No4. CLIFFORD STREET
Our New Home is Now Open
No.4 Clifford Street, the new home of Connolly, is an elegant Georgian building - one of the oldest in London’s Mayfair. The house dating from 1719 and originally conceived by the architect John Witt has been meticulously restored. This beautiful building and its architectural history has been reimagined by Gilles and Boissier, the Paris based architects and designers into a contemporary retail space and showroom set over three floors, for the Connolly collection of clothes and leather goods. Encased in elegant wood paneling, and bespoke furniture and fixtures hand crafted in fumed oak and hornbeam cabinets.
Customers feel completely at home in this warm and welcoming environment that evokes the past and sets the scene for the present story of Connolly.

Photographic Exhibition at Connolly
Connolly England are exhibiting works by Heinz Hajek-Halke, the iconic German photographer who pushed the boundaries of photographic techniques in a career spanning across much of the 20th Century.
In his early career, much interrupted by the two world wars, Hajek-Halke worked in film, poster design and publishing before turning to photography. He experimented with light montages, double exposures, photo-collages and photomontages.
In 1948, he joined the emerging experimental photographic community in Germany, the Fotoform group. In the 1950s, his work was included in several key shows of abstract experimental photography, such as Otto Steinert’s Subjektive Photographie exhibitions and the 1954 Photokina show in Cologne.
He became a photography and graphic arts professor at the School of Fine Arts, Berlin and was an active member of the German photography community, publishing his book on photogram techniques, Lichtgraphik. At this time, Hajek-Halke renewed his early interests in the cameraless photogram and in creating photographic abstractions by means of a wide variety of darkroom techniques he had mastered before the Second World War.
It is these later works that Connolly are delighted to exhibit.
12 of this pioneering artist’s most iconic works will be on display at 4 Clifford Street, London W1 from 5th October to February 2018.
