Dotty about Yayoi Kusama

We're potty about dotty Yayoi Kusama Yayoi Kusama who started using dots almost 70 years ago. She has been prolific for decades creating sculptures, installations, novels, and films. In 2008 one of her works sold at Christie’s for $5.1 Million, setting a record for a living female artist.  Her bold, colourful, and brilliant creations can be seen at Tate Modern until 5th June.  Spot it if you can!

Just discovered a site we like on Tumblr - PretaPortre.  We've borrowed the image they've taken from the March issue of Vogue entitled Powder Play

Hermes takes Flight

Christophe Lemaire produced a luxe collection for Hermes which demonstrated the veracity of the adage "less is more".  Worn anywhere in the world - and the gaucho theme was based on the Hermes ethos of travel - these fabulously simple pieces could not fail but to turn heads .  Most items were worn with an understated simple starched white shirt, beautifully complementing the fluidity of the garments. Androgyny was strongly evident but these clothes were designed for women confident in their own sexuality.   Black, brown and rust made up the colour palette.  A truly luxurious collection - we want!
