Tues 5th June: Piers Atkinson Racing Season Pop-Up Shop

Just in time for Ascot (see the little horse above) and The Jubilee (see the Princess on the right at the top) Piers Atkinson has opened his very first pop-up shop for public punters to try on and purchase an original headpiece.  HRH Princess Beatrice wore a piece of Piers for the river pageant which is timely endorsement for his festive venture.  Nestled in the foyet of The St.Martins Lane Hotel in Covent Garden, Piers has taken over the space with a magnificent selection of small fascinators all the way thru to straw boaters to his famous neon signage name.  There are the latest collaboration hats with Zandra Rhodes and Andrew Logan accessories in addition to Andrew's mirror portrait of Anita Pallenberg to offer customers a reflection for viewing thier fittings!  Zandra Rhodes will be on hand at the shop on Thursday evening for an event of cone fir tea with the artists after the initial press party tomorrow.  I myself will be taking residency the following Thursday offering a bespoke gift wrapping service (with a smile), so pop down to say hello to us both .........
