Following on from the success of last year’s ABOYDBAZAAR at No.5 Maddox Street, we are delighted to, once again, play host to this event on the 24th and 25th April in the Bartlett Suite. Using the handcrafted methods of local artisans in exotic, far-flung corners of the world, Tracey Boyd manages to re-invent traditional pieces to create something unexpectedly modern and beautiful. Inspired by her travels around the globe (jealous, moi?), Tracey creates an eclectic collection of shirts, cushions and accessories that are available to buy from her website.
“Whether it’s a vintage cotton Indian blanket re-invented with shell and wool embroideries or a finely beaded tasselled shirt designed from scratch. This crazy cornucopia of limited editions is what makes ABOYDBAZAAR.”
I just love all of the intricate detailing and cannot wait to see the full collection. The cushions are to die for and would look amazing in my pied-à-terre. These are investment pieces with an incredible authenticity and a wonderful backstory; my decision to purchase is made even easier in the knowledge that I have supported the employment of the women in India who make these by hand.
