From November 27th through November 29th, The Miumiu-London, a private women’s club, will make its debut in the Café Royal on Regent Street, London. Recently restored to its former glory and reopened for the first time on this occasion, the Café Royal becomes the central meeting point for Miu Miu members embarking on a three-day succession of varied activities celebrating various aspects of Miu Miu femininity. Members and their guests will have exclusive access to a new shopping experience, along with the opportunity to preview and purchase the Resort and Spring / Summer 2013 collections. Highlights include collaborations with Vivienne Westwood and Stephen Jones, both of whom created special limited edition products for the occasion. All proceeds from the sale of these items will be generously donated to the charities Cool Earth and Macmillan Cancer Support respectfully. The display cases of Stephen Jones will feature hats, made from the resort 2013 collection while sculptures of Joe Rush were specially created for the showcase of Vivienne Westwood’s window. The famed film production designer, Caroline Smith, oversaw the décor of the interiors, while Cathy Edwards styled the Miu Miu collections and special product for The-MiuMiu-London.
