Our luxury loungewear offers a dose of pure escapism year-round, but for The Paradisea Collection campaign we knew we’d need an appropriately heavenly location (even if it was a little closer to home).
Having first opened in Camden 122 years ago, KOKO is home to an incredible music legacy, hosting everyone from Charlie Chaplin, Prince and Madonna to Lady Gaga, The Rolling Stones and Dua Lipa. Following a three-year restoration and redevelopment, the venue reopened in April 2022 complete with the introduction of The House of KOKO, a new members’ club backstage, sprawling across four beautiful floors all connected to the theatre.
Created by Founder and Creative Director Olly Bengough in collaboration with the design team behind Chiltern Firehouse, members are invited to slip backstage, and lose themselves among a maze of secret passageways and stunning spaces. Thoughtful references to the Grade II listed buildings’ rich cultural heritage can be seen everywhere in playful, thoughtful design details, and there are seemingly endless spaces to explore, including a glorious roof terrace restaurant, Penthouse studio, library, secret speakeasy, and Stage Kitchen restaurant. The Dome now inhabits a cathedral-like cocktail bar (with its own secret staircase to gods of the theatre), vinyl rooms reminiscent of a train carriage lie hidden behind a secret door, and a private dining room overlooks the theatre stage; it’s an immersive adventure like no other. The interiors, too – think pink marble, dark walnut, low lighting, and verdant greenery - call to mind the opulence and smoky splendour of a lost age.
