• Robb Pruitt – Jimmy Choo

    We recently designed and produced an evening to celebrate Rob Pruitt’s collaboration with Jimmy Choo. Lots of fluoro, monochrome and degradé. We had a lot of fun embracing the aesthetic, from sending out paper panda balloon invitations (inspired by Pruitt’s Panda motif), to using Jimmy Choo Luggage tags as Placement…  AND we finally got to realise our long-time obsession and experimentation with degradé flowers – running from bright whites to deep burgundy, one of our favourites.

     

    The paper panda balloons used for invitations… we loved them so much they had to reappear for dinner.

  • Louis Vuitton & Kusama – The Whitney Museum, NY

    Last week we got to come to one of our favourite cities, New York. We were asked to produce and design Louis Vuitton & W Magazine’s dinner and celebration at the Whitney Museum to mark the launch of the incredible Louis Vuitton and Yayoi Kusama collaboration.

    We felt incredibly honoured to help realise an event that not only celebrated Kusama but also her return to New York – her favourite city and where she lived in the 70s, in what some might term her hey day.

    Kusama’s exhibition is currently at the Whitney. Fireflies on the Water is an experience not to be missed…

    table

    Inspired by Kusama’s use of mirror, reflectivity and love of red and by an early portrait of the artist surrounded by dahlias, we designed a dinner that, to this day, is my absolute favourite! A neon strip underlit runners containing thousands of dahlias in shades of red orange and pink, like botanical ‘go faster’ stripes stretching down each table.

    Menu

    The food was exquisite – a japanese inspired menu by chef Michael Anthony from the famed Gramercy Tavern.

    Jello

    We also got the chance to import some of our favourite things from the UK . The Broken Hearts DJ duo who outspotted themselves and Jellymongers supreme Bompas and Parr who created a wobbling sculptural jelly installation inspired by Kusama’s organic forms.

  • Green Tea Obsession

    I fulfilled a life-long ambition recently and went to Japan. There are so many things that I adore about Japan. The culture, the Kitsch, the food and of course my two favourite beverages Sake and green tea
    To really exercise my Green tea obsession I took myself to Uji in Kyoto, a green tea producing region. A green tea mecca where I ate , drank, licked and inhaled every form of green tea substance known to man. I just can’t wait to do it all over again…..

  • Midnight in Paris

    I recently had a dreamlike visit to paris. When I need a dose of inspiration and some old fashioned glamour all I need is a ticket to the most anticipated show (Marc Jacobs 10th anniversary at Louis Vuitton) and I’m there.

    Went to the Jean Paul Goude retrospective at Les Arts Décoratifs which was amazing. No words I write can do justice to his genius. Go to the show if you can and see a visionary at work. I could say the same for the Tim Burton show at Cinémathèque Française which I went to that night. Inspiring in so many ways . I especially loved the collections of doodled on napkins, newspapers and notebooks that were so compelling to see and looked beautiful framed

    The following night it was Christian Louboutins ” FEU” show at the crazy horse. I love the Crazy horse and I love Christian Louboutin so the combined force of the two had me positively reeling in excitement. The show is incredible. I can’t think of a better place to bring a date. It’s very seductive and extremely mesmerising. If you can get there I promise you it’s a hot night in Paris. Gorgeous show, Gorgeous shoes, Gorgeous girls. Perfect.

    The Grand Finale The Louis Vuitton show, exposition and after party. The anticipation was palpable and when the shrill sound of the train rang and the steam came out, the gasps at the LV steam train quickly turned into a round of applause. The first show I have ever been to where the set got a round of applause. Much deserved. This was my favourite and most breath taking show of all time, like being transported onto a platform , waiting for th emost opulent version of the Orient express. Later that night after the wonderful exposition Celebrating Louis Vuitton and Marc Jacobs at the Musée des Arts décoratifsanother must see in Paris, we partied the night away on the set of the show. Dancing in the train carriage was so much fun as was getting handed drinks in through the windows! Please Sir can I have another ticket to ride?

    Porters at Louis Vuitton, fabulous …

    Instant show inspiration on the journey home

    Love these Animal head Mannequins at the Exposition
