Boxing Day

Nearby where I am staying in London’s East End, on a previously neglected stretch of land by some abandoned railway tracks in trendy Shoreditch, there is the ingenious and of-the-moment Boxpark. Billed as “the world’s first pop-up mall,” you can find Boxparks in cities all over the world.  They are as simple as they are clever:  stacks of shipping containers fitted out as little retail outlets & available for rent. In Shoreditch, the top level houses restaurants & bars, the lower level is home to pop-up shops of all types.

In one such space, I found a collective of artisans’ works and today I want to show you the work of Nick Fraser.

I’d love one of his coat racks in aqua or white– they’d look great on raw brick or in a cottage for a more traditional look. They’d also add a bit of warmth to an ultra-modern space. You could hang coats, towels, scarves or jewellery from them.
