The Moet Room

Even though Gareth Pugh has decided to set his next show at the Paris Fashion Week,  he has not abandoned London altogether.  He will be collaborating with Moet and Chandon  in creating the interior for the fourth season of The Moet Room. The 26-year-old budding British designer, whose fashion pieces mix bondage-fetish and gothic-glamour, has created a quiet sanctuary for VIPs to take time out away from the frenzy of the fashion shows. On the collaboration Gareth said: “It’s very interesting to be able to translate what I am doing on the runway into an interior space. The Moët Room […]

Sanderson really knows how to combine elegance, style and beauty into one shoe. The shoe-boot is a noughties fashion phenomenon and Sanderson’s take is set to be seen on all the right feet this Autumn/Winter. The suede platform boot has an eighties feel with black lace detail on the inner, nodding to the huge lace story played out on the international catwalks, seen at Alexander McQueen and Givenchy. The delicate pastel […]
