Mask Loves

This week Mask Loves the new cocktail bar at the Gherkin, the Frida Kahlo exhibition, homemade ice lollies, the reinvention of the Dior saddle bag, and DiscoYoga!

IRIS AND HELIX

The Gherkin’s new panoramic cocktail bar, Iris, and restaurant, Helix, opened to the public last month. Formally known as Searcys, a private members club. Cocktails, food and skyscrapers; what more could you want really? We can’t wait to peak our heads into the clouds and try it out!

FRIDA KAHLO EXHIBITION

This amazing exhibition at the V&A Museum is presenting a collection of personal artefacts and clothing that belong to the iconic Mexican artist Frida Kahlo. The exhibit features some of her most popular work, as well as her personal items such as dresses, shoes and cosmetics. Our favourite piece of the collection was her self-portrait, on the boarder of the US and Mexico in 1932, which gives insights into cultural and societal occurrences of the period. Let us know what you think on twitter!

BESPOKE ICE LOLLIES

Beat the heat this weekend with homemade ice lollies! Whether you decorate them with frozen fruit or flowers, these treats are sure to be a crowd pleaser! And for a seriously lazy, hazy summer afternoon, you can always add in a few drops of your favourite tipple… At Mask we love to add Prosecco, our go-to drink of choice this summer! Share your creations with us!

DIOR A/W 2018 SADDLE BAG

Channeling our inner Carrie Bradshaw, we have stars in our eyes for these reinvented saddle bags by Dior. For the upcoming season, they are sporting the classic leather brass, patchwork and, our personal favourite, beads! Unfortunately these babies won’t hit stores until fall, but for now we can spot them on the arms of our favourite celebs.
