Since their launch in April the fabulous interiors company, House of Hackney have gone from strength to strength. They are to team up with the uber cool US retailer/brand Opening Ceremony to create a clothing range, which will be in store and online in the Autumn. As the founder Freida Gormley used to be a buyer for Top Shop, this makes perfect sense.
Their most recent collaboration is with one of my favourite East end restaurants, Bistrotheque. Open for dinner every night and brunch at the weekends, Bistrotheque has been loved by the fashion pack since it opened seven years ago. I particularly love the cabaret room which regularly features some of London’s best drag artists (check out The Lipsinkers, if you love all things camp!). Opening on July the 27th the House of Hackney team will turn Bistrotheque’s downstairs bar into a decadent Victorian gin den, which will run until January 2012.
Check out the House of Hackney blog too, for some really inspiring images.
