The WilliamVintage dinner was a pre-BAFTA event sponsored by jewellery brand Adler, hosted by William Banks-Blaney and Gillian Anderson, and held at Hansom Hall at the St. Pancras Renaissance hotel, King's Cross, London, on Friday 8 February 2013. The guests wore a stunning selection of Adler jewellery, which was a perfect complement to the vintage garments from WilliamVintage. For example, Gillian Anderson (shown in the title photo above, with Florence Knight, left, photo by Bircan Tulga) wore earrings in white gold set with Columbian emeralds and diamonds, with a 1970s black silk Halston from WilliamVintage.

The event highlighted the family tradition of Adler, a brand whose history runs back to Jacques Adler, born in Vienna, who opened his first workshop in Istanbul in 1886. At that time the city was the world capital of jewellery. Today, Adler still creates jewellery that combine Eastern opulence and Western design. Its pieces are sold exclusively in the brand's stores in Geneva, Gstaad, London and Hong Kong, with additional sales points in Tokyo, Abu Dhabi, Dubai and Doha. Jacques Adler's descendants continue the tradition: Carlo, Franklin and Leylâ Adler work at the company headquarters in Geneva, and Allen Adler, representing the fourth generation, is involved in finance and management.
