TRUE ROMANCE: Love was in the air at Mulberry’s Rue Saint Honoré store on Wednesday night at a signing party for photographer Chris Craymer’s first book, “Romance.” Manning the decks, model Iekeliene Stange said she’s due to set off in her camper van for a summer tour of northern Scandinavia, where she’ll be photographing the region’s indigenous Sami people, otherwise known as reindeer people. “Their culture is disappearing as their land is being taken over by nature reserves,” she said, as guests including actresses Roxane Mesquida, Clémentine Poidatz and Fanny Valette munched Union Jack cupcakes and viewed 20 limited edition photos that were later auctioned in aid of Unicef.
Across town, Fifi Chachnil, Cameron Silver and Colette’s Sarah Lerfel joined Azzaro’s Vanessa Seward to toast her pre-spring collaboration with Florence Deygas and Olivier Kuntzel. The event took place in the artists’ atelier in the north of Paris. Coming next, illustrations by Deygas of Seward’s cat, Mr. Joe, will feature in Azzaro’s main spring line. Azzaro is said to be readying to open a store in London this fall, likely to be situated in or around Mount Street.
