News for July
August 02, 2019
The month of July has flown by in a flurry of heat waves and torrential downpours, the month heralds the start of the summer and our minds turn to holidays and to the outdoors. We have made the most of the month with Cane Line and the beautiful Santa & Cole and Forza had exciting news with a new partner for growth. The team are all ready for summer and we have a few of our favourite things to do if you are having an urban summer. Take in the wonderful serpentine and then head south of the river for a dose of colour, and take a look round a Dutch post-impressionist house.
Visit the new Serpentine Coffee House is inspired by a stingray’s flight through water. The brainchild of Mizzi Studio, the pavilion was created using state-of-art techniques — that gleaming roof is hand painted to give an aged-brass finish, with dimples on the stingray’s underbelly creating an almost reptilian effect.
If you head south of the river visit the Dulwich Picture Gallery and let you eyes feast on the ‘The Colour Palace’ – a lively and celebratory fusion of European and African cultural traditions by Pricegore and Yinka Ilori – has been chosen as the second Dulwich Pavilion for summer 2019.
Continuing along the South of the river in Stockwell the London house in which famous painter Vincent Van Gogh — subject of a major exhibition at Tate Britain — lived during his twenties is now open the public.
It was only a small period of his life, between 1873 and 1877, and not much evidence of his time in the capital remains. The house has recently been refurbished and is now open for guided tours.
