Voilà, Votre New Summer Mix


A good reason to fire up the stereo: a new mix CD from Kitsuné, the French fashion-slash-record label, and Ponystep, the East London online mag-slash-phenomenon. That’s a lot of slashes to ask anyone to take sitting down, but Kitsuné—whose subtle, collegiate clothes, lately a sensation in Japan, will hit Opening Ceremony stores for their “France” campaign this year—and Ponystep both know a good party. (Ponystep, edited by the English club king Richard Mortimer, throws some of the best around.) And for the new summer mix, Kitsuné and Ponystep called in a third, equally big gun to do the mixing: Jerry Bouthier, who regularly spins runway tunes for Vivienne Westwood, Jonathan Saunders, Roksanda Ilincic, and Romain Kremer. The result: Roísín Murphy (late of the Viktor & Rolf Spring ’10 show), Florrie (soon-to-be face of Nina Ricci’s L’Elixir), Norway’s Lindstrøm, Ireland’s Two Door Cinema Club, and more, here and ready to set the ground shaking. B.Y.O. dance floor/catwalk. Crank it to onze!

Reindeer Games


“It’s almost becoming a tradition,” said Pablo Flack, at the opening of his seasonal pop-up restaurant. “Maybe we’re Mr. and Mrs. Christmas. And I’m Mr.” That would mean “Mrs.” is David Waddington, Flack’s business partner in Bistrotheque, the East End eatery that has never lost its heat. Waddington sighed at the thought of an annual obligation to come up with venues as creative as last night’s Patron Silver Reindeer (named for its tequila sponsor). Maybe that’s why this year’s edition is a three-night-only affair. Or maybe it’s just about keeping things as special as possible, in the Bistrotheque (as opposed to Christmas) tradition. The hundred guests dined inside a huge square box, assembled inside a North London studio by set designer Gary Card from giant laser-cut cardboard snowflakes. Need truly mothered invention. “They wanted it Christmas-y with the 27-pence budget they gave me,” joked the baby-faced Card (also 27). Patron’s sponsorship was actually more than enough to allow him to create a special effect that left diners breathless. “Just like being inside a giant Christmas decoration,” Stephen Jones raved. “It’s a wonderful, simple idea—and they’re always the best.” The freely-flowing (and food-infusing) Patron Silver helped fuel those left feeling fragile after the previous evening’s Fashion Award frivolities, among them Richard Mortimer, Henry Holland, James Long, and a still-reeling-from-her-win Katie Hillier. Also sipping were art-world nabobs Matthew Slotover, Maureen Paley, Tim Noble, and Sue Webster and a clutch of It couples: Serena Rees and Paul Simonon, Lulu Kennedy and Marc Hare, and Japanese hip-hop superstar Rebel with the beauteous Yoon.
