Egg - London
Egg - possibly the most beautiful store in the world. On Kinnerton Mews, a lovely converted stable. A combination of natural clothing (Dosa, of course) and ceramics. Always the best display.
Always an inspiration to me. The first time i was there, the main room was bordered by big leafy cabbages, with clothes in whites, creams and pale greens. Another room with a table piled with indigo colored ceramics, the clothes indigo. Another room with a table piled with chocolate brown ceramics, the clothes chocolate brown. A separate space with farm table with a row of identical handmade sterling spoons, lined up from a tiny demi-tasse spoon at one end to quite a monster at the other end.
This time they were in the middle of re-displaying and wish I got a chance to see the result.
