Jeanette will be invading Start Boutique's basement this month, transforming it into the latest version of his illustrious store Jeanette’s. Stock will be pulled from the Spring/Summer '10 collections, and will also include a selection of one-off pieces and vintage classics from an array of designers. The launch party last night saw entertainment from off-the-wall tranny-punk act, Lady Noise, who provided a true tribute to Jeanette’s panache and style. Neighbouring hot spot Callooh Callay kitted out START’s bar, contributing Plymouth Gin and Schweppe’s Tonic to the guests, who included Ben Grimes, Dominic Jones and Louise Gray. Jeanette’s is now proudly open in START’s basement, with his ‘n’ hers fitting rooms decorated by Louise Gray and James Long, and online (www.start-london.com). Stock includes current and vintage pieces from designers such as Jonathan Saunders, James Long, Nicholas Kirkwood, Louise Grey, Blaak and Roksana Illincic.
These eclectic pieces are quite appealing, as they do possess a vintage look. I'm particularly taken with the dress in picture one, what a perfect piece of work!
