I love London's newest addition to the world of Paul Smith on Marylebone 
High Street. This stunning store is home to both the men and 
women's accessory collections, as well as 
the most divine "stuff"!!!! 

 

The front of the store is classically modern; the herringbone floor, wood shelves, and the clean white walls are a perfect foil for the men's collection. The masculinity up-front is in stark contrast to the backroom .....  with it's updated contemporary cabbage rose wallpaper, floral chintz circular settee,and pale pink rug reflecting the modern femininity that is the theme of the women's collection.

 

The great "stuff" includes fabulous books, a fantastic striped leather leash that is calling my dog's name, a collection of eccentric Lladro ceramics by Spanish designer Jaime Hayon that belong on my library shelves, and framed rock 'n roll posters that hung in my brother's room in the 60's ........ real Jimi Hendrix memorabilia!!!!!!

 

This store is an "accessorator's" delight, from accessories to accessories!!!!

Paul Smith Reworks an Iconic Coffee Pot!!!!!!

To celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Danish brand Stelton, British fashion designer Paul Smith was given the task of reworking danish designer Arne Jacobsen's iconic Cylinda Collection. Smith has selected a range of 12 colors, from bright to pastel, to color the handles of the stainless steel coffee pots. In addition, he has created a collection, called Dot, of stainless steel bowls with 54 different colored inside surfaces and lids.

 

"I was very flattered when asked to work on this project, but equally nervous as I have such respect for this iconic collection by Arne Jacobsen.  To tell the truth I was unsure whether I should take the task of reworking such a beautiful, timeless set of designs. However, once I realized that I would just give a new lease of life through color, I felt more comfortable." Paul Smith

 

For me this is a match made in heaven .......I adore Arne Jacobsen's "Danish Modern" style .... I live with "The Egg", a chair to die for!!!  And, Paul Smith is the ultimate "Color King" ...... his iconic stripe pattern is this "accessorstors" dream ....... shopping bag, wallet, briefcase, and especially the trim around the seams of the most fabulous black leather gloves you have ever seen ..... which I own!!!!! So, I think that the only decision I will have to make in April, when this collection arrives in the stores is ....... which color handle do I want, because....... it is way tooooo piggy to get all 12!!!!!
