BLOWING THE WHISTLE: After Champagne to celebrate the opening of Whistles’ new Dover Street store, the fashion flock alighted at the nearby Dover Street Arts Club for more festivities. Chief executive Jane Shepherdson revealed she’s been speaking to some big American department stores and hopes to open a Whistles concession in one of them this fall.
“I think the U.S. market is an obvious one for us as our aesthetic is similar. We like the sporty feel with simple clean lines and I think Americans like that, too,” she mused.
Guests were entertained by DJ Jack Guinness and some flashing rubber headpieces created by balloon lady named Twistina,. Inspiration for a new Whistles’ millinery line perhaps? “It’s tempting,” laughed Shepherdson.
