Having a casual drink outside the Owl and Pussycat
That’s what Truman Brewery thought to the Olympics
The Commercial Tavern is a dimly lit den of prettiness and nostalgic cool. With masses of visual stimulation from the collage wallpaper, swirling glass pendants, vintage furniture, crystal chandeliers and soft blue paintwork; it calls to mind telling secrets and having a sly vodka in your teenage bestie’s bedroom. Bright and girly but with the promise of mischief on the horizon.
The only issue I would have with the Commercial Tavern is the music is crazy random. And not just random but LOUD and add that to the darkness of the ground floor bar, well being half blind looking for my mate makes for a disorienting experience. But it’s still my favourite. Love it.

Stealing a ring from the Olympics. Not sure this one would have passed the Olympics Sponsorship Committee. Doubt Pure Evil gives a shit
Olympic Park Observation Tower - Love it or loathe it?
Blogged: The Burberry Prorsum collection was amazing… They came with the classic trench in many forms, color blocking, & lots of texture pieces.

I loved the metallic trenches, laser cut trenches, cropped jackets, peplums, metallic shoes.. pretty much everything except the plastic bags!
I love the Boxpark concept. Give retailers shipping containers and let them go nuts. Monochrome, industrial and identical on the outside, step into a world of their choosing on the inside.
From the urban ears stripped back white décor and soft neon lighting giving the product maximum standout to the Nike concept store where it’s all about an immersive brand experience rather than stacks of product. Somewhere in the middle we’ve got the naughty French schoolgirl Playful Promises.
Soft lighting, soft textures and a range of lingerie and dresses which are all beautiful and girly with a serious dose of vamp. I think these two shots sum up the Playful Promises girl to a T. I’m so going back.
