The day after London Fashion Week ended I headed straight to Heathrow for a flight to Milan. This time I wasn’t going for the shows, I had been invited to attend the launch of Roland Mouret’s new menswear line Mr. in a two week pop-up at Milan’s legendary fashion & lifestyle store 10 Corso Como. (More of this later.)
After a glass of Prosecco and an up close and personal look at Mr. at Corso Como, a small group of us headed down the street to Alla Cucina delle Langhe, or le Langhe as fashion people call it. A fashion week institution for its table hopping, Negroni-drinking, and the truffles which are grated over risottos and pasta, it’s the perfect place to celebrate a fashion event – such as the launch of Roland Mouret’s fantastic menswear.

Who says fashion people don’t eat?
And then afterwards, for a group photo:
