Colette Goes East
24 November 2009
EAST London is set to get an injection of Parisian style this week as The Cube Store unveils Colette's first ever UK pop-up shop at The Old Truman Brewery's Boilerhouse. As well as a range of covetable Colette-style trinkets, the space will also host a series of events - from screening Japanese films to live art installations - but doing your Christmas shopping there might not be as simple as it sounds.
To gain entry you must apply online (not as simple as it sounds either), or look out for Nissan Cube cars (the reason for the pop-up), at venues and events around the city and then ask the driver for a membership card to admit you.
If you make it inside, designers like Mary Katrantzou, Irina Shaposhnikova, Yazbukey and E2 will be selling their wares, whilst architect Olivier Vadrot, conceptual designer Jerszy Seymour and graffiti artists Random International, amongst others, will be treating you to a visual feast.
