The music was blaring so loudly that even the sand seemed to be quivering at Tristan Capital’s raucous party on the beach in Cannes. The secretive property firm holds a less than secretive bash each year, its tickets highly coveted – and this year’s theme was Moulin Rouge in keeping with the French setting.
It wouldn’t be Moulin Rouge without a bit of dressing up, with guests given red feather bowers, black carnival masks and glow-in-the-dark face paint.
Nick Deacon of TIAA Henderson – which has just been given the green light for its £400m office scheme dubbed Gotham City for its design at 40 Leadenhall Street – was there chatting to Daniel Berger of Australian Super, the new kids on the block in London who bought a 25 per cent stake in the sprawling King’s Cross scheme last week.
Perhaps Deacon could suggest a Batman theme next year.
