Recently my husband stood me up for dinner – nothing to do but walk the streets of London alone. Aww.  Fortunately, that is rarely dull, especially when around the windows of New Bond Street.  This particular evening, it was Other Criteria at number 36 that especially delighted.

Not only was the entire facade wrapped in black glossy chintz, but it was co-ordinated to the clothes on display inside the (alas now closed) Mother of Pearl gallery.  Loving this!

If you have not yet discovered it, Other Criteria is the publishing company founded by Damien Hirst in 2005 and they have a very good website at https://www.othercriteria.com/

I had to go back and photograph it for you properly by daylight.  

The windows were created by some of the creative team behind Mother of Pearl (Maia Norman, Hirst’s wife)

It cheered me up to no end.
