When? Rising bright and early on day two of London Fashion Week, i-D online squeezed into the jam-packed Portico Rooms at Somerset House for the finest of wake-up calls courtesy of Sister by Sibling’s SS13 collection. Never ones to kick-back and relax, later that day the Sibling set threw open the doors of their Tea Salon at The W Hotel and i-D online was hand for a few lolz over a few leaves. Just what the doctor ordered.
Where? In amongst the plumped cushions, lacquered leather and dark wood of the W Lounge at W London, Leicester Square.
What? Tea and cake galore! W Lounge’s pastry chef rustled up a menu packed with sweet treats, the perfect pick-me-up after a day dashing around the shows. And once all woes had been calmed with a cuppa, there were pink rock shandy Chase vodka cocktails for all. As guests chattered, Sibling presented Doppelgänger, a film based on their new collection.
