London print and others

London print and others

How strange to write about our London print and a few others, the day I left our London home for good. If you didn’t see the news on Instagram, we’ve sold our family home to live in France by the beach. I finished packing our belongings last night including the London print we had in the lounge, Steve is finalizing everything over the weekend and the removal company is coming on Monday. It is still too new for me to write anything about the move, leaving our family house and turning the page on 23 years of my life in London but I will eventually. However, I have received several messages and emails asking me about the BODIE and FOU prints we produced when I was running the shop so I thought I would share with you all the prints I have left in stock. I have only 4 designs left: LONDON, NEW-YORK, YOU ARE LOVED and BE HAPPY All the other designs are now sold out and I don’t think I will start production again …

BODIE and FOU pop-up store at the Vipp flagship store

The BODIE and FOU pop-up store opened its doors at the inspiring Vipp flagship store in Copenhagen on Saturday and started on a high, with the visit of her H.R.H. Princess Marie of Denmark who purchased our Limited Edition BODIE and FOU x Vipp15 bin.  Pretty amazing, isn’t it?! I was there when she was in the shop and asked her if I could take a picture of her with our bin but due to protocol, she kindly declined. The event has been a success and there is now only a couple of bins left in the shop which you can reserve but they will only be available for collection from the Vipp flagship store. However, fear not, Vipp is starting a waiting list and the BODIE and FOU x Vipp bin will be available at the end of the pop-up store and you can also pre-order it online from us.
