Beard and wonderful

Never ones to turn down a project themed around beards, the Design Week team was pleased to hear of a particularly hirsute exhibition that launched at KK Outlet last night.

Illustrator Suzie Winsor has a passion for hairy fellas, and the exhibition, which runs until 28 February, is a good reflection of all creatures beardy. From Jarvis Cocker to Charles Darwin, her charming drawings are a kooky look at the history of face rugs.

Here’s a few of our favourite beards.

Jarvis Cocker - short but sweet
