High-street favourite H&M has re-launched its Oxford Street store. Boasting 3,750sqm of fashion spread across six floors, shoppers can expect a flashy shoe lounge, a chill-out area with swanky seats and a whopping 80 fitting rooms. Does that mean no more queueing for the changing room? We hope so! Super stylish and international blogger Susie Lau of Style Bubble has styled the windows of the store, selecting her favourite pieces from the collection.
Also open this month is Phase Eight‘s new concept store in boutique shopping hub St Christopher’s Place, off Oxford Street. Famous for their fabulous occasion-wear, the store is beautifully decked out with vintage-inspired furnishings. As well as being chock-full of clothes, shoes and accessories, there’s also a bridal space offering bespoke stylist advice to brides-to-be.
Shoppers can now connect with shops, restaurants, cafes and bars on London’s iconic Regent Street thanks to its new online community. The social media hub – named 24/7 – can be accessed through the website regentstreetonline.com. More than 100 Regent Street brands are connected to the hub, including Liberty London, Whole Foods Market, Superdry and Ted Baker. Any mentions of the area on social networking sites, such as Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest and Instagram, will appear on the hub.
Finally, here’s a date for the diary for any label lovers out there. Designer fashion recycling event BuyMyWardrobe is taking over the Kensington Roof Gardens with bargains aplenty on Saturday 27 April. Shoppers will get the opportunity to raid the wardrobes of more than 30 stylish women with designer goodies including the likes of Stella McCartney, Mulberry and Christian Louboutin. You can enjoy a sneaky peak into the wardrobes of some of the UK’s top fashion bloggers, including Ella Catliffe of La Petite Anglaise and Monica Welburn of The Elgin Avenue. Fashionistas can also expect complimentary eyebrow threading, express makeovers, a live DJ, designer goodie bags, indulgent treats and lashings of champagne. Cheers!
