Tales of Tommy Roberts

Among my current book projects is the life and career of Tommy Roberts, the British design figure whose track record includes operation of an amazing run of retail outlets – Kleptomania, Mr Freedom Kings Road, Mr Freedom Kensington,¬† City Lights Studio, Practical Styling + Tom-Tom – and associations with the who’s who of music, fashion, art + design over the last five decades.

Tommy has sent me a number of reminiscences which I’m posting occasionally on my own blog as tasters for the book, which will be out next year.

The first of Tommy’s tales, about City Lights Studio, is here.
