Needless to say we are rather excited about our new home at 667 Madison Avenue and as such could think of no better way to break in the boutique than with a bit if a do. From the guest appearances of Melanie Griffith and Emily Mortimer to Winston, our very own ‘Bulldog of Britain’ we brought a bit of British charm to the big apple.
In the spirit of all things British, canapes were a curious take on traditional British favourites such as: fish & chip taquitos and bangers & mash sliders and our good friend Fabrice Limon was back again to design some delicious cocktails; ‘The Macallan Highland Fix’ and ‘Portobello’s Big Apple Fizz’. Guest also sipped on Pol Roger champagne, the favourite tipple of Winston Churchill (who was himself a Smythson fan).
We would like to extend a special thanks to Hardy Amies for dressing the Smythson doormen and to our kind drink sponsors Macallan Whiskey, Portobello Road Gin and Pol Roger as well as all contributors to The Curious World of Smythson exhibition.
