This UK glovemaker has been making the Queen’s¬†gloves for decades and has received the Royal Warrant – a¬†recognition of excellence. The Duchess of Cambridge was spotted wearing¬†the bow-tied Imogen style gloves in New York City this week, and just for fun, I thought I’d gather together a collection of their white gloves for a royal blog post. Oh, the fun!

Art & Design: Ian McChesney

Fiona Chan is Caviar20‘s hard-working, tireless, charming, and clever intern. An interior design student at Ryerson University, Fiona had a lot of great ideas for Caviar20’s “paint it black” week on White Cabana. She alerted us to this sensational sculpture, located in London, by British artist Ian McChesney.

Titled Out of the Strong Came Forth Sweetness, the 72-foot high (!!!) sculpture resembles the upside-down form of tar dripping off of a spoon. Made of carbon fibre by a company that does ship building, the base is actually a leather-covered round seating area. Wild!

Dear Readers: Do not adjust your computer screens. Troy is taking over White Cabana this week and, as you can see, he has really shaken things up around here! Enjoy. – Jordana
