Saffron Road Celebrates 20 Years

One of Richmond Row's flagship stores, Saffron Road, celebrated 20 years providing London women with fashion-forward clothing from designers such as Lida Biday, with a customer appreciation event, complete with cocktails and a fashion show. I thought it would be a perfect opportunity to get some photos of stylishly-clad women, and there were more than a few of those, but at one point, I felt like I was at a reception following a particularly elegant funeral--I was surrounded by black, black, and more black. When questioned about her lack-of-colour choice for the night, one woman explained that "black is easy--it's slimming, and it's not difficult to co-ordinate". I certainly can't argue with that, and my wardrobe contains a substantial amount of black, but what about pairing it with some colour, like this woman did with her strikingly- patterned long jacket? I also love her hair--what a unique style statement!
As the only man present at the event, this guy would have stood out no matter what he was wearing, but I was glad to see he was wearing something other than black. I like the subtle plaid of the pants, and the shape of the brown suede jacket keeps it casual, but still dressy.
