All in a Good Cause: Pearl Lowe Creates Capes for Selfish Mother

seen-london

SEEN’s magpie eye was very taken with these fabulous sequinned capes for children. Our only question being: won’t the grown-ups be wearing them too?

The capes are the result of a fantastic new collaboration between charitable slogan tee brand Selfish Mother and Pearl Lowe in support of Tommy’s Charity, launching June 1st at The FMLY Store. Tommy’s fund research into pregnancy problems and provide pregnancy health information to parents. They believe it is unacceptable that one in four women lose a baby during pregnancy and birth. Clearly a good fit for Selfish Mother, who now have over two thousand writers giving the world the lowdown on real experiences of parenthood, and whose clothing line regularly donates to charity via their #GoodTees initiative.

The Petite Pearl Lowe x Selfish Mother mini-collection comprises a sequinned cape handmade in Somerset, available in 4 colourways: pink, green, red and turquoise. The cape is aimed at superhero boys and girls from age 2-12 years old, but like we say, the adults will doubtless be having a go. Perfect ahead of festival season summer fun, these capes are a must-have for the warmer months. As many Londoners head to the West Country for their holidays, do be sure to check out their shop.

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?
