as I saw the Tess (left) and Aby (right) I knew I need to start saving. Retailing at over £1,300 though it looks like I might be saving for a long while! Chloé lends an autumnal refresh to the coveted Tess bag with a blue python-effect leather front panel. It’s crafted in Italy from smooth leather to a horse-shoe silhouette – equestrian codes are key to the label’s identity – and suspended from a detachable top handle and shoulder strap, then finished with polished gold-tone metal hardware. Carry it alongside relaxed tailoring for a typically feminine flourish. As for the Aby? Crafted to a miniature profile, it suspends from a sliding gold-tone metal chain strap that mirrors the front logo padlock. Style it to stand out against an all-black edit.
So which are your favourite? What are you most looking forward to this year?
