Who was there?

Kiefer Sutherland (below) was in town filming filming for his forthcoming mini-series 24: Live Another Day and chatting with Sascha Bailey. “I love being in London,” he said “because it has everything; the old, the new, the cool the quirky- it’s a great place to work."

Photographer Rankin and his model wife Tuuli also turned out to their old friend Mr. Hudson. Rankin  has shot three music videos for him with the most recent hit Real And True with Miley Cyrus and Future.

 Fashion guests included Patrick Grant, Beatrix Ong and Olivia Inge toasting cocktails to  Mr.Hudson’s music – speaking of which….  

 Step Into The Shadows is…

A largely solo but semi-collaborative work featuring a collective called  ‘London characters’, notably Idris Elba and Giggs. Hudson and Elba together penned the album’s title track and produced vocals for Idris on Pull The Trigger.

Hudson’s musical influences spanned an iconic range of artists from David Bowie to Frank Sinatra  and Ryuchi Sakamoto. Cinema was also influential: “Normally music inspires my music, but this time it was visuals.”



Smirnoff led the bar with its Apple Bite Gold and Moscow Mules plus the “Shadow” signature cocktail created for Mr Hudson taking the cue from his favourite flavours and unique style.
