Lucy in Disguise vs The Village Bicycle; It's PARTY WARS!

Lily with Sarah Owen, Chloe Moretz of Kick Ass

Last night, all the fashwan party action seemed to be taking place in swanky WEST London, rather than the grotty Eastern areas of Shoreditch and Dalston that we Graziettas are more used to. Anyway, first stop was Harvey Nichols in Knightsbridge for the grand launch of Lily Allen and her sister Sarah Owen’s range of ready-to-wear dresses for Lucy in Disguise.

What can we say? When we first published the sketches for the collection a few months back, opinion was somewhat divided as to whether it was a range we’d want to buy into. However, they cleverly dressed the cream of their celebby guests in the dresses themselves and the result was delightful. We’re down with the looks, but what do you think?

Only a hop, skip and a jump down the road in Notting Hill a rival glittery fashion bash was taking place. This time it was in honour of fashion entrepreneur Willa Keswick’s new boutique, cheerfully named The Village Bicycle (!) Here a host of top guests included Julia Restoin-Roitfeld (pictured with Laura Bailey), Daisy and Pearl Lowe, Poppy and Cara Delevigne, PLUS Grazia favourite knitwear designer Craig Lawrence. The needle-master dressed Willa for the big night – who was looking like a foxy goth in her frondy black minidress. 

Huh. We WANT Poppy's Miu Miu clutch!

Phew! The party was what we like to called “rammed” and a good time was had by all. Looks like the Friday morning sore head trend kicked in a day early this week!
