Very.co.uk also attended the party and grabbed Mischa to ask about fashion, her comeback and what she plans to do next.
QS: You’re looking amazing right now, what’s your secret?
MISCHA: “I feel happy when it’s sunny so I dress to reflect that. It’s simple. Everyone needs some items in their wardrobe that make them feel cheerful.
For me, that’s bright colours and maxi skirts and maxi dresses, but I know some of my friends love skinny jeans because they make their legs look amazing.
My secret is shopping around until I find something that I know looks good and then trusting my instincts and buying it. Easy!”
QS: Do you have any advice about how to accessorise an outfit?
MISCHA: “My top tip is to have a Mischa Barton handbag.
“No seriously, I’d say less is more with jewellery. It’s better to have one stunning necklace or a few bangles than both with earrings. It just means people notice what you have. Otherwise people can hear you when you arrive if you have too much jewellery on and that’s not cool.”
QS: Tell us more about your handbags, what has been your inspiration?
MISCHA: “I always loved handbags but I found it difficult to find ones with lots of pockets. I was constantly losing things because I was shoving them into my handbag and it became a black hole. So even my clutch bags have pockets, which makes them so practical.”
QS: What are your favourite bags from the collection?
MISCHA: “At night-time, I’ll take out a clutch. For day, I love big bags – with pockets – the Mischa Barton black tote bag is regularly used as it goes with everything.”
QS: What can we expect to see in your handbag range next season?
MISCHA: “I’m heading to China in a few weeks to oversee the next collection. I’m very hands on with the designs and quality control.
“I’m hoping to bring out some designer-looking handbags, some with bow details and charms and some big and simple. But the key thing is they’ll look expensive but they’ll all be under £100.”
