Immediately following the Burberry spectacle, Gwyneth Paltrow and Liv Tyler, loyal besties that they are, decamped to Alasdhair Willis’ Established & Sons show in London’s tony St. James. (Mr. Willis is, of course, Mr. Stella McCartney.) A sort of furniture curator, Willis seeks out forward-thinking designers whose work he then exhibits under the auspices of his company. Trust us, this is no Pottery Barn. It’s actually not much more expensive, but miles more enlightened. A highlight of the night’s exhibition was Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec’s Quilt. Let’s put it this way: Remember that favorite quilted down coat that you pulled out when it was really, really cold—partly for protection, partly for comfort, and a little bit for fashion? This collection was the furniture equivalent. In essence: the best puffa sofa ever. What better way for Gwynnie, Liv, and the rest of the bunch to recover from a serious bout with a battalion of front-row flashes?
