Fish and chips, beer and a jolly good laugh, beaches and great weather; all examples of things which are great on their own but BRILLIANT in combination. Add to that list photographer Jenny van Sommers and art director Rachel Thomas who wowed us earlier this year with their super project lampooning the over-the-top promises on the back of shampoo bottles. Now the pair are back with an excellent series for the Anya Hindmarch Autumn/Winter collection which captures the idea of obsession through our relationship with classic games like chess, dominoes and backgammon.
Jenny admits the sets are built of “cheap corrugated-centre cardboard” which they then painted using a very high pigment super-mat paint. The results – we are sure you’ll agree – are absolutely splendid.
