Fresh Milk – Milk concept boutique at London Design Festival

Acrylic bag is by Debra Frances Bean

The best things in life are easily missed as we rush through our daily lives on buses, tubes or in taxis. Having chosen instead to take a brisk and slightly wet walk from the Tramshed exhibit to Tent London during our week long London Design Festival trek we happened upon a new little shop which has taken residence in the Clerks House in Shoreditch, the premises that, if memory serves, were once home to Boy George’s brief retail adventure. The Milk Concept Boutique is a veritable treasure trove of unique art pieces, quirky fashions and home to an exclusive collection of Fornasetti pieces. The acrylic bag shown above is by Debra Frances Bean. Click more to see a dress made of grocery store bags, a painted cow and some lovely Fornasetti.

The Cow Parade collectors editionThe Cow Parade collectors edition

The Cow Parade has become a global icon of artistic expression with exhibits that have taken place around the world for over a decade. Cows, being universally regarded as friendly and lovable have been the perfect canvas for local artisans to design as they see fit. Milk carries museum and collector’s edition cows. They made us smile, that’s for sure.

Fornasetti vase by Bitossi Ceramiche

The family of Fornasetti vases by Bitossi Ceramiche is growing. It is as if all pieces of this collection had a natural inclination to disguise an elegant veiled humour. The DNA is indisputably Fornasetti, it is impossible not to take notice how every single vase actually owns a personality, and indeed a nickname such as Pois a Penses, Pirata (pirate), Pensee, Burlone (joker), Al Buio (in the dark), Ajna (third eye).
