That veneer of kitsch stuck to the ballroom-like space, as the Observer walked into the launch party on Wednesday. An LED chandelier pulsed purple to every beat spun by model-DJ Chelsea Leyland. Bobbing her head in the elevated booth, she played London Grammar, and later in the night, Sail Away by Enya.
Beneath her, some goths danced uninhibitedly by the stage. A caterer handed out liquid nitrogen-tossed popcorn in paper cones. Over by the raised VIP section, models Kasia Struss and Hanne Gaby Odiele just lounged. Miss Odiele looked oh so casual in shorts, a Minnesota Vikings jersey, white sneakers and black socks.
