THE EDIT

GREEN WITH ENVY

Ease yourself into Autumn colour with a bit of an edge. Going for green doesn’t have to be bold and bright… khaki tones teamed with animal effect accessories is a clever mix that always looks modern. If you’re feeling fashion confident, then go for the flirty frills and if you want to get a big step ahead, then it’s time to buy some turbo trainers.

What a load of nonsense… waiting another six weeks before you can slip into something that shimmers. Scrap that and sling on those sequins NOW! Tone down a bold, gold dress with a luxe leather belt, upgrade your easy black pants with a dazzling motif jumper, or update simple separates with twinkling stars. All day, all night, all year: rules were made to be broken.

in the mix

Camou, cord, check… Not sure which way to wear it? Try something different and mix pieces you wouldn’t normally try on together. An animal print jumper over a silky, funnel neck blouse… a smart blazer over a fuzzy, feel-me knit or a loose and silky shirt with razzy sequins. If this is all too much, go tone on tone with a smart coat and a simple cotton-jersey roll neck.

ANNI ALBERS

TATE MODERN, BANKSIDE, SE1

-UNTIL 27TH JANUARY 2019-

Don’t know your warp from your weft? This exhibition will set you right and you’ll be inspired along the way.

Yes, you might already know about Missoni and pattern, but what do you know about Anni Albers?  She was just as dynamic, pioneering and artistic in her day (1899-1994) and her legacy lives on in almost everything from textiles to wall hangings and rugs.  She even styled houses for the rich and famous, like the Rockefeller Guest House in Manhattan and the Harvard Graduate Centre. How students must have loved the modernity and glamour at the time (1949) …

This retrospective of Anni Albers work just zings with innovation and creative passion. The image of Anni at her loom with a spotty head scarf (1937) could reference a student at the RCA right now , and the Black Mountain College where she studied and taught after fleeing Germany before the war, sounds like the coolest place any aspiring textile designer could ever wish to study .

Yet, she didn’t opt for textiles originally, she wanted to be a painter, but was encouraged to take up weaving as a ‘woman’s craft’ but soon responded with enthusiasm displaying an obvious natural talent. This exhibition charts her progress from Bauhaus student to progressive textile designer, integrating new materials for weaving like cellophane and rayon which were incredibly avant-garde at the time . You’ll be inspired to look at pattern in an imaginative new light and crave a wall hanging, or room divider along the way! And with that in mind, if you can’t resist a gift shop, there are plenty of Albers inspired accessories to tempt.

Paul Smith was a fan and will be giving a talk on his long standing appreciation of her work on Saturday 17 November.
