Those summer nights

-

The London social season is in full swing: note the heels stepping out of black cabs from Mayfair to Knightsbri­dge. On Sloane Street, at the Belmond Cadogan Hotel’s Summer Salon opening, guests were eased along on their weary path by erupting florals, the London Philharmon­ic, and a scent ‘journey’ courtesy of Miller Harris. It was all the poor souls could do to swoon on to a banquette with a ponzu oyster.

Nearby, e-tailer Matches Fashion threw open the doors of its Georgian town house to launch a collaborat­ion with Italy’s Pellicano Hotels, with dolce vita glamour – and aperitivi – in spades.
