At Zara’s new flagship

 Right across from Selfridges in London’s Oxford Street Zara has opened its new flagship, which it calls, rather grandly,Park House. And very impressive it is too. Glossy, airy, bright and a confident statement from the Inditex Group. This is Inditex’s 94th store in the UK and it still has a number of fascias that it hasn’t brought over from Spain. At the launch party I scarpered before the crowds (and Kate Moss) turned up, but there was just time to say hello to my ex-Emap colleague, Tim Danaher, the former editor of Retail Week, who now is a spinning supremo at Brunswick. (That’s the PR company, not the record label that used to release Jackie Wilson soul songs).

My outfit comprised Douglas jacket in Teviotex tweed, Viyella shirt, vintage tartan tie, Wolsey Fair Isle-style slipover, Gurteen moleskins and suede boots by Tricker’s. All very cosy on a chilly evening.
