Freak Deluxe’s Fashion Night Out

Last week Leigh (@stylecanteen) and I stepped out for Vogue Fashion’s Night Out. There were so many things to do, it literally made my head hurt. I made a list of faves, places that I definitely wanted to hit that night.

First stop was Bond St, for a Chanel manicure! I was so excited to get my nails done in the new Khaki vernis, alas the queue was too long, so I headed off to Nicole Farhi for a crepe.

Crepe done we hopped, skipped, and jumped across the road for the Louis Vuitton event where Alice Dellal was DJing. We queued up to get our photo taken in the LV photo booth with our handmade accessories made from Vogue covers.

Down the street One Night Only were playing in Burberry, the lead singer wore the black shearling jacket. I’m sure that jacket is just like a pair of Ray-Ban sunnies, anyone that puts it on is instantly HOT. Leigh couldn’t help but try one on too, she is desperate to get one for herself.

Vivienne Westwood and Moschino were CUTE, I so want one of these bags to sleep in!

One of my last stops was Furla, where I had an Oz Bella cocktail made with berries and Isolobella Sambuca. I was given a liquorish straw to drink it with, it was delish! The event coincided with the new Wizard of Oz collection by Furla.

A perfect end to a great night. Can’t wait for the next one!

Vogue Fashion’s Night Out – Furla

Isolabella, the Italian Sambuca, teams up with luxury accessory designer Furla for an indulgent in-store evening of cocktails and shopping as part of ‘Vogue Fashion’s Night Out’ – the annual global retail therapy initiative, now in its second year.

To celebrate, Isolabella will unveil a new cocktail ‘Oz Bella’ inspired by the launch of Furla’s new ‘Wizard of Oz’ collection. The event is taking place at Furla central London on 221 Regent Street, W1B 4NJ between 7pm and 10pm. The store will be open to all.

‘Vogue Fashion’s Night Out’ was launched in 2009 as an international, multi-sensory, shopping experience with each participating store stamping their own identity on their ‘events’. Last year, this celebration of fashion shopping inspired thousands of style conscious consumers to visit stores around the world – making it the largest shopping event in history. This year’s initiative is set to be even bigger, with an additional three new cities taking place – bringing the total number of participants up to 16.

Mark Collins, Senior Brand Manager for Isolabella said: “For us Furla is an obvious partner, as not only are they an Italian icon, they are synonymous with high quality understated elegance. Isolabella is a stylish high quality extra fine Sambuca made in Milan, Italy thus the result is an evening for shoppers to celebrate the very essence of Italian creativity.”

Furla is a leading Italian brand specialising in luxury handbags and accessories for men and women. They have outlets around the world including five shops in London. In honour of VFNO on Wednesday 8th September, Furla will be closing their Regent Street store at the later time of 10pm.

In addition to the exclusive ‘Oz Bella’ shoppers will also be able to savour an ‘Orange Bella’ or ‘Candied Dream’. In these two cocktails the succulent taste of Mediterranean oranges are combined perfectly with the delicious flavour of anise as it is enjoyed through a distinctive liquorice straw – an irresistible taste experience which will be available to all on the night.
