Tall Cappuccino, London Fashion Week
On the first day of Fashion Week in London, I must have had some serious coffee cravings.
Well, why else would I have dressed as one?
Although I must admit to wearing this jumper at least a hundred times since getting it a couple of weeks ago!
It’s just too sumptuous to resist.
The softest cashmere, a wonderfully generous cut and just so beautiful in the golden light of Autumn.

My first big show of the week was by Hunter.
I got there early to watch the world arrive.
In no time fashionistas flooded the streets.
The show, held inside one of Royal Mail’s packaging warehouses, was festival themed.
A runway of mud and models emerging from a huge tent.
You can watch the entire show online here, in fact!
After the show we all strolled over to Kings Cross Station for the next show, and more diamond people-watching opportunities.
^ Doesn’t she look beautiful? What a gorgeous combination.
I ran into Estelle outside the next show, so we teamed up for the rest of the day.
Later, absolutely starving having spent the day stomping around London, we went in search of a very late lunch.
Thoughtfully provided by the new Italian spot in Marylebone, Bernardi’s.
The decor of cool Italian marble and squidgy leather seats make the perfect backdrop for the artwork they serve as food here.
The menu changes regularly, so I suppose we’ll just have to keep going back to try the new stuff!
We inspected the menus over cocktails and nibbles…
…before deciding on an all out feast!
The pizzettes are a must order, this is the gorgonzola & prosciutto version.
They’re mini and we all know there are no calories in mini things.
Burrata with beetroot.
Exceptional squid in garlic, parsley and tomato sauce.
But my favourite dish of all? The one I can’t keep away from?
The rainbow of crudo.
Raw, thinly sliced, unbelievably fresh fish creates what might just be the most beautiful plate in London.
The slow cooked pork collar with clams is an utter triumph.
As is the lemon sole on minestrone.
Thicker than a traditional minestrone, with ribbons of fresh pasta and diced fresh veggies. More of a sauce than a soup, and really rather inspiring.
We declined pudding, but in true Italian style, they brought some anyway!
Three scoops of ice-cream, which we happily polished off.
(I may have had more than my fair share of the coffee scoop, but we’ll put that down to my cappuccino cravings, ok?)
Near Marble Arch, Bernardi’s is well worth a trip. There’s a bar that livens up at night, but if you can get away for a long lunch, you should!
