Following my back to basics rant (!) this simple-but-chic ‘preview launch’ store just caught my eye: Fate London.
It’s elemental, dear Watson – with products arranged by material: WOOD & PAPER, METAL, GLASS & STONE, FIBRES. I love the Fort Standard stone trivets and candle holders: raw materials + geometric shapes = achingly cool.
Elsewhere, you’ll find beautiful stationery and accessories (including woven laptop cases from Pendleton, an American woollen mill) and elegant olive wood bowls. The collection is set to expand – this is just a ‘preview’ taster…so it’s one to bookmark, me-thinks.
