On Monday afternoon I took myself off to Carnaby Street to visit the Lulu Guinness Pop-Up shop which opened earlier that day. Unfortunately I was too busy to make the photocall at 1pm so I missed the better photo opportunity with Erin O'Connor, Lulu Guinness, Harold Tillman etc. but I still wanted to have a mooch round.
Clean, simple and girly, this store features a limited selection of products including rows of the famous Lulu Guinness Lips Clutch in loads of different colours. There was a couch in the shape of lips and Lulu's kisses all over the walls. There was even a laptop linked up to the blog where I posted a comment on behalf of Sketchbook Magazine.
My favourite thing in the shop was funnily enough not a handbag or cute necklace but a £10 mug - plain white with a red lipstick mark!
Lulu is donating a percentage of the sales to students studying the historical and contemporary practice of fashion at London College of Fashion. She launched a scholarship for MA Accessories/Artefact Design last summer, to celebrate her 20th anniversary.
The store 'Kissed by Lulu Guinness' is open for a limited period, closing on 22nd Feb.
Catch it quick: 65-67 Broadwick Street (Off Carnaby Street).
