Swedish Hasbeens pop up in Selfridges!

So this morning I POPPED down to Selfridges to see Swedish Hasbeens‘ POP UP shop opening. More than just oh-so-cute pastel coloured hand made shoes, the launch of the pop-up shop consisted of this dance performance in Selfridges Shoe Lounge. All the dancers, if you can’t see, were wearing a pair of Hasbeens.

The pop-up shop will run for four weeks and is located on the 2nd floor in the Shoe Galleries in Selfridges, London – for anyone having a little shopping trip!

And here’s four of my favourites… one for each week!

*The saddle shoe high, £332*

*The bowling shoe, £276*

*The Margot, £257*

*The Saddle shoe (unisex), £323*

Bicester Village strikes again: The British Designer Collective!

Yesterday saw the launch of Bicester Village’s British Designer Collective pop up shop. For the past three years the discount retail village has pulled together a few of Britain’s most amazing and talented designers to celebrate our country’s fashion industry, all supported by the British Fashion Council. And this year was, for me, the best show off since the pop up shop’s launch.

Not least because Holly Fulton features heavily, once again, but the actual shop is definitely worth a visit. I spoke with Melanie, Bicester’s digital marketing manager, who told me that this was the first year that they had bought an actual set designer on board to make the shop EVEN MORE brilliant. Old vintage door knobs and hand mirrors adorned the walls… and incredible clothes adorned the rails!

Take a look at some of the below, and then GET YOURSELF DOWN THERE to shop shop shop!

***All above – Holly Fulton’s discounted offerings. I want the dog too***

***Marios Schwab’s brilliant pearl embellished clothes***

***Of course, some Nicholas Kirkwood in the house! At 50% off. OMG***

***Emma Cook’s amazing prints and Hermoine de Paula’s floaty florals***
