A methuselah (equivalent to 8 standard sized bottles) of the highly prized 1996 Dom Perignon Rosé Gold, was recently sold for £35,000 of HK$ 420,000 ( well..with the exchange rate now its more like $390,000) at the bar of of a top London hotel after a gala movie screening. It broke the record for the most expensive bottle of wine sold at a British bar. The buyer, thought to be a Russian billionaire, left a £10,625 tip in addition to the £4,375 service charge! Wow.
The wise and savvy buyers at net-a-porter.com have just brought in J.Crew, one of our favourite American high street brands. They have hand-picked the key items from the collection, all shiny new and ready to be bought! Although J. Crew does a great line of affordable bridesmaids dresses and even wedding gowns, its not on the net-a-porter site, you’ll have to go on jcrew.com and ask a friend in the U.S to forward it to you or visit their brand new dedicated wedding boutique on Madison Avenue in New York City. Happy Shopping!
Sadly, these dresses sold out within a day of launching on net-a-porter, hopefully they will re-order, I quite like the pink and beige one on the left.
In case you didn’t make it to the InterContinental Luxury Wedding Showcase that we organized for the hotel in March 2010, here are some photos of the day, courtesy of Dennis Mok, one of Hong Kong’s top (and nicest) wedding photographers! Stay tuned for our next Fair!
