Back in April we sent out a call for all you creative types to start sending your beautifully designed envelopes to the new Paul Smith store at 46 Beak Street, and send them you did, in droves! As of today, you’ll be pleased to hear, Beak Street’s door are officially open and not only do the envelopes take pride of place on a wall for customers to examine at their leisure, but we were honoured to be invited to co-host the opening party last night.

Unsurprisingly, it’s beautifully decorated; Sir Paul is famous for his love of all things weird and wonderful and the huge collection of artwork which adorns the walls of his new store is quite the testament to his eclecticism. Add in a selection of preserved bugs in glass boxes, totem poles of shoes in the window displays, a rocking chair like none I’ve ever seen before and plenty of lovely garments and you have yourself a shop interior to while away your day in (Days? Weeks? Hell, we’re moving in).
