We were delighted to be invited to the Vauxhall Collective Retrospective 2008-2010 exhibition last week.
For three years successful years, the Vauxhall Collective, set up by Vauxhall Motors as part of the ongoing commitment to championing style and design in the UK, has offered platform for the most promising creatives to develop their style and create unique projects across fine arts, photography, craft, design, fashion and film.
Keen fans of Jonathan Kelsey’s glamour driving set, the gold gloves and steering wheel cover are on our wish list, and would be the perfect accompaniment to our imminent Vauxhall car Test Drive next year. Gareth Neal's pop up urban picnic site also sparked interest, the ping pong set bought back childhood memories instantly. Studio Glithero’s ceramic surface classic “white on blue” jasperware style vases are simply beautiful. We also found Maurizio Anzeri’s synthetic hair printing very interesting; the idea of combining hair and old photos was so different.
It is so exciting to see Vauxhall’s strong interest in art and culture and the exhibition event drove home the support Vauxhall provide to innovative and creative talent across the design and fashion industries.
