Luella Bartley opens her Christmas grotto at Liberty’s

Despite hearing that Luella was to cease trading, the designer was in high spirits last night as Liberty’s opened their Christmas grotto that has been given a magical makeover from Luella Bartley herself. As carol singers sung, friendly Leon staff offered free chocolate brownies and flapjacks that went down very well! The windows, which Luella also has creative direction over, were equally festive with a giant tinsel robin and traditional patriotic scenes of living rooms over-decorated with paper chains, Christmas cards and tacky decorations. Inspiration for our own flat this year has definitely been found!

One window that wasn’t so traditional!

Luella Goes Crazy for Owen Plummer

A new collaboration with Zine creator, publisher and illustrator, Owen Plummer has injected a little bit of multi-coloured youth to Luella tees, bags and brooches. Currently on display at the Brook Street store, the quirky crazy prints and doodled designs are a far cry from the more ‘grown up’ collection and Minnie Mouse shapes that Luella showed us on Monday at LFW.

Unseen London Fashion Week

We’ve all seen the pics that circulate the web and yes Christopher Kane, Topshop and Luella were amazing but not ones to follow the crowd we thought we’d share a few of the more random and special moments of LFW.

Bistrotheque cafe & bar at 180 The Strand. Amazing slices of cake and great tacos.

The black and white Union Jack’s that hung proud around the venue. Very ‘anti-fashion’.

Not quite Posh (who we thought may be in the parked car behind the tent) but Mr. Walliams no less looking rather suave!

The Matches stand at LFW designed by the brilliant Gary Card. The bright garish colours looked great set against the palatial courtyard of Somerset House.

From behind- our man taking us in the complimentary Rickshaw to the pop up Armani cafe on St. Martins Lane. Poor waiter misunderstood our order 3 times! Result- 3 free Armani cocktails. Yum!

Giant pink inflatable mouse? bear? er not too sure but looked good in the main stairwell at 180 The Strand.
