Sneak preview of Phillips de Pury's new London HQ

Members of the fashion and art press were invited along to an informal preview of the Phillips de Pury auction house's new premises yesterday. Pictured at the centre of this huddle (red clipboard) at the splendid, converted post office in London's Victoria is the famous aesthete behind the project himself, Simon de Pury. Capitalising on the fanfare surrounding 'Frieze Week', the auctioneer has also arranged a rather fantastic side-show to his inaugral sale at the site on Saturday night: a concert by the reformed Human League! I might just take along the SHOWstudio video phone, who knows?!
