PYTs Kick Off LFW
London has been in an uncharacteristic slumber for the past few months, and all that pent up demand for action and partying exploded at the Lacoste VIP Trunk show at Claridge’s Saturday afternoon. An A-list of new generation stars—Daisy Lowe, Amber Le Bon (daughter of Duran Duran’s Simon), Pixie Geldof, Olga Kurylenko, and Rosamund Pike—clinked champagne glasses while bedraggled fashion journos from New York checked into the hotel for the kick-off to London Fashion Week. So what is everyone looking forward to this week? Model and budding designer Ben Grimes, Richard Nicoll’s muse, had an answer: “Definitely Julien Macdonald. There are so many exciting things going on in his company, and everybody is dying to see how it will all translate. With what is going on in the economy, he just represents hope.” Cheers.
