BEAUTIFUL ! The detail, variety and textures: all sublime.
Oh I wish I could touch them.
Braved this this morning despite worrying that it might be intimidatingly posh. Really glad I went. Had a nice chat with the woman from the Henry Moore foundation about the old days when you used to have to make an appointment to visit Perry Green – so different now.
It was raining heavily while I was there and it was a bit of a worry just how many buckets were being deployed near the exquisitely worked capes in order to catch the drips from the glass ceiling.
It was pleasingly busy and an excellent opportunity for people watching – especially of creative young fashion students.
So glad you saw it. Posh, but democratic. Charles
