Yesterday Miu Miu opened their three-day pop-up private members' club at Londons recently restored Café Royal and of course ELLE was first in the queue.
The women-only club, Miumiu-London, is open for just two more days, and offers Miu Miu members and their guests the opportunity to buy items from the resort and spring/summer 2013 collections before they are released in stores.

. This is my kind of private members club.
I start at the top, given this is where the shop is. The shoe
room is first, next door to the bag room, which leads to an even larger space housing next season's ready-to-wear. A Vivienne Westwood
climate change T-shirt [proceeds from the sale of which go to Cool Earth] with a silk, Prada
-print back sits alongside spring/summer 2013 denim duster coats and embellished evening dresses. I immediately hand over my credit card.
