We are delighted to have commissioned a new Heritage Trail for the King’s Road, in partnership with Cadogan.
Curated by Anna Stewart and Tetsuo Mukaiur, ‘Daydreaming on the King’s Road’ launches on Saturday 16th September as part of London Design Festival. Uncover the legendary moments experienced along this street and travel through the ages to meet some of the artists, radicals, designers, painters and poets, including: Mary Quant, Vivienne Westwood, Mick Jagger (who celebrated his 80th on the road recently), Terence Conran, the Beatles and many more.
Peel away layers of history – new homes were once verdant fields and dairies, flamboyant art-deco garages have been reinvented as restaurants, iconic clubs have morphed into gyms, and current jazz clubs were previously pheasantries. Take a deep dive into the design heritage that exists in the creative studios, stores and contemporary art spaces, and don’t forget to look up and admire the architecture that ties it all together.
