This Week's Discoveries
Our studio neighbour Louise Markey is the lovely lady behind the brand LF MARKEY, creating modern and feminine women’s clothes inspired by workwear and utility clothing. For five weeks she is taking over a shop in Hackney Downs Studios. Visit to buy clothing, accessories, stationery and homewares. With guest designers including Giannina Capitani and Ellis White.
Marine Edith Crosta
Another of our wonderful studio neighbours is French painter Marine Edith Crosta. Her paintings of stormy seascapes are influenced by her time on the Atlantic coast, addressing the notion of intimacy and introspection. She's just released a new scented candle, June, which takes you on a trip to the French Atlantic coast - and we're totally in love.
We've just discovered photographer Flora Maclean and her beautiful work, playing with light and pattern. Starting out documenting the culture of the oft-ignored female footballing community, her body of work is now spanning fashion, portraiture, documentary and still life. Some of our favourites are Tourist and Dress Up.
