London Nights (Part 3)

November 20, 2014

Experience London from its glamorous side, with satirical performances, 1930s charm and some of the city's best cocktails.

 

See – Rush to see one of the most talked about West End plays, King Charles III at the small but perfectly formed Wyndham’s Theatre, just off Leicester Square. This satirical outlook of the future monarchy can’t help to amuse but also leaves an undeniable bitter after-taste, with a surprising plot twist.  www.kingcharlesIII.com

Read – Follow governess Miss Pettigrew through her accidental encounter with glamorous night-club singer Miss LaFosse, resulting in a day of unusual incidents and curious conversations. "The sheer fun, the light-hearedness in this wonderful 1938 book feels closer to a Fred Astair film than anything else." Henrietta Twycross-Martin www.persephonebooks.com 

Eat –  Visit one of London’s favourite steak houses. Prime cuts of matured beef and other British classics as well as a list of the most amazing cocktails, all served under the atmospheric arches of an old brewery, make for an unforgettable night out.  www.thehawksmoor.com

London Nights (Part 2)

November 12, 2014

London Nights (Part 2) takes us on a more serene journey through North London. Filled with city lights, stars, fairy tales and a little bit of Parisian chic.

London Nights 2

See – Wait for the sun to set, jump on the tube and get off at Chalk Farm station. Walk up to Primrose Hill village, past its pretty Victorian houses, cafés and boutiques, then wander up Primrose Hill, settle down on one of the old benches and enjoy a magical view of London’s skyline – all lit up and ready to be admired. Best enjoyed at Christmas time, with good company and a thermos of mulled wine.   

 

Read – An obvious choice for this week's London Nights, we just couldn't resist sneaking in Antoine de Saint-Exupéry's classic children's favourite. The story of the Little Prince will kindle your childhood imagination, put a smile on your face and leave you in awe of the amount of surreal creativity. – “And now here is my secret, a very simple secret: It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye.” – Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, The Little Prince  - www.thelittleprince.com 

 

Eat – Hidden away, half way down Baker Street sits Galvin Bistrot de Luxe, the more intimate sister restaurant of Galvin at Windows. With an authentic air of Parisian chic, Galvin boasts a menu of French dishes, from steak tartare and duck confit to soufflés and tarte tatin. All this in addition to a great wine list, friendly waiters in black waistcoats and the most beautiful atmosphere.  - www.galvinrestaurants.com

London Nights (Part 1)

November 6, 2014

Over the next few weeks we will take you on a cultural, literary and culinary journey through London. We will introduce you to some of our favourite things to see, books to read and places to eat – each one different but all equally magical in the run up to the festive season.

London Nights (Part 1) is for lovers of Victorian bohemia, eerie romance and the mysteries of historic London.


London Nights

See - Travel to the squares of Lincoln’s Inn and see the Sir John Soane’s museum – the eccentric house-museum of the great neo-classical architect Sir John Soane. The museum holds a vast collection ranging from antiquities to architectural drawings and hasn’t been changed since 1837. Visit during one of the museum’s candlelit evenings for a mystical experience. www.soane.org


Read
- Spend the cold winter evenings immersed in Erin Morgenstern’s The Night Circus. A book that is subtly paranormal and never-endingly magical. – “The circus arrives without warning. No announcements precede it. It is simply there, when yesterday it was not. The black sign, painted in white letters that hangs upon the gates, reads: Opens at Nightfall, Closes at Dawn. Le Cirque des Rêves, The Circus of Dreams. Now the circus is open. Now you may enter.” www.thenightcircus.com


Eat –
Venture down a Marylebone side street to find 28˚-50˚, Icelandic chef Aggi Sverrisson’s restaurant and wine bar. It’s cosy, intimate, and offers a great selection of delicious and unusual wines – we like the Austrian reds. The menu comprises of simple charcuterie platters, French bistro style food and grilled meats, cooked in a Mayan clay oven. Truly special, in the simplest possible way. www.2850.co.uk

MiH JEANS AND LIBERTY

September 4, 2012

 
 
For Vogue's Fashion's Night Out 2012 we are over-the-moon-excited to be a part of Liberty London's Fashion Fun Fair. We will be 'Seeing Stripes' (you'll have to visit to see why) and giving three lucky people the chance to win an entire MiH outfit by finding three giant gold doves hidden around the Liberty store (what's better than a fashion treasure hunt, really?). You can follow us on twitter for clues (@mihjeans) or have a chat with the MiH girls in Liberty who might give some hints if you ask very, very nicely.
 
We're going to be alongside some good company too.. Jonathan Saunders will be having a live photo booth competition, Roksanda Ilincic will be signing sketches and model Jade Parfitt will be giving styling advice, to name but three. See you there!

Summer Loving

January 17, 2012

 

As we drink copious cups of tea and sit as close as physically possible to the radiator on this cold, cold day, this bright & breezy behind-the-scenes film of our Spring-Summer 2012 Collection look book shoot is exactly what we need. Ruby Aldridge frolics in the West Sussex countryside, running in fields, showing us her (genuine) guitar skills, climbing walls and playing on the swings. Oh how we wish we were there right now.
