I have been a long time fan of Camille Walala’s pop prints, and in particular her tendency towards a ridiculously enthusiastic proverb-of-sorts. Which is why, upon walking into XOYO’s XO bar in Old Street, I had an early assumption as to who had been let loose to redesign the space.

It is definitely an intense space – I felt that I was perhaps walking into Walala’s mind – and nothing is done my halves. High impact is an understatement. But most importantly, it is a lot of fun, and it definitely makes people smile. Although I imagine it may start to feel a bit disconcerting once the night progresses…

Not only that, but Camille is also working on a very intriguing collaboration for Dalston’s ‘Land of Kings’ festival, called ‘The Walala Greasy Spoon’. Check it out here: http://landofkings.co.uk/the-walala-greasy-spoon/
