A few of our (current) favourite things

JM Ferrater or José Manuel Ferrater is a bold Spanish photographer who started out in fashion but now also works in advertising and portraiture. The team’s online project- Ferrater Studio is well worth checking out for strong and inspiring images.

There’s a veiled and haunted quality in the photography and styling which belies its immediate beauty. Faces are troubled, masked, concealed… We loved this bittersweet image in which the model wears a trio of metallic Mawi necklaces from the Spring/Summer ’10 collection bunched at once carelessly and artfully together.

We ♥ Frank’s Bar


Much as I love Frank’s- the bar, cafe and sculpture park perched atop a Peckham multi-storey car park, I must admit that it’s a bit of a nightmare to get to. However I was soon helped out… “It’s that way,” volunteered some guys, sitting by the side of the road. Sure enough, they knew exactly what I was looking for, without me having to tell them. Thanks to Franks their little corner of Peckham has been invaded, and evidently the locals know just who by.

But putting that slightly embarrassing element of the whole thing to one side, the views from the rooftop are completely beautiful. The buildings surrounding the carpark aren’t very tall so although you’re not actually that high up you can enjoy spectacular almost 360 degree vistas.The project is run by Hannah Barry of the Hannah Barry Gallery and her team (on the level below the rooftop bar there are some light installation sculptures, although fewer than I had been expecting.)

The ‘bar’ itself has been designed by Paloma Gormley (daughter of Antony) with its red tarpaulin flapping like a tall ship in the breeze.

The bar does shut quite early so it’s worth getting there early and although last year I felt like I was in on a secret, this year there’s been mountains of publicity and when I went along on the 2nd day they were so busy that they’d stopped serving food by 9pm when we finally navigated our way there.

Still, head down early with a group of friends and some cash (they don’t take cards) maybe on a weekday night and soak up the sunset and some of the best views in London!
