First, however, Green is planning another fete. On May 19, 150 guests will mark the opening of the new Topshop store with a celebration at Zuma, a Japanese restaurant known for its glitzy clientele, sizzling open grills and hefty prices. Sitting at a table near the kitchen, Green quickly organizes the night, letting the tough restaurant manager know exactly who’s boss. “We’re going to have an artist perform, a female singer, like Adele, someone who’s just had a
No. 1 album,” he declares. “She’ll be over there in the back. I want everyone to sit down to eat, so there’s no need to take any tables away. There won’t be a seating plan, but we will have a roped-off VIP area. I’ll choose the menu.” And after a few gulps of green tea, he’s back in the
Mercedes, zooming toward Bhs to see how the strapless summer frocks are selling.
