Every time I travel out east, usually en route to my godfather in the Isle of Dogs, this church intrigues me. I’ve never seen it open or got to go inside, but hopefully these photos (top one by @miloliren, second by @clau500) shows why.
St Paul’s Bow Common, built 1958-1960
resplendent in British Vogue, April 2018. I liked this set of shots better than the ones where she was shown with orchids behind her ear and “exotic” jewellery on.
Excuse the poor quality of these photos, but I literally snapped them directly from my copy of Elle Deco. Loving the wild wallpaper, jade green hall, mix of rattan and willow-weave textures in the furniture and just the simple yet bold look of this home.
Love the masculine/feminine play of this Edward Steichen shot from 1927. This was the equivalent of a sportswear article back in the day…
Still loving these colours, patterns, mixes from the Evening Standard feature of Martina Mondadori recently.
A taster for the Royal Academy’s exhibition this spring on Charles I and his art collection, where I’ll be hoping for more Van Dykes like this one. Thank you Becca for flagging it up to me.
Loving this jewellery by Charlotte Chesnais that seems to arabesque round the wearer.
The iconic image for a Madame Gres dress would have to be one of her white, neoclassically-draped numbers, though in fact she made them in both deep teal and scarlet red as well. This is a halfway house; still in white but in a style hinting at a sari.
Liking this range from Hades wool, which reminds me a lot of Tessa Perlow’s work.
