Everything stops for tea… Top British fashion model, Cara Delevingne joins a host of wild friends – including a pony, cockatoos, tortoise, pelican, Jack Russell, Patterdale Terrier and Great Dane for the SS 2012 Mulberry campaign. The “naughty tea party” was shot by photographer Tim Walker. Although still very romantic, literary and proper English in attitude, it’s very nice to see the brand get a little cheekier with its advertising. Not to mention the opportunity to tap into the social media phenomenon that is Cara. LOL fashion…

Designer SPOTTED. Filip Pagowski | graphic designer & illustrator. Polish-born, New York-based graphic artist. Diverse range of work for clients in US, Canada, France, Japan and Poland. First contacted Comme des Garçons designer Rei Kawakubo in the 80s with pictures of a performance/fashion show. He subsequently attended a number of men’s shows and was cast for the summer 1992 show. “The heart image happened simultaneously with, but independently of the creation of the PLAY line. It’s as if Rei Kawakubo and I were affected subliminally by each other’s work,” explained Pagowski. “I remember working on something… not connected to anything. I got this idea of a red heart with a set of eyes. I drew it instantaneously and the first draft was it. I submitted it for another CdG project, for which it never made it, but eventually it resurfaced; making bigger waves as a logo for the PLAY line.” Great story and simply brilliant all-around…

A rollcall of top artists have also contributed installations to the store. Simply, an amazingly eclectic, eye-popping and often surreal experience. So, if you’re the shopping type (or not), DSM is well worth a trip to check out the extraordinary sights. The over stimulated can take a breather at the oh-so-yummy Rose Bakery. New York retail just got a bit brighter…
