Conrad Shawcross art

I love Conrad’s work and was drawn in by the shape and form of his sculptures - they have a very interesting rhythm and repeat. Then I discovered how he works with metals and textiles. He is incredibly skilled with materials, and works in scales that blur the line between art and architecture. Everyone should see and experience Conrad’s latest installation in the courtyard of London’s Royal Academy - it’s impressive and totally immerses you. It’s open until Sunday 16 August - trust me, go!’ conradshawcross.com

SPRING at Somerset House

The journey for fresh seasonal food just got a whole lot shorter for me since Skye Gyngell, previously head chef at Petersham Nurseries in Richmond, opened Spring. It’s a great addition to Somerset House.’ springrestaurant.co.uk (also pictured at top)

Oliver Spencer suede buffalo jacket

This jacket just fits my mood at the moment, but more than that I feel like I’ve had it forever. In other words, it’s a new friend that’s become an old friend.’
