I WENT TO THE GOOP Shop AND I LIKED IT
I lastly ventured into the Goop London
pop-up retailer on Westbourne Grove to see what the fuss was about. I didn’t really feel bombarded I did see lots of stuff I wanted to purchase. A set of amethyst-coloured tumblers, French Girl eye oil, lots of ecru-coloured cazhmere. Nothing at all ground-breaking, just comforting life-style porn at its finest. Apparently it is now a permanent fixture.
LACOSTE X KEITH HARING
I’m usually more than the relentless Disney and Keith Haring collabs. Also quite a few, also frequent, it sort of renders it all a bit meaningless for me. That mentioned, I really like the appear of these lairy Lacoste X Keith Haring polos. The collection launches later in the month and this Spanish hyperlink appears to have the finest images.
KITH X ESTÉE LAUDER SKINCARE EDIT
I’ve been drooling more than the KITH X Estée Lauder collaboration all week. A capsule edit of Estée Lauder hero skincare items re-packaged in white with a retro Lauder font, it came in a sci-fi style acrylic vanity case and promptly sold out.
LE KILT X FRED PERRY SS19
The fab Sam McCoach has developed her second Le Kilt collection for Fred Perry. It is all focused about subculture and music, which is no surprise as Fred Perry is incredibly great at championing each. And of course there’s a Spotify playlist to accompany it all also. (P.S. if you haven’t listened to the Chuck D Spotify podcast, ‘Stay Free of charge: The Story of The Clash’ however, it is terrific!)

According to the New York Occasions, “the Vessel is a 150-foot-higher, $200 million, latticed, waste-basket-shaped stairway to nowhere, sheathed in a gaudy, copper-cladded steel… ruinously manspreading beside the Shed.” Yikes. I nonetheless want to go although the pics on Dezeen appear spectacular.
