Men in black


One visitor to the current Mies show at the Whitechapel attracted international attention - David Adjaye (pronounced AJ, according to me). No less an organ than the New York Times spotted him at the opening, standing out as a result of a 'scarlet turtleneck' accompanying the obligatory black suit.The paper describes him as 'dapper as any Prada-clad design personage but with the open mien of a boy next door'. I am beginning to believe in that slogan: 'Adjaye - it's not a name, it's a brand'!
