At 9 a.m yesterday, A-Gent of Style arrived at the doors of the BADA Antiques and Fine Art Fair to attend the press preview before it opened to the public at 11 a.m. Returning to its favourite location until 24 March at the Duke of York Square, off Sloane Square, London SW3, this year’s fair, the 23rd annual edition, did not disappoint. On the contrary, it seemed like it surpassed itself once again

Housed in a purpose-built pavilion, the range of objects for sale ranging from various disciplines such as art, furniture and paintings to clocks, ceramics, silver, jewellery, rugs and much more from 16th century works of art to contemporary furniture is the place for collectors and also first-time buyers to buy antiques and fine art from Britain’s most renowned experts. Everything for sale is vetted for quality and authenticity and all exhibitors are members of the Association. The BADA fair is famed for its elegant design and spacious layout, providing a stunning setting for the beautiful works for sale for everyone from the first time buyer to the seasoned collector, with prices ranging from £100 to six figure sums.


Here are A-Gent of Style‘s highlights, favourite picks and some of the stunning vignettes that caught his attention and dazzled him as he browsed the fair for a couple of hours in the blissfully quiet and peaceful environment before the impressive queue of antiques admirers and collectors were let in.

FROSTY FAIR & THE CHRISTMAS DISPLAYS at FORTNUM & MASON

The competition is rife throughout the year amongst the leading department stores to dazzle, surprise and entice us, material consumerists, with their extraordinary and lavish displays. And over the festive period, the pressure is considerably heightened and the stakes even higher.

As per his habit on the first weekend of December, A-Gent of Style made the special trip to see what spectacle Fortnum & Mason had to unravel this Christmas. And they didn’t disappoint once again.

As by magic, the windows at the quintessentially British store  have been transformed into enchanting scenes of London covered in frost and snow, replete with their own gifts and decorations. The theme this year takes its inspiration from the famous River Thames Frost Fairs which hosted markets and carnivals on the frozen water between the 17th and 19th century during the freezing cold winters of Britain’s Little Ice Age.

And A-Gent of Style’s Christmas gift list is now officially open…
