We’re not ones to blow our own trumpet here at Hg2 – OK, maybe a little bit – but sometimes we really can’t help it. After all, we’ve got plenty to shout about. This week it’s been all about Hg2 Art; compiled by 80 insiders – including artists, collectors, critics and curators – the treasure tome is comprised of 90+ essays and a number of original artworks specially commissioned for the book. Respected art editor Laura K. Jones commissioned her coolest contacts for the prestigious project, including big-names such as Gilbert & George, Will Self, Rankin and Sarah Lucas; there’s even a foreword by Charles Saatchi himself, which makes for highly interesting reading indeed. To celebrate the launch in our signature style, Hg2 and 200 of our closest friends descended on Hix Oyster & Champagne Bar at Selfridges last night; it was a decadent affair, with a never-ending supply of the finest Champagne and canapes streaming out from the kitchen. And with a slew of colourful characters flitting in and out of the party all night, it was the must-attend event.
