Big and Bold: The Era of D.I.S.C.O.


The eighties are back, baby! Big, bejewelled pieces are taking over the catwalk and with its asymmetrical shapes and clashing patterns; the Shalimar collection from Evra Jewellery is leading the way for Spring 2017 with cuffs, rings, chokers and earrings, you can revel in a catalogue of colour this season. Evra always finds a great way to reinvent previous decades and bring them bang up to date. Designer Tamara Zantout spent her childhood in London, and uses her training as an architect to inform her jewellery designs.

Eminently wearable for day or night, this fun collection rejoices in the coming warmth of the Spring season, when we throw off the black we’ve been shrouded in all Winter and embrace the possibility of sunshine. Encouraged by Shalimar’s colours we should clash wherever we can. It was what the eighties were all about, after all.

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?
