4O WiNKS continues to attract a stellar crowd… last week we had the lovely lads from Kasabian shooting a wonderful Alice in Wonderland cover here for NME (due out next week). The boys from Leicester were a total delight, and have a new album coming out on the 8th of June called West Ryder Pauper Lunatic Asylum, so make sure you bag a copy!!

Unique and hard to find US designer brands in London by Kelli

Brian Reyes

Brian Reyes

I couldn’t resist! Thanks to this week’s issue of Drapers, I found OXYGEN in central London! The shop carries collections from about 20 US designers and other exclusive lines from all over. Two of my favorites are Brian Reyes (pictured above) and Doo.Ri (pictured below). It feels like shopping in NYC  so I suggest giving it a look next time you’re shopping in the Oxford Street area. Find it at 38 Eastcastle Street W1.

INTERIOR DESIGN SECRETS
People are always asking me where I source things from…. like every interior designer, I have my ‘little black book’ stuffed with contacts I have built up over the years, but there are always going to be times when even I can’t find what I’m looking for. Where do I go to for help? The answer is the fabulous ‘House Directory’ – a one-stop guide to everything from the blooming obvious to the seriously off-beat. Aimed at everyone who is passionate about interior design (trade professionals and general public), this easy-to-use directory will help you find what you are searching for in seconds. If you haven’t already discovered it, then check it out soon!! Highly recommended…
