I’m not ashamed to say that the words ‘gifting suite’ still give me a shiver of excitement. Yes, I’m shallow, but what can you do? I hadn’t heard of German brand ‘Zalando’ before, but when I learned that zalando.co.uk was ‘the world’s largest online wardrobe’ (‘it’s like a fashion Amazon’, whispered one girl) I was out the door and on my way to Leicester Square.
Excitingly, the event was held in the glamorous W Hotel, in the very same suite (‘E WOW’) that Leonardo DiCaprio stayed when he was down for the Wolf of Wall Street premier. I’m not going to lie, there were many mutterings of ‘that’s where Leo slept’, ‘Leo might have touched that towel’ from myself and the other press and bloggers invited.
Inside the impressive suite hung some very impressive clothes. I had my beady fashion eye keenly focused on a satin Laurél dress with bold brush strokes and arm-flattering sleeves. A silvery Michael Kors tuxedo jacket was getting lots of appreciation too. My obsession for Modalu bags was confirmed with a deep, glossy oxblood Pippa.
Between browsing, I joined the queue for an amazing KMS blow dry and had my nails done by Little Minx, in an Sophia Loren style OPI shade called ‘Italian Love Affair’.
All in all, a very nice afternoon - thanks Zalando!
I loved the Zalando collaboration with Italian blogger Eleonora Carisi - the print was fab!
A shirt with animals all over it. Can you have too many?
