It was a while back now that I was contacted by the delightful Miss Fee Fee Lafou for some of my Neon coloured prints for her delightful soon to be Circus themed shop in the heart of Dalston in East London. As you can imagine, I’m never short of anything Neon in my studio, so off I went searching through my archive to see what I can give her that was suitable. As the launch of the shop was on Halloween, it was only fitting to give her the Brightly Florescent Vanitas Skull & for the subdued tastes out there, I also included a Black version.
I had first visted the shop when it was a work in progress, with the smell of gloss paint wafting through the air. It was shaping up to be one of the most amazing quirky boutiques I had ever seen. Once the official unveiling had happened, I was not to be disappointed.”This is the first of FFLF’s ambitious projects is to unveil Fee Fee La Fou HQ – an artist inspired, concept boutique that makes curious products for curious people ” Fee fee explains.
It’s spirit is inspired by ‘The Shop’ Tracy Emin’s & Sarah Lucas’s project space & Exhibition 3 curated by Peter Blake at the Museum of Everything.It’s a glorious space with lots of desirable feasts for the eyes, from Prints, to Home Wares, Jewellery as well as Miss Fee Fee’s own hand made objet d‘art.
The shop is open Wednesday – Saturday noon until 7pm & Sunday lunchtime until 5pm. It’s located just two minutes from Dalston Kingsland Overground Station & beside the Vortex Jazz bar, on 6 Bradbury Street, N16 8JN.
On Saturday the 10th of December FFLF will be celebrating the imminent arrival of Saint Nicholas & her Germanic roots by showcasing some gorgeous German Christmas decorations, handmade stocking fillers & original, extra ordinary Christmas gifts. Frohe Weihnachten.
