DINNER WITH UNIQUENESS

Photos by me and Sim Canetty-Clarke
Since my lens seems to have been firmly fixed on the food at Bocca Di Lupo all night, I thought it only fair to mix in some actual event photography from the Uniqueness dinner, luckily somebody is keeping their eye on the prize. The dinner, hosted by Alessandra Facchinetti and Caroline Issa, was super fun and relaxed; a rare chance to meet so many amazing people face to face. I'd never been to Bocca Di Lupo before, but the food was delicious! I can see why everyone loves it, the food was simple and delicate; classic italian cuisine, my favourite being the Crudita di Mare, incredible raw prawn and scallop dish. The reason Alessandra had chosen the restaurant is because it was the one place that tasted just like home. The manifesto of Uniqueness is to have fun and live freely, express yourself with colour, print, desire of the moment. There is no seasonal story, the pieces are affordable and available to buy online immediately after they have been shown at Milan fashion week. Pretty brave and ground braking if you ask me. It's obvious fashion is shifting and I'm looking forward to following Alessandra wherever Uniqueness takes her.
Thank you to Caroline and Alessandra for being such great hosts, and to TCS for organising everything

  6. So chic!! Isn't the food delicious? I love Bocca di Lupo.

    It's really interesting that she's decided to buck the fashion world trends and sell directly after fashion week. Tbh it makes complete sense to me from a marketing perspective, particularly if you are selling directly/online rather than waiting for stores to make orders.

    Talking of orders, where is my invitation to the private orders night...

    1. It was so delicious! The pistachio ice cream I had for dessert took me to heaven and back.

      I agree that it's unnecessary if you are selling online. Makes me think about what I'm doing, but then I guess when I do start stocking in shops i'll be glad for the time.

      The private orders evening is happening on the 31st, I'll try and track down the invite

  9. Charlie you went to Bocca di Lupo and didn't go across the road to Gelupo? IT'S AMAZING!! The coffee sorbet... Last time I was there they had a Coronation Chicken flavour too. The shopkeeper was trying to push it on an older lady who said "Listen, I'm a vegetarian and anti-royalist, so I don't think so". It was hilair.
