The Luxuria Lifestyle List for November
November 11, 2016
From drinking champagne out of a designer slipper, to a dazzling jewellery exhibition… From pizzas created by a host of well known chefs in aid of charity, to the stunning Power of Portraits show, here’s your London must-visits for November.
Rupert Sanderson’s Perrier Jouet Champagne Slipper at 34 Mayfair
When the day just calls for a glass of champagne, look no further than 34 Mayfair where every bottle of Perrier-Jouët Belle Epoque Rosé ordered, will be served with The Rupert Sanderson Champagne Slipper! Inspired by 34 Mayfair’s art deco theme, and the Chrysler Building in Manhattan, the champagne flute is a detachable heel of the intricately designed glass and brass slipper which makes for a wonderful experience, following on from the success of Sanderson’s Kate Moss coupe last year.
There’s also a ready-to-wear champagne pump available to buy in-store, along with a limited number of The Rupert Sanderson Champagne Slipper on sale at £5000. Each one will come complete with 6 Champagne flutes and a bottle Perrier-Jouët Belle Epoque Rosé.
Power of Portraits
Society hostess and entrepreneur Barbara Brudenell-Bruce (founder of iconic nightclub Fabric) has joined forces with curator Cosmo Barran to host the Power of Portraits at the Zari Gallery in Newman Street.
With the work of two of London’s most talented modern artists on show, Eleanor Johnson and Kris Cieslak’s portraiture collections will be showcased to a cool crowd on November 23rd, with drinks courtesy of brand new gin brand House of Elrick.
While Eleanor’s work ‘weaves the effects of time into her portraits, looking at the transience of life, and death’, Kris has developed a unique painting style called ‘stripism’.

Pizzicotto the delicious pizzeria on Kensington High Street has teamed up with Action Against Hunger throughout November for The Gourmet Pizza Challenge 2016.
Seven of the UK’s best chefs will go head-to-head against Pizzicotto’s pizza experts, creating their own unique pizza recipes to raid money for the global humanitarian organisation.
Even better, it’s the public who decide who wins! Vivek Singh of The Cinnamon Club has created the ‘Bollyflower Cheese’, but hot on its heels is Jun Tanaka’s Iberico Ham, Burrata, Sobrasada and Manchego Pizza, with creations also on the menu from Pascal Aussignac (Club Gascon), Adam Handling (The Frog E1) and Robin Gill (The Manor, The Dairy, Paradise Garage and Counter Culture) to name but a few!
Whichever pizza sells the most by the end of the month will be crowned champion with the winning pizza remaining on the menu. 50% of the proceeds will go to Action Against Hunger – a charity which aims to save the lives of malnourished children.
