Near Fashion and Textile Museum, Bermondsey, London

Recommended Posts

Mrs D is off to see an Orla Kiely exhibition at the Fashion and Textile Museum.

 

So I am going to pop for a coffee or two to while away the hour or so that'll take before we meander to Matlby Street Market and then onwards to Brick Lane/Petticoat Lane.........

 

Any specific suggestions... particularly for the 1st hour/2 (so near the F&T)...

A quick search throws up:

[email protected] and Hej Coffee

 

The first one sounds a bit crass but (/and) looks pretty Hipster-ish

and Hej might be worth a look....

 

Anyone got any comments or suggestions........

I was going to take a pic of my loyalty card but I'm too embarrassed. Needless to say the f- word appears in many combinations ('this', 'that', 'you' 'off') etc.

 

The Hotmetalette made me go to the Orla Kiely exhibition too. Unless she really wants to drag it out she'll only be in there for 45 minutes. It's OK (pun intended) but it's not huge. The exhibition is 'a must' for Orla fans, a pilgrimage one might say, so even though it's fairly small she will probably love it if my Mrs' reaction was anything to go by. Just reassuring you that she's unlikely to get lost in there as it's hardly the V&A.

 

There is a place just nearby that looks like they know about coffee (opposite side of the road from the FTM, Chapter 72 I think - I haven't tried it, just remember thinking they looked like they might do a decent cup, and they do coffee based cocktails if the Orla Kiely gets too much for you!).

OK won't be too much for me..... not least because I won't be going in......

 

Lets see...... 45 minutes...

F&T to Chapter 72 = 1min

Chapter 72 to F*ckoffee = 3 min

F*ckoffee to Hej = 3 min

Back to F&T = 6 min

 

Mmmmmmm 1/2 hour for 3 coffees......... Should be do-able!!!

Been there once and enjoyed the place a lot even though I don't respect the fashion industry much. Always preferred to follow  Maurielle's guide and buy replicas than supporting fashion houses. Maybe that's a wrong approach but I just don't get it, why designer clothes and accrssories are that expensive.

Obviously from a few months back... but apropos your comment:

A few days (at most weeks) after MrsD visited this OK exhibition...
The OK* company went tits-up.... Leaving several staff out on their ear and jobless...

*Notwithstanding other apparent happenings with other OK companies and OK herself not being out of pocket but..............

Do you think there's a connection between MrsD visiting the exhibition & the company going tits-up? If she's ever booked a holiday with Thomas Cook we could have a pattern forming.

I would have thought with the amount of money MrsD spent on OK - she would be a millionaire living the life of luxury......

Oh hang on.... She is a millionaire living the life of luxury.... It is just her erstwhile staff who are penniless and jobless.....
