Day Out + OOTD | Covent Garden + Charles Pétillon Exhibition

9/02/2015 08:39:00 pm



















HAPPY SEPTEMBER ! Wow this year has gone so fast!

How have you been guys?

I wanted to share with you guys my lovely trip to London the other day with my family and family friends. I was so convinced that I needed to drop by Covent Garden because when I saw the cute balloons floating around Facebook, I was super captivated. I was so blessed that my parents coincidently had business near there to do beforehand, so they bought me here afterwards ^_^. 

The view was absolutely stunning. I loved the atmosphere of the balloons. The balloon invasion was supposed to make people change their way of seeing things and notice the things around them that they don't normally do. Charles Pétillon created this as a metaphor. With the name being HEARTBEAT, the balloons are also placed in the market building, as it represents the beating heart of Covent Garden.


I love how the balloons are all white, contrasting with the background. The fragility of them floating up in this building, still moving up + down yet also pulse - makes them alive. Gives alot of energy and vibrance to the architecture.









 I think this exhibition really blew my mind. I love them. I love installations. The idea of them make me get really excited. To me, they kind of remind me of architecture. Putting ART into the real world picture. And- I know it sounds very ambitious of me, but I'd love to display my own installation one day. 





I had food at Zizzi's ! The food was soooo delicious! ^_^

I've come across this bridge twice now. I've always wondered why there was a bridge in between these two buildings. It's apparently called the Bridge of Aspiration.

OOTD:

JACKET: Zara
BAG: TKMaxx
SHOES: Nike









I had a great time exploring a day of London. As a Cambridge girl, I don't go here quite often. However the vibrant and busy ambience makes me miss/think of the dynamic Hong Kong. It was also exciting to take photos of the surrounding and edit them ^_^ I might have gone a little crazy with the photos but I guess I don't come out often. Hopefully my second year of uni will entail alot more travelling with my friends + family! :D

Hope you've all had a great August! 

What do you think of the Balloon Invasion? 

Comment below I'd love to know ! <3

Much Love,

  12. I went there last week and was scheduling my post for my trips to London which includes Covent Garden OMG! I thought the balloons were a fantastic creation and definitely did keep my amused for at least a good 10 minutes, no joke >.< I love exploring, especially when London has a lot of buildings that are well sculptured. I took loads of pictures when I went and didn't even care about looking like a tourist that's from another country hahaha :P

  32. Is it horrible that as a Londoner, I have yet to see this exhibition at Covent Garden yet? I Live 20 minutes away and can't even spare the time to see those lovely clouds. How horrible. I'll make sure I make a trip down there before I go back to college. Looks like you had a wonderful time there! <3
