Serpentine Pavillion 2015

The other weekend, my boyfriend and I decided to check out this years Pavilion at the Serpentine Gallery. It's a special year for Serpentine Galleries as they celebrate the 15th anniversary of the Pavilion commission. The Serpentine Pavilion itself is known worldwide for its architecture and presenting innovative temporary structures by some of the most influential architects.

This year Spanish architects Selgascano designed the Pavilion. It consists of translucent, multi-coloured fluorine-based polymer which make up its layered and weaved structure. The final product isn't just eye catching and very photogenic, but full of detail with the intricate weaving and webbing.

In conjunction with this, one of my favourite brands Cos, have been supporting the galleries Park Nights programme of live events in art, performance, theatre, film and poetry which are hosted in the Pavilion. A limited edition backpack has been created to celebrate the series of events and is designed especially for men and women. The backpack itself stays true to Cos' simple but functional and contemporary design, made out of a soft canvas with leather trim detailing. All proceeds from the backpack will be donated to the Serpentine Trust, which is pretty nice of Cos. The backpack is available from the Serpentine Gallery gift shop as well as the following Cos stores; London Covent Garden, Brompton Road, Spitafileds and Kings Road.

I have to say, I fell in love with the bag instantly and even more in person. If I had around £80 spare I most definitely would have gone for it.

Now for a little OOTD taken inside the Pavilion:

It was a pretty hot day but I'm too much of a trouser girl to say goodbye to them for the summer heat (which has disappeared now). I'm loving linen at the moment as its perfect for those warmer days, allowing you to have a bit of coolness and freshness still. I found this linen long sleeved shirt in H&M for a nifty £14.99, jeans are vintage Levi's purchased from Rokit quite a few years ago and are still going strong, Goodhood 'Stay Free Forever' Tote bag from the Goodhood Store and Adidas Gazelles from Office.
