It's Not Only About The Time It Tells You, But Also The Status It Gives You.'Chasebonstyle.
'Tea parties are a such a delight, darling' my HUSKY voice and there is always some level of assurance and certainty of oneself during a Tea Party. Cup cakes and champagne springs to mind. You don't dare to disagree.

This tea party event was to introduce the new winter/fall 12 collection of cK watches and jewelry. The event took place at the most serene of all places - VANILLA PLACE on 131 Titchfield Street. The white clean walls of the basement of the Vanilla Place complement the CK watches and jewellery that were displayed on the tall white structured square pillars.

As an adorer and allurer of the finest things in life, watches and jewellery are definitely one of them. Upon arrival, no time was wasted in scrutinizing the displayed pieces.Pleasure they were to my eyes and I am sure it was to the rest of social media party group.

The tea party wasn't all about eating cup cakes, sandwiches and drinking of champagne, and admiring the immaculate display of the CK watches and jewellery, but also a lucky person was going to win a Ck SS12 watch.

Before then, we were given a set of 8 questions to answer about the cK brand. The questions were both past and present and very thought provoking it was. 

A winner was announced - Prince Cassius. Who just beat me by half a mark. Congratulation Mr Cassius. 

It was a such pleasure to meet Francoise Do-Linh-Xuan (Vice President Marketing) of Ck- Calvin Klein. Francoise had just flown in from Switzerland for the Calvin Klein CK social media event. Gracing the event with her presence did not go amiss. 

The Tea Party event showcasing CK Fall/Winter 12
watches and jewelry event was very educative on the product knowledge quiz. The watches and jewelry pieces are a testament to the quality and High standard of the brand Calvin Klein.

I will therefore go without saying, the launch of the Calvin klien Fall/Winter12 watches and jewelry was a jolly good success. 


'Farlow The Connoisseur Of the British Heritage'
Country meets city chic is what CHASEBONDSTYLE would call it. The tweed coat, Jackets, waistcoats, trousers and the finest wool sweaters, hightop durable boots, loafers, were what I immersed myself in at the Farlow press event. 

It was a pleasure being at 9 Pall Mall - the Farlow - and glancing through the AW11/12 collection. Well, it is the pursuit of country living as one may see it.  The tweed has always been part of the british fashion trend for years now. And it is still going strong each season.

Scrutinizing The AW11/12 Farlow Shirt
And this season is no different. It has to be said that Farlow in years past - 1840 to be precise - has been supplying the country connoisseur to this present day. Farlow has always ensured to provide the best of active indoor and outdoor wear as well as quality accessories to go with it.

Let's not fall short of the sight that when it comes town dressing Farlow has it covered. 

There was an excitingly well received challenge or task at hand during the press event and that involved those present creating their own look using the Farlow AW11/12 pieces. The winner of this challenge was going to be the sole window dresser for 9 Pall Mall.

That was a fun task. Certainly took part and a photo shoot was in session once you had finished styling yourself.
Lord Of The Chasebond Manor

My look was obviously into country with a bit of couture chic thrown it. Think of the highlands meets  couture in the 21st century. Or the Lord of the Manor better still.

My favorite statement piece was the fur hat with feathers oozing out in the front. It shows that country style is transcending.

 Also worth checking out the Farlow - online store for a selected kit from the finest country brands as well as Farlow's own quality label for both men and women. 

The event organized by Octane PR was a success and many thanks to the Farlow staff who were of immense help in assisting us with where and what to find every piece.
