We've been following this brand back in London for some time now and the schemes just get better and better. Their New York stores are quite spectacular though and this monochromatic scheme in Grey (possibly 50 shades of it we're guessing?) is no exception. We've made a video (below) of this scheme as its hard to appreciate the detail of the work here in a still image. Just a few more days to go before the big day and sadly schemes like this will fade, well, to Grey we guess.

There's nothing like a good old British hand made product (not easy to find these days) and of course the world loves it. This is quite a new brand to us, and so is http://www.shepparddesign.co.uk/ who created this scheme for this central London store. It still amazes us that so many hidden gems pop up from under our radar (possibly VM-dar?) but still its another delicious find to share with you.
With De Beers being the signature and epitome of all things luxury it was a pleasure to come across their installation with its slightly tongue in cheek 'Home of Diamonds' windows here in the centre of it all. London phone boxes (which incidentally can now only sadly be seen in the centre of London, usually with tourists hanging out of them for that necessary photo opportunity) and of course the omnipresent post box with a cut out London cityscape forming the backdrop. All props have naturally been exquisitely produced for this Uber brand.
We've included ABC here this week which is a corker of a store but across the road is Fishs Eddy which we always check out as part of our journey. Rocking a staggering 30 years, this store as always looks incredible (and a lot cheaper than ABC). While we dont know a huge amount about this brand they do always have amazing products which are inclined towards a local market and therefore great for those more interesting gifts to take elsewhere. Just a few more days until Christmas and the city is as freezing as one would expect this time of year.
