Musings with Miu Miu

-------

Leave it to Miuccia Prada to bring a bonafide “salon” back to London. For three nights only, Mrs. Prada has opened a private members’ club at London’s Café Royal, a nineteenth-century institution where speakers, artists, filmmakers, chefs, and general influencers unite to share ideas. Considering Winston Churchill, Oscar Wilde, and George Bernard Shaw were early patrons, Café Royal was an enlightened choice for Mrs. Prada, who’s an intellectual heavyweight in her own right.

Film, food, art, and, of course, shopping are all on offer at the gilded baroque venue, which, last night, featured talks by Shala Monroque and Gentlewoman’s Penny Martin. The likes of Daphne Guinness, Katie Grand, and Lulu Kennedy sat on velvet couches while discussing the topic of the evening, “female role models,” which, after inspiring a few eye rolls from the gents in the crowd, left everyone riveted in their seats.

Kate Moss, Jamie Hince, Giles Deacon, and more popped by to take it all in, with many lingering in the rooms filled with Miu Miu’s yet-to-be-released 2013 Resort collection. Plus, guests were treated to a special surprise: a collaboration with two of London’s most beloved designers: Vivienne Westwood and Stephen Jones, the latter who, for the first time in his career, ventured away from hats to design a garment. His first sartorial venture? A denim apron.


“Mrs. Prada asked me to collaborate with her, and of course, I was honored to do so,” Jones tells Style.com. “I love aprons, I wear them all the time in the studio when I’m working because I am very hands-on and just make a mess. Aprons really are a symbol of hardwork put in by people throughout history.”

So, is a Stephen Jones clothing line in the works? “Hmm. I think it’s a wait and see—I’ll have to give it some thought, but it must be said that it was fun and challenging to do a piece of clothing for a change.”

Fashion Week, Turned Up To 11

-------

Every New York fashion week is filled with its fair share of memorable performances, both at shows and at the host of after-parties. This week should be no exception. On Thursday night, the Citizens Band, spearheaded by Karen Elson and Sarah Sophie Flicker, is set to turn Milk Studios into a sexy boudoir for their burlesque-style performance in Erickson Beamon’s “Deca-Dance” presentation. (They will, of course, be wearing Erickson Beamon pieces.) Following the cabaret show, Lissy Trullie, Cleo Le-Tan (sister of designer Olympia Le-Tan), Venus XX, and rap group Wu-Tang Clan are each doing a set at Milk for the MADE and Lexus Launch Event. If that’s not enough to make your night, the Kills’ Alison Mosshart and Jamie Hince (a.k.a. Mr. Moss) will be rocking out at the Standard’s Boom Boom Room—we’re told it’s their last performance for a long time before they go back to the studio to work on their next album. On Friday night, the Ting Tings and Santigold (who fronted Alexander Wang’s T ad campaign for Fall ’11) will be on hand to put on a show (Ting Tings) and DJ (Santigold) at The Box for a Glamour party. The following day, Style.com has learned that actress and singer Alia Shawkat, familiar to many from her starring role in the much-missed sitcom Arrested Development, will be singing during Rachel Antonoff’s presentation at Drive In Studios.
