Gary Card

James Barnett (of Brand Barnett fame) and I happened across the Levis store in Regent street recently and saw this window/installation by Gary Card. It was a rather fun maze of polka dotted denim with the merchandise hidden in and around it. I had a great time. I am very keen on this idea of a sort of interactive display that moves from the window into the store.

Fiona Leahy

I'm currently interning at Fiona Leahy Studio where they design and make things for super cool events like the Elle Style Awards which we're working on at the moment. We spent 2 whole weeks folding origami invitations BY HAND. So just incase you got one, I hope you know they were hand crafted. And polished afterwards to get our fingerprints off (metallic paper turns out to be a nightmare). These are a few behind the scenes photos of us setting up the event. The first massive task was to cover the walls of a ballroom with metallic balloons. Enough balloons to fill the conference room next door. Everything else went along the same lines. More 'proper' photos to follow.

heals windows

"From Monday Jan 31st until Sunday Feb 6th students from UCl and Slade School of Fine Art will be in the windows of Heal's in Tottenham Court Road as part of their Artists in Residence 2011 project. They'll be creating work in their little window studios in front of our very eyes! One student will be making cameras out of household objects and then taking photos around the store and developing them right there!"

Jolly good eh?

I have finally caved in and got twitter.
For purely professional reasons that is.

Ruins of Detroit

This site is amazing. Parisian photographers Yves Marchand and Romain Meffre have been photographing ruined buildings in Detroit, which is fast collapsing in more ways than one. They say:

"Ruins are the visible symbols and landmarks of our societies
and their changes, small pieces of history in suspension.

The state of ruin is essentially a temporary situation that happens at
some point, the volatile result of change of era and the fall of empires.
This fragility, the time elapsed but even so running fast, lead us to watch them one very last time :
being dismayed, or admire, making us wondering about the permanence of things.

Photography appeared to us as a modest way
to keep a little bit of this ephemeral state."

The photographs are beautiful, and well worth checking out.


I've been working for Matt Wingfield again for the last few weeks putting more fun window vinyls in wagamama. I have now had the chance to sample everything on the menu and for your information the yasai katsu curry still comes out tops, with amai udon a close second. It's not worth deviating. Anyway, I've had a great time driving around southern England in a white van and eating noodles.
