After hosting celebrations at Kemps House for nearly two decades, Alex Willcock is well-practised in the art of making guests feel welcome. So when T Magazine, The New York Times' style magazine recently visited his 17th-century home, nothing less than a festive feast would suffice.
With a warm fireplace blazing, multiples of soothing beeswax candles lit and moreish food, Alex Willcock and Felix Conran shared a pre-Christmas celebration with family, friends and Sophie Bew, T Magazine contributor and Editor of AnOther Magazine.
The intimate gathering included documentary filmmaker Emily Smith, Tawanda Chiweshe, multi-talented designer and studio director at Alaska Alaska, c/o Virgil Abloh, Brogan and Sebastian Cox, the wife-and-husband designers behind Sebastian Cox, Tony Niblock, co-founder of Plain English and jewellery designer Emma Milne-Watson.
Among the laughter, popped corks, and stunning dishes prepared by Felix, one charming detail, his sofa-shaped butter, drew such merriment T Magazine made it their headline.
Thank you to the entire team at T Magazine for such a wonderful article and spending the day with us.
