That’s not all. A gifting area next door contains all manner of gifts for the home, accessories, stationery and travel. They can all be personalised in different ways, including complimentary leather embossing. Your gift can be wrapped up with exclusive printed and solid ribbon at various stations within the area, and embellished with gift cards personalised by paper-embossing machines, also within the store.

As Christopher Bailey, Burberry Chief Creative and CEO said:
“With the new extension to our Regent Street store we wanted to create a space where our customers can spend time relaxing and enjoying the world of Burberry in a more social environment. By blending our new café Thomas’s with a gifting area we are trying something new that we hope customers in our home town of London will enjoy.”

Londoners love new experiences, so Burberry has surely started a trend with this luxe combination of dining and gifting; Thomas’s is a truly English experience just off iconic Regent Street.

Cocktails at the General Store

SEEN is tireless in her cocktail research, and very much enjoyed travelling to Highbury last week to try The General Store’s new summer cocktail menu and to check out the new interior. She was delighted to sample a Honey Mimosa, very sweet and fruity and just the ticket after a hot journey. It was, as its name suggests, a Mimosa with just a touch of honey.

SEEN has long been an admirer of Alexandra Blum’s liminal and apocalyptic renderings of London’s urban spaces, in which the capital seems ever-changing. It is the artist’s job to capture not only space but the passage of time itself.

Love Hunt at the British Museum

SEEN had the pleasure (pun intended) of being invited to a ‘Love Hunt’ at the British Museum. The museum, founded in 1753, is committed to preserving art, culture and history, and has collected around 8 million objects. These artefacts come from every corner of the world, revealing a fragment of many significant moments in time, from Mesopotamia to the Vikings; from the Inuits to the Indians. So, when one embarks on a visit to the world famous British Museum, where does one start?
