One of my very few vices is that I like to stop off for a cappuccino on my way into the office in the morning – actually my addiction is far gone enough to need this most mornings weekday or not. There are a few key venues in London where my morning coffee is mild enough, warm rather than hot, and served in a cup rather than a mug (I do make an exception at venues in Hyde Park as the view is so good plus the extra exercise.
As an accompaniment I never take more than a croissant at Ottolenghi. – ok served with their extraordinary jam and well, maybe a very occasional muffin – but never the items shown below which go against my imposed dietary rules yet just the sight of them cheers my day
I thought I would have to re-post this as Mr Gallagher seems to have enjoyed dinner at The Crown before his headline performanceat The Latitude Festival. No incidents were reported!
I have just rediscovered Arper on Camron PR’s fantastic website. Arper are producing the latest, brightest furniture designs with Italian brio and I cannot wait to inflict them on some unsuspecting client.
In there own words:- “Founded in Italy in 1989 by Luigi Feltrin, Arper has grown into a design focused furniture manufacturer that uses new materials and technologies. Working with leading international designers such as Jean-Marie Massaud, Simon Pengelly and James Irvineto, Arper have created a range of chairs, tables, sofas, stools and armchairs, that reflect the different cultural backgrounds of each designer while remaining true to the distinctive Arper style”
Went again on the last day to see Savage Beauty. At every level it was one of the most excitingly staged exhibitions. The discipline of McQueens work is a marvel, perfect cutting and tremendous sense of theater set with historical knowledge. Having the V&A membership card allowed us to flow to the front of the queue and have free entrance, so it is a card really worthwhile having! Photos were not allowed but the temptation to do so won the day!
Really happy with a wonderful set of photographs by Adrian Woolfson, now a well-known photographer, but who started off his working career in my office on the Kings Road these years ago. Do catch his site adrianwolfson.com and see the wide number of films and projects he has been working on. We are all really pleased with the results of the session and please check them up on our site!
