BRIT PACK: The Brits were out in force at Galeries Lafayette’s Paris flagship Thursday evening as Mulberry hosted a party there to celebrate the launch of its spring ad campaign featuring Georgia May Jagger.
She has long been a fan of the brand. “My mum had some Mulberry luggage when I was a kid,” said the model, who admitted she is a compulsive collector of bags and shoes.
Her most recent purchases? Stack-heeled boots from Giuseppe Zanotti and Dolce & Gabbana t-bar plaid heels.
Jagger will walk in the Sonia Rykiel show Monday and will shortly be shooting three new commercials for Rimmel, she said.
But Jagger also has more personal projects in mind: She just bought her first house in London and has been enjoying decorating it. “It’s very colorful, lots of velvet, plush things,” said Jagger.
Later in the year she is heading to the Deep South with friends for a road trip. “I’m half Texan, so I’m going back to my roots,” said Jagger. “I’ve done a California road trip but never in the Deep South. It’s going to be fun.”
Singer Jessie Ware, who performed at the event, was raring to get home to see her new French bulldog puppy, meanwhile.
Performing in Shanghai at the Great Festival of Creativity earlier this week, she had the chance to meet Prince William and took the opportunity to ask him to choose a name for the pup.
“I blurted out I’ve got three names and I need to decide, can you just choose, and he did. Stanley. He didn’t go for Winston or Desmond. So now he’s by royal appointment Stanley,” she chuckled.
Guests at the event were invited to create their own name bracelet with stamps on Mulberry leather. “I was going to do one for my puppy, but they said they would send me a collar,” said Ware.
