…and just in time!! As today is the official Opening Ceremony of the 2012 Summer Olympics, what better way to celebrate than with the launch of the Opening Ceremony pop up shop…
Last Friday, Opening Ceremony opened their pop up shop in Covent Garden and omg this boutique is amazing! I mean would we expect anything less from the OC team?!? With two stories packed to the rim with mens, womens and bit of kids, (not to mention a ton of limited edition British pieces), we are crying our eyes out we are not on a plane heading across the pond!
Expect to find Alexander Wang, Rodarte, OC Collection, offerings from Brit designers Marques Almeida, Maarten van der Horst, Christopher Shannon, and Shaun Samson to name a few. There are also Olympic inspired pieces from House of Holland, Norma Kamali, and Band of Outsiders! AND look out for their collaboration with Topshop along with an additional collabo with Addias. And no need to worry, this pop up shop will actually become a permanent fixture when OC moves two doors down to their official space in October.
So what do we want to get our hands on?!? The limited edition gold leather PS11 bag! Inspired by the one and only GOLD medal, OC and Proenza Schouler teamed up for a London exclusive. This is the kind of Olympic souvenir we want!!
If you’re in London, this is definitely THE boutique to shop! And while you’re there, say whats up to Michael Phelps…only three more medals to be the most decorated athlete in history!! GO USA!
