There we go, we've just bought our tickets for The Tweed Run London 2015 this weekend! For those who haven't heard about it,  this is a metropolitan bicycle ride with a bit of style. They take to the streets in their well-pressed best, and cycle through the city's iconic landmarks.

Here is our selection of products we have prepared for you to be in the mood too. Very bristish. Hope you like it.



Handmade Saddle Bag


 
This bicycle bag is made with old-school British detailing using the finest leather to ensure durability. Created to carry your tools for the day, it's the perfect combination of utility and design. Agree?

Retro Ladie's and Men's Bikes

 

Inspired by 1950s and 60s California cycles, designed and hand assembled by United Cruiser in France, these stunning pieces of equipment have got to be the most beautiful bikes on the road today! You can't buy happiness but you can buy a bike and that's pretty close.

Leather Bluetooth Speaker

 

Who says Bluetooth speakers need to look like ugly plastic? Based on iconic transistor radio designs of the 1960s, we started with the highest quality audio circuitry and wrapped it in a classic hand sewn perforated leather case to protect it. Perfect to pop on your bike!

Harris Tweed Duffle Bag



Great for huntin', shootin' and fishin' (and for townies as well!), this British madebag comes in genuine 100% pure new wool Harris TweedLet's tweed then ;)

Just for Book Lovers

Posted on August 25, 2014 by ANAHI RODRIGUEZ | 0 Comments

Good day everyone! Today It's Bank Holiday so hope you're chillin' at home, relaxing and enjoying a good book in the best company.


 
I've been pinning a lot lately and I got a little obsessed with books so I decided to create this board just for Book Lovers, you'll love it for sure. To see more, click here. I was fascinated by the richness and colour of these bookshelves. 








This last one is the house of the Director of ELLE Decor Spain...Gooorgeous!
 
A couple of friends recently asked me which kind of book would be nice to have on their coffee tables and my answer to that was and still is - any book that gives you pleasure to look at. The majority of these must-have books are about Art & Photography or Travel. Pay attention, here are our suggestions for you.

  
 
1. Helmut Newton, a tribute to one of the 20th century’s most influential, intriguing and controversial photographers.
2. London, Portrait of a city. Be inspired by all its amazing culture and vibrancy from yesterday and today.
3. Peter Beard. A fascinating journey into this American artist's universe: opulent, bizarre, provocative, psychedelic, simply fantastic!  

And remember, "Book lovers never go to bed alone" ;)

Cycling Fever

Posted on August 14, 2014 by ANAHI RODRIGUEZ | 0 Comments

Unless you have been living under a rock for the past five years you will be aware that this country is in the grip of a cycling pandemic. Even the Tour de Francearrived this summer, with the Grand Départ in Yorkshire. All the brits are in the mood.

The number of Londoners cycling to work has doubled in the last ten years, with Londoners braving the busy roads to escape sweltering tube temperatures, chaotic rush hours and increased commuting costs. So is all about being ‘cycle-friendly’and I am quite like this as I was living in Aarhus last year and I must say that for Danes is a way of life, is part of their culture.

Cycling is one of the easiest ways to fit exercise into your daily routine because it's also a form of transport. It saves you money, gets you fit, reduces stress and is good for the environment...What else? Oh yes, cycling benefits the whole of London as it reduces pollution and drastically cuts congestion on public transport.

As the popularity of cycling grows and grows, here is our selection of products we have prepared for you to be in the mood too. Coming soon. Very bristish. Hope you like it.

One of a Kind - Nostalgie pieces

Posted on June 16, 2014 by ANAHI RODRIGUEZ | 1 Comment


This is one of the most unusual and also one of the favourite sections in our shop. That's the main reason for this post. Pian, pianino we have created a great collection of unique items carefully selected by us on our trips to different countries. Peter and I love to travel and discover precious objects that you normally can't find elsewhere. He loves the South of France, and knows almost every hidden market. So it's very exciting every time that he goes hunting...!

They are OOAK (One Of A Kind) because there is just ONE of each, as they are original vintage pieces. That's why they are so special. We only pick the ones that, despite being more than thirty years old, are still in very good condition. So, if you like something you'd better hurry...He who hesitates is lost! Take a look, check it out and you'll see.
