London: Highlights

Ι’ve already talked you about the Alexander McQueen exhibition and the afternoon tea experience at Sketch, but my recent trip to London had more highlights:
The Tate Modern permanent collection and the room-scale artwork “Making Traces” by mark Rothko.
The “39 Steps” play that I watched at Criterion Theater.
The dinner at Wolseley, the art-deco glamorous cafe-restaurant at Mayfair.
The cocktails at Jin Juu.
The Fortnum & Mason pistachio & clotted cream cookies.
The flowers shops.

Sketch London

One of the highlights of my recent trip to London was an afternoon tea at Sketch restaurant, a two-hour delight for the eyes and mouth. As you enter Sketch the Glade room with the bamboo furniture and the wallpaper is really something
but then you enter the hall where the tea is being served, the Gallery, the divine pink room designed by India Mahdavi who set the ideal backdrop for David Shrigley’s artwork all around.
A glass of fine champagne, rosebud infusion tea and a selection of gourmet sandwiches and pastries all served in a pink room -what else could possibly a girl ask for.

Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty

want to empower women. I want people to be afraid of the women I dress”.

I spent last weekend in London for the exhibition dedicated to the long gone talent of Alexander McQueen in Victoria & Albert Museum, an emotional trip down to the brilliance and inner world of a designer who cannot be compared to anyone else.
Among iconic pieces of his work from the 90s to “Plato’s Atlantis”, his last complete collection before his death, there is the hologram of Kate Moss included from his Fall/Winter 2006 fashion show that brings tears to my eyes every single time.

I got myself this H&M knitted top and midi skirt the other day and a couple of hours later I went for some made-to-order icecream at Magic Pleasure Store and THIS happened. When an outfit subconsciously overwhelms you so much
that you match your icecream with it. So yeah, this happened, and that’s me making a fuss out of it cause I love those stupid little details you know.
