"China Design Now" at Liberty of London

Liberty is hosting an exibition in co-operation with the V&A on China design. It's really worth a visit, there is something for everyone - disciplines include fashion, photography, ceramics and art installation.

I personally adored the photography by Michael Wolf. It's hard not to notice the giant toy and portrait installation, however personally I found his smaller snapshots, dotted around the 4th floor space extremely beautiful and haunting. His combinatiion of colour and imagery is truly fascinating.

You can always pop in for a cup of their fantastic selection of Chinese teas, conveniently located in the exibition space - a sure way to give tired feet a rest from all that shopping! Try the hot chocolate green tea for something more unusual.

Prada Short Film

I found this prada film quite eery, the music is by CocoRosie and its not what really expected by a brand like Prada, but it is beautifully surreal.

Fascination with nature

Kieran and i went to the British Museum a few weekends ago, for some free exploration. We came across this small exhibition called the fascination with nature. Based on Chinese art and interpretation, it wasincredible to see the amount of skilled craftsmenship that went into the small pieces of work. Its free to see.

On our way to the nature exhibition, i went through a printmaking gallery which contain both classic and contemporary works. I found it just as good as the nature exhibition.

Chamilla i thought of you! x

In the link it does nt look like much, but if you have a few free sunday hours. It recommend the British museum.

Sebastien Tellier- Sexuality

Sebastien Tellier's new album simply screams sex in the way only the french do. It 's smooth,chic chilled electro goodness that im sure will be featured on a hotel costes album. I thought the album cover was brilliant! See what you think!
