West - 2/5 - The Vintage Guide To London
From 1890s Rimmel cosmetics to 1970s chopper bikes, The Museum of Brands in Notting Hill brings together over 150 years of commercial design and advertising history.
London is an antique city encapsulated within the 21st century. Wrapped in a veneer of modernism and technology, the capital exudes antiquity from every crack and corner. Precarious tenements rub shoulders with glass fronted shopping centres and there are buildings which date back to a time when the cars parked outside them would have been something out of science fiction.
London is a beautiful city with vintage coursing through its very veins; you just have to know where to look…
If you love Mid-century furniture, retro lighting, ceramics, vintage textiles and artwork, then the Vintage Home Show is for you.
Travel back in time to the golden year’s of the King’s Road and find out how a tranquil area outside the centre of London, populated by stockbrokers and bankers, writers and poets was completely transformed by London’s youth culture during a crazy quarter of a century starting around 1955.
