An Exclusive Tour of Faye Toogood’s New Studio - Felix ODELL c/o CAMERALINK for WSJ

IN AN OLD PHOTO of Faye Toogood from 2012, she is gazing rather sternly into the camera, sporting platinum-blond hair and a leopard-print minidress. She had just collaborated with Opening Ceremony, creating furniture and interiors for the fashion brand’s London pop-up. Some five years later, Toogood is sitting in a chair of her own design, on the second floor of her new atelier, a Victorian townhouse in London’s Shoreditch neighborhood, wearing shades of beige: tan, flat-soled boots, sturdy cream trousers and a cream felt coat. Her hair is now its natural brown, and her expressions are softer. “I’ve created many identities,” says Toogood, who turned 40 this January. “There have been multiple haircuts, multiple wardrobes and multiple versions of me. I tend to step into whatever world it is that I am making at the time, and I very much inhabit that construct.”...Photos by Felix Odell for WSJ MAG
 

Nicolas Party 'Three Seasons' / Xavier Hufkens Gallery, 19 May—15 July 2017

For his inaugural exhibition at the gallery, Swiss artist Nicolas Party has executed two site-specific murals that transform the interior while creating a singular environment for a recent group of large-scale pictures and bronze sculptures. Working exclusively in vivid, highly-pigmented chalk pastels – either directly on the walls or primed canvases – Party invites us to rediscover this once popular but now often neglected medium. Respectful of the traditions that precede him on the one hand, but radically extending them on the other, the artist’s handling of the medium is anything but academic. Here, all associations with drawing, delicacy and fragility have been supplanted by a fresh, graphic sensibility and a technique more akin to painting. Unlike paint, however, pastels are blended directly upon the support: a task that requires great exactitude and foresight.

While the popularity of pastels has waxed and waned over the centuries, their physical properties remain unchanged. From a seventeenth-century portrait to an Impressionist landscape, up to and including Party’s...
 

More and more bikes have reflective element

Discreet, simple to use and especially very practical, the bike transport strap offers the cyclist who wear safety vest the opportunity to easily carry his two-wheeler by hand. To be fixed on the frame, it is ideal for those who circulate in town since it makes it possible to quickly approach a staircase or its arrival in the metro for example. Made of leather, the strap is both comfortable and durable. Not to mention that it will bring a little retro touch to the bike!
How do you carry your business with style when you're cycling? Using the pair of Red Portland bicycle panniers! A double space of 24 to 29 liters proves very convenient to store files, computer and even his lunch in safety. It is also possible to use only one satchel according to the days and needs since the pair is divisible.

'La Chaise Ironique'* by RANKIN

Rankin Film Reps are pleased to present an experimental, playful and reflective new project from photographer and director, Rankin. La Chaise Ironique is a powerful and culturally impactful study of one of fashion’s most iconic and pioneering muses: the chair. For Rankin, the current trend for “les chaises” in high fashion is just the tip of the iceberg. Themes of history, power, politics and revolution all manifest in what, to many, is just a simple household object.

Rankin: “Fashion is cyclical and the chair is a buoy in the ever changing choppy waters of style, that shift and change like the tide. It is the vacuum of calm in the middle of a twister of haute couture. All around it, as fashion ebbs and flows as fleetingly as a field of barley in the wind, the chair stands steadfast and tall”.

Almost the antithesis of a monarch’s throne, the simple chair has drifted in and out of fashion, whilst remaining a constant from the 60’s till today. However, where others see four legs and a seat, Rankin, one of society’s most prescient commentators, sees more. Over the past year he...
