Fabulous Contributing Editor, Rollergirl: Gives Good Shop Chat

Recession schmecession, I’m having none of it. What with the  

Convenience Store pop-up at the St Martins Lane Hotel, the impending  

Jeanette’s in Redchurch Street and the flurry of Joseph store re- 

tweaks, I’m on a one-girl retail rescue mission. Joseph unveiled its  

second store posh-up on Tuesday with lots of music, mwah-ing and  

general merrymaking going down in its Bond Street boutique. What I  

learnt:

 

1) The padded changing rooms, snazzy sofas and ‘moving  

installations’ (AKA conveyor belt) were all exclusively designed by  

Tom Dixon.

 

2)  Staff have been amusing themselves no end playing with said  

conveyor belt, loading it with chiffon frocks, setting it to “fast”  

and watching them whizz across the ceiling at 100mph.

 

3) The leg-o-mutton sleeve is back courtesy of a particularly lush  

Joseph ribbed sloppy Joe.

 

4 ) Barbara Windsor was one of the first celebrities through the  

doors. “She’s a regular. She bought some Joseph trousers and designer  

tops,” confirmed store manager, Jenny.

 

5) Exclusive! Film-maker John Bland (who made the Joseph-being- 

revamped film on a loop in the changing cubicles) revealed he is  

putting the finishing touches to his Todd Lynn documentary. Next stop,  

the Sundance Film Festival…

 

6) And finally, the canapes were top-notch – so tastebud-tingling I  

refused to leave without the caterers’ card. DeWintons, I salute your  

fritatas!

  1. I like blogs like this one, I am sure you put an effort on it to keep it up. Nice post, grazie mille .

  2. Jordan donned this pair of shoes, the Nike oxygen Jordan XIX, all through the 2003-2004 NBA season. This pair of sneakers is definitely an awesome offer over an eyesore to say the least. The the front element belonging to the tongue arrives up way as well high, and that fence like design and design going lower it is terrible. There may be considered a velcro strap, that is not assisting the design’s situation either. It helps make the element it is linked to actual physical appearance like just one huge flap is covering the true shoe. It is challenging to discover something excellent to say concerning the way in which this pair looks. This just one could have benefited from the vital idea change.
