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!
What’s more, just how wonderful is our pop-up, Pitfield Winchester looking? 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 London loves this time of year; we hope you had a happy Halloween and are looking forward to the fireworks still to come tomorrow! The winter celebrations don’t stop there as this Thursday, 7th November at 6-9pm, we’re celebrating our collaboration with jewellery designer Fiona Paxton… alongside the brand’s 5th birthday!
Not only is Fiona exhibiting her striking geometric pieces from the past 10 seasons, there’s also collaborative products to purchase exclusively from Pitfield. A striking handmade Indian rug, with Fiona Paxton’s recognisable playful print, is taking pride of place in the gallery. Cotton sateen cushions have also been designed with a bold print in gorgeous blue and purple shades – the designs are limited edition so grab them whilst you can.
If you’d like to join us for the private view party then please RSVP email@example.com by Wednesday 6th November to ensure you’re added to our guest-list on time. We look forward to meeting you there with grapefruit soda tequila cocktails in hand, courtesy of our brilliant drinks sponsor for the event, Jose Cuervo.
Don’t panic if you can’t make the party because the Fiona Paxton show will be in place until 24th November. See you at 31-35 Pitfield Street soon!
Pitfield 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 firstname.lastname@example.org if you haven’t responded already. Miss out on the invite?

This week, Wednesday 4th September 2013 to be exact, sees the launch of our next exhibition with contemporary furniture designers Deadgood - hence our self-satisfied blog post title!

Deadgood will exhibit the collaborative Plex Collection (alongside other pieces in a retrospective show).
