A number of you will have probably seen this exhibition already, some in Tokyo and the others over here in London. I have just managed to get in before the exhibition closes and I wasn't disappointed. Dieter Rams and his body of work for Braun and Vitsoe is exceptional and doesn't need introduction from me. Go and see for yourself, the colours, the shapes, THE PRODUCTS! If you can't get there then get the books!
This last week we have made a few changes to the store over at Spitalfields. It has always felt like we stopped working as we opened the door to the store. In reality we like to see how the space works before we make plans. Customer comments and recommendations shape what we do and has culminated in the developments to this store. We have added a new range of magazines and books from publishers - Nieves, Qompendium, Farewell, Gottlund Verlag, Lines & Shapes and these complement our compact selection of publications (Inventory, Moncole, Apartamento)
We have a new accessories section coming in about 4 weeks so there is a fair bit still to be done. The pictures show it as a Work in Progress so drop by and take a look for yourself.
When the weather decides that it doesn't want to deliver fresh snow overnight as it has done this weekend we will start to deliver our styles that are suitable for the weather. We are reckoning that March will signal a slight change in the weather, still a fresh wind in the British air but with clear bright skies.
The change in the season requires a new outerwear piece. Our showerproof canvas field jacket may be the jacket for this time. Layered over our Irwin Shawl collar cardigan (cotton version of AW09) and a chambray shirt and you might just be set. Leather trims and reinforcing details add some refined features to a weekend style. Crafted in Manchester it will be available in Navy and Olive (£tbc)
