Ieri sono stata da Radley London per il lancio della collezione Autunno Inverno 2014 e sono tornata per un attimo all’autunno.
Un pavimento ricoperto di foglie secche, stufe accese – finte- , castagne e cupcakes a forma di fungo – vere – ci hanno accolto alla Music Room, insieme alla guest star della serata, Monty, l’adorabile Scottish Terrier che presta la sua immagine al marchio Radley.
In UK tutti conoscono Radley per la qualità della borse e il prezzo accessibile. La pelle è il cuore della produzione Radley: il carattere, la forza e la forma di ciascuno dei loro progetti inizia da questo materiale.
Tra le novità presentate la nuova No.1 range con la carpet bag che uscirà in agosto e la Bloomsbury collection disponibile in differenti colori, incluso l’energico lava orange.
Prezzi: da £39 per le clutch ad un massimo di £379 per le large bag in pelle.
Yesterday I went to the Radley London AW14 press day, for an hour I left the Spring outside and immersed myself in an Autumnal feel.
A carpet of leaves, chestnuts, mushroom cupcakes welcomed us at The Music Room, along with the Guest Star of the evening, Monty the super cute Scottie dog, “testimonial” of the Radley brand.
Everybody in UK knows Radley for the quality of their bags at an affordable price. Leather is at the heart of Radley, the character, strength and shape of each of their designs begins with this material.
Among the product launches the new No.1 and the Carpet Bag, look out for them in August, and the stunning Bloomsbury collection, available in several key colours including the powerful Lava Orange.
Price range: from £39 for a small clutch to £379 for a large leather bag.

Appena tornata dalla Thailandia e ancora in lotta con il jet lag sono pronta a ripartire con una settimana piena di appuntamenti, lavoro, palestra, amici, che terminerà con un evento per il quale faccio il countdown da più di un mese, il Be:Fit London, il più importante evento inglese dedicato al fitness e alla nutrizione che si svolgerà dal 28 al 30 Marzo presso Old Billingsgate.
Kirsty Gallacher, Denise Lewis, l’atleta olimpica Victoria Pendleton e l’ex modella Jodie Kidd sono le ambasciatrici ufficiali e insieme a molte marche di abbigliamento sportivo e nutrition brands come Yogi Tea, Koko Dairy Free e i magazines Cosmo Body, Harper’s Bazaar – e molti altri – presenzieranno ai tre giorni dell’evento.
Be:Fit London fornirà dimostrazioni dal vivo di training, dieta e nutrizione e terrà lezioni di fitness gratuite nel Reebok Fitness Studio con il supporto di alcuni importanti trainer come Leah Kim, Nike’s Global Yoga Ambassador e Anya Lahiri dal Barry’s Bootcamp, definito da molti “The Best Workout in the World”.
Sarò a Be:Fit London domenica con un’agenda incredibilmente già piena che include: la Beyonce Workout, per imparare a ballare come Beyonce (spero che la canzone sarà Bootylicious, magari porta bene ) e Insanity, il più popolare DVD fitness del mondo che promette di dare un corpo incredibile in 60 giorni.

Metti un sabato sera fuori: il tubino nero preferito, i tacchi e la macchina fotografica, prima tappa da Starbucks per un Gingerbread Latte che dovrebbe scaldarci nel tragitto da casa a Trafalgar Square.
Per la prima volta assisterò ad un concerto di Natale con coro, archi e pianoforte all’interno di St. Martin-in-the-Fields, chiesa anglicana che si trova a Trafalgar e che questa sera sarà sede di “A ceremony of Carols”.
Quella dei canti di natale è una tradizione che non mi appartiene e proprio per questo sono estremamente curiosa e non so cosa aspettarmi.
L’aria è decisamente frizzante e le gote si fanno rosse mentre attendiamo che aprano il portone della chiesa, finalmente entriamo e intorno a noi famiglie, amici, coppie di ogni età siedono all’interno in uno spettacolare scenario illuminato dalla luce delle candele.
Qualche minuto dopo il coro inizia ad intonare i primi canti accompagnato dal pianoforte a coda: The Shepherds’ Farewell, Coventry Carol, Quem Pastores, ma il momento più coinvolgente è quando tutti si alzano in piedi e cantano Silent Night, che mi porta indietro… alle messe della Vigilia, ai pomeriggi di Natale passati sul divano guardando i film della Disney, alle merende con panettone e cioccolata calda…
“Silent night, holy night,
all is calm, all is bright…”
Grazie a Millennium Hotels per avermi regalato una serata speciale da aggiungere alla mia esperienza londinese.
A Saturday night out: your favourite little black dress, high heels and camera, first stop at Starbucks for a Gingerbread Latte, which should keep us warm on the way to Trafalgar Square.
For the first time I’ll be attending the “Ceremony of Carols” concert for choir, string quartet and organ which will take place at St Martin-in-the-Fields, an English Anglican church that tonight will be completely lit by candles.
This kind of Christmas concert is a tradition that doesn’t really belong to me; that’s why I’m extremely curious and I don’t know what to expect.
The air is chilly and the cheeks become red while we wait for the doors to open. We finally get in, around us families, friends, couples of all ages sit down in a spectacular church illuminated by the candles.
A few minutes later the choir begins to sing the first few songs accompanied by the organ: The Shepherds’ Farewell, Coventry Carol, Quem Pastores, but the most exciting moment is when everyone stands up to sing Silent Night together, and that brings me back in time… the Christmas Eves’ Mass, the afternoons spent on the couch watching Disney movies, the snack with panettone and hot chocolate…
“Silent night, holy night,
all is calm, all is bright…”
Thanks Millennium Hotels to gave me such a special night to remember.

Ultima settimana per partecipare ad House of Peroni, sempre al 41 di Portland Place, evento Peroni focalizzato questa volta su cinema e moda. La casa ha accolto una serie di creativi italiani con le loro opere, I fratelli Costardi – stelle Michelin qui sopra – ed il famoso mixologist Gerry Calabrese -The Hoxton Pony, nella foto qui sotto-, che ha ideato i cocktails con birra Peroni.
House of Peroni ospita una serie unica di eventi attraverso le quattro sale, ‘The House’, ‘The Bar’, ‘The Kitchen’ and ‘The Cinema’. L’entrata e’ gratuita ma alcuni degli eventi sono a pagamento, trovate tutte le info sul loro sito web.
The House of Peroni re-launches at 41 Portland Place this November with a new focus on film and fashion. It welcomed a raft of Italian creatives, the Michelin-starred Costardi Brothers and the mixologist Gerry Calabrese, who concocted drinks distilled from Peroni Nastro Azzurro beer.
Featuring a host of contemporary artists across the fields of art, design, photography, film, fashion and music, this creative space will showcase the freshest and most dynamic italian creatives to the public.
The House of Peroni hosts a unique series of paid for and no admission fee events across the four rooms, ‘The House’, ‘The Bar’, ‘The Kitchen’ and ‘The Cinema’. Click on their website to check out the various events!
Qui sotto I piatti che I Fratelli Costardi hanno creato per la casa, i miei highlights sono il risotto Rosso Valentino e la Dolce Vita!
Below the menu that Costardi Brothers created with a focus on Film and Fashion.
Created as the perfect snack to nibble while watching a film, the Spaghetti Western has the crunch of a crisp but is made from deep fried spaghetti. It is served with a pot of the Costardi’s own tomato purée.
THE DUCK HUNTER
Inspired by the movie Il Cacciatore di Anatre (The Duck Hunter), this simple finger-food-style dish is created with vacuum-cooked duck breast, flavoured with honey and Peroni Nastro Azzurro reduction and served with a barbecue sauce.
POTATO AND COD FISH MANTECATO
This creamy, contemporary spin on a traditional fish pie is an ode to Venice, famous for its canals and fish dishes, and, of course, the annual film festival. Christian Costardi also lived there for three beautiful and inspiring years.
Served in the Costardi Brothers’ personalised can, the Rosso Valentino is a rich tomato risotto with a zesty lemon and basil pesto topping. The vibrant red colour of the dish is a tribute to fashion designer Valentino’s signature shade.
PANE E TULIPANI
A tribute to the Italian director Silvio Soldini, this dish is inspired by his seminal film Pane E Tulipani (Bread and Tulips). A thick crust of homemade bread is layered with fresh liver pâté cooked in the Venetian style and topped with an edible flower.
BIANCO ROSSO E VERDONE
Incorporating the colours of the Italian national flag, this eye-pleasing dessert has a title that plays on the name of famous Italian director Carlo Verdone, who directed the film Bianco, Rosso e Verdone. The smooth white chocolate is offset by a tangy raspberry and strawberry sauce and an unexpected basil top.
LA DOLCE VITA
Named after an Italian classic, La Dolce Vita is a twist on another classic – the cupcake. This decadent desert is a soft sponge cake with a cream of chestnut filling and a salty caramel glacé topping for an exciting clash of flavours.
The House of Peroni, 41 Portland Place, London, W1B 1QH // 6th – 30th November 2013 // 12pm – 12am // Free admission to the venue, events vary in price.
English version only, however this discount is valid worldwide.
