Covent garden seems to getting all the good brand shops currently.

Most recently coming from the same birthplace as some other pretty successful brands (Cheap Monday, H&M) is Tshirt Store hailing form Sweden. This APril will see it's first UK store and bring all it's wonderfully simple T-shirts ands socks to central London. Tshirt store and its designs focus on quality and originality so we will have another haven for any lover of the graphic T.

Each print run of each T-Shirt is limited keeping all designs fresh and moving and making sure it is less likely that you will bump into someone and have to say snap (as that of course is what you do when you see someone wearing the same item of clothing as you). There are new designs every week that come form their team of in house designers who take inspiration from a tun of place, from art to music to the street.

The store will be open on the 1st April with over 80 T-shirt designs as well as outerwear and accessories (remember the socks we mentioned, nothing beats a good sock.).

Paisley, floral, upholstery inspired or even cowboy; there's a print for every guy at Topman.com. Check out their new exclusive online collection titled 'The Print Shirt' it ranges from £26-£34 so it won't leave a hole in your pocket. Wear them as stand alones, mix and match or just throw a hoodie over one. However you decide to drop it, you're sure to look fresh and ready for the summer. My favorite is the white paisley print shirt at £26 seen below.

I’ve had my eye on Lee Broom for a while. Since his days as the cutest VIP guestlist boy in London, to his transformation of one of the UK’s best bar chains into trendy venues and more recently his Elle Decoration award for best new UK designer. In current years Lee has emerged as one of London’s brightest new interior designers.  Having trained with Vivienne Westwood and graduating from Central St. Martin’s I always knew he was one to watch.  I was very excited at the launch of his new store inside London’s leading lifestyle hotspot, The Shop at Bluebird on Kings Road.

I enjoyed his latest pieces, including the popular disco themed collection, ‘One Light Only’.  An instant hit, they are so beautifully displayed, and I’m told were first showcased at the London Design Festival.

Not to be missed is the decadent Decanter range, my personal favourite, although I also loved the Broom’s new limited edition Decanterlight (Seen in photo below) this is sold exclusively at The Shop. Needless to say, I left the store with a much ‘lighter’ wallet!

asos to open facebook store

It seems the inevitable is happening, Facebook is actually turning into the Internet. We are starting to see why some are suggesting that such a large social network is actually damaging to the structure of the net. Ie if you never have to leave one place then the web gets closed off to groups and freedom of information and new information begins to cease to exist, any who, by then end of this month you won't have to leave Facebook to do your shopping if it's at ASOS. The online retailer are launching a new Facebook only shop where you can buy anything you would normally without leaving your trusted and friendly social network. This will be the first of it's kind for and in Europe and should manage to do pretty  well with ASOS's facebook fan page totally around 400,000. The site will have everything you would expect from an online shop including order tracking features and of course the ability to 'like' and 'share' your purchases with friends.

Congrats ASOS.
