TIE ONE ON: Last Thursday, Harrods feted the completed overhaul of its new men’s department in Paris, and the London-based department store has plans for an even bigger bash back at home in December. “It will be celebrity packed,” said fashion and beauty director Marigay McKee, who welcomed clients and press to a cocktail at the Ritz. “I feel like I should be placed under a Christmas tree,” said Arjun Bhasin, GQ India’s dapper fashion director, alluding to his first outing decked out in a bow tie. “Nobody wears bow ties in India.” Bhasin said he holds Harrods close to his heart. “My father made an annual shopping trip to Harrods. It was the only place he ever shopped,” Bhasin said.
WHISTLES’ NEW WARES: Jane Shepherdson has taken her Whistles makeover to the next level, unveiling a capsule collection of cocktail dresses designed by Roksanda Ilincic for the British high street store. “I wanted to wait for the right retailer that could reproduce my pieces with a high level of attention to detail,” said Ilincic, who has never before done a collaboration and who signed a three-season contract with Whistles. Some dresses pop in jewel tones such as citrine, aquamarine, and fuchsia, while others are covered in signature Ilincic-appliquéd roses made of black PVC. The collection will hit selected stores, including concessions in Selfridges and Harrods, during London Fashion Week and prices will start from 175 pounds, or $290.
