KV Couture Collection 2016
Fashion designer Kristina Viirpalu has a unique and recognizable style. The new KV Couture collection has drawn inspiration from the
embroidery of Estonian national costumes and the delicate patterns of the knitted Haapsalu shawl. Stylizing these patterns Kristina has created a collection of abundantly detailed pieces of art.
Kristina also emphasizes that although functionality is not the primary characteristic of a couture dress, her designs are wearable,
comfortable and can be worn many different ways. Adding a luxurious skirt to a bikini style top creates a sumptuous wedding
dress. Some dresses can even be fitted into a small handbag. Multifunctionality with elegant glamour and opulent detailing
characterizes the new KV Couture collection.
Sanderson Long Bar and Garden
50 Berners Street
The central garden terrace at the Sanderson, inspired by a Japanese garden, is a good spot if the forecast is uncertain, as parts of it are always covered. For the summer, the space has been restyled, and also has a new summer residency with chef Allan Pickett. Or, grab a hi-ball from the Long Bar.
A lavish Urban Hotel in the heart of London’s West End, Sanderson offers a retreat from the bustle of the city into a world of fantasy and wellbeing. The landmarked 50s building has been transformed by Philippe Starck into a surreal Cocteau-like dream world, epitomizing a “new luxury” that is smart, pared down, and tempered with a healthy dose of wit and irony. With the absence of “normal” walls and a floor-to-ceiling glass facade that diffuses natural light through flowing layers of ethereal sheer curtains, Sanderson’s indoor/outdoor lobby is a layered and sophisticated environment that is totally original. Surrounding an extraordinary landmark Courtyard Garden designed by Philip Hicks, Starck’s visionary style mixes baroque and modern, juxtaposing Salvador Dali’s curvaceous red lips sofa with classic 60s mosaics and hand-carved African furniture with an oversized Louis XV armoire.
The result blends wit, magic and surprise in an elegant balancing act of extravagance and pure simplicity
