Selfridges has teamed up with online clothes exchange community LOANHOOD to launch a Swap Shop at their Oxford Street flagship. From 10th July, Selfridges shoppers can drop by with their pre-loved clothes and trade them in for tokens which they can then use to ‘shop’ a curated selection of secondhand pieces. A team of experts will be at the totally circular concept to value the items brought in by customers, and you’ll be able to exchange up to five pieces worth a value of £50 – £300. This will mark the first time Selfridges has ever run an initiative like this and it may be the last; the pop-up is on for just three weeks, so don’t miss out.

It’s the city’s favourite meme account and essential reading for anyone spending time in East London, and now @real_housewives_of_clapton is becoming really real with a limited-time collab at La Cave in Holborn. The subterranean bar that specialises in low-intervention wine has teamed up with RHOC to put together a menu inspired by the Instagram account’s tongue-in-cheek, satirical posts about London in the 2020s. Expect to see the likes of the Housewives’ Dinner (skewered Perelló olives, pickle chilli, Ortiz anchovies), Crisp Sandwich (focaccia, truffle mayo, Torres truffle crisps, prosciutto, rocket, fresh mozzarella), and Beans On Toast (sourdough toast, Mutti tomato, white beans, garlic & herbs) on the menu. Of course, there’ll be plenty of orange and biodynamic wines to pair it all with – chin chin!

Just like last year, Anya Hindmarch’s playful spirit is out in full force this summer with the return of her Ice Cream Project concept store, which is serving up scoops of Heinz Tomato Ketchup, Warbutons Crumpets. Bird’s Eye Petit Pois, Branston Pickle and Kikkoman Soy Sauce and Heinz Mayo flavoured ice creams. Yes really. The idea behind what is surely the wackiest ice cream parlour in town is to celebrate Anya Hindmarch’s fave brands (a nice tie-in to her latest accessories collection) by taking products that would typically be found in the pantry and putting them in the freezer instead. And if you’re not feeling so adventurous, you can get scoops of Rice Krispies, Coco Pops, Ambrosia Rice Pudding, Ribena, KP Salted Peanuts, McVitie’s Digestives and Tiptree Lemon Curd flavoured ice creams instead.

The Corner Shop at Selfridges has announced its latest pop-up, this time a valuing, repair and exchange service modelled after the London Stock Exchange. The Stock Market has transformed the ground level of the department store into a ‘trading floor’, complete with data-filled screens reminiscent of those found at the LSE. Guests will be able to bring along items from their wardrobe to be valued by Selfridges’ ‘stockbrokers’ (which you can sell for store credit) who’ll advise on how to increase that value by upcycling, whether through hand-beading moth holes or customising with frills and applique. You’ll also be able to repair and restore items with a helping hand from SOJO, The Handbag Clinic, Vintage Threads, and SneakersER.
