- Fashion: one to whistle for…
When we heard Whistles was launching menswear we were thrilled – our bank accounts however were not! They can just stay hush though.
Building on there already fantastic womenswear, the menswear collection will host contemporary design, Winter knits, tailored styles and modern accessories. It’s relaxed yet fun with pops of pink and bright blues, just what you need to brighten up the grey months ahead. There’s a premium feel but it’s one which would appeal to not only the style savvy but also to the fashion shy.
The collection will be available as of 4th September from selected Whistle stores.
- Interiors: a new paint in town…
As you may already know, we’re huge fans of Annie Sloan paint and now that there’s a new colour on the scene we’re even more in love.
Napoleonic Blue takes inspiration from Ultramarine and Cobalt Blue pigments used for decorative work in neoclassical interiors. It’s regal, rich and as demonstrated on this desk is simply stunning. Now to find another piece of furniture to add to our ever growing ‘to paint’ list!
- Food: lager lovelies!
A little more of a drink focused one this week, last week’s Glasgow trip consisted of the Tennent’s Brewery Tour. You may recognise Tennent’s from the ‘T’ in T in the Park – it’s a famous Scottish lager and with the brewery’s home being Glasgow we couldn’t resist going and having a snoop around.
The tour is great, you learn all about how the lager is produced, the history of Tennent’s and then at the end (potentially our favourite bit) you get to try and taste all different types of beer!
It’s really fun and at only £7.50 it’s a great way to spend a couple of hours doing something a little different.
For all details head here!
- Places to go: be transported
Another one to add to your Glasgow ‘to go’ list (that’s if you even have one of course) is the Riverside Museum. Home to all things transport-focused, the museum has an impressive collection from skateboards and bikes to cars and trams as well as subway systems and even a replica of an old Glasgow street.
The building itself is stunning – designed by none other than Zaha Hadid, and gives a sense of a heartbeat, skyline and waves with an industrial feel all whilst the Clyde reflects beautifully off the architecture.
The museum is free and well worth a visit, if not just to marvel from afar.
