Why bother with words to communicate your emotions when you can use emoji? In alternative advent style, Commes des Garçons has created 24 emoji to see you through the festive season. Designer emoji are not new of course; Karl Lagerfeld, Donatella Versace, Moschino, and Chanel have all introduced the playful symbols into their designs, a true sign of the times.

Filip Pagowski, the Polish artist, designed the original PLAY symbol, that has become familiar to Commes des Garçons aficionados through the brand’s diffusion line, in production since 2002. The new symbols are available with Santa hats, cocktails, umbrellas, baseball bats… all the holiday bases are covered. How brilliant that emoji have come of age.

Alex Evans at the Foundry Gallery, Chelsea Quarter: LDF17

The astute reader will have noticed that SEEN loves art about London. There are many artists in this city who draw (pun intended) their inspiration from it, none more so than Alex Evans whose fractal renderings hint at the entropic nature of urban life and perhaps also our anxieties and isolation in the 21st century. His latest exhibition ‘Invisible Systems’ can be seen at the Foundry Gallery, tucked away off the King’s Road until 26th October.
