A ‘wild and rebellious’ new range of Fortnum & Mason chocolates. The bold new range appeals to a more adventurous audience through provocative flavor profiles and highly distinctive packaging featuring eclectic mixed-media collages: brambles, feathers, flowers, butterflies and foliage have been woven together in a deliberately dark and mysterious design. “This range is all about pushing the boundaries in terms of flavour, and some of the more experimental ingredients include yuzu & chilli, black truffle, and oud,” commented Chloé Templeman, Creative Director from Design Bridge London. “We see the range as a rebellious cousin to Fortnum & Mason’s English Handmade Chocolates, which are more traditional in character. The big challenge for this project was to bring the disruptive spirit of the new chocolates to life using a design that would appeal…

Church’s is a brand with a wealth of contemporary flair that complements its long tradition. With a family tree running back to 1617, when Anthony Church was born in Northampton, one of England’s centres for leather and footwear, the Church’s story really began in 1873 when Thomas, his wife Eliza and their two sons Alfred and William set up a small factory. Over the years, Church’s forged new paths for the footwear industry, introducing the concept of right and left shoes, revolutionary at the time in 1880, along with hitherto unheard-of half sizes. The brand’s first women’s shoe, “Arch-moulded”, shaped to the foot’s arch, arrived in 1920, and from then on Church’s continued to develop over the decades, retaining its British identity as well as exploring new style trends.

Brompton Road in Knightsbridge, London, it is owned by the state of Qatar. Occupying nearly one million square feet of retail space across 330 departments, Harrods is a one-stop shopping destination for luxury goods ranging from designer fashion and accessories to vintage Champagnes. The Harrods motto is Omnia Omnibus Ubique, which is Latin for “all things for all people, everywhere”. England’s firs escalator was opened here in November 1898. The three mile square area of Kensington and Knightsbridge which surrounds Harrods is known as the Tiara Triangle. It’s rumoured that 60% of Harrods customers live within the tiara triangle. Not surprisingly for a store with such high-heeled customers, Harrods introduced a dress code policy in 1989, and it still applies today. In 1986 Harrods’ owner Mohammed Al Fayed launched a legal campaign against Henry Harrod, a…
