Following the September 2016 runway show, for one week, Burberry transformed a former Foyle’s bookstore into a cafe and showroom to celebrate the launch of their new collection. The London show venue was opened to the public and made home to a different group of Britain’s finest makers each day, who could be seen practicing their craft. These ranged from sculpting and embroidery to caligraphy and miniature portraiture. Not only this, but there was the chance to see the collection up close.

We loved how interactive Makers House was, and it was so inspiring to see how the collection was brought to life. Even better was the joy of finishing off the experience with a coffee and some cake from the beautiful Thomas’s cafe cake table – and a trip into the studio photobooth before the line got too long!

Watch the Burberry Show on here via youtube which was hosted at Makers House – the music is out of this world.

SWITCH HOUSE

Tate Modern

I visited the Tate Modern’s new building, Switch House last weekend. It was only a flying visit where we did a quick overview of the new galleries, got a coffee at Albion and then onto brunch at the Mondrian down the road. I am definitley booking in to go back to see the Georgia O’Keefe exhibit that is currently on at the main gallery when I’m not preocupied with finding the best hangover cure possible – FYI the Mondrian’s breakfast burrito did the trick…

España

– Gran Canaria –

I had attempted to go on holiday to Portugal back in May, where it decided to torrential rain the entire week we were there. Came home three days early. Pale.
So last weekend, desperately seeking sun, we decided – perhaps in a slightly unstable, yet I like to think spontaneous mindset – to go to Spain for a long weekend. The Sheraton Salobre resort in Gran Canaria provided the perfect pink desert retreat to show off my favourite Marni sandals and get us sufficiently burnt in the process. We managed to snag a cabana on our last day which made leaving even more painfull and with the addition of a trip to the spa and fully stocked breakfast buffet, I wished I could have stayed longer.

Fashion

Filippa k

Completely transfixed by the Filippa K Spring Summer 2015 campaign – so elegantly simple and classic but I love the modern shapes. It’s the Scandinavian brand I’m massively coveting at the moment. Some of their beautiful pieces are currently available at their pop up in Fenwick, where I grabbed this catalogue and made many a mental note. So much to learn from the Swedes.

POP ART @ THE SAATCHI

I visited the Saatchi gallery on Friday to see their new Pop Art exhibit. It included works by artists such as Jeff Koons, Ai Weiwei, Tom Sachs and so many others. It wasn’t what you would expect from the a standard pop art exhibit – yes, think colourful and think graphic – but this exhibit brings together works by artists from China, the Former Soviet Union, Taiwan, the UK and the USA in a conversation about differing ideologies. It offers up a very cool mix of interesting works, with the sculpture (first image) by Chinese artist He An being my absolute favourite.

 Ironically, I went off afterwards and got a McDonald’s.

Wearing: Jumper from Topshop, Jeans from J.Crew and boots from Zara (old).
