Darkroom in London is one of my favorite stores in the city and they always do a phenomenal job with their store display. Approaching their store fit-outs as complete installed environments, this “So Sottsass” Memphis-inspired interior they just launched for the London Design Festival is an absolute knock-out.

These are some screengrabs I took from a great short feature Wallpaper put together for the opening of Sou Fujimoto’s Serpentine Gallery Pavilion. Some of the forms and his approach to the garden “folly” certainly resonate with my own recent approaches to the garden and the grid.

East London Printmakers. Run by their own group of keyholders, all profits rolled back into keeping their awesome shop running. Super nice group of people to boot!

Sketch is absolutely worth a visit when in London. Martin Creed’s installation in the Gallery Restaurant is unbelievable. We didn’t want a whole sit-down affair, so popped into The Parlour for high tea one afternoon.

Brixton Market is amazing. I walked over there every day for lunch during my volunteering stint at London Printworks Trust. They have every kind of food and it’s in a beautiful covered arcade so unpredictable London weather be damned!

Forest was right near the Black Hill CSM campus - the location for my Set Design class earlier in the month. I went in to their lovely store during the week, it is full of beautiful Scandinavian things.

Martino Gamper, Total Trattoria. In 2008, instead of having some dry presentation of his latest designs, Gamper opened a trattoria in the Aram Gallery in London. He designed EVERYTHING. All the chairs, tables, candle-holders, light fixtures, coasters, glasses - even the kitchen! The 30 guests were then invited to dine in this wonderful space; sharing a meal and toasting to Martino’s talent.

I’m that person who gets their film developed a year after it’s been shot. Here are a few of the greatest hits from my little disposable camera that travelled with me around Europe.

Borough Market is such a great spot. When I headed there with my parents we ate upstairs at Roast right by the windows looking down at shoppers and lunchtime-drinkers in the neighboring streets.

LONDON FASHION WEEK

Hate to say it, but there was a lot more that popped out to me from London Fashion week than did in New York. Blasphemy I know, but see for yourself!

Christopher Kane Fall 2009 RTW
With the intention of looking at some shots from the recent New York Fashion Week, I actually found myself drawn to designs coming from London fashion week instead. With a couple of exceptions, NY was very dark; blacks and grays an it started to get a little monotonous.
Christopher Kane’s designs, particularly the geometric graphics were a stand-out for me from London.
