We usually pass by this store along Bond Street as they rarely do anything interesting. In fact we have never included them here previously and have never really noticed them before. Established in 1774 this brand has a massive heritage and therefore no doubt have a huge Asian following, we would imagine? Anyway, we always go and see what good old, but exciting Tiffany are doing but never here until now. Someone has clearly been breathing some desperately needed life into this dusty old brand and it is finally looking interesting (we cant say again as they have never done anything before now as far as we know?). Anyway, if you happen to be making a bee line for McQueen or popping in to Joseph on your way to Fortnum’s do stop and have a look at what these guys are doing along the way. The day we looked the passing footfall were loving it and we actually had to take our turn in order to take photos. What better endorsement that you are doing something less ordinary can you get? Keep it coming guys…!
Amazing Pinterest site packed with fabulous ideas for retailers.
I’m loving this mood board app I have just bought for my ipad. It’s so simple to use, you can create professional looking boards in minutes anywhere.
Popped to Brompton Design Quarter the other day and came across the new Cassina furniture store which has taken the old Few and Far site. They have created a really beautiful store, elegant, stylish and contemporary. I particularly liked the way they had creatively used books as a dressing them throughout the store.
Here is some information about Cassina in their words.
Established in 1927, Cassina has been designing the future for over eighty years. During the 50’s the company, founded in Meda (Milan) by Cesare and Umberto Cassina, launched industrial design in Italy. In the rich and complex turmoil of that era, it was pioneering in the way it encouraged architects and designers to envision fresh designs and most of all translate their inspirations into reality. Taking a completely new approach, which saw a shift from handcraftsmanship to serial production, the company began to work side by side with designers. Since then, Cassina has shown a striking inclination for research and the ability to spark multi-participant dialogues between the most talented designers of both the 20th and 21st centuries, including architects and designers with quite diverse sensibilities, styles and creative spirits. The result: a mesh of stimulating ideas, from which Cassina always draws the best. This transversal culture of absolute quality defines the uniqueness of each Cassina piece.
