Squirrel Electric Garden Party

After hanging out with Mai Miyake-san, we wandered between galleries around Shoreditch and accidentally stumbled across an interesting collaboration between Tord Boontje and Tracey Neuls. Atsuko used to work for Tracey Neuls of course, and still wears her shoes with pride, and it was that instantly-identifiable, familiar neon orange that caught our eye from the street.

Tracey has produced a limited edition collection of leafy shoes with typically detailed Boontje-patterns. The shoes themselves looked great but also the display was really pretty. There was a set of bamboo-cane lamps displayed in the basement that had been deconstructed to their component parts which although quite a common idea lately, I thought the lamps were extremely clever in their design. I especially liked the water-bottle weighted base. Pop in if you find yourself on Charlotte Street. And if you are, also drop into Denham and drool over the beautiful tailored denim. Actually, maybe don’t drool…
