To celebrate their 50th anniversary, Diptyque (one of my favourite brands, full stop) have a snazzy little vintage 1961 French Renault driving all over London for two weeks before taking off to Paris for Fashion Week there. And since the lovely people at Diptyque loaned me the car (complete with a very dapper driver), I decided to turn it into one of those perfect London days and cram in all manner of loveliness in between all my appointments with PRs.
First up was an appointment at the Chanel head offices (a dream come true), so afterwards I took advantage of being on Bond Street and raced off to (again) try on the glittery shoes I can’t stop dreaming of in Miu Miu. Afterwards, I hopped back in the car and it was over to Lowndes Street in Belgravia, where I had an invite from Pierre Herme to sample the wares at his London salon (delicious is an understatement – but more on that in a later post). After I’d had my fill of sugary gourmand bliss, I went over to look at Karl Lagerfeld’s fantastical Chanel installation at Harrods (more on this later), which was so beautiful that I had to physically force myself away before I missed all the afternoon appointments! From there it was over to Shoreditch (I waved to Big Ben through the car window as we passed my London office at the Houses of Parliament on the way) for rose bellinis and some pre-Fashion Week hair primping at my favourite London salon, Taylor Taylor, before a marathon Fashion Week organisation session with Liberty London Girl into the late hours.
I am so stuffed full of pleasurable experiences (and the subsequent sleep-deprivation), and Fashion Week hasn’t even begun yet!
How do you love to spend a precious mid-week day off work and all to yourself?
Love, Miss B xx
