09 Nov An Evening being Bond: Starr Luxury Cars
I want to be James Bond, not a bond girl. The danger, the violence, the toys. I want to be the one making the decisions, catching the thieves, beating the shit out of baddies, being the magnet of heat and electricity whom no one can resist. You don’t f*ck with Bond, Bond f*cks with you.
Your entrance and departure at a scene is everything. From the way you walk, dress, hold yourself. Life can be seen as a cinema. The world is your oyster, so they say.
So, let me know introduce myself, the name is Jessica, Jessica Patterson. I’m the CEO of a lifestyle PR agency www.jprmediagroup.com. We make reputations happen, we enhance image, we build people’s perception of you, your business and your service. Arriving in style to any event is a must for a VIP; whether you consider style a Range Rover 4 x 4, a helicopter, a smart car, or your Boris bike. But in the luxury industry, it is usually a vehicle a person of means can showcase to say, “I have arrived”.
Before my business trip to Dubai, I decided to attend a private shopping evening at Salvatore Ferragamo Sloane Street then go to a pop up showcase event for Luca Faloni in Notting Hill. I really must attend events for my business as my sector is all about relationships but with our oncoming 3-year anniversary celebration, events have been put on the back burner. Delighted to be venturing out of the office, I decided to ring my old friend and confidant Ikenna Ordor who owns leading luxury car service Starr Luxury Cars.
With the largest fleet of luxury cars to self-drive or chauffeur in the UK, Starr Luxury Cars has access to a plethora of sexy vehicles like the Audi R8 Spyder, Aston Martin DB9 Volante, Bentley Bentaya, Bugatti Veyron 16.4, BMW I8, Ferrari 458 Italia Spider, La Ferrari, Range Rovers, Lamborghinis and more.
I was picked up in a sleek black Mercedes with large comfy seats. I adorned all black clothing with some particularly bitchy black ankle boots by Fendi and a black and white motorcycle jacket by Boda Skins. I love the perfectly still quiet calm within a car where the driver doesn’t speak to you and there is absolutely zero music or noise. With constant streams of daily calls, emails, texts, Facebook messages, and WhatsApp’s – what I treasure is peace and quiet and that’s what I got. And I didn’t have to rate the driver nor vice versa.
I must admit, I am an avid Uber user and it has changed my life. With approximately 8 uber requests per day, I use it as part of my working life now. But with frequency, I budget with UberX. It’s not a luxury experience, it’s an easy experience. Starr Luxury Cars is not that. It’s luxury, it’s subtle, it’s service, it’s attention to detail and one feels looked after. I can be engrossed in my work emails or on my calls as much as I want without any impending judgement because I cannot stand small chat or my Uber driver listening to the football.
With Starr Luxury Cars, there’s no fuss and there’s no interruption. It’s a seamless way to travel within your business day.
What to say about the parties? Salvatore Ferragamo provided a wonderfully intimate evening with delightful canapes as per usual and Luca Faloni was a cool find with beautiful material and colours used on their delicate men’s shirts.
