So here it is, Big Ben from the Palace.
The sleeping business men were in Green Park at 8.25am. Don't know what that's about. Had they been out all night and slept in the park? Or did they travel in early - in time to have an extra sleep before going into the office? Very odd.
Other odd things were going on in Bond Street and Bruton Street. End of summer sales (though children in England only broke up for the summer holidays yesterday) at Diane von Furstenberg and Jigsaw, but new season clothes in at Stella McCartney (she's still making beautiful clothes), the very traditional Holland & Holland (where you might find a new season pair of woolly socks, tweed hunting jacket or a deerstalker).
Matthew Williamson is giving lots of floaty party dresses. Not sure what his window theme is about. Is it a circus? But aren't those oversized Christmas baubles? I think it's supposed to be a human cannon, but with extra disco cannon balls. Huh?
As ever, Miu Miu does its own thing. It has just the thing for the woman who wants a little black dress but fears rain and just won't carry an umbrella. I'm really hoping that dress is lined. The weather this weekend is threatening to be HOT.
