    Architecture is something that we're spoilt with having our headquarters in London but it is also a passion that runs deep in all that we do and when events like Architecture Biennale Venice are held, it is entirely impossible not to be inspired.

    The Architecture Biennale Venice event is held, as the name patently suggests, in Venice but you'll need to hop a plane post haste if you want to breathe it in for yourself because the final day of the event is this weekend.

    This year's event, which has been running since June, has been curated by Dutch designer, architect and all-round talented chap, Rem Koolhass (and, as you can see, he has an equally as epic name to go alongside his creative talents) who has picked out some of the finest architectural accomplishments of the year and gives the public the opportunity to witness these projects for themselves.

    A highly stimulating event that should appeal to your sensibilities even if you don't have a long-held interest in architecture, the Biennale has an ever-growing following from design aficionados and this year's event has been heralded as yet another success, chock-full of ingenious design inspiration.

    Though we're obviously purveyors of fashion here at Hentsch Man, architecture, art and design perennially pervade our ideas of inspiration and it is events like the Biennale that act as a catalyst for our creativity sessions.

    Wonderfully inventive, eye-opening and indicative of both the past and future of architectural design, the Biennale is unlike any other event and we whole-heartedly recommend that you hop on a plane in the next few days and check it out before it gets closed down on Sunday.

  • Pop Up Shopping

    Shopping around in Soho for potential pop-up shops is a fantastic way to spend a weekend... Still such weird and wonderful quirks to be found in this part of town... But sadly the various city councils and real estate conglomerates don't see it that way... They see big bucks and 'opportunity'.

    Why is London so hell-bent on gentrification? Don't they see that when the sex shops, vinyl havens, kebab corners, fabric retailers, various forms of black market trade, independent art stores, books stores, news agents and vintage shops are gone, they'll be gone for good and in their stead we'll have a soulless chain of high street stores and a drab made-to-order city centre not too dissimilar to what happened in the city...

    Maybe Hentsch Man is part of the problem too? Maybe a pop-up shop in lieu of a sex shop is just as bad as Starbucks? We like to think not, but maybe you disagree... Either way, it's what we're doing. Watch this space for details of our upcoming Christmas pop-up...
