Art, food and fashion got together on Tuesday night to celebrate the prodigal flavors of life when Miuccia Prada opened a three-night only private members’ club called The-Miumiu-London at the revamped and shortly to re-open Café Royal in London’s Piccadilly. The women’s member’s club is offering a three-day membership to a select few from the world of fame and fancy to its richly-equipped ambience. The club boasts décor conceived by film production designer Caroline Smith. It has a retail space selling a limited edition collection of Miu Miu’s Resort collection, styled by Cathy Edwards. The club will also display limited edition, spring range items by Vivienne Westwood and Stephen Jones with all proceeds from the sale of their designs to be donated to the charities Cool Earth and Macmillan Cancer Support respectively.
It has a conversation room that is a treasure chest of entertainment such as screenings of the acclaimed Womens’ Tales, a series of short films directed by and starring women for the brand.
A series of lectures will be given by a group of influential style icons through a forum including Bonnie Wright, Shala Monroque, Penny Martin and W* contributor Alice Rawsthorn which will be streamed live so that you can participate too.
It has a restaurant with the kitchens graced by renowned chefs including Andrew Turner, April Bloomfield and Margot Henderson who have each tailored a menu for members to sample. The club’s lounge and cocktail bar will host a line of international DJs including Misty Rabbit, Yasmina Dexter and Roisin Murphy.
The concept doesn’t end after the third day. The-MiuMiu London will be hopping to another city in the near future.
