Introducing Fabrice Druelle
Fabrice is The British Museum's online shop manager. With his team, he strives to promote the image and ethos of the museum's exhibitions through stunning products.
In his wishlist Fabrice selects his top art prints and gifts from both the British Museum Shop and CultureLabel.
'One could write pages after pages on every single aspect of this bracelet. Its geometric form is known as a Mobius strip, which is seen as a symbol of infinity. The Sonnet 116 iself still bears so much strength in our 21st Century. A bracelet, to wear, to read and to love.'
'I witnessed the passion displayed by Grayson Perry while he collaborated with the museum on his unique exhibition this year. It was an outstanding moment in the life of the Museum and this scarf is a fantastic memento.'
'Quirky is not a notion that is generally associated with the British Museum, but if you ever need an unusual umbrella (and who doesn't in London) this is a must have.'

You have chosen three photographs by Vikram Kushwah in your wishlist, what is it you like so much about his work?
'I was not familiar with Vikram Kushwah before stumbling upon his work on CultureLabel.
His work has this uniqueness I rarely find in contemporary photographers. It is a type of originality that pushes me to come back and look at his compositions again and again. The mixture of old themes and modern faces/models is so disturbing but so engaging at the same time.'
