London – Tate Modern
On one of our recent trips to London we were able to enjoy the remarkable space of this outstanding modern and contemporary art gallery.
Exhibiting are two inspirational women artist – Sonia Delaunay and Marlene Dumas.
THE EY EXHIBITION: SONIA DELAUNAY
Amazingly modern for her time, Sonia Delaunay sought to extend art into the broader material culture. This major retrospective is simply wonderful. The pure colour and rhythm of her paintings and chic, timeless geometric shapes found on her knitted swimwear and clothing, made us realise how much Sonia Delaunay is a pioneer of abstract art.
We love this image of some of her clothing and it reminds us of our Koko poncho, which will be exclusively available in August at Matches.
MARLENE DUMAS: THE IMAGE AS BURDEN
Loved the haunting images and her poetic words.
Transitioning into Spring
Our Prairie summer dress has had a lovely feature in the Daily Telegraph – thank you Kate Finnigan, we are so pleased you have found your ‘dream prairie style dress’.

London & Paris Fashion Show Weeks
Queene and Belle were at the London and Paris Fashion Show Weeks as usual this year.
As well as spending time with clients and showing the new collections for the following season, there was a little time to wander around the streets of Paris and discover some inspiring window displays.
These were taken of a lovely bookstore on the Rue de Rivoli in Paris. The bags in the window were made from vintage wrapping paper.
In London, we show our collection from the Haymarket Hotel. This is a lovely venue and a great space to work from, as you can see from the photos.
