Yesterday, whilst journeying through one of London’s busiest stations, I stopped by at The Church of London’s pop-up shop inside Old Street Tube Station. Creative agency The Church of London are the creators of the independent magazines Little White Lies and Huck Magazine and their pop-up shop was packed full of stylish prints, books and magazines. A perfect stop off for creative Christmas presents!
Open until 3rd December 2013
Fresh off the success of steakhouse Hawksmoor, culinary dream-team Will Beckett’s and Huw Gott’s latest venture, Foxlow was bound to turn heads. Based in Clerkenwell, the restaurant’s 1950s interior is exquisite and serving up a menu including slow-smoked ribs & charcoal grilled fish; it really is difficult to fault. But what really makes Foxlow stand out is its attention to detail. With wine being served in carafes, impeccable service and each month asking one of their industry friends to recommend their favourite bottles of wine to further compliment the wine list, a visit to Foxlow is an absolute must!
Isabella Blow: Fashion Galore is by far one of the most highly anticipated exhibitions to grace the fashion world in 2013. Showcasing one of the UK’s most impressive private fashion collections – with a particular soft-spot for Alexander McQueen & Philip Treacy – amongst a back catalogue of mementos from her fashion career, the exhibition is a beautifully considered tribute to Isabella’s life. Filled with anecdotes, from her tendency to clean Anna Wintour’s desk at Vogue with bottled Perrier water, to her love of wearing odd shoes; her flamboyancy & love of fashion shines throughout the exhibition. It’s a real must-see!
On show at the Hermès store on New Bond Street from now up until 7th December is the gorgeous Petit h pop-up styled by designer Faye Toogood. In a slightly surreal, atelier-like setting, featuring red, resin display cases, you can find all sorts of one-of-a-kind upcycled objects. From silk necklaces to a calfskin bench the pop-up cleverly gives the company’s rejected objects and off-cuts a new lease of life. Toogood has thought of everything, right down the cool leather aprons donned by the staff – a nod to the luxury brand’s legendary craftsman.
From November 14th – 18th, New York’s Park Avenue Armory played host to The Salon: Art & Design, the only fair in the United States to focus on art and design from the 19th century to the present.
