London memo: TASAKI to Bond Street

Melanie Georgacopoulos for M/G TASAKI

I missed the memo that TASAKI, the pearl specialist has brought Prabal Garung on board as creative director for its TASAKI Atelier line.

I really love the modern statement aesthetic of this brand; Melanie Georgacopoulos also does a fantastic job with her M/G TASAKI line (above). We’ll be able to see it for ourselves when the jeweller opens its first European flagship in New Bond Street this summer.

Bond Street is undergoing a major reinvention this year with hotels springing up to accommodate the influx of visitors that the new Crossrail will enable. If you work in the West End, you’ll have experienced the huge disruption from Hanover Square to Davies Street as they enlarge Bond Street Station and put in new ticket halls. That work is expected to be completed this year – hopefully.

Next up: the pedestrianisation of Oxford Street – gulp!
