Before getting into the new collection’s details, let’s take a moment and praise RW&CO’s stellar breakfast for the unveiling of Elle By RW&CO second collab. It was last Wednesday morning and it happened to be a bright sunny day! If it wasn’t for the cold, you’d have believed spring already landed. And it kinda did – Inside the oval room, at the Ritz Carlton. Different hues of blooms were the core of the set-up: Four flower walls for the presentation, soft bouquets on the tables/buffet. Beautiful, and kinda dreamy! In a corner, three musicians (or were they four?) filled the air with classical notes from their instruments. The breakfast – which was a morning interpretation of Afternoon Tea – definitely made justice to the Edwardian era (but what do I know! I wasn’t alive back then ;)). For a moment, we forgot completely about the cold outside and the -20. It was spring all over again, and everyone looked revived! “Forget the collection, RW&Co threw all this to celebrate me” said jokingly Sophie Lanza‘s – whose birthday was that same day.
While watching the valet catch a cab for us, Emanuela Lolli, founder of Fashion Preview, closed her parka and mumbled: “Let’s go back to winter”. We got out and left Spring behind!
Bref… it was a beautiful morning!
