Last night Amanda Wakeley celebrated the launch of her new flagship store at 18 Albemarle Street. The glittering guest list (that included Elizabeth Hurley, Alexandra Shulman, Liza Butcher, Olivia Inge and Saffron Aldridge) indulged in a sumptuous menu of bespoke delights provided by Mark Hix. Soft-boiled quail’s eggs with Oscietra caviar (amongst other things) were washed down with Wakely’s favourite wine from Hix’s very own brand and bespoke Belvedere cocktails, also by Mark Hix.
Amanda Wakeley is the latest in a string of big name brands to find a home on Albemarle Street, joining Paul Smith, Tiffany and Globetrotter, with more high-end designers expected to follow suit later this year. The store will host the showing of her new collection this February, when Amanda Wakely takes part in London Fashion Week.
