We’re loving Selfridges this month, where Project Earth has just launched with lots of commitments towards sustainability. We’ll be heading straight for the fashion department on Level 2 where Bay Garnett’s Oxfam pop up opens on 7 September and runs for a month. This will include 1500 hand-picked pieces from sequin skirts to silk shirts and Ossie Clark dresses, all with charity shop price tags. Read all about it here – the idea is to get people behind Oxfam’s #SecondHandSeptember campaign – of which Michaela Coel is this year’s face – and pledge to not buy anything new all month.
Whilst you’re in store check out the smart Repairs Concierge service that will mend handbags, shoes and clothes that are past their best, and the new HURR rental service that lets you rent dresses from just £20. There’s also masses of sustainable beauty on the ground floor including the REN Clean Skincare pop up that runs from now until October showcasing their new packaging that’s fully recyclable and made with sustainable materials. We’ve been trialling some of their gorgeous products and especially rate the Ready Steady Glow tonic for retaining post-holiday skin. Thank you Selfridges for giving us a good reason to return to the shops this September.
