Hip Shops – London

“When a man is tired of London he is tired of life; for there is in London all that life can afford.” – Samuel Johnson

That’s how I feel too. I’ve loved London from the very first time I sat foot in the city. It’s the city I love to return to, the city where I relax and enjoy the atmosphere. So when I found the web site Hip Shops, which shows you the best of the best shops in various cities around the globe.

In this post, I’ll take you on a trip to the coolest home deco shops in London.

Kate Spade – London Pop-Up Shop

Som I jo nok har lagt mærke til, så elsker jeg, når tingene er gennemførte. Derfor vil jeg lige fremhæve Kate Spades forholdsvis nye pop-up shop i Covent Garden. Butikken er åben indtil den 10. november 2010, hvorefter den lukker ned. Dog med det formål, at åbne en permanent Kate Spade shop i 2011 i dejlige London.

Grunden til at jeg bringer billeder fra shoppen er, at den er meget anderledes, gennemført og meget lækker. Et hyggeligt Townhouse i Covent Garden er blevet forvandlet til en inspirerende oase – sådan som Kate Spades hjem ville se ud, hvis hun skulle bo i London.

Hvad mener I om den her slags shop?

If you are in London you should visit the Kate Spade Pop-Up Shop in Covent Garden. A Townhouse has been transformed into an apartment where Kate Spade would live, if she lived in London. The shop looks amazing. But hurry up, it closes on November 10.

What do you think about this kind of shop?

Independent London # 2

For et lille års tid siden købte jeg første udgave af Independent London – en guide til den fantastiske by. Føler du også, at samtlige ‘almindelige’ guidebøger nævner de samme 20 butikker? Så er der godt nyt til dig. Independent London # 2 er på gaden den 15. november. Det er den bedste guide til independent shops i hele London. Med hele 222 shops, er der nok at vælge imellem. Som inkarneret London-fan, så er det helt sikkert et must i min reol – og i min kuffert. Jeg glæder mig meget til at nyde #2 lige så meget, som jeg har nydt første nummer.
