The Bernard Buffet exhibition at Musee D'art Moderne was an amazing collection of works. As one critic claimed “he painted a lot”. This is evident in the exhibition which covers his works from post war thru to his death in 1998. His suicide must have been a devastating moment of personal torture. For a person so prolific to lose his talent and ability to Alzheimer’s must have been unthinkable. He left behind a body of work and a personal style that is defined from beginning to end. Inspirational.
A trip to Paris is never complete without a tour of le Marais to catch up on the latest street art. Today we witnessed the destruction of several Konny Stedding works by Council Cleaners. Within minutes these beautiful works were destroyed. I hate taggers, but paste ups that actually have some artistic merit add to the personality of a city. It’s such a shame that art, even in the capital of culture isn’t respected.
Today we visited the Philharmonic Theatre on the edge of Paris. This amazing building rises from the ground, a unique mix of organic and angular forms. The whole building is silver and reflective, so inspirational!

It's all in the silk
Our 15% Silk and 85% Modal fabrics have a super soft handle. The combination has both the highest breathability and thermal conductivity. It is an easy care fabric that is light in weight, but also has a great drape. Our Modal is a by product of plantation farmed Beech Trees, with a higher wicking property than cotton.

Shot at Giverny on a hot summer's day last September, this depicts the swaying reed by Monet's Garden and lily pond. The original abstract impressionist work was created by artist Phillip Ayers. The work is printed onto our 100 x 100 silk twill and 200 x 140 silk-modal and silk chiffon scarves. All our scarves are hand finished with hand rolled and stitched hems. This is part of the new collection that is featured at AW2017 Pure London and AW Paris Fashion week.

Marilyn Monroe: The Complete Last Sitting by Bert Stern was first published in 1982. The shoot itself was done 20 years earlier in 1962 just before the tragic death of Marilyn. Bert Stern is credited with change the landscape of fashion photography. He along with Richard Avedon, Mark Shaw, and Iving Penn pioneered this new format of advertising and fashion photography. I love the use of the silk chiffon scarf. The sheer silk seems to move and it creates a playfulness that wouldn't be there if the subject was just topless. #silk #silkscarf #silkartscarf #marilyn #bert_stern #silk_chiffon
Silk Twill with its distinctive diagonal weave has an elegant and traditional drape. The front face is ideal for printing and the technical back face has a silver-grey shimmer. The gloss effect enhances our designs and increases the vibrancy of the colours.
We use 14mm Twill which is the ideal trans-seasonal weight.
Paris here we come!
Next week we're heading back to Paris and London. We're excited to be showing the new collection at Pure London and in Paris. We're seeing 3 new sales agents in Paris and hop to meet some new contacts at Pure London.
