Thursday afternoon was special. With British punctuality, Stella McCartney crossed the threshold of Santa Eulalia for tea with a small group of clients of our house. The appointment was at the cafe on the second floor, where there was no shortage of Belvedere cocktails that she likes so much.
The daughter of the famous former Beatle was funny, easy going, patient and flirty, dressed in a jumpsuit in spring colours that betrayed her keen eye for fashion.
We had a Mariage Frères tea together (except for those preferring a glass of Veuve Clicquot), but not before decorating the house with silver balloons spelling the name of the designer. Her looks were hanging on all out racks as an artwork, and the photo flashes gave no respite. But we have a good excuse: It’s not every day that one has a tea with one of the great fashion designers.
Luis Sans and Sandra Domínguez showed an interested Stella around Santa Eulalia and finally ended up in our tailoring section where she was fascinated with all the fabrics.
