To celebrate the collaboration between the wonderful fashion designer, Nicola Farhi and renowned paper sculptor Su Blackwell, Farhi hosted a party at her flagship store on Bond Street, London. A lovely evening of champagne, canapés (deserts were delectable), fashion, art and music.
This Christmas you must take a peek at the windows of the Nicole Farhi store on Bond Street! They came alive at the launch on Tuesday 23rd November and tell a Christmas story by Stephen Doig of how Blackwell met Farhi. The story called ‘When Lady Hare Met Su Blackwell’. Also another great excuse to hit the best shopping street in London.
Blackwell is a known for crafting intricate sculptures from the pages of vintage books and demonstrates her work with large scale depictions in the windows of the store. After admiring Blackwell’s work in window displays for Cartier and campaigns for Kenzo, Farhi felt compelled to work with her. Farhi said of Blackwell’s art: ‘I loved the delicate approach to her art. I thought it was beautiful, whimsical and poetic.’
The story will adorn selected Nicole Farhi store windows around London with exclusive events on the following dates: 2nd December in Covent Garden and the 4th December in South Kensington and Hampstead, thus you have no excuse.
