Marriott Hotels come to visit

19 Nov

NYC advertising giants Grey and global hospitality brand Marriott Hotels identified Pitifeld London as a location they would love to visit that reflects innovation in everyday life and which combined a shop, café and exhibition gallery so creatively. Go us!

Marriott’s Travel Brilliantly site launched a multi-channel marketing campaign, asking consumers for ideas on how to improve regular travel. A variety of unique ideas were then brought to a panel of judges and the winning concept was selected (more to be revealed by Marriott themselves). The winner was the lovely Anjana Kallarackal. Along with a media representative (top US food blogger Ashley from Not Without Salt) and teams from Marriott and Grey, Anjana was welcomed to Pitfield. They chatted to (and filmed!) owner Shaun Clarkson about his vision for the space and thoughts towards a healthy lifestyle.

We all had a fantastic time chatting about our food and design passions and can’t wait to see the film clips on the website shortly. Watch this space!

PS. In other news, Pitfield London is proud to be taking part in Shop Small and Small Business Saturday (7th December 2013)! American Express Cardmembers will receive a £5 statement credit when they spend £10 or more in participating stores – like us! Happy shopping…

 

Parties and Pop-Ups

The Pitfield London team had a fantastic time at our private view party celebrating the Fiona Paxton exhibition last Thursday. The fabulous duo behind our Pitfield People tumblr blog were on hand to capture the evening, which was buzzy and bustling! We wished the Fiona Paxton jewellery brand a happy 5th birthday whilst guests mingled in-store. Guests enjoyed refreshing Paloma cocktails courtesy of Jose Cuervo – the recipe uses tangy grapefruit soda, a squeeze of lime and fresh grapefruit garnishes. Simply delicious!

To get your paws on Fiona’s signature geometric designs, visit the exhibition until 24th November. Limited edition collaborative products (a playfully printed rug and luxurious cotton sateen cushions) will leave a legacy in store, available to purchase throughout the year in our shop.

It was great to see a brilliant turn out of Pitfield London’s dedicated customers, Fiona Paxton fans and press from the Mail on Sunday to top fashion magazines and bloggers. We hope everyone had an enjoyable evening!

We think the bold citrus colours with calming grey and pastel green looks divine. If you fancy escaping the city, don’t forget to pay The Brooks shopping centre a visit!

PITFIELD x PITCHOUGUINA

28 Oct

pitchouguina_32 pitchouguina_33 pitchouguina_ss14_london_bPitfield London loves helping out creatively and we often loan our one-off, quirky products to stylists, magazines and even other brands. Recently we were contacted by the lovely Anna at gorgeous designer fashion brand Pitchouguina. They’re a fellow East London based brand, with their studio in Hackney.

We love their dreamy pieces, delicate prints and use of soft textures. We couldn’t wait to see the shoot results of their sleek contemporary items next to our vintage gems. Our pretty French style garden chair (sadly now sold out) and vintage ladder worked a treat for their new Spring/Summer lookbook. Check out the tall steps on our website here, just £65…

Talking fashion, don’t forget we’ve teamed up with fabulous jewellery designer Fiona Paxton. The private view event is next week, 7th November, so don’t forget to get your RSVPs in to tess@shaunclarksonid.com if you haven’t responded already. Miss out on the invite? Sign up to our newsletter for future updates, exclusives and upcoming event details!

Today sees our deadgood Deadgood(!) exhibition come to an end following London Design Festival. In its place? Celebrated British jewellery designer and ex-textile designer extraordinaire, Fiona Paxton, will celebrate her brand’s 5th anniversary from the Pitfield London exhibition gallery.

We’ll present a series of rugs and cushions teamed with Fiona Paxton’s signature geometric designs – think deep blues, hazy maroons and finely sourced fabrics with playful prints!

Alongside the collaborative homeware pieces, Fiona will show a selection of her archive statement pieces from the past 10 seasons. With a modern global traveller aesthetic, the likes of Kate Moss and Rihanna have sported her Art Deco and modern architecture inspired jewellery pieces.

Catch the show from 24th October to 24th November.

On 7th November 6-9pm, we’ll celebrate with a private view party so if you’ve signed up to our mailing list look out for your invites, coming soon! The event is being sponsored by Jose Cuervo tequila who’ll be serving up delicious cocktails for the occasion – what’s not to love?

Are you a Pitfield Person?

“Attracting the creative and curious”

If you haven’t checked out Pitfield People yet, then where have you been? The Pitfield London team joined forces with a brilliant art director and copywriter extraordinaire to bring you a blog which wasn’t just about our next exhibitions, pop-ups, sales and updates (cough cough) but was about YOU! We felt our interesting customers deserved a shout out too and we were intrigued to know just what they were choosing in our café for lunch or shop for their own homes or family’s and friend’s gifts – did their choices inspire you?

We’ll be taking the concept to our brand new pop-up in Winchester (check out their brand new blog site!) which launches on the…. 14th of this month! Stay tuned via Facebook and Twitter for news of a very special soft launch a couple of days before. Shhh.

Back in London, we’re still enjoying our London Design Festival 2013 exhibition with Deadgood but, come the 24th October, the space will be transformed! Check back next week for another post on our collaboration with British jewellery designer Fiona Paxton.

Have a great week Pitfield people x
