Lovely Lee has opened a new little area inside The Shop at Bluebird on the King's Road where his crafted wares sit alongside hightops by MM6 from Margiela and pop-graphic prints by Reilly. Here he is lookin dapper in shiny pumps surrounded by his decantery magic. Nice one Lee!
His style at home is a little different to at work - his flat on the border of Soho and Bloomsbury is a rainbow bright ode to post-punk camp, full of S&M imagery, religious iconography, skulls and Diptyque candles.
Now he wants to sell the whole package - the flat with the furniture in it (but not the art... Mapplethorpe... Gilbert + George...), as he did with his previous two, one was a slick Hoxton loft (his 90s project) and before that a Neo-Baroque opium den in Earl's Court (his 80s home). This 2-bedroom place costs £700k... it does have really nice polished plaster walls though and sweet Mexican tiling in the kitchen, right next to the DIY collage of 80s Soho club culture and the boiler-mounted love story to ripped sailors.
