ENGLISH ACCENT: Katie Grand and a cheerful British brigade animated the Milan party organized by Hogan Wednesday night to celebrate the second chapter of its accessories collaboration with the Love magazine editor-in-chief.
“This a friend of a friend’s house and I wanted to inject some English spirit in this gorgeous location,” said Grand, referring to the 18th century Palazzo Trivulzio in the heart of Milan. Cara Delevingne and Tallulah Harlech were among the models sporting the new shoes and leather goods collection, which features a strong focus on zebra-print pony skin, while designers Tabitha Simmons, Paula Cademartori and Giles Deacon were enjoying the abundant drinks and the captivating music.
“I flew in just for this event. It’s extremely important to support real friends,” said Deacon, who, like Grand, designs a footwear capsule collection for an Italian brand — in his case, Superga.
