SLOANE RANGERS: Club Monaco put its stamp on London Friday night, taking over Sloane Square with a party to celebrate its first women’s flagship store. Yurts were dotted about the square, housing a speakeasy serving espresso martinis, a Taschen literary space and a vinyl listening station, while food trucks served gyoza dumplings, pizzas and gelato. Isaac Ferry and Harley Viera Newton DJ’d. Among the guests enjoying the fortuitously warm evening were Edie Campbell, Paula Goldstein, Portia Freeman, George Lamb, Patrick Grant, Robert Konjic, Kristina Blahnik, Tom Hollander and Tallulah Harlech.
TV and radio star Lamb said he’s setting up a new radio station. “It’s going to play the best music of all genres and transcend age, race and class, while raising global and social awareness. It’ll be digital and remember your favorite music. I’ve got techie geeks on board to make that happen. Plus the name is properly cool. I’m not telling you what it is but it is very cool,” he teased.
The 4,000-square-foot, two-floor flagship opened last month at 32-33 Sloane Square, stocking women’s wear, vintage clothing and accessories, as well as home wares and flowers.
