What to do, see & buy: Tony Conigliaro; Man Ray; Cult Furniture; Folklore; Sneaking into Fashion; Juicy Couture
Saturday 13 October 2012
When it comes to blending the perfect cocktail, master-mixologist Tony Conigliaro of chic London bar 69 Colebrooke Row has got flair. With signature tipples including 'The Twinkle' and 'White Truffle Martini', his new book is just the thing for the party season.
'Drinks: Unravelling the Mysteries of Flavour and Aroma in Drink', £25, eburypublishing.co.uk
Think you've seen everything by Man Ray, the master of photographic surrealism? Not yet you haven't. New book, Man Ray: Experiments in Photography, by Manfred Heiting includes stunning, previously unseen works.
Seats for sore eyes
Design purists, avert your eyes. Cult Furniture promises contemporary creations at affordable prices, with Eames and Stark among those whose pieces have lent inspiration. We love these powder-coated stacking chairs – based on a Xavier Pauchard design – for a splash of colour inside or out.
The monochrome set
These tasteful enamel plates from new homeware store Folklore are enough to tempt us away from plain white. And if they don't whet your appetite, check out the rest of the range, including a concrete shaving cup and beautiful lampshades. At the moment their only shop is in north London – but you can also buy online.
Trainer geeks can run riot at Sneaking into Fashion, an exhibition of rubber-soled favourites through the ages. With donations from Mo Farah and Noel Gallagher. 18-28 October in Covent Garden Piazza
Think Juicy Couture and you might picture garish velour tracksuits. But this season's collection is refreshingly varied, with this demure Covent Garden Floral Jacket, £265, and a cheetah-print cape among our favourite pieces. Something for whether you're feeling naughty or nice.
