As the now infamous JLo song goes (kinda), I was fooled by the rocks that Phillip Stoner’s got, I’m still, I’m still, craving them alot. True to the song too is the story of the brand, first they had a little now they have a lot, but they certainly know where they came from (Bradford).
One of the ways that Phillip Stoner are working hard is with New and Social Media. A transactional website, backed up by a new Twitter feed and Facebook is putting premium jewellery on the Google map. I asked how sales of jewellery starting at £2,000.00 fared on the notoriously faster paced and lower priced world of etail, the answer: they don’t. Phillip Stoner introduced the new Italian brand TiSento into the online mix to bring the price point down to meet with the virtual customer piggy bank.
I went to a do the other day, a cocktail party held at Flannels to commemorate their flagship superstore on The Avenue in Manchester’s corporate quarter, Spinningfields.
I went for Riviera whilst ever other gent went for Mad Men in stuffy suits. Silly.
Went to a launch the other night. Was a rather excellent do. Mr Clarke opened his latest (and biggest) salon to a swam of paps, WAGS and Hollyoaks stars. Bonus.
I didn’t take my own photos because I was a little too busy uber-mingling to get my SLR out. Mega fail. However, I wore John Galliano (controversial) and TOPMAN Ltd.
