Snogs, Labbits and potted handbags

Here's some photos of a recent trip to London.

Of notable toy/design interest was the pop-up shop of Kidrobot in Selfridges with the wonderfully inflatable Kozik Smorkin' Labbit (want one) and their window displays with lots of mini labbits (want them too).

I also bumped into a heavily Japanese design-influenced frozen yogurt eaterie called Snog - in South Kensington - where I sampled the green tea frozen yogurt (super yumm) and had to negotiate round a giant Kubrick Bear and several American students. I particularly liked their seating stools which were made of plastic but looked like heavy lace.

Last creative mention goes to the amazing vintage dress store in Kingly Court 'Fur Coat, No Knickers', where I was knocked out by the quality of these dresses which would not look out of place on Audrey Hepburn or Miss Dita (but unfortunately had nasty price tags), they are utterly stunning and it's was lovely to see such appreciated dresses in a suitably lovely setting (including their handbag window boxes which were potted up with roses).
