Zaha Hadid x United Nude

Zaha Hadid x United Nude

In another life, I dreamt of being an architect. Sadly I sucked at physics, so somehow I ended up here instead, but my interest and passion for architecture always remained. I’ve always admired Zaha Hadid for her incredible designs, whether that’s buildings or bridges or furniture, so I was of course pretty excited to hear about her collaboration with Dutch shoe label United Nude (founded by Rem D. Koolhaas, an architect himself and nephew of the legendary Rem Koolhaas, another […]

Neon Words

Neon Words

So I have this big, empty, white wall. I sit and stare at it every single day when I’m working from my kitchen table and it just screams for something interesting to happen to it. I’ve considered photography or prints, but I’ve decided what would really look great is a neon artwork, with a word or a quote which could inspire me every day. The only problem is, I don’t think I could ever decide on what would be the […]

5 Minutes With… Supermarket Sarah

5 Minutes With… Supermarket Sarah

I first discovered Supermarket Sarah a couple of years ago when she created one of her extraordinary installations for a Tatty Devine event, and later for Selfridges. Now her work has been assembled in a book, WonderWalls, a guide to creating your own beautiful interiors and walls. To celebrate the launch, we talked to Sarah Bagner, the girl behind the wall. Hi there, who are you? I am a stylist, author, web store owner, interior designer and agent, event organiser and sometimes […]

Wednesday Wishlist: The High Street Design Edition

Wednesday Wishlist: The High Street Design Edition

Sometimes – not often, but sometimes – I prefer buying things for my home rather than for me, the only problem is, proper “design” tends to be very expensive. But there’s some great high street ranges out there that can help you get there for less. Big fashion brands like H&M, Zara and French Connection have all jumped on to the homeware bandwagon, whilst department stores like John Lewis and M&S have some great collaborations and affordable ranges out at […]

Introducing French Connection Home

Introducing French Connection Home

I’ve just celebrated my 4th year in my beloved home, my own little slice of London. Becoming a homeowner really changed the way I started thinking about “home” – I became very houseproud and always thinking of ways to improve it. Add to that the fact that I also work from home, which means I’m there 24/7, and improving it becomes a downright obsession. Sadly, a lot of my big plans cost a lot of money, and so they usually […]

Pentax K-01 by Marc Newson

Pentax K-01 by Marc Newson

As you probably know by now, I’m always partial to a good collaboration. I love it when 2 minds get together and bring their respective qualities together to create a great product. Well, I just got back from the launch of the new Pentax K-01 camera, designed by Marc Newson, and this collaboration is just that: Marc Newson, one of the world’s most influential product designers, put his own stamp on the latest digital camera with interchangeable lenses by Pentax.

Alex Loves Angel: SMUG

Alex Loves Angel: SMUG

It has been a long time since I’ve done something for my “Alex Loves Angel” section, my one-woman-challenge to put the amazing independent shops in my beloved Angel on the map. It’s not for lack of great shops in the area, I just got distracted. But, like all good things in my life these days, a ‘meeting’ on Twitter got me in touch with Lizzie Evans, the owner of Smug, one of my favourite quirky design boutiques ever – not […]

Antoine Peters for Quinze & Milan x Eastpak

As the first birthday of my blog is looming (only 2 WEEKS AWAY), I’ve been going through all my posts of the past year, reminding myself of the journey I’ve been on. When I started this, I had no idea what I was planning on doing. I had every intention of making this a fashion, design and art blog, my true passions, but then things sort of developed and turned this into a complete fashion blog. That doesn’t mean I’m […]

Desk Phone Dock

Desk Phone Dock

Oh the irony! For years we’ve tried to get rid of those pesky phone wires, which always seem to get tangled and are just a big old pain in the arse. Instead we’ve replaced them with mobile phones, and oh yes, the ultimate in telephone devices: the iPhone. So here’s the ironic part. Kee Utility, a company in Seoul has just launched the Desk Phone Dock, which turns your trusty iPhone right back into an old-fashioned telephone, handsets and wires […]

Chanel No. ?

Chanel No. ?

I always love it when someone takes a complete classic, mixes it up and creates something even better out of it. And that’s exactly what young Dutch product designer Pieke Bergmans did with the Chanel No. 5 perfume bottle. The bottle looks as though it’s been melted, almost molded into something new, but still very true to its original shape. A true little artwork! Wouldn’t it be amazing if Chanel made a limited edition range out of this? I’d give […]
