London for Art & Architecture lovers: how to plan your trip

The art and architecture lovers among us love city hopping, naturally. The more unique the finds, the more exciting it gets. The farther away from the beaten path, the better. Right? Here’s a gem for your next London visit if you’re particularly drawn to the field of architecture: use the London Architecture Diary and spice up your stay with architecture lover exhibitions, installations, talks & debates, conferences, film screenings, walks & tours to your personal gusto.

We also love the boutique tour company “Art History UK“, which makes travel feel like you’re back in design college: you get an enticing glimpse into Art History, packaged in private, personalized or public tours on location of the world’s most intriguing architecture and art exhibits London has to offer.

From diving into the background of Caravaggio’s controversial times while studying his stunning Renaissance oeuvre at the National Gallery, to discovering hidden street-art talent in a graffiti tour through the East End, or a saucy private tour into Soho spiced up with juicy stories from the present and past, your creative side will find plenty of ways to re-fuel your imagination and inspiration.

The London Menswear Spring Summer 2016 shows were full of surprises again, and anything BUT boring, let us tell you! While ready to wear collections will of course not be as exuberant as the pieces on runway shows, it seems there will be some bold moves on the horizon for gents next spring!

Lots of great inspirations hair and make-up artists can play with in photo shoots (we can’t wait to use some of them in the next classes of our hair and make-up school!) A few of the highlights we loved:
