On Friday last week, I had the privilege of attending the launch of bespoke sculptures by John Smedley’s artist in residence Guy Haddon Grant. This was a collaborative work celebrating their partnered passion for form and construction.
These sculptures were inspired by the machine beds, and movement of both needles and yarn at John Smedley’s factory in Derbyshire. As can be seen on one of the images below, the sculpture has both industrial and delicate characteristics providing a perfect synergy between the machines and the gentle knitwear produced.
Speaking of knitwear, there has always been one brand that comes to mind every times someone mention the term “knitwear” and that is John Smedely. If you are a lover of good quality knitwear you would have recognised John Smedley as the undisputed leader in this humble yet prestigious garment. Whether it is the roll neck or the polo knitwear, there is no denying the fact that the knitwear exudes elegance and style.
Rabindranath Tagore once said “Let your life lightly dance on the edges of Time like dew on the tip of a leaf”. I don’t know the context in which Rabindranath Tagore used the above phrase or why I am even using it here. I just know that it sounds cool and it might make me sound intelligent lol.
Now that we’ve gotten that out of the way, lets get on with the real reason I am writing this piece. One of the best investment a man could make on accessories or Jewellery is to buy a watch. Honestly, it is a worthy investment when you get the right one. I have never been one for smart watches as I prefer to keep my time pieces accurately functional whilst aestically true to form. This means no added “fluff”. It always annoys me when watch makers try to get to gimmicky with a timepiece.
I don’t know about you but this year seem to have whizzed by so fast. I mean, it feels like just the other day I was looking forward to summer but now it is all but gone. It seems like we are knee deep in autumn which I must say I love for its vibrant colours. Autumn is one season of the year that truly gives us a spectacle especially around parks and woods in and around London.
I can honestly say I have not had time to properly enjoy summer in London. My summer has been all about traveling to different countries and or working with brands to develop content for them. Kind of feel exhausting but in a good way lol. I don’t know how that is possible but yeah it was good to be busy and productive.
Hello everyone. Let me first of all apologise for going mia for about a week or so. I have been incredibly busy working behind the scenes to bring you great content. As a creative, I like to be involved in every aspect of producing everything you see on here and producing content for other brands. One day I will show you guys just how much work goes on behind the scenes. But first, allow me the pleasure of telling you about my most practical find in recent years when it comes to gadget and accessories, Ice watch.
Ice watch as you may already know is a huge brand that prides itself in creating colourful time pieces. They make beautiful watches for the entire family which is rare to see in the watch industry.
