The new shop, at 138 Upper Street, will feature items donated by premium and luxury brands and retailers.All profits from sales in store go directly to Save the Children.Items on sale at its opening on Saturday 6 September include jewellery from Lestie Lee and Me & Zena, handbags from Sarah Forsyth, lighting and homeware from Pedlars, womenswear from Whistle & Wolf, Tiffany Rose and Lagom, tailored menswear from Thom Sweeney, and a collection of luxury men’s shoes from Mayfair cobbler Mr Hare.Cinema look in the redesignThe shop, a former bank, has been redesigned by interior designer Kate Monckton to look like a derelict picture house. This is a reflection of the area’s role in cinema history: Islington was once home to nearby Gainsborough Studios where Alfred Hitchcock started his career as a film director in the 1920s.Mary Portas said:“I am thrilled to announce the opening of the newest edition to our Living & Giving shops. Upper Street is a fabulous location and close to the heart of London’s creative industries. We are looking forward to getting to know our neighbours and creating a unique place where locals can get together and shop in an exciting new space.”.
