Starting at the Dellasposa gallery would be a great choice, where you can admire the work of Lucien Freud and Francis Bacon. The work of Isamu Noguchi, which has been a form of inspiration for many of the Rejina Pyo sculptural heel designs and buttons, is on display at White Cube Masons Yard, and is a must-visit for any art lover. Now we are in Mayfair and St James’s I would also recommend Thaddaeus Ropac, Waddington Custot, Pippy Houldsworth Gallery, Pace Gallery and Sadie Coles HQ, where you can marvel at the work of both established contemporary and emerging artists.
As someone who loves to immerse myself in the city's energy, architecture and food culture, I always prefer to explore London by foot. Walking allows me to discover new areas and hidden gems that I might not notice otherwise. One of the other passions in my life is food, and some of my favourite restaurants include the simply beautiful cooking of Skye Gyngell at Spring in Somerset House, the delicious middle eastern inspired flavours at Bubala, and some of the best coffee and matcha in London from Omotesando, housed in surely one of the most lovely, if compact, coffee shops.
Also, do stop by my store at 37 Upper James St in Soho to see one of my favourite paintings by Catherine Repko from my own collection, and of course, browse our summer collections while you are there!
