Party Beat at Gucci's Pop Up store

22 April 2010

So we went to the party for the Gucci Pop Up store in Covent Garden last night and it was awesome. Frida Giannini was there, against the odds (take THAT, flight freeze!) having flown in from Rome earlier that day. The Gucci Creative Director was looking foxy in a very-Frida disco-delux jersey all in one trousersuit, in a fabulously early Eighties shade of Coco-caramel, and some pale frosted lipstick, which we think might well be a Next Big Thing beauty trend.

Next up was party co-host Jefferson Hack, in a bold monochrome dogtooth check jacket and the kind of buzz cut usually forced on US army types after they enlist. Dangling from his arm was the ever gorgeous Annouck Lepere, in a minky grey dress which was corsety and cut-outy, with a gigantic Gucci snaffle-bit belt. Love.

Frida's sneaker co-designer, the man behind the Gucci Ronson trainer: music maestro Mark Ronson, did not disappoint. With an Elvis quiff/bouff and a white trouser suit which made us think about Philadelphia cheese all night, the fashion newbie had brilliantly matched his black and white spotty Gucci Ronsons to his spotty shirt.

Leigh Lezark was spinning the wheels of steel in a matching top, belt and headphones - all embellished with jangly silver hardwear. Head to toe in black, naturellement, including her trademark impossibly glossy razor sharp bob (WANT).

Also in the house - half of Duran Duran, and a man in a piratey eye-patch. Plus numerous Gucci insiders wearing this seasons I-would-kill-any-of-my-friends-for-one Aztec prints in fuschia/white or orange/grey/white. Plus - microscopic canapes! Passionfruit cocktails! Fashionistas twisting their ankles on the cobblestone street outside in their six inch Gucci heels! It was a brilliant night. As you can tell from the poor quality of our photos....
