SEEN at the catwalk for LFW16: Topshop Unique SS17

Topshop Unique presented its SS17 ‘September 2016’ show at the LFW Topshop Show Space on Sunday, 18th September. London’s fashion market stalls from the 1980’s were the inspiration for the collection.

Topshop Unique SS17 show had a real 80’s vibe that filled the atmosphere with optimism and energy. And the location was the perfect iconic London venue: the Spitalfields Market which was once again, like forty years ago, filled with market stalls selling truly amazing clothes, the same ones just presented in the catwalk. In fact, for the first time, a selection of garments was available to buy in a unique pop-up shop located right outside the venue, and online.

This collection, called simply ‘September 2016’, was full of reminiscences from the 80’s. But forget leopard and embrace again zebra prints in shirts, skirts, dresses… And be ready to wear, as the new colour, pink in all its shades: fuchsia, pale, neon, dusty, deep…

Models wore stunning looks combining floral print dresses with denim and leather oversized jackets, oversize bomber jackets with high waistline cigarette trousers, black vinyl pencil skirts with fuchsia pink stilettos…

As the Sun shines on Earth, so MO-GA’s gender-fluid designs grace the bodies of everyone, rejoicing in ambiguity. Multiple sleeves and feathers recall the animal kingdom in all its glorious diversity; it’s a new aesthetic.

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?
