Poping up in Brick Lane Soon
COLETTE, the chicest shop in gay Paris is heading across the channel for one month only - well the 26th November to the 3rd January to be precise. Its going to be a shop and exhibition space all rolled into one, focusing on cutting edge Japanese style. I visited Colette when I went to Paris two years ago and fell in love with it; it even taught my very frugal fella to appreciate the fine art of a Marc Jacobs suit. I really do hope Colette's epic window displays transverse the channel too, they really are a sight to behold and it would be very selfish of the Parisian to keep them to themselves.
This is just one of the many things this festive season that are going on around Brick Lane in the and more specifically the Old Truman Brewery. There will also be a Vintage pop-up market which I will be rummaging through with abandon this weekend, channeling the 40's glamour in my latest read The Girls of Slender Means.
