Wednesday night, we kicked off the festive season in style with our sparkling ‘Gift Box’ soirée.

‘Gift Box’ was our way of supporting fresh young design talent. Decorative porcelain boxes by Emma Alington, laser cut plates by Chen Zou, figurines by Katya Taylor, and up-cycled homewear by Jasmine Riordan, were on display and for sale for the very first time. Bertie Bertinez’s hand-knitted hats were also a hit, and we all fell in love with his technicolour dream jumper! We’re keen to pin Bertie down for a style feature on the blog soon…so watch this space.

The night was also a great way to celebrate our nomination for ‘Best Premium Independent Retailer’ at this year’s prestigious Drapers awards.

Starting at 6, the party went on until 9: canapés, bubbles, friends, and laughter made it an amazing, remarkable evening.

All the artists work will stay in the shop until Christmas. They make perfect presents, so go ahead and treat your loved ones…or give a gift to yourself!
