Peter Jensen has collaborated with Tim Walker to create a unique installation for his Autumn/Winter 09 collection, to be showcased at Dover Street Market. The installation was inspired by Peter Jensen's journey to Greenland, where he travelled to carry out research for his collection.
Jensen's capsule range, consisting of beaded knitwear, panelled woollen dresses and faux-fur legginns, is exclusive to Dover Street Market and will be placed within the installation among the 'army of penguins'.
"Working with my friends at Dover Street Market, and with Tim has been a fantastic opportunity to bring creativity and commerce together in an interesting and unique way."
Since my nan taught me how to knit (a while back now!) I hadn't really put my new craft to use. So, I decided to knit a few squares and sew a patchwork pillow out some old fabrics I had lying around. Inner cushion £1 from Wilkos, you can't go wrong.
I was at Bestival, Isle of Wight at the weekend and was lucky enough to be front row (hardcore fan) at the Fleet Foxes set on the main stage. I loved it. Their music gives me a warm feeling like no other music, Fleet Foxes are like a Sunday afternoon, an unwinding ambience of soft harmonistic vocals and sounds. It makes me feel like drinking a mug of hot chocolate and unwind in front of wood fire, wrapped in a woollen blanket.
Their video for my favourite song Mykonos is an interesting inspiring piece of animation from a company called Grandchildren. It's a simple collaboration of paper and music forming an animated story. Geometric shapes of pallid colours imitating creatures within a forest and other mystical happenings.
Definitely worth the 4 hour queue.
