Gwyneth Leech for Anthropologie: 1001 coffee cup stories

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

This is such a lovely idea from Anthropologie. I saw it on Instagram and I’m miffed I didn’t make it down during the London Design Festival while it was happening in London…

Louis Vuitton meets Eine and a Shoreditch street art tour

Eine-Louis-Vuitton-scarf

When I posted about the Eine X Louis Vuitton scarf a couple of weeks ago, it was really hard to find out any info. That’s because it hadn’t been launched yet. I’d seen a snippet in Red magazine and that was pretty much all. In fact, the scarf launches today, exclusively at Selfridges, Oxford Street for one week, sold in the new ground floor Louis Vuitton accessories pop-up. (Not to be confused with the pop-up on the second floor.) Continue reading

Retail report: The art of Chanel

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

CHANEL-New-Bond-Street

The new Chanel London flagship opens in New Bond Street tomorrow and at 12,600 square feet it’s a vast improvement on its Old Bond Street predecessor. In terms of trends, retail and otherwise, it weaves in quite a few. There’s the trend for ‘at home’ styling; featuring grand mantlepieces, ample couches and coffee tables (for the wealthy BRIC customers to consider their purchases I suspect, not for bored husbands and kids).

Last chance for Lichtenstein

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

lichtenstein-masterpiece1

Yikes, where is the time going? This week is the last chance to see Lichtenstein – A Retrospective at Tate Modern and I managed to get my eye in fashionably late last week. If you love his classic dot artworks, this is a chance to see them in huge scale which is really not to be missed. Most people are familiar with the War and Romance era, the comic-book style ‘WHAMM!’s and melodramatic close-ups of women in distress. Continue reading

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

“Haring was very keen on Paris, he came often on the Concorde just to go dancing on Saturday and go back on Monday…”

Kurt Schwitters: pop art pioneer

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

Creating beauty from urban detritus. Robert Rauschenberg did it, Peter Blake did it, Eduardo Paolozzi did it, but well before them, Kurt Schwitters built his deliciously layered collage art from found materials. He even invented a name for it – ‘Merz’ – which described his equal opportunities approach to creativity, in which all artists materials and techniques had the same value. Continue reading

Tracey Emin’s love letter to New York

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

What an amazing digital art exhibition! I’ve just discovered Tracey Emin’s ‘I Promise To Love You’ display, which runs in New York’s Times Square throughout February. A display of her neon artworks on Times Square’s billboards, it’s part of the “Midnight Moment”, a presentation of the Times Square Advertising Coalition (TSAC) and Times Square Arts.

Juergen Teller at the ICA plus some other 2013 exhibitions to diarise

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

Opening today at the ICA is Juergen Teller’s ‘Woo’ exhibition. I’m desperate to see it, in particular his landscapes that I’ve only recently discovered. Here’s a clip I found (above) of him shooting Helena Bonham Carter with his two Contaxes. And here’s another one (below) of him shooting Kate Moss. (Venetia Scott makes an appearance too)… Continue reading

Menswear focus: stylish Londoners get suited and booted at Burberry, Alexander McQueen and Selfridges

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

I literally can’t keep up with all the menswear retail goings-on in London this autumn. Just opened in Knightsbridge is another shiny new Burberry store (above), this time focussed on menswear. Craftsmanship and technology are given equal attention, with the store itself built by British stonemasons, carpenters, cabinet makers etc and over 50 speakers and 100 screens installed to engage the customer with digital experiential content.
