London pop up: London Pop-ups: pub-takeover

London Pop-ups

Hot 4U – the partnership of chefs Matthew Scott, head chef of Cub, and Eddy Tejada, previously at St John and Silo, is moving from The Plough in Homerton to another pub from the same stable, the Prince Arthur in Forest Road, Dalston, from Monday 12th April, where they will be serving food in the terrace at the front of the pub.  (They will also be staying at The Plough, currently offering takeaways, but opening for diners from 17th May onwards).

I was lucky to have Matthew and Eddy’s roast in November, and I’m really looking forward to having more of their excellent food.  Book now!

“Eddy Tejada (ex-St John and Silo) and Matthew Scott (ex-Head Chef of Cub) are Hot 4 U, one of the breakout success stories of last year. Having burst onto London’s rapidly evolving delivery scene in the throes of the first lockdown, with a weekly-changing menu of inspired originals, the duo is now excited to announce the launch of a new permanent residency, at The Prince Arthur in Hackney. This residency will be in addition to The Plough in Homerton, which they launched just before Christmas.

Taking over The Prince Arthur’s kitchen initially for outdoor dining only from Monday 12th April, Hot 4 U will be cooking an ever-changing menu seven days a week. Located on Forest Road, close to London Fields, The Prince Arthur has 24 covers on outdoor benches that wrap around the grand old corner pub.

Drawing on their huge experience working in London’s most sustainable restaurants, Hot 4 U is a reflection of Matthew and Eddy’s passion for zero waste and high-grade produce, combined with a casual, accessible and, above all, fun approach. From the get-go, Hot 4 U at The Prince Arthur will be a showcase for their distinctive, irreverent style that’s shot from the hip. Dishes on the menu for week one include:

Oysters with hot sauce and fermented potato

Psychedelic burrata with cedrat lemon

Fried prawn heads, yuzu, allium

Fried dough, smoked ricotta, gooseberry escabeche

Pig’s head, anchovy, dandelion

Over at The Plough, Hot 4 U will be serving buns and pints for takeaway only from April 12th. Both are important steps in the right direction towards May 17th when both venues will be fully open for the full Hot 4 U experience. Going forward, The Prince Arthur will be the place to find Hot 4 U’s more refined dishes, befitting of the quiet residential location near London Fields, whereas The Plough will remain the place to let loose – think the famous Hot 4 U bone marrow whisky luge, plus BBQs, basement karaoke parties and even more game-changing cooking.”

When – From 12th April 2021 – Serving every day

But if you’re looking to wander with a little purpose, and with a delicious prize in mind, then it’s worth checking out these pop-ups.

Flor’s pizza pop-up, ASAP Pizza, has been one of the great successes of the pandemic – and it’s currently guest chef galore at the spot in Borough Market. They’re inviting chefs and friends from all over the world, including Aziz Ansari and chef Matty Matheson, to create their own pizzas. And at the end of the week, £3 of every pizza and £1 of every slice will then be donated to a charity of the guest chef’s choice.

5 Best Pop-Ups in London

Guest Article by Cate Trotter, Head of Trends at Insider Trends

London isn’t just the capital of the UK, it’s also a world leader in pop-ups. From newly formed companies to big name brands, all sorts of retailers are embracing the flexible shopping experience.
With new spaces popping up all the time, here are five of the best pop-ups taking place in the city right now. Get ready to be inspired.

IKEA Dining Club

At IKEA’s DIY Dining Club visitors can become chef for a day. The free DIY restaurant lets those lucky enough to be selected prepare brunch, lunch or dinner with up to 20 friends and family before tucking in. For those who don’t manage to grab a spot, IKEA is also running a series of Food for Thought workshops with guest speakers covering all sorts of culinary topics. Plus, there is an IKEA café, shop selling kitchen supplies and virtual reality kitchen experience.

The House of MinaLima

Harry Potter fans will want to take a visit to the House of MinaLima pop-up store/exhibition. It showcases 15 years of graphic design work from the award-winning studio MinaLima – most famously their work on the Harry Potter films. Over two floors are given over to the graphics of the wizarding world, with original props from the film adding to the display. A ground floor shop means visitors can take home prints, prop replicas, postcards and notebooks to recreate the Hogwarts experience at home.

Alfie Douglas

British design brand Alfie Douglas is going back to its roots for a new pop-up to celebrate the launch of its new Zero collection. Held at The Old Truman Brewery, the same place the company started back in 2014, the pop-up sees workshops, parties, demos and the chance to preview the new collection. Products will even be handcrafted live in front of visitors, giving them a unique insight into the creative process. There will also the opportunity for customers to shop and buy, with all sorts of limited edition and VIP offerings.

Walkers Crisp Sarnie Club

To celebrate the launch of six new limited edition sandwich flavoured crisps (in partnership with Heinz), Walkers has opened a pop-up speakeasy style café. Hidden behind a moveable crisp shelf in an unassuming newsagents, the café lets visitors create their own crisp sandwich from a range of ingredients, including breads, fillings and sauces. A password is required though. Once inside there’s plenty of other sandwich-themed sights and activities to enjoy.

Bert & May X Darkroom

Designers of beautiful tiles and interiors Bert & May have partnered with design label Darkroom as part of this year’s London Design Festival. The collaboration, called Split Shift, offers tiles and fabrics in Darkroom’s signature colours and geometric style, plus a new paint colour – Darkroom Black. It’s also seen Bert’s Barge, moored on Regent’s Canal, transformed into a floating Darkroom pop-up store redesigned and decorated in the new products, as well as other Darkroom collections.

As you can see, London is home to an exciting variety of pop-up concepts. They’re not exclusive to the city though – these ideas could easily translate elsewhere, which makes it a must-visit destination for anyone looking for new inspiration.

The 51 best pop-up stores of 2019

Pop-ups are now big business for the world’s biggest retailers. All over the world, pop-ups with a wide variety of purposes are opening in an ever wider variety of spaces. Sometimes it’s to launch a new product range, and sometimes it’s to communicate the values and ethics of a brand. Sometimes they’re simply a way for online businesses or non-retail companies to test out the world of physical retail for the first time.

Whatever the reason, we’ve seen hundreds this year on our travels. Not all of them made a lasting impression though. Here is our pick of the 51 best pop-up stores of 2019 (in alphabetical order):

 

1. Amazon smart home

Amazon partnered with several tech brands to launch a smart home experience pop-up in Westfield, London. Powered and controlled by Alexa, visitors could explore a wide range of smart home devices that were all ingeniously linked together. Among other things, visitors could control and alter kitchen appliances, lights, mirrors, plants, blood pressure monitors and more, simply through voice activation. It’s notable that Amazon, a business famous for ‘hurting the high street’, is now constantly opening and trialling physical retail spaces.

 

2. Banksy ‘GrossDomesticProduct’

Banksy’s ‘GrossDomesticProduct’ pop-up in South London grabbed headlines earlier this year. As you would expect, it was cloaked in mystery. Banksy said the store was opened because of a legal battle with a greetings card company over rights to his own trademarks. The store was designed to replicate the look of an antiques shop, and was filled with various Banksy pieces. According to the infamous street artist, all proceeds went towards buying a new migrant rescue boat.

3. Browns

Farfetch-owned Browns Fashion opened an experimental pop-up in Berlin in November. The pop-up opened in an abandoned supermarket, and was used as a space to test new retail concepts and partnerships across fashion, music and art. Browns Berlin is potentially the first of many ‘roaming retail’ spaces that the brand calls ‘Browns Nomad’ – built on the idea that temporary spaces allow brands to really connect with the neighbourhoods and communities they operate within.

 

4. Carlsberg

Carlsberg launched a sustainability-driven packaging and brand identity pop-up in Singapore this year. The experiential marketing activation drew attention to various eco innovations, including ink that’s made using renewable energy, a wax emulsion applied to bottles to double their lifetime, and also a ‘fresh cap’ that reduces oxidation. Consumer trends suggest customers are becoming increasingly keen to buy from brands who strive to be sustainable in a meaningful way – and this pop-up was a clear reaction to that trend.

 

Image credit – Collector Square

 

5. Collector Square Paris

The vintage clothing platform Collector Square’s Paris pop-up was a big success. It offered a wide-range of second-hand luxury items, including bags, watches and jewelry. It follows in the footsteps of a number of online retailers’ opening physical spaces – with pop-ups being the ideal testing space for bigger physical ambitions and plans.

 

6. Converse Renew

Converse showcased its commitment to sustainability by launching a one-day pop-up earlier this year. The space in Coal Drops Yard supported the launch of its Renew Canvas collection which is made from used plastic bottles. The space itself was created from locally sourced and recycled materials to support the launch. The one-day event also hosted DIY workshops on upcycling garments and provided a space for education and experimentation to further support Converse’s sustainability brand.

 

 

7. Depop Live

E-commerce fashion app Depop invited 50 of its best sellers to set up shop in its temporary space on Broadway in New York. The two-day event was a physical version of the online marketplace. The event was targeted at its Gen Z community of fashion entrepreneurs, with two days of immersive experiences including music, art installations, panels and workshops. There was even a talk on transparency, sustainability and activism with a panel that included designers and sustainability experts.

 

8. DSW

Footwear retailer Designer Shoe Warehouse (DSW) recently opened a seasonal pop-up with a difference. No merchandise could be purchased in the store; instead it was part of a nationwide campaign to give back. Partnering with the charity Be Strong, the focus was on asking customers to donate new and gently used shoes, which were repurposed in children’s uniforms. The store used immersive features to show the impact of the donations. For those that couldn’t make it to the store there was an accompanying digital store, all geared up for likes and shares.

 

Image credit – Facebook

 

9. Facebook Cafe

Earlier this year Facebook opened a pop-up cafe in London. The purpose was to encourage privacy check-ups from Facebook users. The cafe offered free drinks to anyone willing to engage in a privacy check-up – a clear response to criticism over the way Facebook has handled personal data in the past. Many Facebook users suggest they don’t know how to customise their data settings, and this cafe was a smart way of addressing that.

 

Image credit – FILA

 

10. FILA Explore

During the summer, FILA opened several pop-ups around the world to celebrate the launch of a new adventure and sportswear range. The explore collection of sneakers, windbreakers and backpacks, and the pop-ups themselves played host to a number of panel discussions featuring relevant influencers and celebrities.

 

Image credit – Glossier

 

11. Glossier

Cosmetics retailer Glossier opened a pop-up on Floral Street in Covent Garden that was a must-see for fans of the brand. Inspired by British architecture and interiors, the store was decorated in colourful floral wallpaper and carpets which were hand drawn by the in-house creative team. Each room followed a different colour scheme and in true Glossier style they included positive affirmations like ‘you look good’ on the mirrors. There were also lots of fun playful elements such as secret doors taking you from one room to another, adding some theatre to the experience.

 

12. Goop

Gwyneth Paltrow’s lifestyle brand Goop opened a pop-up in Tokyo for its first foray into the Asian market. Fittingly located in the upscale Roppongi district, the store carried Goop’s own brand line of sportswear as well as ready-to-wear, skincare, candles and crystals. Notably, it was home to the first Goop Kitchen, a café concept paying homage to the brand’s roots with California-style fare.

 

Image credit – Gucci

 

13. Gucci apartment

Italian fashion house Gucci created the perfect pop-up to showcase its interiors range. The two-storey ‘apartment’ created for Milan Fashion Week had all the latest additions to its collection. The space was decorated head to toe in the brand’s signature patterns and prints and it was as eccentric and colourful as you would expect. There was also an augmented-reality app to coincide with the opening, through which you could explore historic places across Milan whilst viewing different Décor pieces on-screen as virtual oversized sculptures. It was a fascinating mix of high tech, and high fashion.

 

Image credit – Harrods

 

14. Harrods Re-Told

Harrods Re-Told was a charity pop-up shop with a difference. Luxuriously designed by Harrods, scented by Jo Malone, and stocked with pre-loved designer clothes donated by brands like Stella McCartney and Ralph Lauren, it was a brilliantly ethical and sustainable concept. Best of all, all proceeds went to Harrods’ charity partner NSPCC.

 

Image credit – Tombo Cafe

 

15. Hello Kitty Cafe

Hello Kitty’s cafe pop-up in London runs until February 2020. It coincides with the 45th anniversary of the much-loved brand, and features a menu built around all the colourful characters. It’s located inside the Tombo cafe in Fitzrovia, and already drawing big crowds for the holiday season.

 

Image credit – HOT:SECOND

 

16. HOT:SECOND

This fascinating and short-lived pop-up in London offered digital garment experiences via world’s first ‘digital clothes’ store, and customers were encouraged to bring in an unwanted item of clothing. In return, they were allowed to try on a garment digitally from a number of leaders in the digital clothes field – but couldn’t actually purchase it.

The digital testing happened in pods hooked up with cameras and magic mirrors. Customers could take a photo of them wearing the digital design which they could then share online. Customisation stations were also in place to upcycle the used items customers brought in. The pop-up acted as a testing space for digital clothing, as retailers and technologists try to work out how it can be effectively monetised.

 

Image credit – IKEA

 

17. IKEA Fitting Rooms

The home and furniture giant joined forces this year with Virgil Abloh to launch a pop-up in London for its collaboration on the Markerad collection – which consists of furniture and accessories designed for IKEA. The space featured ‘Fitting Rooms’ which included various items from the collection so that Instagrammable moments could be captured.

 

Image credit – Jacamo

 

18. Jacamo pop-up pub

Jacamo’s pop-up pub in London was an interesting social experiment by the men’s clothing brand. It offered a ‘safe space’ for men to discuss their issues, and to get a sense of what the 2020 man would be. Men could claim a drink on the house, listen to live music, get a free trim from the in-house barber, or speak to one of the stylists in residence. It even featured celebrity visitors, including Freddie Flintoff.

 

19. Jo Malone fragrance exhibition

Jo Malone’s interactive fragrance exhibition in London made big headlines this year. The idea was to create an immersive experience that told the stories of the brand, and the perfumes. It included scent booths, photo booths and a video projection room, as well as workshops that allowed customers to try out marbling and glass tinting. General access was free, but demand was so high that access was limited. There could well be a future in perfume exhibitions.

 

20. KitKat Sake

Nestle Japan unveiled a pop-up ‘bar’ at Craft Sake Week in Roppongi Hills, Japan, earlier this year. KitKats and sake may not be a common culinary pairing but that didn’t stop it happening. By answering five different questions, Nestle’s platform used AI to decide which of the 15 KitKats on offer was for you. Customers also received a complimentary sake to go with it. For the 11 days the pop-up was open there were 10 new sake selections offered each day. It’s a great example of a brand having fun with tech, and using it to drive footfall.

 

Image credit – Klarna

 

21. Klarna

Payment provider Klarna set up a pop-up in Covent Garden, London, earlier this year designed to show retailers how injecting experiential features into physical stores can create closer engagement with customers. The immersive pop-up featured lots of brands and products that were previously only available online. From fashion and beauty to interiors and technology, brands such as Asos, Cambridge Satchel Company and Swoon came together to create an inspiring shopping experience. The products were all for sale alongside a programme of events that included styling sessions, DJ sets and competitions.

 

22. Lego art gallery

Lego launched an art gallery pop-up this year in London. It was a celebration of Lego’s heritage, which featured an exclusive collectible wooden model (Lego began by making wooden toys in Denmark in the 1930s). The pop-up was hugely popular and operated with 30-minute reservable slots. Many retail experts think bookable, exclusive experiences will play a big part in the future of retail.

 

Image credit – Lidl

 

23. Lidl Chateaux Noir

Lidl is well known for its cheap but quality alcohol – and a new pop-up experience in London called Lidl Chateaux Noir brought its customers closer to the wines they love. The experience started in the Discombobulation chamber – a candy cane striped space that throws off the senses. Visitors were then moved to the Cellar Noir where they sampled the wines in the dark served by waiters wearing night vision goggles.

Lidl wanted to inspire customers to learn about wine quality through taste – and not through bottle design or branding. It’s a great concept, and brilliantly all proceeds went to the NSPCC.

 

Image credit – London Selfie Factory

 

24. London Selfie Factory

The London Selfie Factory pop-up in Westfield was a dream experience for Instagram lovers. It encompassed 20 different dramatic backdrops or booths for quirky social media images. Among the most popular was a bath of pink balls and a 1950s diner. A circuit around the space cost £10 a ticket, and with similar spaces popping up all around the world it seems experience as entertainment is still a big winner.

 

25. Louis Vuitton

Louis Vuitton’s pop-up in New York was most notable for the colour scheme – every inch of the space, inside and out, was painted in neon green. The space featured a series of exclusive products designed for this space. And to entice customers, a mailbox, fire hydrant, and bicycle further up the street were all painted in the same bright green to extend the experience outside of the store.

 

Image credit – Magnum

 

26. Magnum Pleasure Store

Magnum’s ‘design your own’ Pleasure Store pop-up returned this year in London. The space allows customers to design Magnum ice creams to their own specifications – and many of the creations became Instagram hits! The space is as much about engaging visitors to the store as it is creating some social buzz. The store also played host to a number of cultural events.

 

27. Matchesfashion.com yacht

The luxury fashion retailer took its brand out to sea for 2019. It teamed up with Pellicano Hotels to set sail along the coast of Italy on a 1930s yacht. The event kicked off at the brand’s London townhouse, 5 Carlos Place, where the boutique was kitted out like the II Pellicano yacht.

The yacht itself was transformed into a resort-wear shop and over the course of eight days it made stops at three of Pellicano’s hotels, allowing customers to explore some of these leading tourist spots. Luxury retail experiences don’t come much more luxurious than this.

 

28. Miniwiz

A fascinating pop-up opened in Sardinia this year. It didn’t accept money; customers purchased items with plastic they brought in to be repurposed. The store only sold items made in store from donated materials such as coffee cups, water bottles and shopping bags. There was also an associated app where customers built up credit to put towards items in the store. This concept also appeared at London Design Festival and Milan Design Week.

 

 

29. Moncler House of Genius

Moncler opened a new ‘House of Genius’ pop-up in Tokyo this year, with other temporary spaces launched in Milan and Paris too. The focus of the space was on live events and in-store creative sessions. It was designed to look like a gallery rather than a retail space, and had a flexible design that allowed events to easily take over. Increasingly, pop-ups are seen as a marketing and brand awareness opportunity rather than a means of driving sales, and this was a classic example.

 

30. MUJI

Muji launched a long-running design and retail pop-up store in New York earlier this year. Open until January 2020, the SoHo space aims to show off the brand’s design history by highlighting classic archive MUJI products. It also taps into MUJI’s graphic design chops with an exhibition of its posters, including work by Ikko Tanaka. The space shows just how much MUJI has evolved over the years with video screens showing off some of its latest global initiatives, such as the MUJI hotel and MUJI diner.

 

Image credit – Museum of Ice Cream

 

31. The Museum of Ice Cream

Inspired by the founder Maryellis Bunn’s dream of jumping into a pool of sprinkles, at the MOI you can actually jump into a giant pool of sprinkles! The life-size pool is bubblegum pink and has slides to launch yourself into the pool for that ultimate action shot. The creators believe ice cream to be a symbol of joy and have created a space that ignites all five senses. Everywhere you turn in this wonderland you will find a photo opportunity, from the swing against a backdrop of floor to ceiling whipped cream cans, to the sit-on unicorns or jewelled elephants. It’s heaven for kids and Instagrammers alike.

 

32. New Balance Pub

Sportswear brand New Balance launched a pub to accompany its sponsorship of the London Marathon. Called The Runaway, it only traded in the currency of miles ran, rather than money, to incentivise people to go for a run. Using the Strava app runners logged their miles which were then exchanged at the pub for drinks and food. The central London location was fitted out like a traditional English pub with dartboards and jukeboxes. It created a lot of buzz, and was a real smart way of bringing runners together around the brand.

 

33. Paco Rabanne Express Delivery

Paco Rabanne’s Christmas pop-up in London has caught everyone’s attention. That’s mainly because it’s housed in an unusual location: Wapping’s hydraulic power station. The express delivery pop-up includes a series of bespoke installations, a wind tunnel, and visitors are offered their own safety deposit box style mailbox containing exclusive fragrances. Opening pop-ups in unusual locations is an increasingly popular way of creating brand buzz and driving footfall.

 

34. Palace pop-up

Palace Skateboards announced an amazing pop-up earlier this year that was housed inside a Shanghai nightclub. It hosted the exclusive release of the Juventus and Adidas collaboration, and was a key milestone for the British brand as it extends further into the Asian market following the opening of its Tokyo store in 2018. A shop in a nightclub might seem odd within European retail, but in Shanghai’s innovative scene it fitted in perfectly.

 

Image credit – Cafe OLED

 

35. Pantone/LG

The Pantone Colour Institute and electronics company LG teamed up for a pop-up café in SoHo, New York. Café OLED is named after LG’s Organic Light-Emitting Diode TVs which hang on the walls displaying work by multi-disciplinary artist David McLeod, and inspired by Pantone’s summer 2019 colour palette. Local baristas served flavoured latte’s inspired by the four colours of the summer. The space was purely a showroom with no TVs for sale.

 

36. Patagonia activist cafe

Patagonia launched a pop-up cafe in London this year that played host to climate activist training courses. Training sessions on activism, workshops on carbon literacy and seminars on habitat conservation were all hosted in the trendy Broadway Market location. It also acted as a lending library for important books written about climate change. It was a really smart way of advocating Patagonia’s values, and a good example of how brands can do much more to showcase their commitment to sustainability.

Electronic payment company Paypal launched a pop-up on one of New York’s busiest shopping streets, Fifth Avenue for the holiday season. It unveiled a series of window displays to support small businesses. The browsing was limited to window shopping but there were QR codes to scan which directed customers to the small businesses’ websites. For the lucky SMEs involved, this was a rare chance to get some coverage on one of the world’s most sought-after retail locations.

38. Polaroid Lab

Polaroid opened a pop-up space in NYC for the first time ever to promote Polaroid Lab – a product that allows users to create Polaroids directly from their smartphone cameras. In the age of digital, this pop-up was all about promoting the wonders of analogue. Visitors enjoyed an immersive installation that featured AR content embedded into each image. The pop-up also hosted photography workshops to build appreciation for pre-digital photography and all the craft involved.

 

39. Pride

A Pride in London pop-up store was launched in Seven Dials in conjunction with London LGBT+ Community Pride CIC. The store was curated in partnership with Mary Portas’ creative design agency Portas. The street party themed space marked the anniversary of the Stonewall Uprising – when members of the LGBT+ community demonstrated against oppression in Greenwich Village, New York City. Posters and archive footage from the riots were used as inspiration for the store. The retail space sold Pride in London merchandise as well as Pride Gin and Pride-themed gifts from Asos. But the store was also designed as a community space, and hosted a programme of events to allow people to connect with Pride.

 

40. PUMA

PUMA launched an innovative pop-up store at Protein Studio in Shoreditch, London. To promote the PUMA LQD CELL trainer, it used interactive experiences to boost mental and physical health. The space was split into a calm zone (breathing exercises and meditation), focused zone (fast paced rhythmic exercises) and energy zone (HIIT exercises). It was a smart concept, connecting its new product with a relevant and uplifting experience in one space.

 

41. Revlon

Revlon’s 24-hr beauty salon pop-up in London was another great example of how a pop-up can help to promote a specific product. The product being launched was the ‘life proof’ ColorStay foundation range, noted for its durability. So the pop-up, which was open morning, noon and night, highlighted how the product was designed for long wear. Many people reserved slots, and all kinds of services were offered including speedy manicures, pedicures and hair styling, along with make-up artists applying foundation.

42. Ruinart Champagne hotel

Fashion designer Jonathan Anderson and e-commerce platform Clos 19 teamed up with Ruinart Champagne to create a pop-up hotel in Notting Hill, London. Open for only 10 nights, the one-room Hotel 1729 offered dinner, bed and breakfast and Ruinart champagne on tap. Anderson, Creative Director of luxury fashion brand Loewe, took inspiration from the House of Ruinart in Reims where he explored the vineyards and cellars. The goal was to take customers on that journey, telling the history of the brand throughout their time at the hotel. The experience was priced at £1200 for two guests but the lucky two were able to invite up to six guests for dinner to share the experience with them.

43. Sainsbury’s ‘meat-free’ butchers

Sainsbury’s ‘meat free’ butchers shop pop-up in London was another space that really caught our eye. It coincided with World Meat Free Week, and featured a variety of Sainsbury’s meat-free products. There were lots of free samples on offer, and experts were on hand to offer tips and recipes. Pop-ups like this are an excellent way of showing that a brand stands for something beyond commercial ambition.

 

44. Self-Portrait

Womenswear retailer Self Portrait launched a stunning pop-up in the heart of SoHo, New York – it’s first physical retail space in the United States. White and pink floral lace hung from six metre high wooden frames to create a feeling of exploration and discovery as you entered the space. The pink lace also represented pieces in the collection at the time of opening. The immersive space also offered limited edition items exclusive to the pop-up.

 

45. Sonos

In celebration of its collaboration with Google Assistant, Sonos launched an ambitious pop-up this year in Soho, London called ‘The Brilliant Sound Experience’. It was an immersive, multi-sensory experience that allowed visitors to not only hear music, but feel and see it. It featured two rooms: one which covered the structure of a song, and another that examined the emotion of music. Elements of songs by The National and Slowthai were broken down and turned into physical shapes. And visitors were encouraged to wear an EEG headset that recorded and displayed brainwaves in reaction to the songs. It was a bold, strange and genuinely ambitious project that showed retail spaces really can be anything.

46. The Arrivals

Direct-to-consumer outerwear and accessories retailer The Arrivals returned to NYC with its annual pop-up this year. This time, the theme was extreme climate. Designed in collaboration with Brooklyn design strategists Early Spring, the store was divided up into three separate zones. These zones represented different microclimates – sun, snow and rain – and had the coordinating apparel to match. The space was staffed by seasoned guides who gave customers valuable insight about the merchandise and its purpose.

47. The Skimm

Millennial focused media company The Skimm opened a pop-up in New York that helped to solve holiday shopping needs with an omnichannel approach. It has helped customers to find the perfect gift, with over 150 different items across fitness, fashion and home decor – and is open right up until Christmas eve.

The space also features in-store programming and events, plus a ‘recharging’ lounge sponsored by STARZ for weary shoppers to relax in. Another partner, Batiste, is hosting a hair refresh station where stylists
revitalise customer hairstyles. It’s a smart move for the brand which already has millions of readers who look to it for recommendations.

48. Tiffany Ice Rink

Tiffany & Co. is celebrating the launch of its fragrance with a pop-up ice rink in London’s Covent Garden. The winter wonderland can be accessed via a Tiffany Bridge that’s inspired by Central Park. It features giant Tiffany blue boxes, sparkling snow, and the skating rink itself. Launched in November, it continues until Boxing Day and is ticketed, but some spots are available on the day.

 

49. Tommy Hilfiger

Tommy Hilfiger launched a pop-up on Rockaway Beach in New York this year that focused on personalisation and hyper-localisation. Tie-dye customisation was a central offer for customers, with lots of flexibility around how it was delivered. Almost all products could be tie-dyed, either on-site or through pre-ordering. Photographers were also on hand to take professional pictures of customers in their new gear. Tommy has a long-term strategy to open lots of pop-ups across multiple locations that are each focused on local customer interests and customisation.

 

50. Westfield Trending

Westfield London experimented this year with a fascinating three-day pop-up shopping initiative in partnership with AI trend experts Next Atlas. Using the power of machine learning, Next Atlas tracked over 400,000 global ‘influencers’ to find out what fashion items were trending each day. A list of trending items was then given to a Westfield stylist who hunted out those items from the entire shopping centre each morning. It was a really interesting attempt to bring online and offline together, and possibly holds a clue about the future of shopping centres.

51. Wrangler

The acclaimed jeans retailer Wrangler opened a shop and recording studio in Soho, London for five weeks. Its latest collection, ‘Icons’, brought together six of Wrangler’s most classic designs – and this pop-up was designed to promote the brand’s iconic status. Shoppers really did share the small space with bands as the recording studio wasn’t just a gimmick. Wrangler thinks style and music go hand in hand, so this pop-up was a reflection of the brand’s identity. In a world where physical retail is increasingly being used for marketing rather than selling, this hip pop-up made perfect sense.

The Day – New London pop-up shop carries clothing and prints from local artists

New London — A group of local artists and designers have opened a pop-up shop in downtown New London, a project one has referred to as putting the band back together.

Frank Marchany (also known as DJ Frank Lo), Denny Rivera (also known as Klashwon) and Cristin Rivera opened The Annex at 60 Bank St. in mid-February, selling their art alongside products from Semra Apothec Co. and work from an artist going by the name wormnlct.

Denny Rivera is a visual artist whose murals can be found in Winthrop STEM Elementary Magnet School, C.B. Jennings International Elementary Magnet and on the back of the building next door to The Annex, facing the train tracks.

Cristin Rivera, who is married to Denny, designs and sews clothing under the brand C*kin, which she describes as “femme comfort.” Marchany founded the apparel brand The Famous New London.

At 60 Bank St., The Annex is filling part of the gap between NoRA Cupcake Company closing its location there last year and a new business coming later this year. Marchany and the Riveras will be there at least through May, and they are looking for a permanent space.

The Annex hearkens back to 2007, when Marchany and Denny Rivera opened a sneaker shop/art gallery on Green Street, called Muse. Two years later, the Riveras opened a boutique called Aticc; both closed in 2010, before the Riveras moved to New York City. They moved back to the area in 2017 and now live in Niantic.

“I always thought it if I did a smaller offshoot of Muse, I wanted to call it The Annex, kind of like if you were in high school, you had the main and you had the smaller high school, which was the annex,” Marchany said in a video made for The Annex. “Somehow, we got lucky and this fell in my lap, and now we put the band back together. It’s cool.”

Under The Famous New London brand, he’s selling hats, hoodies, sweatpants and crew-neck shirts in different colors. Marchany collaborates on designs with Patrick Regan of Faire Harbour Art, and prints are available of designs of city landmarks like Ledge Light and the Cross Sound Ferry.

Marchany said The Famous New London started as a way to make “cool stuff that was aesthetically pleasing but didn’t make me look like a mascot, so you can rep your city.”

Some of the finds from the C*kin clothing line include T-shirt dresses, paisley printed leggings, flowy crop tops, sparkly items and shirts printed with artwork by Cristin’s brother, Kevin Gallagher, and by Denny Rivera. Most are in the $40 to $100 range. Cristin Rivera also makes and sells face masks.

Commenting on New London’s eclectic vibe, she said, “I can make anything I want to make here and somebody will like it.”

The artist wormnlct sells T-shirts, hoodies and onesies with images of her signature worm — “not a hot dog!” the artist points out — that range from $12 to $35, along with worm prints and succulents with popsicle-stick worms.

The Annex also carries products from Semra Apothec Co, such as soaps in scents including jasmine and patchouli, orange vanilla, and geranium, and lip balms.

90,000 London pop-up makes sandwiches with food destined for landfill

Since a whopping third of the products we make is wasted, there has never been a better time to think about how we can use our resources more efficiently. Now, a pop-up store in London hopes to change the way we think about food and help reduce our carbon footprint.

A post posted by Rubies in the Rubble (@rubiesintherubble) on June 1, 2017 at 2:34 am PDT

The iconic Selfridges Food Hall will host Surplus Pop-Up from today until June 30th.For as little as £ 5, visitors can sample a wide variety of sandwiches made with commonly thrown away ingredients. Expect curly cucumbers, ripe blue cheese, oddly shaped avocados, and crackers made with leftover juice pulp.

Popup is operated by Rubies in the Rubble, a company that makes condiments and canned foods from food that would otherwise be wasted. In the UK alone, 15 million tons of food and drink is thrown away every year, often for reasons like weird shape, overripe or simply because supermarkets have ordered more than they need.

This is where the company comes into play. They work directly with farmers to buy up their surplus produce from the landfill. In March of this year, they estimate they saved the equivalent of 6,708 kg of carbon dioxide by simply turning the extra food into ketchup and condiments.

Companies around the world are looking for creative and sustainable ways to use our surplus food, and even celebrity chefs are solving this problem. Massimo Bottura made headlines last year when he turned leftover food from Rio’s Olympic Village into delicious meals for people in need.London-based Hackney Brewery has also won acclaim for turning the city’s unused bread into beer.

The Surplus Pop-up will be open every day until June 30 from 11 am to 8 pm at Selfridges, Oxford Street.

Boomf now offers a range of gifts: Boomf “bomb” (a personalized greeting card that pops out of an envelope) and Boomf “Flutter” (a personalized greeting card with a butterfly flying out).

Background

Boomf was founded in November 2013 by James Middleton and Andy Bell. [1] Middleton previously founded Nice Cakes, which specialized in custom baked goods. [2] [3] Bell previously founded Mint Digital, [1] which created StickyGram (now Sticky9), the Instagram magnet company that sold PhotoBox. [4] Boomf combines elements from both directions.

History

Boomf raised over US $ 1 million in 2014 with the support of a number of business angels, including Nick Jenkins, Moon Pig Founder, Duncan Jennings and Matt Wheeler. [1]

The Boomf was launched in November 2013 with no mention of Middleton’s involvement to ensure a discreet launch. [5] In January 2014, Boomph announced Middleton’s involvement, believing it would be impossible to keep it secret for a long time. [2]

The first reaction to Boomf was distrust; at Fool listener NPR section Wait, wait … don’t tell me , one listener thought it more plausible that Vladimir Putin was brother Igor, who invented a pill to get rid of the smell of old people, and then the brother of the Duchess of Cambridge founded his own company for the production of marshmallows. [6]

However, Boomf shipped 2 tons of marshmallows in its first year and raised £ 100,000 ($ 168,000) in the first three months. [7]
