Anthropologie on Kings Road


Orla's store in Covent garden
The Boxpark in Shoreditch



Tea at Peyton and Byrne?
Tomorrow I'll leave on a businesstrip to London. I will have a meeting with people from a large UK department store for a lovely project. If the outcome is positive you'll be the first to know what it is!

Next to that this trip will be special because my friend and German distributor Sabine Wittig (from online shop La Mesa and Blog Azurweiss) and me are going to meet each other at Heathrow airport and we will spend most of the days in London together. We haven't seen each other for 8 years. And of course my English distributors, Saskia & Sofie will be there too...I am really looking forward to it!

I hope to find time for visiting Uniqlo (to buy some Orla Kiely stoles for only a few pounds), to show Sabine the Anthropologie store on Kings Road and the Orla store in Covent Garden.
And I would love to go back to the Shoreditch area, there seems so much to be going on. There's this new Boxpark, worlds first pop-up mall, housed in simple sea containers and there seem to be several new shops since I was there 1,5 years ago.

If we find time: of course we'll visit the V & A-museum and Tate Modern...

My special wish for this time: a real British Afternoon Tea, I must admit I never had a Tea in London before! Would you happen to know a good (meaning new/hip/organic or completely traditional - fine with me!) London Tearoom? Thanks for any good ideas!

  1. Have a great time! I brought back some Uniqlo Orla Kiely stole from NYC and I LOVE them! I still can't believe they were so inexpensive as the quality is really nice. They also had some nice Masking Tapes stoles at Uniqlo!

  2. You lucky woman! I was in Uniqlo New York last August and all there was left was a Orla-tunica in colours no one liked. Still bought it, my only NY-souvenir...
