Selfridges Christmas Shop Opens

We might be in the midst of a balmy summer, but Selfridges has now opened its famous Christmas shop. Located on the fourth floor, the Christmas shop homes more than 1000 different types of baubles, wreaths and festive trees. For real wow factor, those with cash to splash can snap up a 6ft polar bear for £1,599. If you’re seeking a gift with a difference, 120 advent calendars are  sold across beauty, fashion, food and home. Harrods has also opened its Christmas shop.

In other Selfridges news, the department store has opened a new toyshop, also on level four. To make it easy to navigate, the toyshop has been split into seven zones that cover everything from the coolest tech gadgets to a girl’s emporium. Toys are priced from a pocket-friendly 99p to an eye-popping £24,499.

New Urban Outfitters for Camden

Hipster-favourite Urban Outfitters has opened a store in Camden. Sited in a former cinema opposite Camden Town tube station, this is the American retailer’s eighth store in London. Decked out with reclaimed wood floors and exposed brickwork walls, the warehouse-style shop is chock-full of homeware, own brand fashion and gifts.

Sports Shop for Covent Garden

Snap up some stylish sporty garb at Covent Garden’s newest shop Y-3, Yohji Yamamoto’s fashion line with Adidas. Situated in a grade II listed building, the shop stocks clothes, footwear and accessories.

Happy birthday, Konditor & Cook!

Finally, we would like to wish a very happy 20th birthday to luxury cake bakery Konditor & Cook. Founder Gerhard Jenne opened his first shop in 1993 in the backstreets of Waterloo. Famed for its scrumptious chocolate vanilla Curly Whirly cake, highly decorated cupcakes and well-stocked brownie bar, Konditor & Cook now have six London stores: in Borough Market, Curzon Soho, Chancery Lane, Waterloo, the Southbank and The Gherkin. Why not celebrate with the bakery by scoffing some sweet treats? After all, birthdays are simply nature’s way of telling us to eat more cake…
