Christopher Kane’s summer collection 2010  turned good girls bad,

drawing inspiration from the movie “Lolita”.

Pastel coloured and puffed-sleeve gingham dresses, bra-style contouring

and glimpses of nude chiffon underskirts gently subvert the sweetness of these clever creations.

From Friday 30th April to Sunday 9th May

The first Earth Day was founded in 1970 by U.S. Senator Gaylord Nelson

to create awareness and appreciation for the Earth and its environment.

It’s now celebrated in almost 200 countries. Every year this day advances mindfulness about climate policy,

energy efficiency, renewable energy and green jobs,

involving people to make personal commitments to sustainability.

A pivotal opportunity for individuals, corporations and governments to join together

and create a global green economy – promoting green building,

organic agriculture and responsible environmental practices.

This year the core event for celebrating

the Earth Day takes place at the National Mall in Washington DC :

a massive climate rally with notable speakers and live music.

Earth Day will continue on Sunday 25th

in London, New York, Rome and in other major capital cities around the world.

There will be more than 40 open events, amongst concerts and panels.

Kris Ruhs Jewellery

Kris Ruhs has over the years built up a sizable body of work; each piece is hammered,

shaped and composed in a way that echoes the artist’s larger sculptures.

Ruhs’s artistic curiosity is reflected in mediums

as diverse as rope, wood, silver, brass and gold.

The organic elements individually fashioned in these materials,

when joined together, lead the eye into seeing increasingly complex relationships

between the simple shapes he chooses to fashion.

On view are a series of necklaces, brooches, pendants and body ornaments

that echo Ruhs’s larger and earlier projects, expanding

from his first exhibitions in New York City in the 1980’s to the present.
