Finally got to see the Grayson Perry exhibition at the British Museum yesterday and it didn't disappoint. Wonderful and clever way of making you view old artefacts as more relevant to today and appreciate such skill in the craftsmen and their techniques and methods of expression. A childlike point of view made it captivating and endearing. Traditional form and reminiscent artistry merged with Perry's doodles to represent today's world... worryingly accurate.

Reporting from our Paris showroom here are some photos of our set-up...
This time we are based downstairs from b Store alongside the amazing Berthold and Baartmans and Siegel. The collection has so far been received well as has the lookbook, shot by Eddie Jacob. We also have a new friend... Mr Marwood Hare who is keeping a close eye on the lace bow ties. Mr Hare is the creation of Alice Mary Lynch and we feel very lucky to have him join the team! Alice has some amazing projects happening this year so definitely keep up with her work here.

Each season there is an image that sticks around and becomes a reminder of what we wanted to achieve by the end of the season. A couple of years ago I photocopied some portraits from the book 'Asakusa Portraits' by Hiroh Kitai and folded them together. These two photocopies led to Marwood's third neckwear collection "Split Screen".
