LFW Diary SS12: Simeon Farrar

Inspired by the 'Great British summertime in all it's pathetic glory', one of my favourites from the SS12 LFW exhibition has to be Simeon Farrar, who installed a cute and colourful beach hut in the Embankment Galleries of Somerset House. With a keen eye for screen-printing, fine artist Farrar has taken the dreary British summer as his theme using seasonal phrases such as 'raining cats and dogs' as inspiration for his whimsical and pop-esque prints. Updating both classic and iconic prints such as the Kate (Moss) Mouse, Farrar has given his iconic portraits a punk update. Collaborating with umbrella manufacturer Fulton for the inaugural time guests to the hut got to walk away with a sleek limited edition piece, depicting illustrated cats and dogs - super cute!
