The House of Peroni returns to Brick Lane this month with the brand’s latest residency, this autumn entitled ‘Vita all’Interno’ and open to explore throughout November. As something of a super-fan (I’ve made it to every residency so far, it’s becoming tradition) I’m looking forward to experiencing the ‘most immersive and multi-sensory residency to date’ and, of course, the cocktails.
The month-long event aims to bring the heart of the Italian home to London, welcoming guests to explore Michelin-starred food and Peroni Nastro Azzurro infused cocktails in surroundings inspired by the Italian home.
From ‘passionate nonna’s’ running the home to a never ending dining table, a laundry room inspired by Italian couture, and keys which open the doors to experiences hidden with the event, I’m intrigued to see what’s in store!
Look out for a few sneak peaks from tomorrow’s launch on instagram @acidbrights – close ups of cocktails likely.
The House of Peroni takes up residence at
152 Brick Lane, London, E1 6RU
from 29th October, closing 25th November. Free entry, 18+ only. For more information about The House of Peroni visit: www.thehouseofperoni.com You can read my reviews of the previous residencies here, and see what happened at the launch of the original House of Peroni in July 2013 here.
In the spirit of LFW and all things fashion related, I thought it might be time to post a few pictures from the opening night of the Women Fashion Power exhibition at the Design Museum. Yes, that’s right ladies, the opening night which took place back in October…
My laziness is certainly not a reflection of how much I enjoyed this event. The exhibition is both inspiring and utterly fascinating for someone like myself with an interest in how women use the way that they dress to define their position in the world, and I urge anyone with a love of fashion to head down to London Bridge and take a look before it finishes on the 26th April.
Featuring outfits and personal style philosophies from the likes of Lady Gaga, Diane von Furstenburg, Charlotte Olympia Dellal and Anne Hidalgo, the exhibition hosts the most wide-ranging presentation of modern fashion ever to be shown in the UK.

You’ll usually find me tucked away in a cocktail bar come Friday evening, or at least sat in front of a film whilst tucking into a Dominos. One particular Friday a few weeks ago however, we decided to try something a bit different. As a Sound Engineer I think it’s fair to say that Oliver is somewhat obsessed with sound, in the way that it could be said that I obsess over the changing of the seasons just so that I’m able to give my new winter coat an outing. So fairly obsessed.
For this reason I’m often being invited to various sound related seminars and gigs – most recently an hour long talk about echoes and reverberation (yes, echoes) which was actually a lot more interesting than it sounds. It’s important to me to be able to share the things we’re interested in, and I love having the opportunity to learn new things I’d otherwise never have discovered. So when Oliver invited me along to Late London: Sonic City, an event taking place at The Museum of London Docklands, I thought hey, let’s give it a go. I’ve secretly always wanted to visit one of the ‘late night’ museum exhibitions anyway, so managed to kill two birds with one stone.
The exhibition was slightly bizarre and difficult for a non-sound person to relate to. I can’t pretend I didn’t have to stifle a (childish) giggle when listening to some of the acts during moments I was supposed to be quiet and reflective, and the artwork I created during the Art of Listening was questionable to say the least. Other than the fact that I don’t have an artistic bone in my body, overall I had a great evening and really enjoyed sharing in something that my boyfriend loves. It proved to both of us that Friday nights don’t have to equal a food induced coma or a bar tab you’re going to regret the next day.
We did, of course, stop at the bar next door on the way home to ‘discuss the exhibition’.
Have you ever been to one of the London Late exhibitions? I’m on the lookout for recommendations!
