Paul Smith, Albemarle St., London


I always like to press my nose up against the glass of this Paul Smith Store along Albemarle st. in Mayfair, London and simply drool. The most delicious (and incredibly expensive) objets d'art perfectly placed simply oozing sophistication are contained within this site. Perfectly and elegantly, that is, 'stuff' that you never knew you wanted and possibly couldn't afford. I recently saw a piece of graffiti by Futura 2000 placed in the windows taken from The Clashes 1981 tour produced as a backdrop which was a snip at £35,000 - ouch. The windows here have chromed 1970's cubed side tables with a combined purchase price of £3,400. Still, if you have the cash, do go along and buy your piece of history. If, like me, you don't have the cash, do go along and enjoy the spectacle. There are some beautiful things here to view and enjoy, and well, viewing is free.
