Vista Bar, Trafalgar Hotel, London WC1

This series of pen, brush and ink drawings of gentleman’s apparel, were also commissioned by Peckham Rye Tailors, after the well-received Family Portrait piece.

These works however, were for a joint venture between the tailors and the Vista Rooftop Bar at the Trafalgar Hotel in London’s Trafalgar Square. The cocktail menu is a collection of classic drinks with a British historical connection. The obvious parallels with the tailor’s rich past made it the perfect marriage. Drawing heavily from my qualifications and experience of the fashion world, the illustrations were all taken from photographs of many items in the Peckham Rye shop, Newburgh Street, London W1.

They are all ink and wash on watercolour paper.
