I have never really done Fashion Week, so when I received an invite to join Laplandia Vodka in the FROW I couldn’t resist!
The show we attended was designed by 77 year old Zandra Rhodes, a woman with an incredible bold, bright and inventive sense of style. Her shocking pink bob, black and green eyeliner and colourful statement pieces are attribute to her eccentric personality. Zandra has dressed everyone from celebs like Freddie Mercury, to royalty like Princess Diana.
I met Saisha, the UK Partner of Laplandia Vodka, completely by coincidence in a Mayfair restaurant a few months back. She and her team were celebrating the launch of the brand in the Virgin Atlantic Clubhouse-and I mean really celebrating!
Espresso martinis basically on tap and the most delicious colourful flavoured vodka selection you could imagine. Pineapple, coconut, lemon, açai and more traditional Scandinavian flavours like Lingonberry and Cloudberry … simple ingredients so that the flavours can really sing! I don’t normally enjoy flavoured vodka, however this one was truly distinct and delicious!
The bottle is adorned with 24K gold which is true testament to the purity, neutrality and quality of this product. Did you know tha the name ‘vodka’ is derived from the Russian word ‘voda’, which means water. Laplandia Vodka sources its water from Lake Hirsijärvi, one of the cleanest soures of fresh water on earth.
If you live in London zones 1 and 2 you can order Laplandia Vodka to your doorstep from Bevy.co (handy for those house parties) or Amazon.co.uk! Otherwise, keep an eye out on the drinks menu when you are at Nobu or the Palm Beach Casino in Mayfair.
It was an incredible fun, yet exhausting evening-I think this picture captures the end of the night pretty well! Good night Zandra!
