Bright young things

My last morning in London I was walking by Selfridges with their "Bright young things" windows displaying works of 20 young designers (including Craig Lawrence), illustrators and artists till the end of February. Selfridges succeeded to create a concept extremely easy and nice to relate to - these bright young guys' life-size paper figures which can fully demonstrate how cool they all are even apart from their work. In fact Selfridges did well visualising not only their pretty youthful appearance, but also the period in designer's or artist's life when everything one creates ia inextricably linked with it's own blood flow and the vision of oneself.

    а мне ещё так жаль иногда что ты в старом блоге перестала писать.

  4. Да я сама удивилась! Но им приходится покупать шмотки Weekday и джинсы Cheap Monday исключительно в каких-то мультибрендах и концепт-сторах...

    Ну да, там был более личный и забавный стафф, но времени на все никак не хватает :)

  5. В жж к тому же наступило дикое болото в какой-то момент.

  6. хахаха хоть что-то придаёт оптимизма - чипмондей в ассортименте!
    про болото согласна

  7. Про голову оленя и пидорасов просто круто! А про колокола исчезнувшего Лондона красиво, конечно. Эх, как вспоминаю Лондон, сразу тепло внутри)
