LONDON — Tiffany & Co. is debuting a retail concept called Style Studio in a new London neighborhood, and is hoping that customers will relax into it, leave traditional notions of luxury behind — and live a little.
The store, a global first for Tiffany, has a prime position in Covent Garden, an area that’s been building retail momentum and raising the bar on luxury. The new Tiffany, at 13 James Street, is a few steps from the Covent Garden market and near to the newly refurbished King and Floral streets, which offer up a mix of food, contemporary fashion and luxury beauty. Petersham Nurseries has recently opened its first central London outpost — and a garden shop — in Covent Garden, while Sushisamba is set to open later this summer. Cora Pearl, a sister restaurant to Kitty Fishers in Mayfair, opens this week.
As 2018 comes to a close, we’re taking a look back at the best party photos of the year. First up, newlyweds Nick Jonas and Priyanka Chopra in black tie at Ralph Lauren’s 50th anniversary show in September.

“Sand, summer, sea,” is how designer Sarah Staudinger describes of the beginnings of her latest collection for Staud, writes @elmercer.
Summer was encapsulated through an array of adorable picnic inspired garb in poppy hues like tablecloth gingham compact knit playsuits and matching sets and plenty of crudite-emblazoned offerings. The best foodie-looks included a salad printed waffle minidress with matching cardigan or a matching neon green knit set with fringe made of mini glass lemons (and matching croakies). #wwdfashion
