John Simons: A Modernist - DVD

Post by studio-pots on Mon May 14, 2018 8:56 pm

A link to some information about a recent film/DVD about a friend of mine. As it says on the DVD, it's "about the life and times of legendary clothing retailer John Simons".


http://monomediafilms.london/our-films/a-modernist/

There is a short trailer at the top of the page in the link, which explains a little about John and his business and should appeal to anyone interested in mid 20th century men's fashion in the UK.

I have know John for 25 years or so from when I had a unit in Alfie's Antiques Market in Marylebone. John was a regular visitor to the centre and began coming to my unit and on occasions buying or selling me things. Besides John's interest in clothes and jazz, he has always been a collector from before I met him of Modern British Art and objects and over the years has begun to collect studio pottery as well. He continues to buy from me when I have something to his taste and calls me over to his place when he has some pots that I might be interested in. Despite his age, I suspect that not many a day goes by without him visiting the charity shops on his regular routes around North London.

You should have been included in the DVD, Brin.
