Wanderland, Hermes, London


If you haven't seen the Wanderland exhibition at the Saatchi Gallery then you are missing a fantastic treat of a show.  Hermes is one of those luxury brands who we feel strangely connected with.  OK we own nothing of the products but we have been hooked into their philosophy and brand presentation.  Wanderland takes you on the fantasy journey of the Flaneur (The Flaneur was originally a literary type of the 19th Century although we are all flaneurs if we walk the streets of London in order to experience it)  The exhibition consists of a series of 11 rooms in various media created by range of diverse artists; some of the rooms are included here.  The digital media is quite mind blowing from a storm in a tea cup to an eye in a bottle.  This is great fun to see if you have a minute and really worth the small effort it takes to go.  The exhibition is on until 2nd May so make sure you catch it before it goes on to Paris and then to Italy.

Cartier, Dubai


OK, nothing revolutionary here but just a nice window.  Lots of clouds in what are rather giant sized windows for such a small product, albeit a very sparkly one.

Lanvin, Dubai


In this ultra conservative culture we couldn't help but raise a smile at this installation at Lanvin.  Artists have long had a means to add sly messages into their work that are often quite hidden and we really hope that this brand were thinking in this way?  Who knows?  They probably wouldn't spill the beans anyway.  While of course this is a great installation does this remind you of some kind of bondage scene (above)?  Naturally we can only guess from our own (ahem) vague references of bondage you understand or maybe we are just hoping it is?  Probably the latter once you view the image below.

Joseph, London

During the month of April, Barbara Casasola is bringing her SS15 collection to Joseph on Brompton Road here in London.  Referencing Brazilian Architect Lina Bo Bardi's historic Casa de Vidro which is situated in the rain forest outskirts of Sao Paolo (do look this amazing place up as there are some really interesting links to Le Corbusier and his use of paloti at the Villa Savoye in Poissy, France).  The stunning abstract interior of Casa de Vidro with its concrete tiles, steel columns and raw linen curtains which looks onto the hidden tropical garden creates the context for the sensual aesthetic of this London based designers collection.



Diesel, Dubai


Diesel in the Dubai Mall are currently going down the land of the giants out sized prop route right now.  Huge snack bags, drinks cans and straws in a cartoon style communicate the fun that these guys are having.  Its hardly ever not Summer here (well maybe the odd rainy day once a year which completely freaks the locals out) so perfectly appropriate.  We haven't seen this in London so maybe it is a Dubai specific scheme, we honestly don't know, but great to see such amazingly huge windows being played with.

Bloomingdales, Dubai


A beautifully simple scheme rocks Bloomie's in Dubai right now.  The simple White background with the the use of Black lines in two and three dimensional form fills these enormous windows.  Thankfully the usual Mondrian-esque coloured bits which we find so over used are eliminated here creating a very focused scheme.  We just cant see how this translates in store however.

La Rinascente Duomo, Milan

 Well that made you look didn't it?  We've seen David Beckham in his pants and now Justin Bieber is flashing his 'bits' at the fabulous La Rinascente Duomo in Milan.  Full-sized window vinyls fill this space, all illuminated with White neon strip lights to celebrate Calvin Klein's launch of this famous underwear as worn by the pop star himself and Lara Stone.  Biceps, six pack, tattoos, pecs and well you know what.  We have seen this scheme in London although across such large windows it does have quite a significant impact.
