The best Italian contemporary fashion, film and food are in abundance as the House of Peroni celebrates Italy this month.
This House has to be seen to be believed! Achingly hip but dreamily conceived and executed. Peroni beers and street food in the garden.
I am going back for more this weekend!
It closes on Sunday 🙂

“It’s the first day of the closing down sale …. Starring Katy Wix (Not Going Out) and featuring Blake Harrison (The Inbetweeners)
Based on Emily Benet’s acclaimed blog about working in her mum’s closing down lighting shop in Bermondsey.”
Katy Wix is like a Miranda Hart that is slightly reined in!

Opening Night Review
It is always a gamble to buy art at a graduate art college show, but it is also a buzz. It is also a buzz to see drama students strutting their stuff pre-graduation. Last night I saw a star being born. I wish I could buy shares in her career!
I attended a Royal Central School of Speech and Drama production of Noel Coward’s subversive play, Easy Virtue, and found much virtue in the production and direction (by Orange Tree veteran Auriol Smith) and in the acting by the college’s BA Honours Acting Students.
This type of fully produced play is an opportunity for a young star to shine and Imogen Sage in the female lead as the exotic Larita didn’t disappoint. It is a well crafted, integrated role, but really much of the play depends on the performance of the principal; the plot fawns around her exotica and diva mood swings and Ms Sage was truly magnificent – her (slightly foreign) accent was impeccable, her diction perfect, her delivery was – at times – electrifying and her stage presence was enough to quell the wonderfully opposing hostess of this country house piece played majestically by another rising star, Christa Engelbrecht. I must also mention Maeve O’Sullivan for a wonderfully funny, bouncy entrance as the star-struck Hilda.

In the fall of 1969 the Rolling Stones were in a Los Angeles recording studio, putting the final touches on their album Let it Bleed. It was a tumultuous time for the Stones.
