‘Dear Father’, an in-store exhibition, has been curated by Lord Coconut as part of the Melbourne Spring Fashion Week 2011 Look.Stop.Shop program. The exhibition is a historical exhibition of vintage postcards Lord Coconut sent to his father, whilst travelling on his grand tour between 1898 and 1911. During this time, Lord Coconut visited a number of counties throughout the world and sent back both the postcard and a small trinket which represented his travels in each country.
Each jeweller, as part of the exhibition, was given one of these postcards and asked to re-produce the small gift that Lord Coconut may have sent back to his father which reflects the postcard’s origin.
