McQ’s latest collection showcases black and rose-pink. Exquisite work by Sarah Burton features transparencies, embroideries, straight lines, pleats, fur and babydoll dresses in pink and flesh tones that bring us back to the decadence of French cabaret and the Thirties.

Three-quarter length coats with printed butterflies or clocks recall MCQ’s dark and rebellious side. The ultimate in elegance is mixed with an ironic mood linked to punk rock where black leather reigns supreme, softened by lapels or fur collar coats, transparencies, and fresh and romantic embroideries.

Frills, pleats, straight-cut pants and asymmetrical lines dominate in McQ’s newest collection; fit for a punk princess styled with a diplomacy and sophistication.

Jewellery such as silver chains and crowns add a young, defiant and sexy touch. The perfect accessories for a woman wearing any of Alexander McQueen’s autumn/winter 2016 collection designs.

Cocktails at the General Store

SEEN is tireless in her cocktail research, and very much enjoyed travelling to Highbury last week to try The General Store’s new summer cocktail menu and to check out the new interior. She was delighted to sample a Honey Mimosa, very sweet and fruity and just the ticket after a hot journey. It was, as its name suggests, a Mimosa with just a touch of honey.

Canaletto: A Drawing Workshop with Alexandra Blum

SEEN has long been an admirer of Alexandra Blum’s liminal and apocalyptic renderings of London’s urban spaces, in which the capital seems ever-changing. It is the artist’s job to capture not only space but the passage of time itself.

Love Hunt at the British Museum

SEEN had the pleasure (pun intended) of being invited to a ‘Love Hunt’ at the British Museum. The museum, founded in 1753, is committed to preserving art, culture and history, and has collected around 8 million objects. These artefacts come from every corner of the world, revealing a fragment of many significant moments in time, from Mesopotamia to the Vikings; from the Inuits to the Indians. So, when one embarks on a visit to the world famous British Museum, where does one start?
