Do you think it’s true that where artists go property developers follow? Well this is what our favourite interior designer and property developer Lesley McKenley tells us. So where is the’Emperor’s New Postcode’? It’s a great time to be a creative property developer…with cashflow. If you are in with the in-crowd, have your finger on the creative pulse, a head for figures and an eye for an area begging to be gentrified and regenerated then recession doesn’t mean doom and gloom, for you it means ‘opportunities in adversity’.
As soon as you see Ouigi or walk into Brooklyn Circus you don’t just see – you feel the essence of the brand – ‘classic aesthetics and antique motifs whilst upholding the pillars of modern design’. It seems we aren’t the only ones that are feeling Ouigi Theodore this month. Last week he was captured on The Sartorialist (see picture above) a blog famous for featuring the trendiest people on the street. Love this photo. It’s a beautiful portrait.
