Here we are unpacking our great new range of retro glassware. It's all American diner style with that characteristically thick bevelled glass. We're all going a bit gooey and nostalgic over the milk jugs, desert dishes, ice-cream sundae and milkshake glasses. Make ours a vanilla with a cherry on top please!
Womenswear is looking especially lovely at the moment thanks to Laura, our VM. Themed on the distinctive style of Charleston farmhouse and the Bloomsbury Group, we have a corner of the upper floor adorned with faded photographs, scores of music, dogeared books and other memorabilia harking back to the bohemian paradise that was Charleston. Altogether a very fitting backdrop to our new autumn winter collections due to be released over the coming weeks.
More exciting times here at The Hambledon. Our super talented new visual merchandiser Laura has just unveiled her first installation and it really is rather special. Head to our new men's denim pop-up shop and you'll find a wall of brightly coloured placards advocating our superb men's denim ranges - Edwin, A.P.C and Nudie - and other such words of wisdom. Inspired by the 1968 french students revolt, the message is fight for fit, fly your fly and sois jeune et tais toi, be young and shut up!
It was all change yesterday as the "main run" - the big wall of shelves on the ground floor - got an all new colourful look. We had a nice big delivery from Rice which we just had to show off to full effect. Lindsey whipped round and worked her magic, and hey presto, we have shelves full of fabulous new homewares.
