12 Floral Street, Covent Garden.
A haven for pleasure and procrastination, Covent Garden is undoubtedly one of London’s top retail destinations. It’s home to countless international flagships, designer stores, and some of London’s most exciting new restaurants, from Apple to Chanel, Balthazar to Shake Shack. This the capital’s most upbeat, energetic, retail neighbourhood.
Located on Floral Street, this beautiful space has previously hosted Aubin and Wills and the Y3 store – this summer, it’s getting ready for your idea.
"Appear Here's Space for Ideas competition works for us in two ways; it’s a great way for Capco to help young brands showcase their ideas in Covent Garden and at the same time it delivers fresh new retail concepts and brands for our visitors."
Beverly Churchill, Creative Director, Capco
Unit 26, BOXPARK Shoreditch
BOXPARK is famed for regenerating East London’s high street with their, now iconic, black shipping containers. Throughout the year, these containers house an ever-changing lineup of brands and events including Nike, Replay and The Chicken Box.
BOXPARK is not only a popular tourist destination but also committed to supporting the local area. Local designers, craft-makers, artists and chefs, are invited along to host events, workshops and talks in BOXPARK, which means from day to night this destination is always buzzing with energy and activity.
Sitting right in the thick of it, you’ll find Unit 26. This space has previously helped brands such as Ibiza Rocks, Rains, Digital Shoreditch and Tea Pigs reach out to this creative audience.
"Boxpark is proud to support the Space for Ideas initiative. Pop up retailers are the future breeding ground for the next generation of Independent retailers!”
Roger Wade, CEO and Founder, BOXPARK
340 King’s Road, Chelsea
The King’s Road runs from leafy Fulham Broadway - home of Chelsea Football Club - right up to the source of Chelsea; the elegant Sloane Square. Made famous in the swinging sixties, the King’s Road is lined with classy cafes, bijou boutiques, and furnishing emporiums. This is now one of London’s swankiest shopping destinations.
From Graham & Green to Scandinavian Fashions and Willow Organic, 340 King’s Road has housed an undeniably stylish selection of brands. This summer, it’s your turn to showcase your idea in this iconic destination.
"We're excited to be supporting Appear Here's Space for Ideas competition and giving Britain's most exciting brands the opportunity to showcase their ideas in one of London's most iconic retail destinations, the King's Road. We are big believers in the importance of bringing new experiences to the high street and pop-up retail is a great way to ensure the King's Road stays fresh and relevant to its international audience.”
