As you know, Mavi recently hosted an art competition called ‘What’s Your Brooklyn’ where Mavi welcomed New York City artists to submit their mural designs based on what Brooklyn means to them.
Kate Wilkes, was selected as the winning artist. You can see the video above of her painting her piece onto the wall of Mavi’s store, which you can find at Mavi Park Slope, 205 5th Avenue (5th Avenue & Union Street) in Brooklyn. I think it looks really cool and it’s definitely something different from a denim brand!
Paige Adams-Geller was thrilled to open the first ever PAIGE SHOP in Europe within the iconic Selfridges Denim Studio in London last Thursday. The evening was hosted by the lovely Rosie Huntington-Whiteley alongside Paige for a two hour party and interview session. The ultimate Paige girl, Rosie has just been announced as the face of the lifestyle label for 2015 as I’m sure you already know.
Other guests included Gala Gordon, Laura Jackson, Jess Mills, Lara Mullen and Zara Martin who played a special DJ set for the night. I was also personally in attendance and got to see Paige again, chat about the new styles and catch up on things. Some of the new jeans are absolutely incredible and after having seen the Indio in Blue Galaxy Coated in person, I have to say I am completely in love with them!
The new 37 square meter space in Selfridges boasts a huge selection of Paige lifestyle product including 125 new fashion styles, 32 never-out-of-stock core denim jeans and 21 styles exclusive to Selfridges. I’ve included lots of photos from the night so you can see the new shop and also the guests in attendance. If you love the new styles too, you can shop them online at Paige Denim.
Diesel Black Gold opened its first global concept store on London’s Conduit Street last week! Under Andreas Melbostad’s Creative Direction, the launch was hosted by Renzo Rosso and Andreas Melbostad himself to celebrate the new Diesel Black Gold store, a brand new boutique that represents the first retail location of its kind, globally.
With catering provided by Cellar Society, guests dined on canapes of Goat’s curd with crushed pea, mint and artichoke, Monkfish, pancetta and rosemary spiedini and bundled green asparagus spears, complemented by elderflower and mint collins, prosecco and wine from Diesel Farm. The music was also provided by 10Tigers. It looked like it was a fantastic night!
It wouldn’t be a Diesel event if celebs didn’t attend, so of course there were celebs like Stefano Rosso, Sienna Miller, Luke Evans, Kyla La Grange, Arlissa, MKS, Jack Fox, Ella Catliff, Nellee Hooper, Harriet Verney, Lou Hayter, Eloise Showering, Petra Palumbo, Severino Panzetta, Lady Victoria Hervey and Amber Anderson in attendance. You can see the photos in the gallery below and don’t forget to go and check out the brand new store!
