Plastic Big Bens, I Love London Ts, bearskin pencil cases – for a city with a reputation for design and creativity London’s souvenir’s are a pretty poor haul, no? Well, for one brief glorious moment that’s about to change. Charlene Lam of Creative Clerkenwell is curating a pop-up-shop full of London keepsakes that, in their own words, ‘don’t suck’. We were already lusting after Chisel & Mouse‘s amazing models of Brutalist architecture but they’re just the tip of a very cool iceberg. There are books, interior items, linocuts and sculptures, all from local designers, and all guaranteed to be an improvement on that teddy-in-a-guardsman’s-outfit.
