The Contemporary Collective – London Edition Launches at Arnotts
Arnotts will welcome ‘The Contemporary Collective – London Edition’ this spring, a pop up shop featuring 30 new and innovative brands curated in London for the first time by the British Embassy and the Department of International Trade.
From February 20th until March 5th the Contemporary Collective will see a diverse selection of exciting brands come to life in Arnotts, curated from a range of designers and experts skilled in a number of different crafts, providing lots of gifting (and self-gifting!) inspiration.
Food is a key element of the collective, with gin and tonic themed chocolate truffles and popping candy from The London Chocolate Company, flavoured chocolate bars from Urban Village Chocolates, artisan jam from Piddington Jam and unique sweets and treats by Ask Mummy & Daddy Ltd. Josoblu Ltd, a brand which features stylish reusable shopping bags which you can fill with all your edible goodies will also feature.
Home brands within the collective include Timea Sido Ceramics, an award winning designer who has been handcrafting intricate white earthenware ceramic objects since 2012, as well as vintage botanical illustrator Jen Rowland and her striking pieces of art, and printed textile designer Kouamo. Wildash London is also featured, a luxury soft furnishings and home accessories brand with a range of throws, bed runners, rugs and cushions made from the very finest, fashion grade Toscana shearling.
The whole family are catered for in the collective, with Pall Mall Barbers offering a selection of hair styling, beard and shaving products for men, and Cozyglo featuring unique nightlights for children’s bedrooms. Even the family pets are considered, with Teddy Maximus offering luxury dog accessories for the stylish dog owner – as seen in Vogue, Conde Nast Traveller and Tatler. The brand features everything from cosy dog beds, luxury leads and carriers as well as neckerchiefs, bow ties and toys.
For those in search of a healthy body and mind, Chris James Mind & Body is a premium wellness brand offering a solution to finding year round wellness with ’12 Days’ cleansing supplement programme. House of Provence also offers products for body and wellness, with the Panier des Sens cosmetics inspired by natural resources and based on natural formulations, while Savon Stories features a range of handcrafted organic skincare and remedies.
