Restaurant tips from London!
When two of our designers went to London to do some trend spotting (not envious at all!) they went to eat at two different pizza places. Both restaurants have nice interiors and serves great food and are even located within the same area. If you want a more quiet place you should go for Story Deli, and if you want some more buzz Pizza East is the choise!
Tomorrow I will share some tips on vintage shopping in London!

Some colleagues of mine went for a trip to London looking for inspiration, new trends and influences. Searching for this certainly makes you hungry… So here they share a restaurant tips to all of you: Wahaca’s.
This is a Mexican restaurant inspired by a market place where you can eat reasonably priced, fresh and flavorsome food. Everything is ethically sourced and you can preferably share tacos and quesadillas, washed down with fresh hibiscus water or a zingy cocktail.
And make sure you leave room for churros - crispy sugared doughnuts - that come with a hot chocolate dipping sauce. I’ve heard it’s a bliss!

I know, another exhibition tip, (and from London again...) but this one isalso really great!
This exhibition, called "Museum of Everything", has left Primrose Hill and travelled to Selfridges where “Exhibition #4” occupies over 15,000 square feet, making it the most expansive art collaboration in the history of the store. Here you can experience over two hundred drawings, paintings and sculptures by international contemporary artists!
Sound interesting!? It’s open until October 25th!

One of our designers recently visited The Saatchi Gallery in London which right now is showing an interesting exhibition called “The Shape of Things to Come”. 20 leading and emerging international artists working in sculpture today are exhibiting their creations in everything from granite monoliths to neon structures to buckled cars and stuffed horse hide.
This is the first time that the gallery space has been devoted entirely to three-dimensional works... If you are in London, why not pay a visit?
