Still running ridiculously behind on my party posts, sorry! The launch of the Sportmax for Cutler and Gross collection actually took place the week before last BUT it was a thoroughly enjoyable evening and the collection is divine so it would be a crime not to share any of it with you lovely lot. After spending the best part of an hour trying on the entire contents of my wardrobe (one of those getting dressed situations) I finally settled on my camo print jumper plus leather mini and pattern clashing accessories and set off at high speed to Dover Street Arts Club where the event was being held. Luckily my serial partner in partying, Nik Thakkar is also prone to lateness so we arrived simultaneously and made our way up the wonderful winding staircase to an already packed venue.

Unsurprisingly the glasses were awesome. After all, Cutler and Gross are always great so add the cool little sister label of Italian purveyor of all things chic, MaxMara into the mix and things are going to get fabulous. Naturally we had to try about half the collection on and I was sad to have to remove my favourite frames all too soon. My sulk was abated pretty quickly when I discovered the bar was serving Lychee Martinis AKA my cocktail of choice and had to try pretty hard not to come over all teenage house party and start hoarding them in a corner lest supplies run out later on.
Leigh Lezark & Geordan Nicol
My fellow attendees included everyone from Julia Sarr-Jamois, Bip Ling and Amber Atherton to Aluna Francis and Yasmin Le Bon all looking stunning in Sportmax. Leigh Lezark was on the decks and, after a Lychee Martini or three, I decided to go and say hello to my long term style crush and as is so often the case with people you suspect will be scary, Leigh was utterly lovely.

There was a whole lotta mingling, a lotta cocktail drinking and a couple more trips back to the collection display to try on a couple more pairs. Great party, gorgeous glasses, an evening well spent I think!
Love Ella. X
