To mark the opening, a stylish mix of models and fashion insiders joined Michael for an intimate cocktail party inside the townhouse. Guests including Caro Daur, Jessica Kahawaty, Amelia Windsor and Hana Cross sipped Champagne while they toured the store, taking in the Eero Saarinen womb chairs, photographs by Bruce Burnbaum and modernist paintings by John O’Hara.
Following cocktail hour, the party migrated to Beck at the iconic Brown’s Hotel for a private seated dinner. Surrounded by pink peonies, with a signature pink cocktail to match, Michael and guests were joined by Kate Moss, Gemma Chan, Naomie Harris, Sonam Kapoor, Jourdan Dunn, and more to ring in the night. The festivities came to a close with the crowd on their feet as a London-based gospel choir serenaded the audience with renditions of “Love Train” and “Happy”—a fitting end to an enchanted evening.
