No one does british cool better than Paul Smith, so when in London, one of the first stops we make is at one of his many magpie shops.
Located at 9 Albermarle Street, Smith's Mayfair space is a true treasure trove for vintage afficionados, housing quirky one-off finds such as jewellery, art, objects and furniture, all sourced around the world and beautifully curated in an eye-catching gallery / old style ambiance.
Miles away from the mass produced plastic objects we see in most shops today, its selection is truly unique and personal - new life is brought into forgotten pieces, which after a little touch here and there, are transformed into highly desirable ones.
We absolutely love it, but even if one doesn't have an eclectic bone in one's body, this Alladdin's cave of a shop is definitely worth a visit for its curiosity factor alone.
